    The Ultimate Test

    I find myself trapped by my thoughts
    And wondering why?
    Why my life is in shambles?
    See, I find myself sitting in front of this window
    with bars in front of me
    And I’m missing my normality
    And I ask myself, why?

    Why did I do what I did?
    While doing all that
    The demons inside of me,
    Are laughing at me,
    Taunting me,
    And know I am stuck

    Stuck in a life
    Were I let bull**** get the best of me
    A life that messed up my freedom
    Man, they ain’t never lied
    When they said
    That Crack is a mother ******.


    Now it’s 5 years 9 months and 3 days later
    2 days before my release date
    And I made peace with
    My inner demons
    And G-d has come for my protection
    And the demons no longer are laughing
    Now they are crying

    See, if I have learned one thing
    I’ve learned that Crack is a beast
    A beast that will have you
    Stealing, dealing, lying, and sooner or later dying

    Another day has passed
    And I promised myself
    That no longer will I be seduced
    By my inner demons
    I have gained my strength
    And through prayer and the heavens above
    I will regain the possibility
    Of becoming a righteous man

    The day has come
    And now my prison cell
    Is being unlock
    And as I walked though the halls
    I hear voices telling me
    Mother ****** you will be back
    But they are wrong.

    And as I reach the gates of freedom
    I come to a realization
    That no matter what
    That I am still not free
    See, I come to understand
    That I still have to pass
    The ultimate test
    Living life rightously

    So many different kinds of demons can latch onto a life and hold it prisoner. But with God on our side, we can resist. A tale known by far too many, flow on poet.

    *note on the dl* ...The word is powerful, mightier than the sword.
    Ignore the demons...and they will go away, if you don't intertain it, it'll find another resting place. What comes out of our mouth...will manifest.
    This piece is awesome poet, keep speaking the positive out, and only that...will come back. Your spirit is yours...and that's a great thing.
    I'm reading you poet, I'm listening.

    I get high on verbal stigmatizations,
    Conscious thoughts and analytical situations.
    I fin for mental conceptions
    Filled with words full of
    Vital information
    Phrases that can somehow change
    A dying nation

    Yet we still contemplate over
    Vigorous thoughts of emptiness
    That some how control
    Our mental ways of thought
    Bull-**** causes with bull-**** effects.
    Yet, I wonder, and wonder, and wonder
    Why must we
    Endure this pain each day
    The pain of knowing
    That no matter what
    That our way of thinking
    Is killing our being.
    Political change and capital gain
    Filled with racial strain
    A hypocrisy know as democracy

    Yet, I still get high on verbal stigmatizations,
    Conscious thoughts and analytical situation
    And fining for mental conceptions
    Filled with words of vital information
    Searching for phrases that can some how
    Change our dying nation.

    Instead of up lifting
    We spend our time dismissing
    Dismissing the thought of humanity
    We rather talk down on each other
    And clown each other
    Instead of praising each other
    And thanking each other
    Has the thought of righteousness
    Leave us for a hierocracy
    Leaving us with fake *** liars
    And forgetting the high
    The high of a righteous life
    Yet I still plead, and I plead, and I plead
    Cause I want to believe

    That we still get high on verbal stigmatizations,
    Conscious thoughts and analytical situation
    And fining for mental conceptions
    Filled with words of vital information
    Searching for phrases that can some how
    Change our dying nation.

    I can only write what I feel and know. Although I never been incarserated I could imagen how it might be. To many of our brothers are getting locked up everyday yet we as a society do nothing about it. I just want to touch those who actually experience this and hope that they know that to keep their heads up cause God does love them.

    Peace all
