What am i doin
To whom am i proving
What exactly is the satisfactory quota for lacking 
Days are subrtacting
Actions leading up something thats coming 
No bluffing
Not for nothing i see something
What it is idk vision stunting
Back and forth strutting
Strolling rolling
Keep moving forward while the damn things 
And im choking
The life outa this life
Puttin the battery back in my back to continue to 
Up all day and some days 
So now im trying to decide which road is right
Looking for money 
Uffing hungry 
Daughters on my mind but my nieces and 
nephews in front me
Always looking but never matching what i expect 
of me
Its ugly
The struggle to stay humble in this bubble of 
Im so sick
Half the time feeling rediculous
This is nutz
How the uff am i so tuff but fall victim to bad luck 
Or bad ambitions
The girls sake 
I recover from my mistakes z/&

    Eddie: It's not really fair for me to comment because I don't know you, don't know what you've gone through, don't know where you'd like to go. But my understanding of your words finds an emptiness in your heart. A disappointment. I don't preach to strangers, but Jesus might be your answer. oldbuck
