Is Ur Intent Justice Or Revenge

Ask urself what is ur intent, justice or revenge, acting superior trying to even the score, there's no competition who is discriminated and oppressed more, ur missing the point, this excessive political correctness got me annoyed, I'm frustrated by people preaching white privilege's historical guilt and shame, truth and equality are not a game, I am not comparing, simply life experience sharing, how dare u say I'm wrong, where do ya'll think I get the content of my poetry or songs, u don't know my whole journey, I forgive but won't forget those who've burned me, attacking my reputation and character, does wisdom equate masters, so many misnomers and presumption, these bullies have tremendous gall and gumption, attacking completely innocents, is the end of days really imminent, cuz evil has won and in control, apparently we sold our collective soul, so I'm stuck sinking in this shit ship, I'm not impressed by shticks or gimmicks, be ur authentic self, I try to always genuinely help, open ur hearts and minds, u get so much further being respectful and kind, never just fall in line, nor dim ur shine, and let ur freak flag fly, have hope and faith that everything will be better than just fine, don't let fear rule u, like fools do, scratch every itch, being courageous and fierce doesn't make u a bitch, be careful ur fire doesn't extinguish, consent must always be relinquished, try ur best, most of existence is trial and error or plain guess, we need to actually listen, avoid debt aka financial prison, have compassion and empathy, be epic and legendary, we're all only one special and unique, I'm at age 36 and still think I haven't piqued, gotta keep at it trying, shouldn't waste time worrying whining and crying, u can't change people, why isn't marijuana fully legal, wish I had a bigger social circle, and there weren't all these impossible obstacles to hurdle, when did it all get so complicated, we must be chipped and inoculated, like our privacy and bodies don't belong to us, a key element missing between me and my government is trust, I've simply had quite enough, I wish our president would learn to lead with love!

Can Only The Straight Black Rap

Some say don't rap, unless ur straight or black, who says so tho, do the best u know bro, fuck other people's opinions, they don't know a thing about hyperbole alliteration or synonyms, I'm a grammar Nazi, with this vocabulary who's gonna stop me, I'm intelligent witty and original, keeping the swearing to a minimal, but my content is still consciously racy, I give zero fucks if ya'll hate me, religious extremism can't even save me, lately stability's been shaky, we touch upon the truth vaguely, tip toeing around, almost terrified of being profound, trying to bring levels up not down, my smile's become a frown, cuz I'm still super sad, about the passing of my dad, my new guardian angel, is our collective fate all entangled, sinking in the same ship, attending college doesn't mean ur fully equipped, life is fragile and complicated, I feel tremendous pressure that stress seems almost obligated, helping us rise to the occasion, welcoming compromise would be amazing, I'm tired of only sacrifice, a lack of success will not suffice, I've paid my dues, are God and Jesus a ruse, I'm confused, am I destined to be used and abused, how many times must I lose, experience the boos from my shoes, u get up on stage, totally fearless and unafraid, performing a poem or song u wrote, go consistently to ur bill paying day job yet still hold hope, somehow manage to keep the faith, how long can u wait, as u contemplate if living is in vain, fulfilling my passion is not a game, it's my purpose, we gain more wisdom from stuff that hurts us, but what I have learned is no good deed goes unpunished, I wish the amount of times karma bit me in the butt was oneish, u def get what u give, is the Illuminati a myth, perhaps we'll never finid out, how does one claim clout, I use my voice loud and proud, fuck all ya'll who say that in hip hop no gays or whites allowed!

