    This dot

    I’m with ya

    Heaven Knows

    Lord, I’m frustrated
    I just made it
    Barely getting by
    Wondering why those who get blessed lie
    Is it something I’m doing?
    Nobody but me
    I’m just trying to taste my next tea
    Is it something bigger?
    I gotta suffer for
    Another destiny

    Cuz I been wanting to fly
    Like a bird in the sky
    But I’m down with no wings
    Lord I wanna sing

    And every time I grind
    I never see an end
    Why every time I go outside
    Shade on my eyes
    The world is deaf
    Nobody hears my cries
    But I know you know
    The way my pain flows
    Thru my veins
    I need a exit out this game

    Cuz I been wanting to fly
    Like a bird in the sky
    But I’m down with no wings
    Lord I wanna sing

    And why you let me go without when my friends
    Holding on
    And you tell me hold a grease stick in the mountain
    Tellin me I can climb
    I know you know me
    Let me breathe
    I lost my motivation to inhale
    Seems like all the pain is what I inhale
    Too much weight adjust my scale
    You not blind, you can read my heart in braile

    I just want to fly
    And move to the next world
    A world for me
    Where I won’t cry
    And my friends won’t lie
    And peace flies
    Heaven knows
    Tell me heaven knows

    To be in another space, where our troubles are not so heavy, God can bring us the ease to take us there, feeling this flow.

    Deeply emotive scribe...
    the sentiment leaps from
    the page...the words
    all to familiar...
    but gold without fire...
    is never pure gold
    I'm resigned to believe
    my struggles will make
    me the phenomenal person
    he wants me to be...
    if it's comes easy...
    it doesn't hold the
    same value...
    so heaven does know...
    it knows.. :wink:

    Loving this flow!
