    does everything have to be about sex,
    money--playa's--and jail?
    does the world have anything positive,
    that it can tell?
    cuz lately it's been hooked on,
    broken hearts and guilt.
    filling our minds,
    with the same old filth.
    cuz most ppl these days,
    find pleasure in hearing problems.
    and never find a way,
    to totally solve 'em.
    no new found topic,
    to take the world by storm.
    just new diseases sexually transmitted,
    being formed.
    what about the days when,
    it was better than yesterday.
    and it made you feel that the life you're living,
    wasn't just a stage play?
    do you dare speak of that,
    or do you think it wouldn't sell.
    bcuz folks minds are deeper than gutters,
    and way deeper than oilwells?
    that's the reason why things don't work out,
    cuz your too focused on the agony.
    rather than life's random,
    well loved satisfactory.
    you take life as it comes, (thanks for the words sistah INDIA AIRE)
    and make the best of it.
    and recieve criticism joyfully,
    never denying it.
    that's the way it's suppose to be,
    but again i say suppose.
    cuz the only person who was able to do it,
    already rose.
    and that's when earth went crazy,
    and got stuck in her sinful ways.
    leaning and depending on man,
    all the way up to their graves.
    cuz the world only talks about,
    what's for the moment.
    and once they've planted that seed,
    they've deeply sown it.
    so that nothing positive can come from,
    anything that the world gives.
    and it takes advantage of our gullableness,
    trying to make us forget we only get one shot to live.
    and one shot can take it away,
    from a mad playa--ex con--or neighbor next door.
    DOES THE WORLD HAVE ANYTHING TO OFFER,
    i think that,
    no-----i'll say no more.............







    you can't capture pain,
    just feel it

    Sometimes people just seem to be strung out on negativity, and other times it really is something painful that needs to be addressed. It's important to be able to tell the difference. I hear the message, flow on.
