    What audacity
    To sit up here and stare back at me
    Daring to challenge my mentality
    Sometimes you can fool me, make me think I’m stuck
    But feeling your precesne some how makes me emerge out of the poetic rut I thought I was in
    Claimed I was in
    Cause for some reason it scared me to visually challenge your imagination into believing my reality
    So I just didn’t
    I said nothing
    Let you believe you are all you think you are
    I let you claim your fame
    While spitting life’s bitter reality
    Without saying your name
    Oh but when I say who you know **** well it’s you
    I put the blame on not one in particular
    Pointing fingers is not on my poetic curriculum
    But as hard as you prayed me not to pen this piece
    Is just how bad my pen wanted to release this realism
    I don’t know you specifics
    And I don’t know you
    But today you will claim your **** up
    And I’ll even claim mine
    As much as I want to physically end this scribe I can’t
    Because my realistic mental state is compelling me to finish this rant
    Even though this is a bunch of nothing
    Each line means something to you because you know the brutal consistencies of your circumstance
    And how the mere thought of it makes you want to almost piss in your pants and I won’t even claim that I know how you feel
    How the sight of the sun makes you want to kill yourself
    Or how the thought of what they did makes you want to kill someone else
    I wouldn’t tell you even if I did
    Cause like you I’m trying to stay blind and well hid from my situation causing me stressful perspiration
    Because I want to confront another person before I dare confront my reflection
    See cause my situation is that one exception, where I don’t have to visualize my wrong
    I’m the strong one not the wrong one
    The right one who was wronged by that ***** and now because of them I can’t get past some other **** and I just can’t accept this
    And you can’t and won’t accept that all the I’s in this piece aren’t the eyes you stare into when you look at me
    Some of those eyes are ones you carry on your hearts realistic mentality

    "Because I want to confront another person before I dare confront my reflection"

    WOW!! This peice was off the hook and this line I pulled from your peice is very powerful. I don't know what created this flow but it was very heated. Peace and much love
