Her touch replaced the feeling of that needle society would put in me to trigger the monster inside
Her presence healed my mind to revision those dreams trapped inside those broken liquor bottles side effected with over crowded thoughts
The care in her eyes with the sound of the pain-free voice she wished for me innovated a cold clouded soul to rose
For she is my โ€œrose in the concreteโ€ amongst these ghetto streets
As the purity in her melodies within her heart sings to capture my freedom even the devil could not resist
such a beautiful sound her conscience displays faints out the cage surrounding me
& seals off my last piece of rage with a kiss
For she said โ€œI wanna b your peace of min...

I flew to Africa and my heritage struck

I witnessed my heritage and my pride came out

I over did my pride and America showed

discrimination

I tasted discrimination and slavery was born

I cried outs slavery through whips and chains;

and history was made

I met history and a family was created

I honored my family and a month we received

I opened that month and showed a shadow of a little negro

girl

I took that little girl and the word "beautiful" existed

I redefined "beautiful" and white hands grabbing her appeared

I rebirth this image and equality was earned

I rethought that last line and questions grew concern

I took those questions and society tears flowed

I saved each tear an...

Born in a devil bound neighborhood where the poor call it "Home" & the rich "The Ghetto"

Where my skin tone can be seen as "Beauty" pure as an art form of God creation

while to other's may conceive only a "Criminal" a coin to the less fortunate

Where cops are beloved, few battles but no wars

while the news only portray the violence for their entertainment

Call this "KNOWLEDGE S.L.A.N.G"

Living in a world where feeling's are overrated

When hearts love with their sexual desires, forfeiting the simulations of their emotions

& teaching of the generations behind us "Lust" is the new way

causing the trust issues we suffer but won't change...

the heartaches we hate but praise to adjust to ...

I heard her heart knocking on my chest waiting for an embrace of my fears

While her tears waited to be dry with a simple kiss from a life I couldn't give

For we both were damaged eyes from a toxic generation

where our heartbeats were beating for love with a slight hesitation

As I hear her mind moaning for my soul, wishing to make love to my inner demons

Only wishing to make sweet love back to her insecurities

For our sexual attractions is no more then a mental obsession

as we make ghetto music in a crooked world

While the Devil is our generation president all nightmares no dreams

she still managed to put God as my inner faith

The beauty of her persistence shall be a soul moti...

She like a breathe of fresh air my lungs can only worship in this toxic world
Her eyes brings me heaven on earth for my mind gave that image up murders ago
For I am not saint but yet she been my guardian angel for 4 years now
My sky is no longer dark for the sun isn't afraid to shine anymore
while my nightmares turned into sweet dreams while her presence lay beside me at night
there is no need for my soul to wish anymore amongst the stars for my wish will soon bare a ring from my heart on her hands
I am blessed
I shall never take a day of her for granted for her smile is once in a lifetime
My queen shall never cry unless there visiting from an emotion called joy
As those mystical clouds tha...

So Tell Me What's Next?....

She yelled thousands of time to da world but yet never been heard
Wrote letters from her heart through prayers n Jesus never even seen a word
Her mind filled with dreams with her a soul so drained
She been publicly killed by society & yet no killer still framed
She lives her life by her poetry still yet no phrase
to capture all that innocence god wasnโ€™t ready to see that phase
so da devil sits on her shoulder as her inner beauty fades
faith lingering by her tears as they drip away from her face
he whispers in her ear โ€œwhy itโ€™s so hard for you to believe in me
You praying to them angels while they just drunk off Hennessy
I๏ธ been on yuh shoulder never left your side
he abandoned me too ima...

My demons seek an angels love in a toxic world
where it's innocence was taken when my dreams dried up from imagination
As those role models I once knew were broken from the secrets a ring cannot shield
While my angels shifted into grey clouds & blurry visions
for my heart is still missing pieces that was never developed
My mind is scarred as my thoughts can barley form focus
Not even if a little liquor could help me miss her
I ain't perfect for my demons are demons & yet this angels love still cries for mines
As if it see good in me the world blinded so many years ago

Kiss her through her dreams
As she only wishes to be apart of your imagination
For her heart is the missing piece to bring those long lost images back home
To a place called love

If the world stopped would you finally be able to breathe
If your eyes sunk deep into your soul would finally be able to see
& find the truth in someone inner beauty
Or maybe if your angels begin to drink the liquor out your veins
would your dreams be revived from those nightmares built off pain
could you take the risks of turning those angels into demons
providing your trust in love hoping itโ€™ll conquer over hateful regions
for we live in a world where are fears only grin
I wonder would those who live outside these ghetto walls be more fearful of a bullet or the color of my skin
โ€œDear lordโ€ for a prayer is the only none judgmental place I can begin
Can you hear me?
Can you finally ...

I loved through millions of broken pieces
As I lived through a dream that was suffocating from my nightmares
Even the stars sleeping in the night sky I threw wishes upon
once believing those wishes would reach..could reach behind the ghetto reality I live in
I am damaged still moving on hope when even my angels lost hope in me
Drinking Hennessy my heaven is not looking for its own safe haven
So Iโ€™m left here praying to whomever will listen for my Lord grows tired too
