    this is actually an old peice i wrote in '98 collaged with some new work....
    i hope yall could feel me on this.....


    ..i feel so suicidal
    but yet,i alwayz knew denial
    i will shoot to aspire
    in this lifetime of mine,
    im tryin to shoot higher....higher...
    but im ankle locked in the ground,flooded.....
    hearin' terrifyin sounds of something hellbound,im runnin'...
    runnin.....
    my life is like a chase its me escapin' death
    but i dont like life,i like testin myself for 'delf,
    but im not ready yet...
    steady set ,on my mark,get set,GO....
    flow so original,....lyrical......Oh NO.....
    im stayin' backwashed,swimmin in my own sorrow
    waitin for tomorrow,
    but im TOO afraid to see tomorrow...
    but i will....even if i kill them demons,holdin me down...
    I want to uplift from this crowd,outgoin this now...
    smokin on this now,
    the lah got me straight...
    tha world is my horizon
    im headin to debate......

    this troubled soul,
    my goal,
    is to rise like yeast.....
    eat,drink,and be merry
    happy livin' in peace....

    thats not the least,
    the one i really loved had to leave me,
    mentally & physically
    why did she decieve me??!

    so now i can't move
    my mind cant do its work
    my heart's been squashed and hurt
    now my flesh is gettin' spit on like dirt....
    incarcerated,too late for me to turn back tha hands of time....
    i wish this land was mine,a decent man standin' in line....

    i Lurk......lost,but then it occured...

    i was born for a higher purpose,
    overturned the cost ,thats my word....
    my mic burns,
    as i rejoice in warmth and from what i learned...
    this man has been reborn,im glad my axis turned...
    i share wisdom with those who choose to absorb....
    no more fightin these demons,no more suicidal thoughts...
    i love my life,i made an appointment with God,adjoined....
    too blessed to be stressed,to annointed to be dissapointed...

    and im gone.......

    There are some experiences in life, like a lost love, that can make one think of just giving up. But yes, you're too blessed to be stressed, and once you realized that, you were on your way. Many can relate to this poet, flow on.

    we vent into a slumber
    on suicidal notions til
    it really occured to us
    the message our mission
    of life and how we tamed
    in deep denial that inspires
    us to rise and pass the myth
    of self destruct to a new day

    this was phat and well felt as my mind drift

    As much as I loved this work, it pained me to know it was autobiographical. Free yourself to see yourself and in time you will truly be yourself...peace
