    My heart
    my foundation
    my last hope
    in it's depth
    broken into fragments
    of pain...
    some how, some way...
    i still manage to breathe the air
    of a new day...
    the air makes way to a
    heartless soul
    to bring new
    life...
    but it always fails
    time after time...
    is it possible to hear
    the voice of an angel...
    if you have no belief
    in it's creator...?
    walking on the same path
    of my makers...
    tears and ashes of weed
    fallin on my pen
    to my yellow paper....
    then a soft melody
    comes to play...
    19 years i've been haunted
    by the curse that has
    the last say...
    i stop living for reason
    when i learned you could die any
    day...
    they say you can hold
    the hands of god
    and he'll show you
    the way...
    today, i stretched my hands to the skies
    and got nothing but air and blinding
    sun rays...
    **** a god, cause i only need
    a pen and purple haze
    to ease the mournful pain...
    my name is King (Malik)
    and i have no
    self control...
    cant even give my daughter a kiss
    without her asking what's that white stuff around
    my nostrils...
    i'm slowly realizin
    mary jane..
    is once again, beginnin to be
    my gateway...
    between these lines
    this king will become
    a slave...
    to the same substance
    that ruined his mohter life
    in the 80's...
    weakness and addiction
    runs through these blood
    viens...
    never wanted any
    offsprings...
    in memphis the apples doesnt fall
    to far away from their
    trees...
    nights i find myself
    naked, body curled
    in the death
    ball...
    My name is King
    i had no rise, but this is my
    downfall...

    TOO FAR DOWN

    King... (as in King Jesus)
    Don't fall by the wayside
    Without tryin' God's Holy Ride

    You have a God given talent, thanks for sharing! ;) :heart:
