    its hard to stand tall as the wind blows
    passions awry emotions sayin anything goes
    placing me in funk for the time being
    knowing that the time is now for some mental healing
    keep looking outside of myself though no ones there
    wanting to soar thru the clouds like an eagle
    instead i feel like a leaf being blown thru the air
    mind becoming idle, i know thats not good
    devil hangin round tryin to wreck shop
    and hav me messed up like then ni**az in da hood
    cant go that route gotta keep writin
    its hard when i cant get a grip and i dont feel like fightin
    cant even get the flow to go right
    this is more or less me babblin cuz i know this aint tyte
    just need some real people in my life
    to help ease the pain of a reality thats become so trife
    i wanna make moves cuz the time is now
    but everytime i step i stumble gotta find out how this keeps happenin to me when i know that i can be just what i wanna be
    just not sure what that is
    expressions escape my mind at a rate that has become greater than that of my fate
    some come across as crude or harsh while others dont even get across to the ones i need them to
    so what am i to do
    cant sit around lookin all sad and blue
    thats not the real me
    i gotta keep tryin to make somethin outta nuttin
    and show the world that love still lives and that
    my passion for love is undying
    so heres to love cuz i will keep on trying
    to open the worlds third eye so that loves people
    can do more than just get by......

    Cyper, missed u! This is a nice flow...feeling your words ...writing is difficult...writing with a message is even more difficult...

    Heard your struggle in this flow, loving your style even though u say ur only "babblin" but that's not what I hear.

    Hope to be seeing more of you!

    Dang Cyph..folks know when you've been gone. See there. I missed you too as a matter of fact. This was very insightful and very intriguing. It's a power struggle. Everything in the world is a Good vs Bad- SPIRITUAL BATTLE- everything!!!!!!!!!!! You've summed it up.
