    I once wanted to rise
    Like sun
    And dry dewdrops
    And drop opposition
    But we still wishing
    Rising like a pharaoh
    From the tomb
    And erase the mysteries of man’s pain
    Hieroglyphics tell me
    The symbolism behind a homeless theory
    We dress a dog, but not a tattered man
    Yall don’t hear me

    Rising like grits
    Smelling fresh air
    Free air when brothas get out da pen
    Maybe if we rose sooner, he pick up a pen
    And pimp that, instead of the block
    They don’t see me, just skip over me and the rocks

    Who cares,
    Oprah used to be bout freedom
    Now she bout celebs
    Oh what a tangled web

    Woven, so many words unspoken
    Hoping the links of slavery remain unbroken
    A
    Life still
    Detached, so much potential unmatched
    By results of figures
    And statistics
    That tell me
    We still *******

    And rain falls, and rises back to sky
    Could I condensate cries
    And i
    Am not i
    IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
    If u put so many I’s
    Confusion occurs

    I’m thru with this skrybe
    Holla at me in da line

    This was a serious vibe, so many issues to contemplate and wonder why. Really liked this flow.
