Born And Raised


born and raised to be a man told to
stand up and love myself be true to
myself and by true to others
shown that a man is worth how he
is to himself such as my gold is worth my
so when im ready to take off and fly
by not drive by but be the man that
will get going and see through the
world so i was born and raised a man

born a boy told to grow up and be seen
not be dumb and thuggish educate my mind
told to grow with the smarts of life and show
what i need to show get.

born a male that comes from a different country
stand up differently from the rest so i was born
and raised differently
born to a land where they proud of you where
they show you off and let you get off with a
little smile and with a great happyness

Black Light

life is at times bleak the black that covers
us to a beyond dreams.
at times we seek and gain the black wool
of the sheep as the light of today looms far

Lost Confused

Lost confused and time
Change, one thing all man fears,
so we look upon and ask why.
Seeing the leaves fall off.

Moments And Movements

life is but moment take it serious you loose
that motion why wait for seriousness when
you get on with life and be innocent check
not what you see but what you belief hear


I was told that I would never be far
and told I shouldn’t aspire to be the
star so I stood hard and didn’t
become the internal fool,

Who Am I

Whips firing slashing through the air
heat rise hitting the speed of sound.
Slow mo speaking and talking like
you on the screen

Clickin And Clocking

time ticking click clock kicking slow moving
today is another day people looking through
the false intent of wondering what you are
i am here walking the pits of the world
