    Life becomes it's own rhythm flow
    it's like passing windz that daily blow
    we yet to understand how it work
    nor how da hard tymes shape our soul
    left here on earth to blend n' mold

    With every essence to be reality
    we forget and face da fantasy wit
    da reflect of hopes and dreams
    avoided to hinder our growth
    we now parallel for da world to see

    I now reveal thou strength of love
    to mirror through da likes soul by soul
    wit self discovery of gifts from above
    not wanting to be different by yesterday
    on choices that shape us today

    Life's measures is what one make
    not by fate yet choices made
    if i had my wish, da wish of us
    not in foolishly but in love n' growth
    mindz of movement to counter these measures
    life have delt us to live

    Together we can go forth
    divided we will fall far and between
    can u not stand beside me
    build the determination of the magnitude
    of a quantity by comparison with a standard
    One which we stand in these life measures.

    Pt. II of life delt

    What's been delt us has been measured
    on self determination and will
    by da body of power we composed within

    Life has blinded and foresaken,yet forgiven
    each step made we took beyond reasons
    our flair poeticly, has given "light" yet darkness
    again i have come to the end of my walk

    Da maze and struggle, our hope and dreamz
    alive at it's peak of day as night falls upon
    the glist of what morrow brings against me
    as i look through da window glass of faith

    These measures become whole to behold
    on bending knees, I know there's reality
    awaiting us in da hour as we awaken
    from da slumber of lies and destruction
    life's measures is world wide.