Ignore The Judgmental Criticisms & Opinions Of Minions

What if this is the best life has to offer, really wish success was softer, nobody ever said it was easy, but why are people so sleazy, the rich are still greedy, and won't help the needy, the only way we'll make it is together, New Englanders complain too much about the weather, u should already know there are four seasons, I'm starting to think we'll never get answers or reasons, even in death, do u think everyone has regrets, I think there's so much better yet to come, only u decide when ur done, don't let others dictate, whether ur a failure or great, it's all about self worth, u grow more from hurt, what's important is u try, u don't have to justify why, follow ur gut and heart, we can't forever stay young like Peter Pan or Bart, we all age, it's tough to navigate this maze, it's very imperative, u don't misinterpret my observations as negative, I'm being genuine and pragmatic, don't enable or practice the bad habit, of reacting without thinking, time moves forward even while blinking, everything can change in an instant, what happened to the cigarette brand Winston, not that I really care, just smoking pot I don't have the same fear, not that there's no consequence, the medical and science industry are both on the fence, it shouldn't be category one, make sure to take vitamin D if there isn't any sun, otherwise get ready for seasonal depression, I like to keep peeps guessing, and on their toes, I hate the phrase "hey Joe what do u know", my answer is everything, I feel joyous and merry when I rap and sing, but funny enough I'm not a big dancer, I'm gay but not a prancer, in a league of my own, not very anxious to buy a home, unless I was staying put for at least ten years, I think I have 1000 Sirius XM shares, I haven't ever touched, I don't believe I have winning the lottery type of luck, but I truly have faith at least one of my songs will eventually go viral, this country is headed in a major downhill spiral, I'm sure this poem is not cohesive, eh fluidity who needs it, laugh out loud, I try not to use harsh words to bout, cuz they too can do damage, hurt feelings won't just vanish, healing happens eventually, stay strong mentally, never let others crush ur spirit, I know u say u listened but did u hear it, the passion and the pain, no 2 people even twins are the same, embrace ur uniqueness, be hopeful and don't dwell on the bleakness, usually it'll all be ok, everyone moves at their own pace, ur never too old, to have dreams and goals, lead by example, shouldn't let hate trample, love does conquer all, u can get back up if u fall, just keep ur head up, u don't need to have wings to fly high with the doves, let ur mind go blind or divine to soar, simply living u learn more, not all kids need to go to college, I mean haven't we learned there's a difference between wisdom and knowledge, some things can't be taught, I despise trying to be bought, friends aren't automatically fans, stop comparing urself to others and meet ur own demands, ignore jealous haters with their judgmental criticisms and opinions, would u rather be king or one of their many minions?!

Laterz Haters

They say the law of nature is survival of the fittest, now-a-days it seems more like thrival or Snoop style thrivival of the richest, it's impossible to get ahead, gonna be in debt even after I'm dead, unless my music blows up, I'm all about truth consciousness and love, there's enough negativity doom gloom and evil, who's the revolutionary leader who'll reign in all these sheeple, we've gotten outta control and outta hand, I know I'm only one man, but isn't that all it takes, I can't endure anymore funerals or wakes, especially great legends, Christmas for me has nothing to do with presents, it's about family, even tho this time of year is stressful insanity, I find the simple joys, ur never too old to play with toys, u know guys and their gadgets, I attract lost souls like a magnet, but I'm ok with that, I have faith the universe has my back, no good deed goes unpunished, randomly craving some hummus, specifically the garlic one, even tho my breath will get me shunned, I don't care, I have bigger fears, like never making it as a successful artist, I wanna work the smartest not the hardest, so slow and steady, when my 15 minutes comes I'll be prepared and ready, I try to keep my raw talent cultivated, like exercise it's not easy becoming motivated, hoping eventually it'll all pay off, I'm sure many will laugh and scoff, they say uve made it when u have haters, now I have no problem just peace signing "laterz", I'm out, tired of the same ole bout, I need to go on an adventure, perhaps even collaborate or mentor, helping others help ourselves, don't define urself by a lack of wealth, most of us are in the same boat, I'm surprised they haven't surrounded the White House with a moat, don't gloat, be cautious of the words u spoke, try not to burn bridges, don't discriminate against women blacks gays or midgets, we need to more accepting, even the poor need protecting, our government should do better at infrastructure investments, instead of letting fall by the waistline, facts aren't usually heard thru the grapevine, that's just rumor and gossip, wish people would use more common sense reason and logic, which reminds me to make an apology, as a rapper I like practicing and creating new words that add to my phraseology, do u have a thesaurus handy, I prefer any flavor ice cream over candy, it's simply a preference, most don't get my sarcasm or my obscure movie reference, my wit goes over their heads, thank God I'm off all psychiatric meds, my mind is clear, sometimes my poetry isn't written to share, but I always still post, I don't need to be the best or have the most, I like being an average Joe, with a killer rap flow, which as a gay white boy makes me unique, I proudly wear and wave my flag labeling me a freak, and like to think I have yet to pique, apparently I'm alluring cuz of my mystique, keeping peeps guessing, while always analyzing and wrestling with life's never-ending lessons, it's impossible to understand how failure and mistakes can be disguised blessings, if existence is a fated tossed salad then the only thing in our control is what type of dressing!

