Truth be told, I only saw what is real
Because my heart is an open sore that I do not expect to heal.
You see, a beaten and battered heart knows how pain feels
So it lacks all remorse when it comes time to kill.
Imagine 5-point stars tattooed upon my wrist
So that when I slit it down the middle, I will bleed out the six
And bleed out the omens that have haunted me in the past.
Then maybe, just maybe, I'll find peace at last.
I was born with a mind as strong as Malcolm X
Intertwined with the attitude of a blood set.
So, every time I touch this pen,
Consider it an instant blood fest.
That means death to everything in sight as I ask you, what's next?
I am vexed with the thought of letting Hip-Hop die
So these simple-rhyme rappers bring tears to my eyes
As I gaze into the mirror blind to my true self.
I am forever conflicted and lost on this search for true self
When the only thing that I want out of life is discovering true wealth
As I cleanse my soul and search for new health.
I see the pain in my mother's eyes as she witnesses the confliction
Of my mind at war with itself, when I just want to end it.
I am finished. I am done. There is no point in me even trying
For I could care less about death, and yet, I am miles from dying.
Pride cannot begin to explain why the heart of a lion
Beats blood throughout my veins as I sit back and sigh
Because trouble is stalking me like a horror movie.
I will love myself, and those that object can sue me.
My battles are repetitious increments of broken poetry.
So, I write about my life for all of these young boys to see.
In this world full of darkness, this pad is my flashlight
As I captivate minds like a car-crash sight.
All eyes on me as I step to the plate
And knock it out of the park. I hope that a window does not break.
For goodness sake, no one knows my rage
Of a thousand pit bulls confined within a single cage.
I have a fast-lane mentality, which is 120 on the gauge,
But silence fell upon all as I entered onto the stage.
I am the predator on the chase,
Forever exposing my own to keep your soul in place.
