My mind’s racing, not complacent, I’m dream-chasing. I can't sleep, my thoughts are baking, they won't be quiet. I need silence, but the mind won't keep my fears private. I need out of it, trying to settle with some logic, But logic and empty pockets don’t match. I feel attached to the chains that keep… Continue reading Write to Sleep
I'm working on my future, because I'm tired of eating noodles. I could have been a shooter, but my mother kept me neutral. I could have dealt with dope, but the struggle gave me hope. Music let me cope with the troubles of being broke. Sitting in the dark praying to God for just a… Continue reading Long Way From Home
If the mountains weren’t too high, would I climb for you? If the valleys weren’t too low, would I slide for you? If the rivers weren’t too wide, would I swim for you?

Will someone share with me love's location? I can't find this woman anywhere. I've checked bars, tea shops, the internet, the library, hell, I even check Popeyes from time to time.

I need to grab a pen, just to clear out my mind. Devil tried to turn me out, I politely declined. Steady on a watch, time is not on my side. I swallow my pride, reaching for an ear to confide.
