    ~They say some of us have angels. Lying sonofabitches. I've been tryin to fly for almost 19 years now. I got less than 6 years to live, i'm trying desperately to get my feet up off the ground~

    my childhood is the reason for my dead eyes
    my childhood is the reason for my drug addiction
    but my words are clean
    they cleanse the painful memories
    i wish i could rid the crack fiend's blood that runs through me
    i want no part of her
    i wish i could rid the crack fiend's blood that runs though me
    i want no part of him
    i'll never be pure because of them
    i stopped cryin after i seen death
    i was present when she said she loved me through her last breath
    she knew she was too late
    i let her hand go and walked away
    her words still haunt me
    they follow me
    they wont let me sleep
    they wont let me eat
    they hold my lips together when i try to scream
    they're building an uncontrollable rage deep inside me
    they're killin me
    there's no escape when a mother's words becomes your own worst enemy
    only if my words had the strength
    to defeat
    such a curse
    my writings
    my only hope
    will end
    and there will be no more Mind bo~dy n $oul
    no more blaq poet
    no more malik...no more pain
    is it wrong to call that my destiny?
    is there a destiny?
    fate?
    reason?
    jesus n god or mohammed n allah?
    who knows
    the world is changin
    and i'm still sniffin on white rows
    the world is changin
    my words can't save my decayin soul
    the world is changin
    and it hurts to watch my daughter grow....

    my words...
    i don't know poetry
    cause i only know pain...

    Keep seeking God's face in truth
    and He will find you
    Satan is the prince of this air for now
    but when God brings His truth
    there will be enough for all who seek Him
    So much soul searchin' and truth seeking
    happening here on this site and in this poem
    I'm blown away!
    God bless!

    I feel this like it's my own pain...both parents addicted to crack, two adopted sisters born on it...There are angels and we will all fly....this just ain't the place to do it....we'll fly higher than this sucka filled world.

    i loved it!!!! thanks
