  My true Meaning

The true meaning of self-motivation, wisdom and knowing learned at the crawling age of an abused mind
Taught to be aware of those who show love
Trusting those who only exist in my mind
Keeping private thoughts hidden
Seen by those who are just the same
Pain showing in oneís eyes
Grounded to the earths sorrow
A black pearl
Rate in its exquisite form
One wanting to be loved
Living a dangerous street life cuz itís the only security known
Wishing for Hollywood
Receiving Harlem
Wisdom trying to be taught to others
Others moving my lessons learned of life forward
Teaching me hatred for my kind and others
Knowing I am still getting mine
Determined to rise the ladder up out the ghetto
Physical pain of art
Scripting life on skin pages
Molested with the intent of torture
Full of misgivings and doubts
