    dayz gettin hard, but i continue to fly higher
    girl left me, broken leg, but sh** couldnt be brighter
    what was once loose, got tighter
    holdin on to me tight like some pliers
    as long as i do my thing im not worried
    i know i can afford to fall once, even supaheroes bleed
    i know ima grow, i just planted the seed
    hataz r everywhere tho, so i guess i gotta feed
    i got bigga and betta
    things to do
    like i said b4- gotta get my ish togetha
    fight on, never surrenda
    i cant, i gotta make progress
    my siblins wanna follow in my footsteps
    gotta get my chedda, my parents depend on my success
    knowledge is power, so i gotta excell in the classroom
    bright as the stars and calm as the moon
    if sumthin is gonna happen, betta happen soon
    if we dont react now, we're only waitin for doom
    i didnt come on here to criticize or boast
    just write, learn, and quote
    reach for the stars, as high as they float
    catch up to life, as fast as it grows
    hopefully i create more poetry, more rhymes, more thoughts
    from SwtT, $$Rich$$, LovelyGoldenOne, 1poetsought
    dont feel left out yall, ive read all the flows on here thats been brought
    u get my drift, u understand my plot

    man... i just gotta write tonight.

    im young, tryna make it out the struggle
    hold this rock of delivery,not tryna fumble
    its okay if i slip, trip, or tumble
    even tho ppl in the hood wanna see me crumble
    im famous in these parts so i gotta stay humble
    even tho its hard walkin down this tunnel
    i know u feel me? some of yall got to
    and if u dont... man u ought to
    read this, hear my rhythm, let it rock u
    evil is lurkin, so dont let it stop u
    if u got dreams, let em take u away
    i know times are bad, but there will be a new day
    just pump ur fists, stand tall, and say
    i believe, ill achieve, even if others dont
    some have failed, but i wont
    who was that that needed prayer? what is serenti-poet? dont worry i got u
    anybody else? dont worry i got u too
    and i hope life gets better and faith is brought to u
    just know many ppl wont understand,so u gotta just do u

    man... i just gotta write tonight.

    theres a war and we're sittin here eatin n laughin
    people found dead, poor, while bullets are passin
    im beginnin to think theres no difference between earth and hell
    ur soul burns down there, u burn up here, heaven is our only ticket to bail.
    freedom isnt really granted, we still locked in a jail
    mentally, not physically, it all depends on the bounderies of one's self
    where we goin? we dont know, only time will tell
    what happened to cookouts and family reunions, 10 cent candybars? now only sex sells
    what happened to neighborhood tag, old fashioned baseball, we got aol now, no need for mail

    well im out of thoughts,man... i just had to write tonight.

    dis was da bomb
    reality wordz flow from ya tongue
    vibing da mix of tyte scribe
    what a reality ride
    continue to write
    at the end theirs a light
    fight off any prey
    bring it on do it dis way
    dis was a hit
    go on u can vent
    many face the walls of hell
    like it's some crazy spell
    but surely we all pervell
    from dis earthly hell
    one way ticket is up
    time come fly high to heavenly skies
    the best ride a place to reside
    hang our head we're doom
    so uplift the chin dig deep within
    and write dis flow poeticlyspeakin is TYTEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

    write write write !!! late night !