I Wanna Drive The Ride & Decide Whether I Live Or Die

Life is a ride, filled with lows and highs, ride the waves, try and be brave, cuz when fear rules, we tolerate abuse, we all like to bitch and complain, many are superficial and vain, beauty isn't just skin deep, wish I was on a win streak, instead I've had a string of not bad but terrible luck, I may occasionally bottom but I'm not used to being fucked, especially by the universe on the regular, must I remind y'all government is secular, there's separation of church and state for a reason, it's hard to fathom or believe Trump hasn't committed treason, I'm sick of billion dollar companies not paying a fair share of taxes, there seems to be only the rich and the poor brackets, while the top has more wealth than the bottom combined, u can't get ahead these days by ur basic 9 to 5 grind, many have a passion hobby or job on the side, along with Pac and Biggie hip hop died, there's a lack of music with inspirational substance, too much of statistics is short sighted lacking circumference, I play the long game, fuck guilt and shame, I'm done being Catholic, traffic drives me spastic, as we get older we become less elastic, wonder if they'll invent something to eradicate plastic, so we'll have less toxic waste, existence isn't a race, focus more on ur imprint, most adults are potty trained infants, children dressed up as grown, why are so many trans and gays still disowned, family inherently implies unconditionally loved, am I only the one capable of blind trust, people naturally suck, evil is running a muck, chaos and divisiveness is rampant, while the Kardasians are glamping, what's the point of hope, faith is an invisible tightrope, can u take the first step off the edge, or make that leap when u can't see a safety net, some say courage others claim insanity, how do u express anger without profanity, it's like being sad without tears, cultivating my art took years and years, and ya'll don't see my struggle, nor the shit I had to muddle, it ain't easy, and I'm not greedy or sleazy, I've paid my dues, stop reporting fake news, spreading gossip and rumor, always been a late bloomer, but at least I eventually get there, we need to be more socialistic and share, especially when it comes to resources, enough posturing and mongering using armed forces, or even worse nuclear weapons, these sheep need shepherding, that's a near rhyme, put on some R Kelly "Bump 'N Grind", let ur body go and move, while ur mind soothes to the groove, gotta find a way to relax, I barely have the desire to shave let alone wax, get over it I'm hairy, and a faggot/fairy, that's just who I am, I wonder if God laughs when we plan, do we have any sort of control, I didn't give permission for our leader to sell our soul, I wanna drive, so at least I can take the responsibility for whether I live or die!

