My truths and thoughts IV

these young cats are sick
bullets zip then they dip
witnesses zip their lips 
wont say sh1t

they just skate off
homicide scene taped of
no dental records the whole face shot straight off

no his squad plots revenge
the cycle don't end

there can be nothing further
than thou shalt not commit murder
on their minds
in these sinful times

the elders say the end is near just around the corner
it's even closer if they swarm you with the toaster to warm ya

don't want to be a goner you best to use your brain
this ain't a spectator sport bullets don't know name

and there's no rhyme or reason life ain't the fairest
I've seen the wicked prosper, the righteous perish

the fool made of wise men, the strong  turn to weaklings
in the land of the blind a one eyed man is king

and we blaspheme 
with all this songs of murder we sing

in a sea of sin we drown
with nothing holy around

were like sheep without a she shepherd
lost looking for direction
self hate got us  pointing weapons
at our own reflection

my mind flexes
spending time trying to find the message
but every answer uncovered lead me to another question
to death we all are destined
but what really so perplexing
is no one knows the hour or the second
while powerful but reckless 
idiots with weapons
maim with no discretion
like their brains were infected
