    You think I
    care about dyin'?
    I die
    every day
    Every breath
    I breathe
    I inhale disease
    Continue?
    Now if I may
    It’s fundamental
    I was
    dying to live
    I thought
    it was so simple

    Standing
    at the crossroad
    of life
    Which way
    to turn
    Trying to
    figure this out
    To stubborn
    to learn
    Playing with fire
    yes I’m bound
    to get burned
    Being
    too impatient
    for not waiting
    my turn

    I came
    to a point
    I was trying
    to give a :censored:
    I’m taking life
    on
    with a bum rush
    Stand in my way
    be prepared to duck
    If you looking
    for sympathy
    then you
    sshh
    out of luck

    Every man
    for himself for all
    intent and purposes
    Ring
    around the rosy
    tells you
    what a circus is
    Going around
    in circles
    wonder what
    the focus is
    Ignorance is bliss
    can’t figure
    what hopeless is

    I’ve
    already died once today
    tomorrow I get to do it again
    I can’t bring back yesterday
    the future is intent
    It’s like
    ground hogs day
    but in reverse and in tint
    Until I die
    that “day
    and
    meet the end

    This was my favorite part. The view feels negative but is sadly the reality of many.

    Ignorance is bliss, til we find out what we've truly missed, and the cycle continues. Do flow on poet.

    Wow poet, a poem like this makes me wish
    that my hands were really big enough
    to hold you, and caress your soul, when the tide has become too rough
    a poem like this really does makes me wish that there were a such thing as
    enough love
    to wrap you up like the laces of your timbs
    and watch the surrendering of a real thug
    a poem like this really does make me think and pray for all who may not know
    That he has the power to change all things
    and make the love inside of man's heart
    grow.
    Bless up Poet, beautiful write.
