    To me, love is the perfect harmony of two souls
    whose sole purpose, is pleasing the other:
    To me, a child should be severely punished
    if he/she ever... disrespects his/her mother.

    To me, the world is spinning backwards
    sliding towards something unexpected:
    stuck on the crowded, one-way highway
    of life, because people don’t slow down and
    they miss their exit.

    To me, when you become possessed by material things
    clothes, jewelry, houses, and cars:
    you seem to lose your sense of character
    and not have a clear understanding
    of who you are.

    To me, the whole entertainment industry
    has become corrupt and tainted:
    rappers and actors seem to be
    living the life of their dreams, but to me....
    the picture appears to be painted.

    To me, people are chasing after illusions
    and not true happiness of soul:
    the quest to obtain that which makes me truly happy
    and feel complete, has become
    my entire life’s goal

    To me, helping someone else feels better
    than me getting all I want or need:
    I want to walk the fine line between
    having enough, and not being consumed
    by envy and greed.

    To me, nothing in life really makes sense...
    Because I’m such a good, attractive man:
    I don’t know if the world has run short or what..
    but yet, here I remain with no good...Wo-man!!
