You will make it.
Just work hard.
It’s like a painting,
take it one day at a time.
Don’t worry about people hating.
One day you will be somebody,
somewhere riding in an Audi.
Change gon’ come, just
gotta stop looking for love.
I love me. Who gon’ love me like me?
Deep thoughts drifting in the sea.
Been abused and hurt,
thought it was something like a curse
But it made me stronger.
No Mom, this pain,
I can’t take it any longer.
Dad broke my heart before
a boy could.
Tryna be something better
than just a girl from the hood.
Pain looks like the day you lost all hope.
It tastes of blood and regret, the sorrow
that fills your heart. Pain is constant and
never fully goes away. Pain is the dark
cloud that follows you around, the
dark cloud that creeps up, even
on your good days. But at the end
of your suffering, there’s a light. And
that light shines as bright as a star.
Life looks magical because you’re alive.
It looks like busses all day long and
walking all night long.
No matter where you go,
the time stays ticking by.
It’s always loud, and always feels like
Wherever you go, it always smells.
From sewers to the bad people you flare your nose at.
You look at someone thinking they’re going somewhere in life,
but the next day you see them on Arlington, walking by.
Shadow, you are my puppet & I grew up with you!
You were & always are by my side.
Until the night time come & you wander off & do yo thang!
Then when I wake up, you’re always on time…
You’re just like my little brother…
Always trying to do what I did
You are a book with no words,
a bird with no wings, a song with no notes,
a car without wheels.
You are a roller coaster minus the thrills,
like a cold winter with no chills,
like the famous saying
ignorance is bliss.
This is my letter to hopelessness.
I am always lonely away from my family.
I wish I was far away from the danny.
I’ll be back home and won’t be left alone.
I’m far away from home listening to their songs.
I hope everything work out well.
I don’t want to be wrong,
I’m just living life and
I hope I’ll do right.
I refuse to fail and let myself drown.
I am bound to get up off the ground
when you knock me down.
Even if I’m in last place,
I’m still determined to win this race.
Because I learned not to walk by sight,
but to walk by faith.
My pain is deep, deeper than 6 feet. My eyes are
open but I cannot see. All this anger in my brain,
that I can’t even think. Your people will turn on you
quicker than you blink. I’ve been through hell with
gasoline draws. In my 14 years of living, I’ve seen half my
team fall, locked in a cell, trapped behind walls, all I got
in this world is my word and my balls.
You put a void on my body
like a brick wall
I can’t break down. You
rip the posters off the walls
in frustration. You
curse the words that are forbidden. You
run away when confronted. You
yell and scream when talked to. You
smother me like a blanket. You
don’t think, you just react. You
can’t see, you’re just blind. You
make me a person who can’t feel. You
fill the room with a weird silence. You
turn off the light so no one can see. You
are the enemy and when you
come around, people flee.
