Thoughts of an MC

i don't like the main and i don't like the stream
i just like being me keeping my own beam
beam of light so I'm never walking in the dark even in the night
don't let shadows of the past capture me
if i did that'd be a catastrophe
i don't want my life to be a disaster see
now i ask the essence of hip hop to take over my shoulder
especially when the wind grows colder
cause every day I'm living I'm becoming older
i don't know how long ill last
or if the next church's mass will be for me
a funeral for a dead MC

    No matter who tries to sip from your drink, make sure it's always "half-full". Deep & intense, Tanner.
