Filtered Distorted Reality

Life lessons…. You’re not ready to experience life, If you haven’t experienced life. That doesn’t mean the past’s the future. It tends to be the future for seen by the past. Respect is the first rule. The next is to forget the first rule if they never respect you. 1+1=2 1+1=11 if they bleed the same way as you. Equation aside, it’s do or you die. Opposite forces collide The one who’s left standing? Tis the only difference between you and I. Life’s mountain, we climb Breath for breath. Step for step You milk it for what it’s worth, Still the cream will rise. Sun down to sun rise, Never take a break, Never pump the breaks It’s a real one to look death in the eyes. To no surprise While passing another peak. Grim reap in the benefits Just do it then die.

WOW, the ending is straight to the point. Hi Gerald... I like your freestyling flow and rhyme. I use to think it's all for nothing however, at the end of each day, it might have been. No one escapes. I honestly think no one is left standing. Thanks for sharing one of life's thoughts. It's very meaningful. Always ~LINDA~
