FAILURE





FAILURE





"Life can only make so much happen, the rest is up to you"

 

All my life all I needed was a chance
Never did life think twice about me.

- I've aged broke, bare handed broke -

All I needed was one chance alone
One chance, to either succeed or choke.

BULLSH*T






BULLSH*T 




"Every self-made woman knows when a man is f&cking around" 


Keep me on my toes
Secretly creep, hide.

Call me her name 
Not to, you have tried.

- Bullsh*t me -

You stain me dumb
Just so f&cking Naive.

I watch you daily
Bullsh*tting me.

As if I f&cking believe,
Wait till you see me leave.

I F&CKING CARED






I F&CKING CARED




"B&tch, I was the one who placed that smile on your face"


Go ahead and trash my heart
Then again, its been f&cked before.

You wouldn't be the first 
Nor do I expect you to be the last.

- F&CK IT -

Here, take it, make it yours to break 
Don't worry, I really no longer care.

Just remember one thing, I f&cking 
Cared for you when no one gave a f&ck.

NONCHALANT 





"Don't you dare force me to care for something I care nothing about"


I'm just so f&cking amazed
How they say that I've crazed.

Lacking stability and patience
F&ck you, and your presence.

Who are you that I have to care
All you get is an unwanted stare.

- I hold no trick up my sleeve -

I'm not sorry & not interested in you
I only have so much f&ck to give.

TO: BEING YOUNG






TO: BEING YOUNG




"My childhood blames me for my life problems. But I had to grow up"


Only yesterday did we have our happy days
Now we are grown & heading our separate ways.

I wish we could share a moment thats too old
Labeling us immature, but who really cares? 

All we do is stress over money and living lavishly
Forgetting to have fun before we stop breathing.

I just want to run backwards once more, just once
I would do it all over again, repeating it all. Twice.

PICTURE ME






PICTURE ME




"People always seem to be fooled by our make believe happiness"


Picture me away from broken
In happy stories spoken.

Full of laughter in my lungs
Surrounded by supportive hugs.

- Wait, adjust your lens -

Away from the mistakes I make
Thats the picture you should take.

Develop my film in shallow water
Right now, I can't sink any lower.

FALLING FORM GRACE





FALLING FORM GRACE

  


"I'm falling from angry heavenly clouds"


Catch me, place me
Right in your arms.

Im falling from grace,
Heaven has ran out of space.

I give you my load to take
and perhaps my heart to break.

"Just as long as you promise to catch me"

LEAVING ME





LEAVING ME




"I hope you never come back into my life again and again"


Don't worry, you will miss me
And you will be at your lowest.

Run me away, push me gone
You will miss me deep in your chest.

I will take from you nothing at all
When you crash, your love will stall.

Falling into a deep depression 
You will realize my love's devotion.

YOU LOST ME






YOU LOST ME




"I first discovered forever when I watched it end, alone"


I will shower you in silver and gold
Or whatever much for, our love was sold.

I plead you, I'm asking you to stay 
There is no need for us to part so far away.

Please baby, please stay.

I will seek help, I swear I will
Even if I have to go out of my way and kill.

Just let me hold you once more
And you will feel that my heart is sore.

Please baby, please don't head towards the door.

I take full responsibility, blame me 
I just need one more chance and you will finally see,

"That we were meant to be"

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY






THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY





"At times we lose ourselves even when we need one another the most in love"


Just like you, 
I too never meant my last goodbye.

But yet 
We parted onto separate sides.

Never did we
Look back once that broken night.

I guess 
We just had enough of it all.

We slowly parted
Awaiting for a single name's call.

We remained silent
Our avaricious souls yearning for silence.

Our broken hearts parting even further
We carried opposite halves in our distance.

I wished you back that very night
Alone was all I had from you and it's fright.

I blame you, I blame me 
I blame us both for the lack of everything. 

Perhaps it was meant to be
But we must both agree that slowly we're dying.

HER & I

"Scraping my knees with great pleasure, I've fallen for her"


I'm amazed,
Speechless at best. 

The way she cares
She chooses me first.

I hold her mine
While she rests on my chest.

Excuse me tarnished.

Long silky black haired
With full lips, bold in red.

I walked all over men 
And complain they never dared.

The sun perfectly kissed my skin
Complementing my dress.

"Hugging my waste so thin"

I broke many hearts by the millions
There was no such thing a s special him.

It was all about me.

"I wish to hold you mine even when you are at your worst"


The day I placed you in my arms
The world around me calmed. 

Your face and mine alike
We both shared a similar smile.

I know that with time you will grow
I just hope that away, you will never go.

- Remember me always -

Wishing to be needed even when 
You are all grown, again & again

Keep me as best of friends
As I keep up with your best of trends.

"I dream with sense, but far away from common"

Taking a last breath

Existing away form actual

I live in dreams distant from normal.

BLASPHEMY





BLASPHEMY




"At the end, those that claim 'they will' might not even make it to heaven"


We break bread in church 
Forgiving sinful hearts of hurt.

The new falls behind from front
Religiously winning the race first.

Gossip cups overflowing wet
Saturated two faced secrets un-kept.

Preachers of words changed
Publicly crucified saints outraged.

Blessed offers to heavens tall
Hoped showers of blessings and love.

I pray for my salvation from the bottom
With desires of eternal living up above.

AFRICAN WAR CHILD





AFRICAN WAR CHILD




"I was raised away from peace on war filled fields"


Heavenly clouds traveling across tormented skies
They leak staining us clean every time God cries.

Abused souls to tormented minds to a frustrating greed, 
transforming hearts into stones that bleed.

Cursed by the concubine relation to the world
Drenched red by stones they abuse us far away from our needs.

The naked truth is displayed through war torn fabrics of peace
Two faced political powers look away from us all, war child seeds.

This is a serious matter to me, I have been through a civil war and that moment in my life showed me the worst of Africa as we all hid in one room while RPG rockets whistled through the nightly skies. War is no stable ground, especially when tormenting innocent souls. I hope to aware everyone of everything that is still going on in present day Africa. God bless my brothers and sisters the world has forgotten.

LATE FOR LOVE





LATE FOR LOVE




"Love takes time, and timing is the worst of my problems"


I will break time's hand
That lacks timing for me.

- Pushing me late to love - 

Dragging my chances slow
From where I desire to be. 

I will break the very hand
Pushing me to sit and wait.

Love rushes past me, away 
From where I should stand.

TRACES OF HATE





TRACES OF HATE




"Hate, the reason why death still resembles world peace"


Feeling the Devil's touch 
Hate takes all that's much. 

Passed through finger tips
Cultural brute touches. 

Hands upon innocent seeds
Comforted by hate full couches.

Fathers encouraging their their sons
Mothers preaching to their daughters.

Innocent souls tainted dark
Hate full spirits tormented from the start.

GETTING NOWHERE





GETTING NOWHERE




"As much as I run towards away, nowhere remains my destination"


Sometimes I just run 
I race towards away from time.

Living photographic moments
From frame to frame.

I place my best foot ahead
With my fastest speed in gear.

Broken slow motions apart
I plan on departing away from rear.
