Summary

I'm like an open book my emotions show on my face now, my eye brow raises at stupidity, but my feet stay planted to keep my place in the world. There's a sad story to everything shining, mine might be my immense growing pains in my body in odd places, my major memory lost, fading in and out of reality, consistent blood lost, silent cries for help in hopeless places. Man I need some miracles, my last poems were results of the symptoms kicking in full effect. Still I'm hear to have fun and live life.... "I'm just doing my thing if you know what I mean"

I'm like an open book my emotions show on my face now, my eye brow raises at stupidity, but my feet stay planted to keep my place in the world. There's a sad story to everything shining, mine might be my immense growing pains in my body in odd places, my major memory lost, fading in and out of reality, consistent blood lost, silent cries for help in hopeless places. Man I need some miracles, my last poems were results of the symptoms kicking in full effect. Still I'm hear to have fun and live life.... "I'm just doing my thing if you know what I mean".

Push me down when I'm standing tall

Cant recall certain things in familiar places

Last time I hit my head I fell hard

Thoughts of hate coming from every side

Still light a blunt til I'm a mile high

Looking at the full moon to find peace

The piece of me dropped along the way

So my old pal picked her up

Lost feelings of the kisses on the road

My state of mind is telling me I'm too cold

Yet my jacket says I'm too hot

Gasping for air to keep going

Tryna make it around these thrown stones

They hurt me daily with no regrets

Someone grab my hand quick

I think I'm falling into a cold pool of sweat

Feelings off feelings on my light switch is broken

No worries my night light still keeps me safe in my mind

I see you looking over here

But hey I'm just doing my thing if you know what I mean

I still don't like who I am

Im holding on for change in my life

Pain in my heart still strikes me

Wondering who called brother death

Blood keep following my spit like a mate

Then my head fills hollow from the emptiness

My Lost for lost and the careless shrugs made it worse

Still I smiled with the heart of a lion

But no the feelings get worse

No more tears I'm just prepared for the worst

They keep kicking my feelings around like a tin can

Blatant stares into the sky hoping for a miracle

I really try not to cry

Tired of the heart breaks I suffer from phonies

Still dreaming about burning coals

Woah why they threaten me with fantasies of pearly gates

But where's my moms story in the bible

Little did they know the deal

Hope for the best just to stay from the bench

Heart of a lion even when I bleed

Too light headed to remember the last time we shared

Maybe over the phone we could connect

I need another chance to get it right

But hey Im just doing my thing if you know what I mean
