My Truths & Thoughts III

I ran with cats that paid the ultimate price
they would not listen so fell victim to not paying attention in life

and some were so consumed with the hustle
they lived their lives on auto pilot perpetually stuck in the struggle

forced to fumble trying to find their niche
where opportunity don't knock instead it played ding dong ditch

as seasoned switch, I recognized inside every case of beer
I left a lot of wasted years

I' ve seen the harsh reality of life erase my peers
with sin that as sick as the city of Sodom here

Its got me wondering why we can't be better men
instead simply succumbing to the flesh we are embedded in
and me I'm no different
and most times my affiliations became a significant hindrance

I learned to brake from snakes kick them to thee curb
my sanity was leaving I was living on re-serves
my last piece of humanity I'm trying to pre-serve
but sooner or later we all get what we de-serve

and when my time comes to suffer the retribution
I will ask for forgiveness but won't offer excuses
