    I already know what state I'm in
    Some people don't comprehend
    Cuz sometimes you feel like this shhhhh is crazy
    And it's going to drive you there

    I already know it
    When a bad things bout to happen cuz I can feel it in my bones
    It's like a sixth sense
    I can sense it when nobody knows

    I already know that life is short so you better get with it
    But you still have to take baby steps
    Cuz if you take leaps and blounds you might flip it

    I already know i look innocent and sweet
    and that the dudes on the street be lookin at me like fresh meat
    I already know that some go with the stereo type of my skin and think that I'm an air head and that I owe them something but i really dont

    They owe themselves not to believe the hype and find hope in themselves
    I already know that the odds are stacked against me
    And that I'm realizin it's a mans world
    Not only that but it's a dirty world
    Where you have to play by its dirty tricks

    I already know that sometimes I can be selfish when I want something really bad
    I can taste it
    I already know what I am and where I am
    cuz I am who I am
    And know that if I would have given in I would have missed it

    I already know that I have come to the point of no return
    And I've stopped here
    Not knowing where to burn, to put it gently
    And I just don't give a [email protected] anymore
    if anyone thinks it

    I already know that I'm LOUD
    I already know that I talk a lot
    I already know that I can be STRONG WILLED
    and HARD HEADED
    but if you catch me in this state just know that I MEANT IT

    I already know that my boat has drifted
    I already know it.

    The things that the third eye can see, yet we do it anyway despite the price that might be paid for it. Wonderfully posed poet, loved it.

    I know what you are here for
    But im going to show you more
    Even though i know haters are waiting
    My armour is pretty da-- strong
    If its meant to be
    Lord knows its meant to be
    I already got love for you sista
    I already stopped slanging for you sista
    I already got my life back for you sista
    I already know what you have is precious
    Not be the way of your skin
    Yet the way other men knowing they could have you
    And then when you think its over
    My love just stars to shine
    Drift a little closer
    Ill show you love everytime!!

    Much Love Sista Desert

    UM your boat didn't drift
    and give yourself more credit
    don't let those negative people bring you down
    man get at me
    you need to be around positive people
    and no you don't owe them nizzaz in the street nothing
    and don't feel that you should

    hey it's all about you
    DS

    get on your job
