    MY CENTER…
    IF I WAS A GENIUS I COULD NOT INVENT HIM…
    HE IS THE KING OF MY CASTLE…
    THE FRINGE ON MY TASSEL…
    THE MEANS BY WHICH I NAVIGATE LIFE’S HASSLE…
    HOLD ME DOWN PA…
    EVEN WHEN I DON’T HEAR THE SOUND PA…
    OF THE WISDOM YOU TRY TO LAY DOWN PA…
    I LOVE YOU AS THE LIFE THAT YOU BREED…
    THE BREATH OF FRESH AIR THAT I NEED

    MY CENTER…
    THOUGHT I WAS ALIVE BEFORE I MET HIM…
    BUT HAD NOT BEEN BORN YET THEN GOD SENT HIM…
    FLOATING IN THE PLACENTA OF WHAT WAS THE BIRTH OF MY EVOLUTION…
    EVEN THOUGHT I UNDERSTOOD REVOLUTION…
    TILL I FOUND WHAT I LIVE FOR…
    IF ONLY I COULD GIVE MORE…
    THEN IT WOULD MATCH WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME

    MY CENTER…
    YOU GIVE ME BALANCE WHEN I AM OFF…
    YOU TAKE CARE OF ME WHEN YOU HEAR A COUGH…
    YOU GET ME TO DIG MYSELF I’M WRONG…
    I YEARN TO HEAR YOUR SONG…
    AS YOU ARE THE ANGEL WITH THE GUIDING LIGHT…
    YOU THROW IN A LITTLE PASSION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT…
    AND YOU’RE RIGHT THERE WITH ME IN THE HEAT OF THE FIGHT

    MY CENTER…
    THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I CANT SEE IT…
    WHEN IT IS MY TURN FOR THE DIFFERENCE YOU ENCOURAGE ME TO BE IT…
    WHEN TROUBLE COMES UP TO LIVE FOR US WE FLEE IT…
    WHEN I GET HOME UPSET MY TEMPER YOU HELP ME EASE IT…
    YOU SEE IT…
    WEAK MINDS DISAGREE IT…
    WHEN IT COMES TO BEING WITH THEY CANT BELIEVE IT…

    MY CENTER…
    WHEN I NEED TO GET IT OFF MY MIND YOU’RE THE VENTER…
    WHEN I WISH TO FEEL HEAT YOU ENTER…
    DID I SAY I LOVE YOU…
    DID I PLACE ANYONE ABOVE YOU…
    IF DOVING WAS STRONG EXPRESSION I DOVE YOU…
    ANYONE TRY TO TAKE YOU AWAY, IF YOU WANT TO GO I LET YOU, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU

    MY CENTER…
    YOU ARE THE LEFT WHEN I’M RIGHT…
    YOU FEEL MY BODY IF IT’S LOOSE OR TIGHT…
    IF I HAVE TO CRY FOR WHAT I FEEL FOR YOU, YOUR RIGHT…
    YOUR FRUIT IS BOUNTIFUL I CAN ONLY BITE…
    YOU ARE THE SCIENCE OF MY CURRICULUM…
    YOU ARE THE PIT UNDER MY PENDULUM…
    AND IF PEANUT BUTTER NEEDS JELLY ON THE BREAD…
    I NEED YOU IN MY LIFE THAT’S ONE FOR THE HEAD

    MY CENTER…
    I LOVE AND NEED YOU …
    IF I COULD GET MORE OF YOU THEN I GREED YOU…
    IF I COULD PLANT MYSELF IN YOU THEN I SEED YOU…
    SONS AND DAUGHTERS ARE WHAT WE CAN HAVE…
    AND I’M GLAD THAT I HAD THE CHANCE TO GET WITH YOU AND BE BAD…
    AND YOU KNOW WHAT …
    IF SOMEONE MAKES YOU UNHAPPY IT MAKES ME MAD…

    MY CENTER…

    This was endearing and playful with a powerful sense of the one whom keeps you in the place and space you need to be. Do flow on.

    It's always nice to know, that when you lose your footing your center will keep you grounded!

    Beautiful piece!
