When I do, I do it gradually
One drop at a time. So minor, smooth, discreet
A small unnoticeable particle
Sliding down my soft brown cheek.
From time to time I let it out
Too emotional to speak
Deep in my belly there’s a rupture
Finally I’ve sprung a leak.
Trying to keep my composure
Because its so important to me
Quietly I hide away
In hopes to contain my misery.
Its hopeless! I realize as I convulse,
In pain, I shake and my heart aches.
I try to hide my blood shot eyes.
My legs tremble and my heart breaks.
Secretly I wonder; will it ever cease?
But the truth of the matter is
I need this sweet release.
The pain, the joy, the excitement, the sadness
the love, the hate, the grief, the gladness
A rolling wave of relief
With an undercurrent of pain
There’s so much to lose
Yet much more to gain.

Don’t envy those when its lies they speak
Proof shine through the pudding, their mind is weak
Trust in God He shall always provide
Reap & sow, karma takes her ride
They move like snakes as they slither in the grass
They cast their stones, but their house is made of glass
Better than less than is the mindset they walk
Filter trick knowledge every time they talk
For every dirty deed gets written in the book
So no need to lose sleep over a half way crook
For what they do to you, well that’s on them
We all pay the price of admission when we reach the end
No matter what they say, continue in what’s right
Anything done in darkness shall always come to light
In the presence of your enemies your table is prepared
Get ready to feast, there’s nothing to fear
On their bellies they crawl, to eat dust they shall remain
My name is QueentheProphet, I’ve come to change the game.
