    Scriptures of My Veins

    I am engraving these scriptures to my veins.
    The words of "our father who art in heaven holy is thy name."
    Maintain this celestial mentality.
    Hold these verses to be true.
    I write proverbs on my baby blue horizon lines
    building my own "word" all brand new.
    Half wit detained underneath this rock of fertility,
    Wonder when my candle must melt, must blow out.
    These four walls surround me, shape my mind
    I am locked in confusion, and my heart in knots, trying to pull my way out.
    I am flowing subliminally into some infinite realm.
    Choking on sand and dirt and grime.
    My knowledge sure lessens percents day by day.
    I have demolished all hope within me, thrown away my contagious smile.
    Desolate in isolation
    The crickets they no longer are screeching,
    The crickets they've run into secret meeting.
    Isolation loneliness in my Nubian poetic era,
    I read a great deal and no knowledge comes to mind why I stop strolling and the world is still rolling.
    Bloodthirsty heathens inhabit the lands where my celestial being once resided.
    Under extreme pressure I break vows made unto my first heart, I wish I could erase, mistakes I hold in my left-hand nature's glue, this disgrace, this shame.
    Lied and cheated and killed.
    Constantly messing up,
    Making goals never committed for.
    My physical state sits basically not giving a ****.
    These swears slip as lubrication through my freely expressive tongue.
    Driving over "Peace River" my mind and heart fight private battles over what should be righteous or wrong for me.
    The bull**** I say all day slowly diminishing the logical reason I've created overtime.
    Letting selfish ****** get to my mind controlling my ability to perceive, my ability to believe ability to have reasoning.
    Every intersection in my vein has nearly been the cause of death and supposes "accidents."
    God has certainly been standing there but she has constantly made lame mistakes, his help can only go so far.

    Nice flow LyricalOasis
    As the flow goes thru your veins, and the four walls holding you in spread apart stay true to yourself, or be pulled apart.


    Rushing thoughts go through my mind, of where you are. I taste the isolation. The lack of expression that consumes me. Exert my will. But over whom. With whom will I take the lasting moments I need. Sometimes I find myself among a crowd. But i'm still feeling alone. Trapped inside those four walls. Looking out the windows of my soul. My eyes water, blurring the vision of truth. Still I know it will all be OK.
