    Life...

    In need of some soul searching...

    Clearer thoughts ease the mind while
    seeking for that which at times is hard
    to find

    Peace of mind...

    Speaking directly to a reflection in need
    of correction for I have sinned...

    I’ve done somethings I shouldn’t have done
    I’ve gone some places I shouldn’t have gone
    I’ve even said somethings I shouldn’t have said

    But I’ve been spared...

    Living day to day on this suicidal mission
    Feelin the pain of self inflicted wounds
    I’ve created
    Thinking I’m some celestial being as my
    momma would have it
    Sorry Momma!
    Maybe by Spirit
    But the Flesh is weak
    Inspite of my soul that wishes to speak....

    My mind runs deep reminiscing about
    the times I should have been dead for
    selling my soul to the devil moving at
    different levels
    Perpetrating life as some game seeking
    for fortune and fame when the most important
    thing is life...

    More precious than rare jewels

    Life...

    A gift!

    Life...
