    VESTED INTEREST

    DON'T GO TOO FAR
    FOR WHERE WILL THAT LEAVE ME
    DON'T YOU KNOW I HAVE NO LIFE
    UNLESS YOU LIVE
    I HAVE NO BREATH
    UNLESS YOU BREATHE
    I HAVE NO EXISTENCE
    UNLESSYOU EXIST

    DON'T DREAM TOO MUCH
    FOR WHERE WILL THAT LEAVE ME
    DON'T YOU KNOW I HAVE NO DREAMS
    UNLESS THEY ARE YOURS
    I HAVE NO GOALS
    UNLESS THEY ARE YOURS
    I HAVE NO HOPES
    UNLESS THEY ARE YOURS
    I HAVE NO IDEAS UNLESS THEY ARE YOURS

    DON'T STEP TO NEW THINGS
    FOR WHERE WILL THAT LEAVE ME
    DON'T YOU KNOW I HAVE NO VISION
    UNLESS I STEAL YOURS
    I HAVE NO PATHS TO WALK
    UNLESS I WALK IN YOURS
    I HAVE NO DIRECTION
    UNLESS I AM WALKING IN YOUR STEPS
    I HAVE NO SOLUTIONS
    UNLESS THEY ARE YOURS

    DON’T REACH YOUR DESTINY
    FOR WHERE WILL THAT LEAVE ME
    LOSS IN THE ABYSS OF NOTHINGNESS
    CAUGHT IN A CLOUD OF UNCERTAINTY
    CAUGHT IN THE CROSS WINDS OF CONFUSION
    ALL BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE THE EYE TO SEE
    THE NEW WAY, THE LATTER DAY PROPHESY

    Yes.

    I feel u thouroughly.
    I believe we walk this life
    for a greater purpose
    that is not in man
    nor woman, it is up
    to us seek and find
    that greater purpose
    inside.
    Thanks fo da read.
    Peace.
    :)

    Thanks for the reply

    it is funny how poets see things in different ways. This poem was for someone who I felt was trying to steal my life and identity. She had no life of her own so she stole mine. I was tyring to let her know that I had had enough of her. For her to find her way. But I can see how you saw this also.

    I just started a new board check it out.
