    If life were a game
    what would the objective be

    Well I'm trapped in this body
    so I must gotta get free

    but free from what
    hmmmm

    who really knows

    should i get rich
    or die tryin

    should i seek truth
    or die lyin

    or perhaps
    i need to find the original me

    ya know
    like my flow

    then i can be alive
    and

    still get tah go.... get tah go

    go where
    well

    where ever
    i wish

    but first i gotta
    cleanse me

    water
    fruit
    vegatables
    fish

    no drugs
    and what would drugs be

    anything that changes
    ur conciousness.... unnaturally

    i can think
    i can choose

    to discipline myself
    that's what sets humanity

    a part
    from everything else

    my stomache doesn't
    produce enough acid

    to break down flesh

    diabetes
    heart disease
    death at it's best

    it's that
    pleasure principle

    that's gettin u
    confused

    u r what u consume
    those r the rules

    but life's not a game
    it's a journey to complete

    be kind to yourself

    because everything else
    is how u cheat

    U said a mouth full sis , words of truth
    be fair to self beyond inner games that will leave one
    stumbling wit much shame but live life to the fullest
    on a path for thee and free that will bring joy
    I really love this piece of creativity

    Being kind to ourselves should be simple, but we've learned complex ways of destroying ourselves. Words to the wise here poetess.

    this is hot

    we are all products of this eurotrix

    some are blind, some know but don't want to know, some just want to live

    either way we're standing pat while we are dying literally

    and life IS NOT a game

    i'm so glad the civil rights movement didn't have the punk'd out mentality

    imagine! we would still have separate water fountains

    amazing

    your piece touched a cord of righteous keep reaching but don't flood your brain with words flood your brain with spirit, the true spirit it is there

    and you DON'T need "words" to find it

    peace sista ML
