so I take another step, and one more breath
closer to death. there's things going on in this
world that got me stressed. lately I find myself
searching my soul. looking for signs of life,
a warmth in the cold. i'm young and restless
and they want me to fold. i'm hard headed, I
ain't never did shit I was told. I get too mad too
fast over too much shit, but I put too much heart
into the words I spit. maybe i'm too proud,
maybe I scream too loud...but what goes in,
must come out. and i'm hurting inside. I can't
show it. obstructed by pride. I ain't being hard I
just don't know why. fuck tomorrow if I live or
I die. who comes first? you not before i. i'm still
a ways off from my lofty goals, so fuck those
who oppose and those who's acting like ho's. I
ain't got time for ya'll. focus my goals. I chose.
c'mon now, you just write ryhmes...i recite lifelines.
you're in it for the long haul...i'm in it for a lifetime.
let a brother try to come between me and mine.
i'll lie cheat and steal to keep feeding mine. that's
the deal and that's for real, by any means. am I
wrong because I want the finer things in life?
hell no. take this world by storm.
all I ever wanted was a taste of. all I ever wanted
was a piece of what I could not have.
