peace, miguel pinero.

Perhaps tomorrow will be my today- Miguel Pinero

Proclaim existence to be acknowledged
Right this second not for delayed gain

Examine the wrinkles of the universe
To find a spot in outerspace that twinkles

Enough for the wishes to be granted
Seeking understanding from mystical enigma

Picture without proper megapixels
Won’t have fully defined features

So you might have to make up portions along
The path littered with past mistakes
That don’t have do overs giving brand new start

You been desperately craving
Braving a cold destiny to determine warm fate
Steaming heaping plates of all the food forbidden

Wisdom knowledge acquired through experience
Taxed because we tough turbulence on calm waters

Respond to every prayer in timely fashion
Scream at the skies with thug’s passionate fatal fury

Show at least the first step walking to meet halfway
Stay dry amongst God’s dandruff flakes

Make sure you are bundled up and insulated
Premeditated frustration leads to exaggerated actions
With off rhythm repercussions
To keep you grooving in tempo with temerity

Trust we have plenty of nothing to lose
Shifting the rubik’s cube to resemble
The planet stranded in the cosmos

Confined to a corner where your presence
Predicted a goner but your shadow is still breathing

Gain confidence from miniscule ability to survive
Distracted so easy started to zone out as you spoke

Awoke to light shining from the street
But you should run back inside
Towards gardens of edens
Resembling the backpark afterdark

Few summers when temperature was turned down
Slowly boiling for the random recommendations
To roast your reputation

In these days where greys are fading
So amazing to regenerate multiplication of movement

Particles diffused over wide spectrum
Only a selection can attain natural roots recovery
Searching through artifacts led to discovery of self
In midst of redemption

Act out your blessings today
Tomorrow seems so tempting


Public delinquent

Subliminal ignorance
Qualified nonsense by
Stupid followers

No consequence
Followed by insincere apology

Can’t be bothered
Insides starving
Ribs touching

Cool shit as crutch
What do you lust
Whom do you trust

Devils pie baked crust
Feel rush
100 % foolish terror

Clueless characters
Playing games of charades

Invisible mind critical
Conscious of being called criminal

Never subliminal
Spit directly at face
Please taste disrespect

What memories will you collect
Along pathetic path

Shattered dreams
Incomplete nightmares

Where responsibility
Dipsets on your daily value

Evil suffocates spirit
Never had a chance to breathe

Living life through thumb
Your dumbness
Starts to rub

Static electric shock
Can you even afford charges

No surprise
You can barely survive

Intelligent oxygen
Is in limited quantities

Gimmicks and impostors
Try to sell
You bridge streetlights
And a dash of truth

Only your experience
Can be living proof

say what you say

Play me a ballad

Asking what new
More like same ol blame soul

Remix your arrangement for a brand new composition
Switching your mission towards divine work

Rewards are stress no compensation
Except satisfaction

You tried to improve the planet
At same speed as yourself

Listening to breeze that hushes you
When you rudely attempt to make a labored point
Or extra emphasize on a corny punchline
To keep up lame conversation

Object is journey
Where we discuss shortcomings with revolutionary love
Forcing us to improve practice

No prepackaged answers can possibly address
Bigger pictures or minor details where devil hides
In shadows begging for a moment to distract you
From ever accomplishing your dreams

Returning to lame topics in your slumber
Don’t let your attitude be a bummer

Become buddies with thunder
Merely Chango giving you a shout to be on point

Clouds gonna be clapping
Sky ain’t gonna be laughing

Why you even pursue a passion
Easier to let frustration simmer below surface
Until ready to boil over
Then you might catch inspiration

Making individual sales in a distributor’s market
Saying look boi I ain’t always got time to spark it

You better make some moves on your better behalf
Homies will go half on a dub
But won’t go half on some grub

Insisting on what will submerge
Preferred method is high dosage on low voltage

Just enough slug to tickle it

Keep the respirator humming
Comfortable to get to drumming
Claiming we want higher learning
Never deserving another chance

GOD will provide many options only if you maintain
Perpetual motion towards manifestation of greater creation
No longer waiting straight taking what you will get

