Venting (Poem)

I’m stuck in my mind cause I seen a situation like this

So I kinda already know

Should I just drop the book and see how things go

Or hold it and see my dreams fold

 

This world is so cold

And I’m just trying to let you know

That your blood could be the coldest people you’ll ever know

Had to learn the hard way

 

I put my passion into it and watched it get shot down

I heard life come full circle, so I’m just waiting for my time to come back around

They say don’t trust friends and just let your blood surround

I’m feeling like a orphan because my friends seems like the only ones that’s down

 

Sometimes I wonder why I even speak

All they seem to hear is the depression

Don’t even notice I’m giving the guidelines to applying the pressure

Maybe I’m just the only one who gets the gesture

Never mind I can’t really worry about the backlash I’m just improving the texture

 

I’m just so mixed up in this mixture

Just worried about who down for the adventure

When I need to just go on the adventure

 

They will follow soon as the bills start falling

And the girls start drooling

I’m just flowing so my mind starts fooling

 

I’m just venting about a book that probably won’t see the light of day

Because I worry too much about who got faith in me

I just want people to learn from my mistakes

 

Never depend on others

Just work till the day you get discovered

If only I can get that through my thick skull

If only I knew my worth

 

I would have never been on that turf

I would have been right here getting everything I deserve

My own momma and poppa broke me down to my knees

I wish I didn’t take that plea

 

I wish I knew who I can be

I wish they knew who I can be

And that’s me

I should have fought to be me

 

I’m just venting about some days I’ll probably never see again

Times change

People change

Don’t be chained

To your past

I’m just venting about my past
