Ok, ladies and gentlemen. Been going thru a lot lately, my family and I actually. Then I see a Rap/Poem posting on facebook written by my cousin Mike Adelegon aka YB Dont Sleep that completely and precisely expresses how I have been feeling, and still am, this past week. Thanks Mike for sharing. Wishing this wasn’t another day in the life of me – no smiley face.
I create the outside World by what’s in my own mind
So in the same breath, I hope I change it in my lifetime
Without the hopes of me being a star
I just wanna run offense in olde age.. Brett Farve
I’d rather starve than to see my Fam Suffer,
I’d rather die than to be a bad Brother.
So I strive just to be a better Lover,
Though I battle wit my own shit while under covers…
I wanna cry cause my Great Uncle passed on,
Wept dry tears but it seems the fluids gone.
I feel like ROM, Random Access
Is the only reason I don’t express stress.
If I was Catholic then I would confess
to a priest, instead I just let the pen press.
Now I’m fighting back human feelings
Just to compress the pain n stress I’m feeling
I’m wiping my eyelids this is therapy.
Vulnerable, but happy no one’s next to me
Cause I wouldn’t wish this on no soul
Wonderin what life holds after our body goes…
