living with past mistakes and keep making those mistakes like a block heaad

He thinks he's tough

and he can call my bluffs

he thinks im easy

he can take full control


I took daggers on the street

absorb them like a sponge

Trotting slowly along the paved way


I juggled the spears around in my head

Thinking about them consciously

I did not feel the wound n my heart


Nor did i let the rain drop

My sky isn't as dark as my motivations

Its  jus the canvas i have to deal with


I TOOK them to my head like an  arawak

No fight  was n my to respond

Misconceptions misread my intentions


and intentions are misled by non-inibitions

but i took them daggers with  me


I tried to nurture them

but i didn't care

i try to bury them

but they're here to stay


Like a crafty tool wielded by the devil himself

jus another struggle agaisnt me


Funny thing i don't seem to learn

the more i try to conquer

the more i burn


the less i live and the more die

All i want to do is live

.LIVE not Just To survive but to liveenjoy life
