    my instinct
    my life
    my brain
    my strife
    my friends
    my foes
    it all comes and it goes
    my ideas
    my doubts
    my pride
    my mouth
    my hands
    and my feet
    my journey is no where near complete
    the questions
    no answers
    before today
    the day after
    its all the same
    deads end
    wish it'd get here faster
    the mockery
    the gossip
    the popularity
    the ones who knock it
    my bed
    my room
    this head
    these thoughts consume
    the rumors
    the lies
    these days
    that barely pass by
    my tears
    my joy
    these crazy *ss girls
    these nasty *ss boys
    my intentions
    my rights
    the pathway of ease
    the passion I fight
    the signs
    I ignore
    solemnly pass
    sometimes explore
    these eyes
    those eyes
    those tongues
    the tongue I bite
    curiosity
    forced to be searched
    minds spinnin
    as fast as the earth
    the colleges
    the decisions
    the rules and regulations
    the split of division
    the rage
    all it takes is patience
    our struggle and ignorance
    as a nation
    the kicks
    the screams
    the brokens promises
    to these ambitious dreams
    my ups
    my downs
    my inbetweens
    the royality ive been crowned
    tha stares
    the hype
    held in the air
    like a ****** kite
    the money
    the drama
    my absent-minded daddy
    my stress afflicted mama
    my siblings
    my footsteps
    the age gap
    the things i put up with
    my ball n hoop
    my pen n paper
    the critics on aol
    the sideline haterz
    my friends
    their babies
    the dead beat daddies
    life is gettin crazy
    the sex
    no love
    one type of affection
    no kisses, no hugs
    our jobs as kids
    our responsibility as adults
    the laws we break
    the judges we consult
    the church
    our god
    our sins n blessings
    but our prayers shouldnt stop
    the information
    the facts, the opinions
    the authors, the readers
    the fantasy, the realistic
    the guns
    the so called "brave"
    BOOM! CLAP!
    6 ft deep graves
    the government
    the minorities
    the wealthy
    and their priorities
    the schools
    the education
    the teachers
    the molestation
    the sun
    the rain
    doesnt matter
    if all u feel is pain
    the minds
    the garbage
    the lies
    that we're guarding
    the opportunity
    the time thats wasted
    the knowledge to gain
    the minds that are played with
    the fans
    field, stage, & court
    the activism
    the levels of SUPPORT
    my window
    my sight
    these computers
    these chats n websites
    the guilty
    the innocent
    deathrow
    free or jailsent
    my directions
    my map
    my choices
    the objects that distract
    the people
    yes... the people

    ****! THIS IS LIFE!!

    Whewwwwwwwwwwwww!

    This poet, did write of life, and nobody came...they have only themselves to blame, if they don't get ahead in this game. The knowledge from streets or from college, is here for the taking don't be mistaken...it's time for you to come to the table if you're able...Read, concede, we are not here to compete, we are here to feed and get what we need!
    No joke, I love every line that you wrote!
    Blessings On Ya House!:toast:

    life is all,
    that you done wrote.
    words all caught up,
    deep in my throat.
    cuz i don't know what to say,
    to something so deep.
    poetry is all,
    that my mind can speak.
    so keep coming at me,
    with all that you say.
    words is just the half of it,
    use all you can today.............
