    mannn i would have posted the other 4 but they str8 ********.......i dunno i might though

    A keystyle

    i'm going through some trouble times
    and it's breaking me down inside
    holding back these tears is a struggle
    the pain i feel, is beyond measures
    i feel like screaming until my head explodes
    i feel like screaming until my head explodes
    i feel like screaming until my head explodes
    i want to fly and soar, above my problems
    i want to fly and soar, above this crazy place
    i want to fly
    how is it that i'm still breathing with no heartbeat?
    how is it that i'm still breathing with no heartbeat?
    how is it that i'm still walkin with no direction?
    excuse me, do you know where i can find heaven?
    excuse me, do you know where i can find heaven?
    oh i'm sorry, you say this place is hell?
    oh i'm sorry, you say heaven is another life away?
    oh i'm sorry, you say i might as well stay?
    because nobody from hell has made it?
    have you heard of faith?
    well old man, i'm off to find it

    18 worthless years
    hey i know 18 dead people
    coincidence?
    when i turn 19 i wonder who will be next
    i seen a girl crying today
    kia didn't have to explain why
    standing from a far distance, you could see her black eye
    i saw a little boy today
    he looked at me as if he never seen a man before
    yeah that's right
    his father got murder a few years ago
    today, i took a long walk
    stood on the corner
    where my mother bough her herion
    today, i took a long walk
    i strayed into a woody park, i heard from whispers my daddy use to sleep in
    today i took a long walk
    and stopped in front, of the hospital both my parents died in
    losing their battles agaisnt aids
    I walked even more, but decided i shouldn't visit their graves
    i'm tired
    not sleepy
    but frustrated
    i have so many questions
    but nodoby seems not to have an answer
    lord do you?
    lord i said do you?
    everybody else says you do
    but why come i can never hear you?
    i started writing when i was about 8 or 9
    never did i know this was to become my life
    with emotions so powerful
    my mind and left hand controls
    so poweful i think i can hear the yellow paper desperately scream
    screams that arouses me....even more
    to write what i so personally hold
    not giving a **** about spelling or sentence structure
    **** haikus and sonnets
    what i write is fierce scriptures
    i write in rage
    with a suffusing aroma of that ***** they call mary jane
    killing and killing and killing every page
    my red ink rapes
    i'm sorry to offend who ever shall read
    just understand me at the least
    i'm lost
    july 5, 1984 a woman gave birth to a baby who bore no cause
    dear god, just a whisper, eva so soft
    dear god, just a whisper, eva so soft
    my words will fo'eva stop
    dear god, just a whisper eva so soft
    my words will fo'eva stop

    come again

    "Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?"-Tupac Shakaur and Nikki Giovanni check em out!
    This was so reminiscent of the purging sonnets of the great
    urban poets like Giovanni and Baldwin! This was the sho nuff
    sho nuff! You did the Destee proud, so glad that you share this power piece/peace! Those raging spirits are creative spirits with a need for a place to take root and grow..."Did you hear about the Rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?" Don't ask me why ask me how?" Check it!

    Blessings On Ya House!:peace: :peace: :peace: :peace: :peace:
