A poem from the poetry series on Forestry.

I'm tired of people telling me I got potential. like when is this gon' manifest?
I really need a cheque, 
mama effortlessly drowning in debts.
show me the next step -
I'm willing to sweat.
escape the ghetto, it's a living threat.
poverty is experienced with regrets,
I ain't trying to be next.

with this talent that can shape the future of mankind. 
people think I'm losing my mind - 
I told them gold is hard to find.
now I'm battling with the confines of time
trying to remain divine,
in a world polluted with lies -