Can’t force anyone to think
But you can’t teach them to run with the first step

Metele mojong
Get down and give away all you have wasted

Bring it back to basics
Duck duck goose
Bruk bruk work to twerk with the truth
Red light green light 123
Familia dead like dreams take flight
Life ain’t always what it seems

Just because you give me daps doesn’t mean you my homie
Just because you surrounded by crew doesn’t mean you not lonely
Could ask me a million whatups still never know me

Zero times zero equals zero
Hero minus dinero make you nero

Burning up self immolation
Bathe in your own fickle fire

For lack of desire dedication subtracted
Who left waiting
Asalaam alakium

Satan tempts you with bacon
Perchance a quick conversation will bring some needed perspective
Selection from widescope of hope

Narrow your focus to conquer the hopeless
Conjure once upon a sublime happenstance

Dreams run in circles
Authentic virtue never virtual

Pinch yourself to feel pain if you don’t believe
If lying my body drop dead
With no spirit left in my spine

Dare to imagine
Half already happened other already occurred
No documenting morbid details with optimistic objectives

Spit inconspiciuos superflagrant beyond obvious
How dare you ignore blind hypocrisy with mocking laughter

Paint a picture of paradise after disaster
Detoriating faster than we could develop

Place lifetime in an envelope
See who is willing to receive

Don’t let doubt depreciate what you should appreciate
How far is distance between good and great

Please elevate your craft

Honor your blessed inspiration if you willing
Never too late to start living

Descanse En Poesia, Tato Laviera

I think in Spanish/I write in English
                                                -Tato Laviera

Como puedo decir distracted distances en multiple lenguas
Future looking more mezclao

Gente from different countries all speaking Spanglish fluent
Primo we need to organize to get that power

Barrio loco shorties got that sour
Loudpack sonido en stereo

Dimelo how vecinos turned blancos
Got that banco popular

Except we are far from popular democratic
Declarations of pan tierra libertad

Subsidized that state will make you a slave through barcode
Scanned and watched

Mucho bochinche and porqueria on the block
Don’t want to start a resurrection of Young Lords Party
Pa’lante only a documentary
Fuzzy VHS ripped DVD sold for a dollar on 125th

Shift in mentality marketed by prison industrial complex
Owning music industry murdering ears
Ponce massacre of minds sterilized souls

Estrellas imperceptible reflections
Calles chain your confidence

Constellations have muffled conversations
Giving you answers before side smirk
Break off in tonterias captures complete totality

Ghetto griot grito orality caserio newscasters
Replay lowlights of vicious pobreza cycle
Vital signs show high blood pressure
Bad cholesterol prediabetic disaster running faster

Happy hours at sweatbox social clubs
Looking for love in all the long faces
Race for independence speed walking marathon
Mananas depend on milagros migrating where
Isla dreams can be reborn from project penthouses
Skyline matches frame of mente molded by palabras

Motivating your jibaro heritage
Teaching proper lessons forever holding onto
Ancestral love sin compromisa sacred promise

Push next generation con fuerza siempre amor
Confianza en our belleza

Don’t let your son run away
Hold him tight against chest

Until he tells you
It’s time to walk

Learning to talk
Comes first with a set of demands

Divine can lift you vertical
Keep marching towards horizon
Enterprising your energy

Vida is endless entropy

Letting dust settle
Before rising to next level

Volume surrounds whispers echo
Streetlights give
Glamorous shine to glorious ghetto

Scream at the sky
While walking over a bridge

Learn from subconscious
Give you instructions how to live

Gratitude determines your aptitude
Can’t complain if you slacking to lean

Can hardly dream if you only accept reality
Worth can’t be equated with salary

Cut the calories
Trim fat from diet
Please try it don’t fight it

Protector when patrolling playgrounds
Possible peligros

Stuck in same exact spot
Only thing changing is scenery

Same rock and tree keep passing on loop
Hasty pursuits

Faith can make you faster
All those accomplishments might gas you

Agree with your affirmations
Cultivate creative

Don’t let propaganda alter your native

Hold love in your hands
Don’t let anyone ever take it
