smile through your mask

Stress rap
Eff dat
Off wack
Wrong side of tracks

No deception
Deeper perspective

No solution to pollution


Prevention of passion

Infinite forever lasting
Reverse peak

On path
Past power

Predictable lyrical spiritual
Minimal material
Serial serious
Daily delirious

Meticulous misfit
Particular pinprick
Skin sizzle nervous system active

All pieces gone in chess
Left with pawn

Pretended puzzle doesn’t exist
Consistent constant regularity
Opposite polarity
Magnetic qualities

Attraction fatal without faith
Spatial action disoriented
Treble without bass

What place is safe
When you always feel chased

What parts of world
Converge on your behalf

Some whole will make you
Crawl outta your own mess

Use all your strength
Believe you been blessed

how broke can you get

How painful will be this stretch

Can you even touch your toes
Without dropping dollars

Deluge still parched
Mainly concerned
How you continue to march

Higher plateau
Seeking meaning
Of rugged terrain on cracks
In concrete

Chiropractors massage
The Bubbles on your back
Well fed with salty peanuts
Throwing shells at poor attempts

Redefining renaissance
Moved beyond block benches
Need comfortable shelter

Reaper attached to shoulders
Like shadows is cape fear

Couldn’t never afford to get your float on
Still stuck searching for answers already heard

Word was build opposite of destroy
Vintage never crumble symptoms jumbled

Ill mind manifest limited growth
Experiences unanalyzed just pushed through
To get to next emptiness digested

Breaking wind

Focus blink
Closer to brink

Feeling the need to scream at the sky

Gather round huddle by the circle benches
In the big park

Appreciate your poem
Pardon who got it to spark

Inquiry doesn’t mean you at the inquisition
Switch your disposition

Why are you still shivering while you scribbling
Must acknowledge the flesh while still in physical

From your statis basis of your displacement
Discovering what is readily apparent
Disparaging your talents prophetic status

Allow your strength to prosper
Analyze how much your life is worth
Do you need all that pain to search

Brutal honesty from stop and frisk at least double digits
Memories vivid why soul still frigid
Tame the wild beast so they won’t conquer your pride

How have you given your total devotion
To why you are still alive

Confront what’s behind the mask
Beneath the skin

Internal conflict obsession with untamed fire
So much desire lacking ambition

Couldn’t make the main attraction
Fashionably wrinkly late

Hold hate and regret for moves you haven’t made

Draw energy from those still living
Resurrection ancestral creation to thrive

Inside beef promoted from external evil
Humanity bruised like bitter sunshine

Angrier night subdued by inhibitions
Master connected visions of illustrious rhythm

Comprehending the silence keeping you trapped
In Pandora box system
Dare you to open your eyes
Might realize subtle shift divine blessings

Avoid anxious accidents sidestepping tragedy
Like father’s retired jersey
In shutdown sweatbox salsa clubs

Open sesame possibility
Rewrapping rainbows flavored
With delicious dreams and wonderful wishes
Inside perpetual pot of gold

Cold quickly motivates
Each moment to articulate grander fate

Eventual direction wider perspective
For actual importance

Given bufetazo just for blinking
Imagining alternative democracy
Radical ends to savage means

Godly insight
Connecting the dots no more time to lean

Release the cork captured by the lump in your jaw
Chest congested Corazon
Release blood freely stimulated remedies regenerated

Hopeful optimism
Y NOT be great
Morales beyond worthy



Word up Son AhA I sees I says

How do we reorganize our reason
What is the purpose behind being pointless

When you see the example
What does it mean if you don’t learn
From the mistake that made all the difference

Transition from being terrorized

Will you be properly eulogized
Entirely accurate down to the tall tales

Understand there is no need for the loathing
Creating your own pain difficult as it is to picture

Refocus the energy towards something more positive
Spend time covering the classics

Life is fantastic unrealistic when you choose
To live in the fog

Wanting studio as opposed to live concert
Of silent chorus
Echo factor causing reverberation across the room

How does the inspiration flow so easy
As you about to slide off into hasty desire

Might have to partake in multiple conversations
Just to believe what you have forgotten

Light too much flickering
For you to fall asleep comfortably

Mental aches for soul to awake
Trying to find right path for destiny to shine

Message should bleed through page
Onto the next surface you need to scratch

Beyond what’s below bonding with your blood

Last train home stalling to shuttle
How lucky is your shuffle
Switch 180 degrees toss light up what’s legal
Break in case of emergency blessings

Behind shattered glass reveals better days
Where you won’t have to pace back and forth
Causing concern to no one else

Can you enjoy yourself enough

Entertainment should be earned smiles
After dancing with disaster did demonic 2 step
To decondition your devilish programming

Infected with itch keep twisting the night away

Coal brick oven toasted confidence
Down to crust
Confessing beyond margin in stretched stressed journal

Spirits scream to be on point
Dreams determined to achieve
No doubt in face of adversity

Telling death and evil to march like lluvia
And don’t ever tell me anything opposite

Of my inevitable entropy
Towards living heavenly

peace to terryl talley. rest in power hulk

Rest in Power Hulk*Star
for Terryl Talley

What was your evolution to big homie
From lil holding work in the brib

Letting my man from the Rock slide
With 5 for 40 first time I ever seen that scheme

True hustlers speak in coded language
So the outside world will misunderstand you

Completely crazy your born day before mines
Two different lifetimes both searching for
Higher levels so you won’t be distorted

6 shots to the throat won’t ever silence
Your loud memories like when I came back
From Cabo hit you with that Cuervo chocolate

Block was on fire couldn’t burn anywhere low
So we built on the bricks returning from paradise
To the humid temperatures of comfortable oppression

What lessons do we learn from each other’s pain

Wanted to converse with your bloodstain
But homicide was watching

What could you have been plotting
Creeping to put up heat too late

Crimestoppers trying to comb the streets for clues
The hood already knows but won’t whisper

Why did you let the world
Like you more when you angry

Just a cooled up scientist
Exchanging killing time for one day not having

Any left except when we remember you
As a bugged out goldfish finger eager
To pop trouble bubbles to keep breathing
As long as the ghetto air allows you to
Believe your own bulletproof fantasies

All due respect for times served substance
Right in concrete jungles soon to crumble

Until the sunshine reveals caution signs
For places we dare not enter

But did trespass because we thought we be forgiven
In those moments forever living never thinking
Of who lurks in shadows behind us

Walks around spots we chilled only reminders
Of earth we been on but where we need
To grow get weight up be healthy
Be wealthy in mind body spirit

Never fear the future
More prosperous than teardrops
And proclamations of peace but plotting getback
At sessions after uninvited wake

You went with your eyes open
Teeth clenched saying

I’m aight
I will fight

Look at you kid even preaching power
As soul takes flight

But inhaling that last breath
Even thugs are scared of that sight
