Another day

Star light,star bright
I wish I may I wish might
Get through Another day 
another night
a vicious cycle a useless fight

Can i just Be left alone 
Maybe i will turn out all right

As Time slowly ticks away
Another hour another day
Tomorrow's another day
It ends up the same anyway

Another Gain another loss
Blah!blah!a greedy boss
A coin flip a hacky sack toss 
Cross my fingers,make the sign 
of the cross 

It's crazy cause thinking so 
much has me losing all the 
sleep 
I guess whatever they tell 
themselves to sleep is what 
helps them awake
Shepard's should be concerned 
with counting sheep.
I should fault myself,for letting 
everyone take,take,take!!!!

The feeling of being abused
There's only so much I can 
tolerate 
Will I always be used?
How many can I exonerate?

How many people can I let take 
me for a ride
Before I turn to foolish pride
there is not an once of me left
Cause my life fell victim to a 
petty debt. 

I call it petty 
it wasn't taken in one lump 
sum
Like a meal for a homeless bum
Penny by penny

A friend an enemy
Was anyone a friend to me?
Everything feels like a 
compromise
Wish full thinking had me 
hoping for a surprise

Everything seems so 
predictable 
Lies so large they warp our own 
principles 

Like a Black man trying to rent 
a room in Mississippi, and all 
are vacant
Can't help you sir!the man at 
checkin replied 
I know how the story goes
But Dam!!I wish it wouldn't 
have to be so blatant 

Virtues,a vice 
A thin line between the two
Deceit,advice
1 and one makes two
A mountain,a grain of rice
How do we measure the two?
You can move a mountain for 
someone,steel a grain of rice 
,and the relationship is over  
with through!!
