Sideways Eight Entertainment Presents:
“For What It’s Worth”
*Read, Respirate, Repeat*
Thanks to...the first born of Mary,/
My cranial sanctuary’s often plagued by confusion/
I can’t help but rhyme, in times of seclusion/
By choosin’ my path, I’ve made this conclusion.../
I must suffer pain, to meet holy fusion./
The dream cast illusions, my thoughts often ponder,/
Flip gleeful moods, from what was to somber/
As if my brain wanders. Says “Peace!” ...A goner, /
The void realm of hope, expands beyond yonder./
But he who can’t dream, is one without purpose.../
Almost like idle clowns in an on-going circus/
Through schooling and churches, my Lord’s offered insight/
And now what was dark, evolves into thin light/
Ill bars, this pen writes, blood fused with ink/
A chink in this ship, could cause it to sink.../
I link words with heart, emotions can think/
To work out the kinks, is my ultimate conquest/
Give praise to upstairs, for in me, The Gods blessed,/
Far from a “Bronze Best”, but I’m not the master/
He who thinks this surely’s in for disaster/
The kids who get plastered, embrace these surprises/
A downfall SO big. Each ones own demise is./
Wood work, but no stone.../
Dick-hard, but no bone, opp side; a snowcone/
Entered, my flow zone.../
Minor forces of hate. Wacky traits, all can go home./
Rap fast or slow tone, commence execution/
To spill what I’ve spawned, is my only solution/
Paid restitution, sleepless nights equal dues/
It’s the hard way in fact, I continue to choose./
We are equal from birth. Nothing here out is granted/
But the fields we play on, some say, may be slanted/
It’s His name I’ve chanted, the seed which was planted/
Has grown into life, a human enchanted!.../
No Questions. Just Answers.

"...death to the ILLUMINATIon...I keep hope a lie 'cuz it's over for you!"

"Dick-hard, but no bone, opp side; a snowcone/"...lol...my point?....i agree with flatliner...my opp side would of been a double-scoop...but that wouldnt rhymed huh?...regardless...i dig posts like this...nice drop...one cousin
I liked this. It was kinda poetic, but I'm kinda lost, too. (That's what great about introspection though. It caters to self interpretation... which everyone should practice often). But yO, where's that one post with SaRah_MoNiaL?... Did I miss it, yO???
Keep up, kid...

Then it served its purpose my man
Actually this piece was just about my mind, and what affects it...ex. All the God references, and wack herbs frontin'. It was just some off the head scripture I felt like droppin' to see if anyone could catch most of the deeper points in there.
Follow my instructions at the beginning of the post dog. The Three R's!
Yo Crimson, I wasnt so sure what this was about. can you explain?
