Walk The Line

Walk the Line

Walk the line between love and hate.

Walk the line between sanity and insanity.

Walk the line between reality and dream.

There are various lines that we walk on a daily basis often times more than one at a time.

How does one keep it balanced?

How does one keep from being totally immersed in one realm?

Is sanity all it’s cracked up to be?

Do we actually find freedom in an insane or unrealistic plane?

Imitation of Life


Why you want to be white

when you know being black is what’s right?

You want to show you have some class?

Huh, they don’t care about yo black ass

They belittle you and call you a nigger

They just making themselves feel bigger

You call that class?

You can kiss my black ass

Meant To Be

Meant To Be

I’m not meant to be a snow bunny.  I’m meant to be in warmer climates, sitting on the beach sipping some fruity island drink.

I’m not meant to be dealing with the office politics of day to day life.  I’m meant to be dealing with the politics that I create.

I’m not meant to be dealing with older women who feel insecure because I’m younger and smarter than they are.  I’m meant to be calling the shots.

I’m not meant to be defending myself because of the colour of my skin.  I’m meant to be doing me because of my own merits.

I’m not meant to be liked by you.  I’m meant to be loving me.

Selfish

Is it selfish of me to want to see?

Is it selfish of me to want to be?

Is it selfish of me to just be?

Is it selfish of me?

I ask you, is it selfish of me to want to see where I be?  How I be?

I ask you, is it selfish of me to be the best that I can be?  Who I be?

I ask you, is it selfish of me to just be me?

Is it selfish of me to just be me?
