    As tears roll from my eyes..
    Man I tell you
    I am so tired of cryin
    This game of life is
    So interesting you see
    Things are not always what they appear to be
    One day I’m in love and next I’m
    In pain…what happen to make things change
    Yesterday I was overflowing with laugher,
    Now today I'm overcome with sadness….
    Today it hurts to love, but yesterday
    I thought I had been sent a gift from above

    And the beat goes on...
    One morning I woke up to 27 inches of snow (smh) ...4 days later, there were no trace of it anywhere.
    My point is...that's life as we see it...just try to make the best of whatever comes, gently blow the rest away.
    I can surely relate to this piece, thanks

    at some point
    we all feel pain..........
    just don't let it overflow you
    cause we can all maintain
    just stay focused on life
    what I just said is a metaphore
    too keep you focused on Christ
    not the physical being of course
    but I'm talking about the mind state
    it don't take an ounce of intelligence for me
    too understand that your mind's great
    your brother was sent here, too rid you of all of your misery
    take it or leave it, why wait?
    when two minds think alike
    you intensify the mind's rate
    pardon me for cosmically speakin
    but that's just the 3rd eye's take....................!

    one day that he's in
    one day he's out

    can you tell me what's that is about

    came and stole some honey
    pulled away thinking he played me for a dummy

    but you see i smelled a rat before he came
    i recognize this cat was all about game
    that's why he never had the chance for me to call his name

    glad he left before I
    before i too joined the river of cries
    cheer up baby gurl dont sigh

    for after all

    Tomorrow will bring a new day!!!!!!!!!!!!

    and its starts

    Today!!!
    flo on sis, flo on!!!!!!:love:
