    Sittin here.....
    on this cliff......
    Watchin my life slowly...
    Like it's some type of movie....
    Rated R....
    Becuz of the love that I have questioned
    And the heartbreak that I'm bound to take


    I' have so many years left.....
    Yet, I'm sittin on the edge of this cliff....
    This...
    3,596 foot deep rock water fall..
    I wonder if I'll scream going down..

    All the taunts...
    They don't get to me...
    All the tricks that are standing on the corner..
    Waiting for sumthing to pop off who taunt me..
    For having sumthing better to do than
    Waiting on a corner so that..
    i can talk to a *****
    Who wants to "talk" to me
    Bein broken into again
    Ain't what I'm looking for

    God could grant me an entire fortune
    aOr in two hours..I
    could meet my future husband...
    Yet...
    I am here...
    Sittin on the edge of this cliff

    Waiting...for a miracle to save me
    Waiting ...for sumthing I cannot see
    Or will it be too fast that...

    I wonder what will be the last thing I remember...
    Will it be my screams?
    The tears in my eyes?
    Or the reason why I'm here.......

    don't look down

    baby don't look down
    instead look around
    from your toes to the horizon
    eyes beyond the corner
    I'm feelin' your mind reach
    past the mundane
    maybe the ache of growin' pains
    count it all as gain
    naw...
    don't look down
    don't even think in that direction
    see that creation is as creation does
    as sure as gravity
    while having the whole of creation
    at your finger tips
    let them soft lips sing a song
    of horizons
    where sunrises are the hook
    harmonies come in dusk
    flavors and hues
    and then savor the sound
    naw...
    don't look down
    enstead look around:)

    feelin' ya, poet!

    deep mental thoughts here ......
    tears will dry
    memories lost
    the screams will fade
    the cliff become small
    hope set in by the faith
    of all action made
    unto u as skrybe say
    don't look down but around u

    dis was deep i felt it as i played it in my mind
