ESSENCE


WE THE ESSENCE 
WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN 
THE FUTURE’S PRESENCE

IN LIFE WE ARE GIVEN A CHANCE
BUT NOT A CHANCE TO CHOOSE 
ON HOW WE WALK A IN OUR OWN SHOES 
I DIDN’T CHOOSE TO BE ME 
SO WHAT IS THE USE 
IM GOD GIVEN BUT ABUSED 
BEING EXPOSED TO LIES AND TRUTH
ENDING UP IN ME LOOSING MY YOUTH 
TO THINK I WAS UNDER YOUR OWN WING 
ENDING UP IN ME NOT A BEING BUT JUST A THING
RISING IN GROWTH AND LIFE BEGS THE QUESTION 
WAS I PLANNED OR AM I SOMTETHING ELSE?
BECAUSE IM YOUR CHILD, NOT YOUR FUTURE WEALTH

THE PURITY OF MY FLAME, 
IS SLOWLY REDUSED BY YOUR OVER POWERING ANGER
PLEASE! DO ME A FAVOR OF
LOVING ME EVEN IF I WRONGED YOU 
I DON’T UNERSTAND WHY PAIN MEAN LOVE
HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ME TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT
WHEN WHAT YOU IS WRONG
IM SURROUND BY YOU 
YET YOU THINK I WONT BECOME LIKE YOU
IM A SPONGE OF LIFE
TAKING IN EVERYTHING FROM MY SOCIETY
WHAT YOU DON’T WANT ME TO SEE 
ILL SEE BECAUSE YOU SAW IT 
WHAT YOU DON’T WANT ME TO HEAR 
ILL HEAR BECAUSE YOU HEARD IT 
AND WHAT YOU DON’T ME TO KNOW 
I’LL KNOW BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT
