You are not a Starfish

Keep making progress
Learn from your losses
Embrace new challenges you'll face
You will always have options
God gave you two legs
So you would'nt be stuck like a starfish

My First Priority is Me

If theres one thing i know 
That's set in stone
Is that you can't be
Everything
To everyone you know
So just be you
If their expectin more
It's time to let them go

Paper Clips

Most people are easily bent out of shape
Like Paperclips
Because they can't hold it together
Like Paperclips
My words are weapons so I lock & load
My Paper Clips
I bet your two cents is worth less 
Than a Paperclip

Give me a Break

Break pattern, break chains, 
Break the mold, break through new ground
Break the binds, that can hold you down
Break away, break the tie, win the game
I hate to break it to you is what I love to say
Right before I break it down
No I dont belive in luck,
Bad break and break a leg statements 
I have no need for them, I hate when people break them out
You wanna make an omelette well 
You know you got to break some eggs
Those are the breaks my friends
But not the ones that slow you down

Dont Be a Trust Dispenser

Thinks he's on some cool ish
But really on some bull ish
The type of dude that
You want nothing to do with

This is the type of dude 
That will  promise you everything 
Wont deliver anything
& use excuses endlessly
He'll be acting like a boss 
As he undermines your cause
Sometimes you just gotta cut ties n walk
& Whats really wack,  is when hes needed most,
Is when he busts out the o'llllll dissapearing act
I say screw him pshhh, who cares where hes at
Coming back deflecting blame & trying to make you carry that
All hes got is this,
Inflateted sense of confidence
And poppin his ballon
Shouldnt take you too long and 
Dont benifit him....
Straight to hater mode
No cash to spend....
Straight to do me a favor mode
Behind bars again.....
Staight to  prayer mode
Guess mr untouchable 
Got caught up in the danger zone
Who needs enimies, with friends like these
This guy all types of nuts, like trader joes

Thinks hes on some cool ish
But really on some bull ish
The type of dude that
You want nothing to do with

Dont let all of his kindness jestures
impress ya
& turn you into a trust despenser
Youll regret the 
day you let your guard down, 
yes he will pretend to, be genuine
Then switch  up from jeckyll 2 hyde
In a few seconds Time, his agendas
to convince ya that hes dependa- 
Bull, which is bull, I bet when ya, first met him,
The impression that he left ya
with is a confident man with all the answers like alexa
But guess what 
The less ya put creadance into the the things hes speakin
the better off youll be in the long run, yessir

Social Maestro

I'll instigate an incident
Exaggerate significance 
Initiate a conflict 
Purely form of interest
Consider me an Asshole
Although I'm considerate 
Enough to let you speak
Until you prove that you're an idiot

This is your world

This is your world
Your day and
Your time
It's all right there 
For the taking

Go for the win
Drain the clock
Drain the shot
Cut down the nets
The dedication 
To the craft you've been
Mastering
For so many days that
You expect to win
Anticipate being
A champion
All cavelier when it's on the line
Because losing here 
Has never crossed your mind
Hanging banners there
Like Chandeliers
On some whatever stuff
Like it happens all the time
Absorb the losses
To inspire progress
Get on a roll
Until your tire's popping
It could all be yours
But nothing's given
Because competition 
Is unforgiving
But that's to be expected
You got to stay the course
& Dont abort the mission

This is your world
Your day and
Your time
It"s all right there 
For the taking8

If they knock you down 
Get back up 
Or you will prove them right
You weren't good enough
 My last resort has last resorts 
My last resorts are never done
Everyone's against me forget everyone 
Success is the best revenge that anyone
Could ever have and by quitting now 
You'll be remembered
As the dude who threw in the towel
Step up to the plate and rise to the occasion
Never be timid or intimidated
If you ain't the best 
You should be doing your best 
To be putting yourself
In the conversation 
If they're debating put it to rest 
Show them how you play when
You're put to the test
Make all of them haters say
Who would have guessed
Do W-O-R-K
Then jet

This is your world
Your day and
Your time
It"s all right there 
For the taking

All i's On Me

Ideas instantly infest imaginations
& it  could lead to inqueries
From imbusiles with iffy intelligence
There indecision will never get em
In position to be anything more
Than inconsistent, if that
Still irritated with my own irresponsibility
As an individual I intend to illustrate
Intellect that intercepts incorrect 
Information before it can get, in a head
Incapable of storing it, because once it's said
Then it's left, to your own interpratation
I hate when idiots impolitely interrupt
With insignificant stuff that sounds ignorant
Inconvienent to hear
And impossible to understand
And has been insincere since the infancy 
Of its inception, industries are built on if's
If you can do this for me,  your in
If not someone else will happily fill your seat
Kick rocks
Inch by inch i introduce my intentions
To wreck wreckless MC's
That immatate me way to much
And this can lead to serious injuries
In a sleep only insomniacs would dream of
Now isnt that intresting,
I intervine on impressive instrumentals 
In order to insert my two cents in
Justust because its inexpensive
All i's on me

I do what I want

I refuse to be told what to do
No I'm not taking any orders from you
Never
Have 
Never
Will
What I choose to pursue
Has got nothing to do with you 
Whatsoever!

Undefined

Anger can't control me
Haters can't insult me
Papers don't define me
And prayers can't console me
