Free verse

Trapped in a mind of sin,

Got me asking how Lord can I win,

How can I get past me,

And look for the way you want me to be,

I just don’t understand how,

And at times I swear it’s got me down,

But you tell me lift that head up,

Because you got me; you never get fed up,

But the devil out here trying to get me with the set-up,

And he just waiting like a voice box; cause you know I’m going to hiccup,

But you are there to help me hold my breath,

You tell me; you got me in the life after death,

But these burdens I swear they way down on my chest,

I need more strength to study this so I can pass the test,

I want that grade; I need that A,

I need your help; I need your Grace,

So here I am; Here I pray,

Hoping here in my heart; you will stay,

So forgive me for my past transgressions,

I know this seems like an obsession,

Or maybe it seems like just another session,

But in truth this is my faults my confession,

I am weak without you,

I will break without you,

My future is bleak without you,

I can’t get on that winning streak without you,

So here I am on the platform,

And this voice box is getting a little warm,

I’m ready to try and scream your name,

I don’t seek riches, glory in life, or even fame,

All I want is the truth of your words,

Anything else seems to much, too absurd,

So in a since I digress,

This is my passion of Christ address,

So take me below that water and let your blood run through my veins,

Because I want the best, I am tired of the same.

‘Just Stumblin Through Life’

Sittin here thinkin bout all the things around me,
What’s makin me smile; whats makin me frown see,
My jobs got me down but not out,
And the pain in my back is makin me wanna scream and shout,
And den There’s a girl and she’s got my smile,
Hope it stays dat way forever and a while,
Cuz I need all the grins that I can achieve,
Cuz im tryna keep dis sadness and anger away from me,
So I’ll keep my head held up high and search for tomorrow,
Fuck today and all today’s sorrows,
Cuz I’ll be alright as long as I keep grindin and keep my head held high,
Just like T. I, said: I’m gonna live my life,
So until the next time you see me write,
Just remember there’s only three things worth the fight:
Friends, Family, And what you know is right.

Lost

I’m lost out here on the road,

And it seems I have No where to go,

I’ve lost it, I’ve done lost my mind,

I’ve lost the past,present,and future; I’ve lost all time,

I reach for the sky only to grab the ground,

I tried to jump up but I only fall down,

I show only smiles, but I only feeling frowns,

I’m a real good swimmer,but in my tears I drown,

Happiness I want, but for me it can’t be found,

Married to sadness; it’s got me locked-down,

They say don’t be so serious, well I’m a sad clown,

I’m like a beautiful song without the sound,

My heart still beats,but it’s more like a pound,

My pain’s never-ending, no edges, it’s round,

I tried to break free, but it seems I’m well-bound,

It’s a kingdom of pain, and only I can hold the crown,

But I guess all in all I’m stuck on this road,

And it seems that I have no where to go,

But slowly as I start to find my time,

I will slowly start to find my mind.

Rocky Road

It seems my whole life I have been on this rocky slate,

Maybe it’s meant to be; Maybe my life has a rocky fate,

Because it seems no matter what, I stay buried on this rocky bottom,

And as these rocks begin to pile up, it seems there is no stopping’ em,

So with the weight of the world on my shoulders I walk along,

Stacked up high I tote these boulders,but I carry on,

Steadily I struggle out here on this rocky road,

But even with this mountain of stones, I request no one to share the load,

Why would ask one to share this mountain of pain,

It’s fine for me because I now only have gravel running through these veins,

But though I have a gravel battle sweat never will I let this heart become stone,

Instead I will grind this mound of stone until every bit of the pain is gone,

Because even though I am consumed by this Iron ore,

Within me I will always have this molten core,

And with a heart of passion burning through I will survive,

Because there is no rocky mountain I can’t Breakdown and climb.

East is West

These tears I shed,

And this blood I bled,

These words I heard,

These words I said,

These fears I hide,

These tears I cried,

These words I hear,

These words I sigh,

What will I do,

And who will I be,

The words in these ears,

Have confused me,

How will I change,

For better or worse,

These words stuck here,

This is my curse,

Will life let me be,

Will life let me grow,

Or will I be stuck,

With only these words to know,

I fear the worst,

And hope for the best,

But it seems my north is south,

and my east is west.

Hand and Hand

People often ask why I do what I do,

To often the truth was I never knew,

But now that is no longer true,

I find that everything I do is for you,

I have turned away from those who brought upon me shame,

I have forgotten the reason behind trying to spit game,

I have remembered the good and for you I have changed,

Washed clean, I have bleached away my pasts’ stains,

I have welcomed the new life my new way,

Taken the right path and watched the wrong wash away,

Accepted all the colors and steered away from the gray,

Mending the pieces that I have always tried to break,

So now alone I will ever stand,

Cause now I stand a complete man,

Never again will life seem meek or bland,

Because now we walk together hand and hand.
