Laughing At My Funny Joke Called "Being Broke"


Never Had a life to live

'Til I found myself with all of you

Then I lost contact with y'all

Now this is how it is

Boredom rushing thru my veins

And I can't escape the days

Of this empty voidful time

That never ends in rhyme

Wanna close the book sometimes

But the songs come on for more

Than to sit

And listen

Oh, it hurts

To not write

Never gonna leave my pen

Nor my book of time

Ev'ryday I'm "honey, cut"

And bored out of mind

Emagining life

Somewhere else in "space, and time"

Somehere where my dreams can play

And starting over the very same way

I hold my breath

__'cause only pain will teach me more

I'm losing my touch

As a porno artist

I like telling feelings instead

Feelings like, my ripped up heart

__from y'all

I won't feel ease

When this world is chasing me

Just to fall upon me

Crushing my heart

I'm doomed with none of you

Being near me

Watching over my good health

Away fromn the maze

Of wandering streets

Looking to feel O.K.

Never again will I

Trust on hope of

Finding a homie

Out there fo' me

I swallow the memories

Of all of us doing nothing

Look forward to the times

Of all of us raving

I'm so poor in debt

I don't even see that happening


'Least not anytime soon

For I am a fool

When it comes to my wallet

When money comes

I could never keep it

But just to see

Even one homie

I have to learn

To save it

"Wait for me"

To have money

It would be for the best

That our friendships our tested

With time
