    I fight alone
    against my thoughts
    while wrestling nightmares
    and dreams
    i sift through my shattered emotions
    trying to get to God's feet

    i stare at 4 lonely walls
    that haunt me with this empty feeling
    that God don't answer my prayers
    cause they don't get passed the ceiling
    if they make it to heaven
    why won't he send me a blessing
    instead he punishes me
    abundantly
    for not learning lessons
    that he was trying to teach

    my grandmama cried and preached
    but I'm hard headed
    and embedded
    in my love for the streets
    I feed off the concrete
    my appetite is dustruction
    call me a stone cold sinner
    cause baby i'm out here hustlin'

    i came from nothing
    so I'm humble
    I've been humilated for years
    I was baptized in the fire
    and christened by my mama's tears

    so aint nothing you can tell me
    the story has been told
    and I don't need advice
    or sympathy
    just pray
    for
    my
    soul

    I'm already praying for your soul
    If you'd pemit me to be so bold
    For I understand the street's hold
    When it's call outweighs your control
    Resisitng for a season but in the end you fold
    For your life is truly my story being rehased & retold
    The remenants of my past life are just now getting cold
    For this new lifestyle has not yet had time to grow old
    And I am not truly sure that I am completly sold
    For this programming has yet to reset my mold
    For the streets run deep down in my inner soul

    Join us in prayer dear poet, I know it seems as though prayers go unanswered, but sometimes just when you give up the blessing occurs. The pain is surely felt within your words. Peace.

    This flow is real Nitty

    Here is metaphor to me that means. When you get into your own head. Listen to your heart beat above the frey. Silence is very loud!
    God speaks in a friends concerns, and family worries
    Trust in what he has already spoken

    In this part of your flow
    You touched on what you know
    God will always answer
    Speaking from faith and everyday experience

    i stare at 4 lonely walls
    that haunt me with this empty feeling
    that God don't answer my prayers
    cause they don't get passed the ceiling
    if they make it to heaven
    why won't he send me a blessing
    instead he punishes me
    abundantly
    for not learning lessons
    that he was trying to teach


    Truth you hold in your heart.
    " my grandmama cried and preached "

    My prayers are for you as a member and poet associate

    This flow is deep and from deep within
    Keep flowing

    I would love to lift you up in prayer. Not becouse you need help (nessesarily) but becouse you deserve the love that one gets when he is prayed for.
