Be about compassion and creativity and pray for peace in the Middle East

Nobody recognizes a true genius with full credit until their hero becomes deceased

The gunfire never seems to cease, I'm not reppin “thug life” or saying I’m “above Christ”

And although it feels like I’m going up against the world, I beat depression so thank God for LIFE

Keep a smile on my face continue to stay nice, thankful when I wake up in the morning

No feelings seeing bodies deceased in buildings the killings constantly got their mama’s mourning

Hurricanes and tidal waves keep seas storming, awaiting the next natural disaster

It’s like I’m a ghost on this Akron campus with laughter no comic relief I’m like Casper

Hear the gossip and chatter, the haters get madder every time that I rise on the ladder

Wipe the tears from your eyes, I’ll be here for guidance, keep your head up and don’t get sadder

Right now I’m in Life, the next is the here-after, everybody goes through their stages

But how can you know for sure who makes it to heaven preaching that only Jesus can save us?

They read my poems by the pages, they're anxious, awaiting what the next line holds

Yet they don’t comment, they’d rather vomit through words than control or save their soul

I don’t mean to be depictive, but I’m descriptive, my advice is to “leave out the specifics”

Pray, fast, and repent, don’t turn what's so simple into a form of irrational hieroglyphics

At this instance I pray for patience and that people feel my words to see I’m never faking

May Peace be upon all who hear and believes this, and in Arabic: As-Salamu `Alaykum
