    this is a verse i recorded to a song....started off as a poem,but u know how that goes...i couldnt resist....the song is in the Web links/business/technology forum...if u can ,please peep and leave some feedback..thank u!






    i sweat blood...starin off into the horizon of a dead sun...
    when stress come,i murder thoughts backwards like redrum...
    2 weeks deep in this slumber ,**** ,im losing sleep...
    sleeps precious,'specially when you're used to the zzzzz's...
    i used to be,real nonchalant ,now im a tickin' bomb...
    Lurk talks with tha intent on spittin' psalms of livin' Gods....
    but in this day in age no one wants to hear that ****...
    people dismiss beliefs quick till they start to fear in ****...
    im in the streets day and night,homie,put ya ear to it...
    and hear the screams of lonely children,homeless women,reared in it...
    i bask my daughter in Lifes materials,like brand name clothes....
    big screen t.v., she chills in the morning watchin Saturdays shows....
    she lives the life i only dreamed of ,but thats cause i give whut i never had....
    i had a drunken dad that will beat me till i severed hands....
    livin in tha projects,brick cities filled with the heartless....
    a kid got slain in front of me at 6 and i been scarred since....
    imagine seein that ,at such a young age....
    i guess thats why i started smokin blunts 5 yrs later lacin it with dust and haze....
    those were some other days,but i've yet to part with my troubled wayz....
    stuck in a daze,im still searchin for my way out this f...uckin maze.....
    im tired,and sick of this......
    fightin'....liquored up ,wired and twistin' fists...
    my babygirl gotta be sheilded,but know whuts real,-i admire her innocence
    i dont know where im goin,but i know where im from....
    whut i hold close to my heart might just be a 'care' to some...
    and im done...........
