I sit here wondering how, over the years, I’ve changed
Angers all but consumed me, now its bottle rage
Lust has twisted my brain and clouded my perception
The mask and reality fused, my lifelong deception
The way I used to care is floating away from me. I’m seemingly
A man without emotions or cares, living dreamingly
Girls, drugs, alcohol, all whipped me. I was a slave to intoxications
My mind still shines through, but the dark still battles. Self-altercations
In my head. My head now a reel for the world’s movie
I am stuck at this…fork in the road, desperate for something to move me
My strength increases, and I must catalyze the reaction
Start a movement, a revolution, be the main attraction
But first and foremost I must establish reality
Life’s not a game, but we still suffer Fatalities
So to the world, I’ll hold my unorthodox shroud
I’ll be my own drummer to march to, hell a whole band. Loud
Louder than all the ignorant
See how I’ve grown? I’ve concocted my own destiny.
After a year’s time, I’ve decided to be myself
But I still slip and tumble through delusions of grandeur and wealth
I still need to discover just who I am before I continue
I need something new, maybe a change in venue
Ready to matriculate and show the world my face
Get passed all this, shock them, and see if they keep pace
I’m prepared to change the world, every action a necessity
So I implore you to come, join, and bask in success with me…
