    i'm scared

    had to bring this one back after reading it again

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I feel something looming in the night sky
    people looking at me with a shiest eye
    I might sigh and say, "My... what a beautiful day."
    but, inside i'm like, "Hurry up and buy, sale, bye!"

    Quick transactions due to a lack of social prowess
    Call me a shy but, i'm scared to get to know you
    I might have to owe you or blow you to smitherines
    i'm scared of myself mostly...

    A ghostly being makes me rage against the machine
    knowing i'll be crushed like a jelly bean
    this seldom seen thing called Eloheem
    makes me sing Billy Jean
    as if the kid is not my prince and i am not a king
    my queen screams green as i try to remain clean
    not knowing she means c.r.e.a.m. 'cause cash.rules.everything.
    around me is a dream with demons and dope fiends
    ballers and bling, bling and my choices in between

    the more i think the more i thank a higher rank than nation's lead
    separate church and state God's Prayer and nation's creed...

    give me an "A" give me an "L" give me an "L"
    All's well that ends well i pray i don't fail
    i won't see you in hell, i'll watch from heaven
    from Bethlehem Baptist or Mosque no. 7

    i'm afraid these days because every front page
    begins with GAYS, MURDER or A.I.D.S.

    headed to work while my wife's upset
    the debt's make threats to collect and repossess
    feeling forsaken as I awake in a puddle of sweat
    tilling until my death until i'm out of breath

    i'm so scared of that scenario
    that i run through the barrio
    spreading ghetto gospel with a cup in hand

    only to end up on a corner
    with a mental disorder on the border
    where the poor-righteous stand

    I might just be trippin' but, something feels missing
    is it money? funny, some say i need an *** whippin'
    i'm scared of confrontation so, i got myself a gun
    only to end up in court where many black men are hung

    i feel like that cowardly lion who forgot that he's from judah
    sometimes i feel like slappin' somebody just like Luda...

    Christ, Krishna, Buddha, Alpha, Omega, Last...
    but, not least who is Jesus? i'm too scared to ask
    if i remove the mask and take up the task
    to alert the mass about a hidden past...
    will i recycle a bunch of trash
    out of poppa's brand new bag?

    i'm scared of wasting time
    on a state of mind full of hate crimes
    only to find myself blind to the facts I try to find

    a million marched and another million ended up dyin'
    i'm scared to get to Mt. Zion and not be accepted
    rejected because my past reflected
    makes me look disease-infested

    well, if Lazarus was ressurected and Magic was accepted
    why was Jesus disrespected and Afriqa neglected?
    Ye though I walk through the Valley of Death...
    I was so scared I almost wet myself

    Don't get me wrong, I fear no man
    from Hogan to Conan dadada mean, bro' ham?

    i'm only scared of something massive yet keen
    passive but, mean huge and lean
    big, bold, black, red and green
    i don't ask who, what, when,where, why, how?
    i'm glad to have this fear that allows me to bow
    AMON

    The best thing is when we are able to somehow conquer those fears that we never thought we could. Do flow on poet.

    Hi
    Yeah I'm scared to.
    For real.
    I see how your fear is keeping you sharp
    Keep speaking it dropping it
    We are all feeling it brother

    Peace

    EY YOW!!!

    That was wicked how you kicked it.

    My Brother I bow to you and pray that the Ancestors will guide my pen to a similiar place. Thank you for being an inspiration, G(od).

    One.
