The World As I See IT

As I see it. Early to rise. Fighting traffic, that's a classic story. Rewind repeat, change clothes, Rewind repeat change clothes. Now press play to go. 40 hours a week of those mind numbing conversations contemplations on how to make business grow. But just below, street game hustles, mind fried customers who are addicts of street business. Crack pipe, sparking lights, veins that caress venom. Children are not children. Women are not women. And men have wavered, choosing to live on their knees rather than dying for beliefs. As I see it. Wars and rumors of wars on foreign soil. Feed the compliancy of our home base because we just watched it on T.V. Worlds apart but only one world to live in. As I see it. Cramped living spaces. Over time the racial faces change and market value raises. Now, it's prime property. Prime monopoly, sub prime catastrophe. Sub level, real trouble because companies ceilings are made of glass. The way that I see it. Better believe it. Be strategic. Just getting life as it comes is a falsehood. Change the cards that are dealt. The world I live in. The world as I see it.
