The Definition of Self

The definition of self: Is in the acknowledgement of self-wealth Understanding the value of one's worth Between the divinity of death and birth Not as scrounging creatures in this dirty earth But as lords, ladies; master; mistresses; Kings; queens; gods and goddesses Of a boundless and limitless universe Putting an inverse to the suggested perimeters of one's mind Having to mind the fickle fragile emotions that lag behind Refine by "father time" under God's design Where morals resides and combined With breathing: the intake of what's good and exhaling the bad It's so sad we aren't glad that we survived Our hardest moments when our hearts get broken; Lives are taken withtears soaked an' We kill ourselves with our so called "Distant, Destined Dreams and Schemes" Which we want at that moment, which comes with "Fame and Fortune Forgetting Fatigue and Fatality" That's when the gravity of reality draws us back to sanity; Constantly pulling us down when we want to succeed; Giving us doubt when we want to achieve; Losing our faith when we want to believe That in life there are a lot of treasures to retrieve That's why I'll believe this is a summary of the live we lead And proceed to sow these evil seeds In other people's gardens but when done to us we don't give pardons And I have to end where I started that... "The definition of self: Is in the acknowledgement of self-wealth, Understanding the value of one's worth Between the divinity of death and birth Not as scrounging creatures in this dirty earth"
