OLD LINES

ON A YOUNG FACE

SHOW SIGNS OF LIFE

AT AN ACCELERATED PACE

DEFINE THE STRESS

OF THE STREETS

& A PENDING CASE

A MIND CAGED

IS A TERRIBLE WASTE

BLIND 2 CONSEQUENCE

1 MOVES IN HASTE

FIND A PATH

OR

LOOSE YOU’RE PLACE

TRACK YOUR TEARS

TRACE em BACK

2 THE TRAGEDY

BOTH POTENT

& RELEVANT

IN MY ANALOGY

OUR SHARED REALITY

LIVES IN MY MENTALITY

I TRADE PLACES

IN THE CASUALTY

AT THE HANDS

OF MY MANS

BRUTALITY

I KNOW

A BLACK MAN'S RAGE

AND HIS INSANITY

& ALL THE LOVE

BEHIND THE PAIN

THAT MAKES

HIM HATE

SO PASSIONATELY

I SO TRAGICALLY

PASSED THE PAIN

2 MY FAMILY

I HAD PLANNED

2 B THE BRIDGE

INSTEAD

WAS BANISHED

BECAUSE

BELONGING

MEANS U CAN B

REMOVED

& THE LOSS

DEFINITELY COST

2 MUCH

SUCH

THAT I

COMPREHEND

AN EXISTENCE

MORE PUNISHING

THAN DEATH

THAT IS WHY

I

LIKE U

NEVER REST

& THE RIDDLES

OF AN ACTIVE MIND

PUT COMPREHENSION

2 THE TEST

RETENTION WOULD B

BEST

IF LEARNING

DIDN’T SERVE

AND PROMOTE

ANOTHER'S DEATH

PLEASE MANIFEST

YOURSELF

INTO A NEW

EXISTENCE

LET THE PREMONITION

COME 2 RECOGNITION

THAT OUR SUM

IS AS GREAT

AS OUR PART

& OUR POSSIBILITY

IS SO MUCH

GREATER

THAN JUST BODY

THAT OUR SOUL

EXISTS ETERNALLY

& INFINITELY

& THOUGHT

IS AS GREAT

AS OUR GALAXY

SOMETIMES

THE BRIGHTEST MINDS

ARE BEHIND BARS

BLINDED

BECAUSE BRILLIANCE

MISDIRECTED

IS LETHAL

SO WE ATTEMPT

2 CONTAIN THEM

AS A WAY 

2 SAVE EM

FROM CRIMINAL MINDS

2 CRIMINAL GRINDS

BUT THE TRUTH

ABOUT

BEAUTIFUL MINDS

IS U CANT CAGE EM

ONLY DISENGAGE THEM

DID U EVER THINK

WORDS

WOULD B THE KEY

2 THE PRIZE

ALL U EVER IMAGINED

MAGNIFIED

THAT LANGUAGE

COULD BE YOUR

LIBERTY 

AND COMMUNICATION

WOULD SET U

FREE
