    I mean I was thinking about it the other day
    How it's all so temporary

    All this
    We look forward to
    And work hard for

    One day will soon fade away
    Like the wind
    One day He'll take us raptured in the sky...

    I mean Jesus, ya know?
    The end of the world
    The battle between truth vs. lies

    I mean, I hope I'm not just trippin
    Cuz lately
    What I'm seeing isn't what I've been feeling

    On the outside
    Everything looks all perfect
    But I know, and you know

    That there's more to it
    Than all that fluff

    I mean, man, really

    Getting to know you more
    There's this wall
    Cuz I've got to take it slow
    There's so many things that I don't know

    Trying to understand
    And search the heart for what is real
    Who are you?
    Who am I?

    Shall we ever know?
    There's no hesitation
    This is me

    I care but for some reason
    The fire
    Has soon retired
    And I go through out my day
    Not being able to feel.

    It's surreal
    An unreality
    Of the human being
    Our existence
    Why we even try talking
    What does it all mean?

    And what's the point?
    To reality?
    You know?
    Seeing all there is to see in between

    Looks don't mean a thing
    Don't mean a thing
    Ya heard me, don't mean a thing...

    And for what hope
    Can I cling?

    It don't matter ya skin color
    After peeling back the layers
    Tru colors
    Spark

    Man, I mean fa real
    Revelation
    What does it all mean?

    Why are we really here?
    I was pondering this,
    This afternoon

    Not really getting that school girl feeling
    That excitement
    Meeting men,

    Right now
    I'm naked
    Not wanting
    Not withholding
    Just knowing

    What

    I

    Want

    ....

    Ya know...

    Forming a hypothesis
    For evaluation

    Not looking for a standing ovation

    Ya, know?

    Realizing this
    As I sat on the couch lounging today

    When you look into the depths
    What are we really existing here for?

    Ya know?

    Is it that the life of me, is all gone?
    I find it easier to express my individualistic sexuality
    My "right now" needs

    Cuz,

    What trully lies within
    Is so naked
    Unsensored
    Unapologeticly drawn from within

    I feel like nobody knows me

    If you were to ask me
    To pick a friend who knows me
    My mind would scatter
    To pin a certain one

    Don't let too many get too close to me
    Cuz I know that I will eventually have to let go
    And so far
    That has proven true
    Through all that have expressed there sincerity
    I know nothing is promised

    But what is promised
    Is that He will never leave me nor forsake me
    That He sticks closer than a brother

    Not feeling like giving up just,
    Realizing
    That just the slightest movement or embrace
    Could sure nuff jack me up
    Knowing that I'm holding on by His GRACE


    I don't know, hmm... it was just something that I've been thinking..

    we are little pieces of god

    you don't seem to know him

    but you are him

    that's where the lie always sits

    i appreciate the search for your soul

    it's a beautiful thing to watch

    you just keep being you and you will be fine

    you are such a great person now

    and that will continue

    just do right by you and do the right thing

    and never never never lie to yourself

    yes there is more to this life then the material items in front of you

    there is more to this life to those you understand what the more is

    peace

    i love this write DS

    keep searching keep asking questions

    what you yearn will come

    trust me

    i'm know what i'm talking about

    To have faith in a higher power, knowing wihtout seeing, such a complicated subject. Then when you throw in your thoughts about not everything being what it seems...well those are some deep thoughts, and I appreciate the way that you flowed with them.
