    Im in school now, i just wrote this like 15 minutes ago.
    It's just a flow, so i hope yall like it.

    Time is Old.



    Time itself has grown so old
    Too weak to make reality
    the things untold
    So what is left?
    Except the dream
    The fantasy that has yet to hit the streets?
    The truth that hasn't hit the ground
    Leaving ignorance here to "touch the town"
    And Bliss
    What is it but a bunch of lies
    To shadow the fear and stifle the cries
    What's here to learn?
    What's here to grow?
    In a time like this,
    that's grown so old

    so old, my age is left confused
    The things I love, i have misused
    To who I am, I have yet to see
    The possibilities of freedom that is in me

    And to complain, does justice to no one
    And to the cause of the movement there is no sum
    For the people who have died because their souls were cold
    This is why our time is old

    So don’t be surprised when time passes away
    And there will be neither minute or day
    To fix the mistakes we all have done
    And where would be the dream?
    There would be none.

    ofcourse, i could never forget my fam, much less believe it, but i always have to spread back the love. It's all i enjoy to read the poetry of the fam, and take in whatever their words give out....

    thanks for noting it Rich!!!

    "this is why our time is old"

    That's deep, baby. One of the things I like about you and your work. Yes, this time is very old, and sometimes it makes me sad. Awesome drop.
