    When I left *~-~*
    I was so stressed
    I just needed to get weeded
    I couldn't believe it---
    How I was transforming
    In front of my own eyes
    I was wondering what the hell happened to my life
    It's a trip how I could just see it
    Thinkin' I need to sanitize my soul
    Either that or find a dark hole
    Paint it white
    Lie to myself while I jump in screamin'
    Jesus Christ!
    or something...whatever...

    I'm having a bad day
    **** it, a bad day and a bad life
    My eyes look back at me sayin'
    **** you we ain't cryin' no more

    Mothafukkas will just have to hate me
    Everything I write will be a painting
    Of my likfe---or somebody else's
    Cause I know somebody is pissed right now
    Somebody somewhere is cryin' right now
    Hurtin' right now
    ****...

    What's wrong with my garden?
    The scriptures tell me I have the seeds
    For all kinds of plants But all I see is weeds
    On top of unfertile land
    No, that's a lie
    But ****...
    ONE rose
    In a football field of weeds?

    Don't let the sun catch you cryin'
    I keep telling myself
    It's like mental crack
    I keep buyin'
    From myself
    To stay high and
    Persavere in this life and
    Press on...

    You got some really nice lines in this piece, emotions are displayed strongly, very cool line "Don't let the sun catch you cryin' "
