    "Last Words"

    Everyone wants that everything
    from nothing to more than something
    from the hours on the clock
    to the things you think and think not
    when you tell folks they can't have
    they huff n puff and walk away mad
    like its my fault to want to breathe my freedom a bit
    before I give it up
    for those who worship greed
    and want to complain about not making time
    and not heading to demands
    like the hour's sands can be separated grain for grain
    so hard to be a good friend yet so easy to be a pain
    in my ***
    pain in my neck back and calves
    where are the days when a person don't want **** from me
    but a conversation where nothing is hidden
    then I'd be wrong to give up and just be cold
    not care about where in life you go
    don't you know how ******* hard it is to live
    let alone be consumed by another's "goings ons"
    the ******* audacity for you to assume
    that your well being wasn't a concern
    or that I did not think about if you ate today
    or if things went your way
    I should just walk the **** away
    like you made it seem
    but then I'd be just like you
    and that's a crime I don't want
    demons by which I don't want to be haunted by
    the tears out the wells of your eyes
    because you feel I don't care when I do
    but your mind is screwed by bad math and punks from your past
    and you want me to swallow what I can't taste
    but you know what? you left me
    so I end that case
    I can only wish you luck
    and I can only hope u do what's necessary to strive for better
    but the last indication that i'm alive will be this letter
    because the silence you left me in
    will be the same state of mind I will be wallowing
    my pride won't be swallowed or
    our past I don't want anything to show for
    you'll just be that lesson that got me into heaven

    and the rest is locked in my heart

    a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions...
    brewing inside this flow
    ...*the lesson that got me into heaven*
    more of us should think of our trials in this manner...
    even the struggles we encounter with our loved ones
    make us better...make us stronger...make us more conscious
    and teach us..."to love ourselves...before anyone else*
    this is where...real peace begins

    Feeling this...

    "Last words" were determined and prideful even though the experience was painful. You flows tend to plow in deep brotha.
