Emotion

I lost my life
when I found my soul
lying desperately 
in the puddle of my disbelief
I lost my soul
when I found my life
lying confidently
in a pool of hatred
twisted
the shady nights
of this shady town
torment my mere existence
life with me
or without my plea
wouldn't make any difference
Transformation
Realization hits, an epiphany
those who love
can't distance me
can't live without me
I am important
I am meaningful
I do have definition
I guess I was looking
4 recognition
but aren't we all?
I was confused,
thinking my life
meant shit
when . In reality
I am the shit
Reality hits
you no further 
than everybody else
hanging up your dreams
on social media's shelves
staring at the vision
of having more
sick and tired
of living so poor
I want more

Find you

The soul is yours
your mind, you own
your legacy, you create
Life is a natural disaster
waiting to happen
one day, things crash down
prepare for the tragedy
by finding comfort 
and peace within
your safety
your reservoir
your sanctuary 
is within yourself
comprise your making
of what you love
of what you'd give
of what you'd find peace in
Life's a wave
waiting patiently for you
to ride it nice and high
before the sharks
of hate attempt to eat your peace
and devour your soul
your protection against this evil,
finding you
when you know you,
when you find you
when you love you,
nothing
can break you
xcept you
when it seems as though
the world is crashing down
the walls are closing in
the darkness is getting darker,
turn to who you are
never leave yourself abandoned
and subjected to misuse
misguiding
and soul poisoning
Find you man

My life's a lie
this poem isn't real
nothing is

Wrapped in blankets
of lies
and fairy tales
compounding every detail of my life

This confession isn't truthful
in fact, I'm genuine
happy
joyous
I'm real

Never call me fake,
only when I'm writing
That's now
this isn't real

As my fingers punch the keys
of this laptop
and my thoughts shoot
onto this screen
you'll realize 
I'm a fib
lies, are what my words mean

I'm not writing,
someone else is
It's Nate,
but not the Nate you know
this Nate, isn't real
only when he's writing

I guess he's real
living two lives
both consisting of good and bad
happy and sad
misery, he's glad

Escape

Should we escape?
things will only get worse
Blessed beyond thought
still wrapped in this curse

placed in the tree

with no roots to show

guess that means

we’ll both never grow

not individually, but

speaking as one

we both are just sums

Escaping you,

could be the answer

happiness is absent

she doesn’t answer

you’re like¬†love

yet I’m eager to leave

wanted the escape,
do u hear my plead
this thing is now done,
release from the hold
its easier to escape
when they’re with you
I’m told

 

Empty Highway

canvas-prints-stretched-framed-fine-art-giclee-artwork-for-wall-decor-route-usa-travel-transportation-clouds

Cars, many

drivers, a few

angry, just about all

at peace, just you

donut wheel driving

thoughtful thought thinker

the hatred they build up,

couldn’t be any steeper

I’m at peace on this empty highway

I see beauty

they see shit

I smell blessings

they have a fit

on this empty highway

the anger they display

doesn’t fit in anywhere

the highway may be empty

but it’s filled¬†with the past and present

both bad and good

grief and joy

I’m at peace

I’m at peace

 

PERIOD. HAP

the hoods an amusement park
no fun and joy though
no rides, no laughter
just loud quiet chatter
gunshots that'll rattle
a building
shake a mountain
wake a whole hood of idiots
who live to die full of bullets
and pride
ain't no ride
ain't no standing in line
there is no wait,
you want a hood ride?
just talk shit straight
but wait
you live this life?
where words are outside your window
through the night
you can hear the plot,
then it's quiet
next the shit talking
then the riot
try it,
u a tough guy right?
last a night
and gain some might
being trapped in this amusement park
ain't no fun
just content 
through nappy heads
and fatherless sons
ain't no sun
even on a hot day,
the atmosphere fucked up
it's dark
shadows in the sky
welfare
screaming
pants saggin
baby's start to cry
this amusement park, 
don't cost no money
just your life eventually
can u pay that honey?
ain't much to the niggas 
out here
who smoke rocks
drank pop
hug blocks
& hate cops
truth is, no families
want to be here
the hood don't change
neither do the people in it
ain't no grinnin
this serious
hood amusement parks 
ain't no joke
period
