In The Depths Of Solitude - Poem by Tupac Shakur

i exist in the depths of solitude
pondering my true goal
trying 2 find peace of mind
and still preserve my soul
constantly yearning 2 be accepted
and from all receive respect
never comprising but sometimes risky
and that is my only regret
a young heart with an old soul
how can there be peace
how can i be in the depths of solitude
when there r 2 inside of me
this duo within me causes
the perfect oppurtunity
2 learn and live twice as fast
as those who accept simplicity

    I remember reciting this poem at school it was in 1999. You could cut the silence that was in the class. Powerful words. (Report) Reply

    Truly remarkable talent to get across the inner meaning in a touching and memorable way. So much to say, so little time to say it. I hope so many people get to read this and realise the genius and emotion of it. SG (Report) Reply

    Very inspirational poem that explains the true feeling I go through as a young adult in these stressful and confusing times. William Walker is a pure example of...a player hater...there I said it. LOL (Report) Reply

    William Walker you are just like Delores Tucker,
    Wanna know what stuff Pac said about Delores?

    '...Delores Tucker youse a motherfucker
    Instead of tryin to help a nigga you destroy a brother
    Worse than the others - Bill Clinton, Mr. Bob Dole
    You're too old to understand the way the game is told
    You're lame so I gotta hit you with the hot facts'...

    Tu Pac is a lost prophet whom we all know has risen from the dead. His words live on his lyrics inspire us, the words that are so harshly spoken..make us truely see, that there is no need to beat around the bush, lets all us get on with speaking the truth, being real and being exposed, Tu Pac 4eva (Report) Reply
