POETIC 1991 (Perris)

Say it like this
Nomore pain
no more hurt
You see I’ve been lost without a turn
So I turned into a man without no peace
A man
Just running from faith like he's the first To write and read
brown skin
Black completion
I deserve this life
My reflection
some real shit to say
I've been I have more things to change
Do you
Ever feel sick
Do you
ever scream out loud
I Hurd you
Screaming like your life has been cursed
Dear lord
why me why me
I don’t Want no more tears
They say men don’t cry but that’s a fairytale
Do you
Really understand what I mean
I’m talking about real love
The love I used to have but now it’s just
Pain and heartache
Emotional curses
Mixed with love
With a splash of lust
My time is close
My mind is confused
My body feels weak
But I'm not any different
From you to then
You to me
Here is my truth
See my eyes open after the night is through