Evolve Blossom Or Bloom Before Collapse/Impending Doom

Will oppression and discrimination ever truly stop, why are republicans so hell bent on making it impossible for gays to adopt, perhaps next they'll take away our right to marry, I'm excited for the new album "Caution" by Mariah Carey, I too, have been writing new tunes, just been in that mood, I'm coming off abrasive and rude, but I'm just fed up, with lack of success and love, it's like I'm cursed, RI is the worst, such a small bubble, when ur bored it's easy to get into trouble, that's why I've been keeping to myself, there's only so much fam and friends can do to help, sometimes simply sitting with me in silence, can calm the chaos and mental violence, I'm agitated and stressed, always giving 100% of my best, but that doesn't seem to be good enough, life ain't fair it's tough, but music pulls me thru, it isn't what u say but if u do, most don't walk their talk, they'd rather stare and gawk, criticize gossip and judge, gotta learn to let go and not hold onto a grudge, I'm obsessed with ice cream in general esp with fudge, we all need a lil kick in the ass/nudge, to get the ball rolling, please quit the online trolling, have the guts to say shit to my face, our representation is a disgrace, humanity has created excessive pollution and waste, try to get thru the moment with haste, when we need to let it be, money isn't something u get free, doesn't grow on trees, accept that we agree to disagree, that's ok, I'm not afraid, we're different in our own individually unique way, tomorrow is another day, but I ain''t got the patient to wait, don'r rely on hope and faith, they'll get u far, not everyone is a Hollywood star, or gets one automatically on the walk of fame, existence isn't a board game, but it is competitive, we are responsible for the officials elected, wish we had better choices, I try to inspire others to find their voices, we're much stronger together, stop complaining about the weather, it is what it is, mind ur own business, shouldn't air out dirty laundry online, or pretend everything is hunky dory or reply I'm fine, especially if ur not, u get what u got, or at least that's what karma is for, why is it we want it all and more, never really happy or content, to deal with stress I get bent, not a big drinker, but def an over analyzer and an over thinker, can be my own worst enemy, hope I have a long lasting Tupacesque legacy, he was a revolutionary leader, it's absolutely ridiculous how billionaires are even greedier, no one person should have or needs a trillion dollars, where are all the economic scholars, we've gotta fix this ship, and get a grip, cuz right now the course we're on is unsustainable, health care should be unalienable, we're gonna need to unite and fight, before they take more of our rights, this country is headed for a collapse/impending doom, unless we somehow evolve blossom or bloom!

Situations Vary But No Exceptions

Everyone wants to be the exception to the rule, when did being a good person become so uncool, we've bastardized righteous, imagine being paid for niceness, or valued at what ur contribution is to humanity, the level of evil that's prevalent is sheer insanity, we're headed for some dark times, can't pretend that things are fine, kicking the can down the line, it doesn't help to bitch and wine, make a change, retract those claws and fangs, learn empathy, focus on ur legacy, what is it u want to leave, it's wrong to lie steal kill or cheat, there is no gray area, this divisiveness is gonna cause mass chaos and hysteria, I even bet we will see the fall of the dollar, if u need me holla, but there's only so much I can do, the most important thing to teach kids is finding the truth, I often feel morally superior, being poor black gay or an immigrant doesn't make anyone inferior, all people are created equal, I wonder if after death there's a sequel, no one knows, life ain't fair that's just how it goes, we've got to work together, to make this Earth cleaner sustainable and better, look how we're treating our ultimate mother, if we treated each other like sisters and brothers, the world would be much more peaceful, the population's becoming extreme pauper or regal, no longer a middle class, can u decipher life's riddle fast, perhaps it requires common sense, can someone tell me where all the shaman went, or how about revolutionary leaders, I'm tired of politically correct people pleasers, ruffle some feathers, stop complaining about typical weather, we should be worried about global warming, these graduated storms are a warning, our President won't heed, can we federally legalize weed, enough already, the global economy is super unsteady, reliably unpredictable, laws are real it's commandments are biblical, and that's why there's separation of church and state, there's a fine line between adultery and rape, that's why character is an important aspect of voting, I'm also skeptical about anonymous quoting, there's no need for evidence or proof in the court of public opinion, I've given up on social media and the virtual reality dominion, online profiles portray the extra special, this next generation is coddled with participation medals, we're becoming completely inept, I wonder if Trump has any sympathy or regret, perhaps he's an alien or robot, personally I think he's just an old fart, who lost touch with the average person, the hard working poor are hurting, can barely make ends meat living check to check, we really need to have a better more secure process to elect, especially when the loser wins the popular vote, it's not always easy to remember exactly what I wrote, it takes lots and lots of rehearsal and practice, is Caitlyn Jenner considered both an actor/actress, no disrespect meant, she ain't no Clark Kent, her costume can't be taken off, just because it's different we shouldn't insult or scoff, circumstances vary, even though gays have the right to marry, I'm not really interested in that arrangement, I'd probably have an indefinite engagement, similar to Kurt and Goldie, I just want a self sufficient partner who will unconditionally love and hold me when I'm sad or lonely!
