Trapped

stuck within my head all day
just thinking with nothing to say
just trapped within myself
so confused not knowing what to do
my mind is a jail with my heart the cell
just everything trapped inside
its all stuck no parole for life…

This Material World

we live in a world of material things
everybody dreamin staring at digital dreams
thinking hoping wishing
it will come to them
without spending a cent

no hardwork no sweat no tears
just praying to the man above
but that’s not what god does
no hardwork equals no dreamin’
its never on a silver platter
I don’t know what you’re thinkin’

kids growing up getting cell phones at 10
teenagers getting pregnant is becoming a trend
with all of these material things
you have to sit back and see what life brings

A Dream and Real Life

the cool breeze flowing through the window
with your head softly laid on a pillow
another day has been put to rest
close your eyes and open the quest

a brand new world that’s all your own
anything you can think of
you’re finally home

now inside your mind
anything can happen
Los Angeles, California or even Manhattan
a whole world is waiting
all covered in satin…

with the sun rising
your body begins to realize
this isn’t real…
what does it symbolize?

which is which?
how do we know?
live your dream
and dream your life
confuse your mind
and make your dreams come alive

A dream and real life
with a dream to summarize
and a life to surprise

The Slap

thoughts jumping around
without making a sound
your brain begins to hurt
with everything unheard

your lips begin to move
like they’re in a groove
but you didn’t even think
as your heart begins to sink

with your brain hurting more
and your heart on the floor
you wish you didn’t say it
but you thought it’d fit

now with your brain so sore
and your heart on the floor
you can’t take it back
you’ve done it now…WHACK!

To Act or React

in the heat of the moment you react
no time to think
and within a blink
you react

with time to prepare
ideas are flowing
your knowledge is growing
you are preparing to act

to act or to react
that is the question
brainless people choose to react
as the intelligent man chooses to act

with no thoughts of what could happen next
the reactor takes action and sees the domino effect
while for the man who chose to act
he just sits back and laughs

with knowledge of what could happen next
the actor takes them down one by one
until he has finally won.

sometimes we don’t think and we react
so put that brain to use and choose to act
take it in your own hands
and make better plans

for the one who acts triumphs over he who reacts.

Don’t

don’t judge a book by its cover
don’t jump to conclusions
and don’t laugh at him or her
don’t think you know what’s going on
don’t ignore that hitchhiker or that con
for they were once just like you
you don’t have to judge them for what they do

every person in this world has something in common
we all come from one god
and god don’t make no junk
understand that and find that spunk

whether it be in their heart
whether it be in their brain
don’t judge and don’t presume they’re insane

something made them that way
it ruined their fame
but they aren’t to blame
discover that spunk
find where it is
and throw away the junk

Let It Go

it’s never over even in
this place filled with sin
with drugs and money controlling lives
and thugs and gangsters holding knives
it’s never over don’t listen to the lies
anyone and anything can change a life
it’s all in your head
maybe alive
maybe dead
your brain is controlled by you
not your friend
greatness is achieved by you
mistakes are made by you
no excuses
but plenty of bruises
no pain no gain
whether it be physical
whether it be mental
there is always pain
it’s your job to stay sane
two letters makes a world of difference
when you’re sane or insane
so live your life and live up to your name.

Think, Think, Think

thinking is like a time bomb
thought after thought
that may never be caught
think too long
you may do something wrong
but don’t think enough
and things are sure to get rough
to find the perfect thought
you must find it quickly
running through your mind like a stream swiftly

grab it by the horns
and try and dodge the thorns
the thought may run away
before you have anything to say

life is such a fast matter
some waste it way
drink after drink
and never have time to think

thinking is like a time bomb
but it is also like a sweet song
use it right and you make others bright
with this wonderful thing
you can open your mouth and sing
or keep it to yourself
not to share with anyone else

use your mind right
and create better insight
share your thoughts with others
because we are all sisters and brothers

there is no stupid thought
unless it were unthought
be aware of that
and put on your thinking cap.

The Outlook

today is now
tomorrows the future
yesterday was the past
and you can’t take back the smallest gasp

so live for today
and pray for tomorrow
there’s good in everyday
minus the sorrow

catch the memories
and summon the laughter
it’ll stick with you just like plaster
for just the smallest memory
can change an entire century

there may not be good in everyday
but you should always have
something good to say
for just one word
can give you a smile
choose to put it in a file
or you can have it as big as the Nile

we must have a positive outlook
because just one man forgave us all
and even forsook
our sins our wrongdoing or shortcomings
all forgotten
because of the son the only begotten

Words

what is the most powerful thing on earth?
something you learn right after birth
they can change anything
they’re used when praying
they hurt
they help
they inspire
they make a liar.

the most powerful thing
this world has to bring
get punished and abused
and that’s how they get used
but in some cases
they changes people’s faces
from a frown to a smile
as big as the nile
without them we would find a way
but there would be nothing to say
because just one word
can change one person’s outlook
or maybe even the entire world

words are so powerful
and they can’t die or be spent
like money
cent after cent
they’re better than guns
because they have unlimited ammo
words are amazing
even better than cammo.

you can’t hide from words
they’ll always find you
no matter what you do
they can make you or break you
so watch watch what you do.
