I know life is fast but in bad situations things can move slow,
middle finger up to negative people who won’t grow.
I’m gone live forever like dead presidents,
so if u not talking dollars u ain’t making cents,
I understand real life issues makes us use tissues
and being put into certain positions hurt like tight shoes,
I love red but I rather give u the blues,
a carpenter can’t build a house without the proper tools.
can’t let material matters,
stop u from focusing on things that really matters,
people scatter when their dreams seems broken &shattered,
so I let negative things go like a weak bladder.
I was moving fast chasing the cash,
I was once behind the flash when the gun blast,
many times I thought about life and laugh,
not knowing I chose my own path.
because of my self destruction I never got the chance to say my final good bye and wiped the tears from my children eyes.
no more moving at a fast paste just taking my time,
did to many crimes and can’t relax my mind.
it’s feel like I’m standing in the mist of a tropical storm,
sad ass hell,
some days I wish I wasn’t even born,
I lost more than I gain so I transformed,
they tell me not to be alarmed,
when every move I make I got to be armed.
self medicated so my next move have to be premeditated,
I took slams,
me and life went head to head like two raging rams,
when I fail it seemed the entire world was filled with laughter,
until I turn the page of my life and wrote the next chapter.
I’m to blessed for stress so don’t low a case my Gee,
I’m taking all my energy and putting it back inside of me..
low self-esteem is the making of a fiend,
but understand a price is next to nothing compared to one man dream..
your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same..
peace to the true and living..
