insult to injury

they say, slow & steady wins the race,

but i’m down on my luck working at a faster pace,

my love, i don’t need no more space…

i been lost

i been found

sometimes within the same day

do you feel the same way?

i just want everyone to make it home safe,

so they can rest & reflect

pray & prepare for obstacles that may interject

that peace of mind that we strive for,

my love for life

starts to drift away,

the shade of my skin seems to dictate my days

thoughts of a better tomorrow seem to slip away,

but I stand my ground hoping today is the day’



stomach full of butterflies
helps me see-thru your clever disguise
waking you up, just to catch the sunrise
you know, love that never really dies
I always get lost in your mysterious eyes
Avoiding lies, just to improvise
I share fries, keep my sneakers tied & roll snake eyes’

breakfast, lunch, & dinner

I called you around 4
& expected you to answer
You know I’m out here hustling,
Politicking with all the gangsters
I even skipped my last class,
Chapter 7, the biology of cancer
thought I was gonna get some ass,
but yet you still ain’t answer…
My mind and heart tightens up
Just like,
the marijuana to my fronto’
How thoughts escape me and then comeback even stronger?
I’m up right now, but I been counting the hours


you’re my kind of beautiful
breaking out the mold like usual
I don’t think they’ll ever get use to you,
and being boxed in seems so juvenile
I just want to vibe & groove with you
it takes two to tango,
I just hope I’m suitable
For you to let your guard down when it feels mutual…

to grow

it ain’t gotta be spring
for me to be sprung
i ain’t gotta’ know all the words
just to sing along
i can tell you’re a star
even when the sky is dark
so let me make another wish
while you’re close enough,
i hope these thoughts help out the both of us’
