I was a young man on a confused journey.
Lost inside my own world.
Misled to a path that never existed.
A child in the streets who grew up to be a man with no vision
and no presence.
Outside, my world appeared bright,
but inside my heart was full of pouring rain.
The only love I ever knew was the streets.
Until it divorced me,
leaving me all alone.
I became a victim in my own savage game.
Untamed, until I was forced into locks and chains.
But never will I cry.

Everyday is now a blessing.
By losing, a winner I became.
It took me a long time to see it when all
I had to do was just open my eyes.

This Superstitious Relationship

By D.W.

I can’t understand why, but I love you

You show me signs on every corner

But still I adore

My relationship at this point, has fallen out the door

It’s this unconditional satisfaction you bring me with joy

I wanna understand more

Should I call you sweetheart or my sweet mistress?

I love the high yellowish streaks with the touch of black

You should be concrete the way you got me going so hard

My girlfriend and family don’t want to understand

My reasons of being with you

So they pray for me

Like a junkie for some crack, I find myself going back

Unable to live without you

Is it the way the lights glow on us?

You got me hypnotized

But should I desire your presence?

And lose my girlfriend and family

I find myself superstitious in love

So deeply in love

The fame equals pain

The name equals hate

The life equals death

Are we blind to the facts?

She sees us ball

She sees us fall

You can call her “The Streets”

Our down fall

The Game

M.D.

The game don’t change.

No matter if they are

new players or the same.

It a shame

how us young people play the game

and don’t realize how much

hurt we are costing all moms.

Can’t you see the

streets ain’t no where to be.

Because at the end of

the day the block goin’ be there

you might NOT
