State Of Being - Poem by K 'Exodus' Taynor

At times i can't speak~at times i can't think
Lost in the mind where times have paralized the State of Being -

We find words of the soul painted on walls with graffiti ~
but in the ghetto there's only so much air 2 breathe
and behold on yo own force 2 find evil deeds ~
cause everyday sloth's the thought in this society.
It's a burden maybe a pain - we have 2 share with love so that we may
overcome and concur, before the sands run out and families fall~
the world is ours or so we're told~ so what is it they tell our foes?

The meek shall inherit the earth and one day our story will be spoken by those
who'll view us savage~ a generation doomed 2 relive our woes - 2 be damned.
It's a shame we didn't learn be4 our time came.
They may say, that insanity bears resemblance 2 our pain~
Sometimes i can't speak~sometimes i can't think.

I know it's natural 2 fear the unknown but when we no longer heed the fortold -
that is when we cease 2 grow
Prepare for the war, prepare 4 the bombs 2 blow -
130 years promised, and that my friends feeds the soul worth growing old -
Shall i b bold~ shall i cree, we may destroy the faith 4 the heaven that we seek
At times i can't speak, at times i can't think ~
is 2 be lost in the mind where times have paralized the State of Being.
