    You Must Love Me
    by Absolut

    Since my first day been loving you with the strength of all men..
    but hoped when I became one I wouldn’t treat you like them…
    Runnin’ away from the pain when the tears came I hid in the pen..
    Ducking the shame and the screams, the floor shakes and the headaches of cryin all night..
    listening to ya life fight the strife of being a young wife…and lookin at your son like he’s to become nothing of where he’s from..
    I want it all to be done..

    my young mind dreams of a gun to separate these two(halves) from one..
    Release the beast from my inner~section..
    'til death is the bless~in..
    Birth was the start of my lesson and life keeps on testin the essence of what’s vested in me..
    The stress of being layed to rest is my dream to be free..for lack of the love in our family which consists of you and me &….he
    The poison for the way we be..cryin & slowly dyin while sleepin with the enemy..

    The face changes time..the pace accelerates, these inscriptions generate the degration of my state and mind..
    Swallowed the pride like wine and followed the sign that you knew I couldn’t find ~~> you’re love for mine…

    You brought the birth to my rhyme, since age nine been staged in the pain’s shine…
    Watchin you play the game & your head and frame shamed by the rage of the insane..
    He tore apart our heart and membrane & fled when the cops came..
    I popped off in the rain and chased the mayne..
    Faced off with the name to erase him from the plane..
    the hate wasted in my vein as the years remain I sought to switch lanes..
    I fought but which depression came and we couldn’t sustain..
    Couldn’t remain in the same (home)…so I slept in the street..
    Tried to divide mine from my father’s feet but we were both deep..
    Up to our knees in our demons' heap.
    I recalled God to release me from each day that I peeped..
    prayed that I reap the love that I seeked..
    Went from the day to the week lookin for a way to eat,
    a place to stay while my love for you remained steep..even though you cursed me when I lost my front teeth..
    I only slept when I weeped so I knew death was the cousin of sleep..
    Counted a dozen of sheep but stood alone as a lamb..
    and if I die as a man it’s because of the wolves that I couldn’t defeat..
    Constantly chasing me, I’m feelin the heat..
    Pressure from my heartbeat measure what I keep (inside)..
    too much to be released so I conceived when the day was sweet (valentines)…
    Received a new version of me but payin a fee for my love to walk free (child support)…

    One day you will see..
    U & I as WE from the same tree as a separate entity..
    so follow your own destiny* and I’ll know that you must…

    Love me…


    *means if I die then don’t live like I did.

    This was so intense, you expressed so much here!!

    esp: "Birth was the start of my lesson and life keeps on testin the essence of what’s vested in me.. "

    It is what it is...
