An Artist's Survival

My days are damnation, my nights are injections
I live my life, there's so much contradiction
I no longer know where's the distinction
Between reality and the so called fiction
Wish I see the way for the right action
To be done but there is no direction
There's just too much friction, and a growing tension
They've ceased my motion, I'm stuck in depression
I try to move on, but there's so much deception
Everywhere I turn, there's a reflection
Everything can pass but seems I'm an exception
It's like having detention in another dimension
I want no extension; I want to depart...
I need to find a way to fate outsmart
You can shatter me apart
Take away my heart
Toss me back to the start
Leave me far from smart
But keep me my art...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It was supposed to be my first rap verse, but turned out unfit for rap... So I changed a bit in the last three lines and made it as just a poem.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
