    I go against the rules and you leave.
    I don't think you'll ever achieve.
    I'm 25 and we've been struggling with this same issue
    since I was in 6th grade.
    When will it change?

    I've already prepared myself for never and that hurts my heart.
    I think I have only one maker in the struggle and he goes and starts.
    The both of you gave your soul to the devil through the crack pipe.
    If you call on the TRUE GOD, I promise he'll make it alright.

    You sell your body, he sells his tools.
    I don't know why I still associate with you fools.
    I wish I could close my eyes and see behind this madness.
    I'm so tired of this pillow soaking sadness.

    My heart hurts.
    My pain is bitter.
    My mind wonders as my anger gets bigger.
    I want to pull the trigger.

    Pull the trigger on the mass deception and the tampered contraception.
    They're *****ing you with a small condom that's filled with holes.
    Now you're infected with the mind-boggling bullsh** that controls.

    How do you rid this nearly incuralbe disease.
    First, you need to stop giving the world a blow job and get the f*** up off your knees.
    Wipe ya face!

    Begin to erase
    Everything you've ever been taught.
    Everything you ever thought.
    Everything you do, you ought not.


    Inspired by my parents' drug problem and the emotions that take you there while raising THEIR children. It's rough, but I'm blessed. Oh, please excuse the vulgarness toward the end...i was taken there.

    GURL I feel you so deeply in this one it is unbearable and I wish I could just sit and read all your art back to back but for now I settle with just this and even if I just have this it is still a beautiful creation hope to hear more
