Believe and have trust
Just as metal attracts rust
Be careful bare-handed
When you rip Love from Lust.
One draws from the other
it nurtures and plays mother.
Each helps discover it’s brother.
The faithless’ hate gets smothered
And the faceless only see one another.
Smoldered fibers of indecency
Clings to anger seeded within society
Transformed by our collective singularity
It plucks their strings like a harpsichord
Lost and bored,
The dwelling of an insatiable sensation.
Hunger rises for inebriation.
It’s qualifiably insane but
I’m an empath and I steal your emotions like a thief.
When I stop to breathe, I get no relief,
It feels like I’m grinding my teeth,
But here I am, hitched to the wagon again.
Who knows if I’m drivin’ or being dragged behind.
Regardless I’m riding blind
I can’t seem to find my compass, my mind.
Point me in the direction I passed, to what I left behind
Morality and Passion are best when Defined.
Particularly when combined with Intelligence and Modesty.
A scoach of honesty
And a landfill of positivity.
We’ll call it hope.
You see the glass as half empty
I see it as something to ease my thirsty throat.
Beneath my tendencies and irrationality
I’m a genuine human being.
I always preach that I was raised by my Mama,
Chivalries what I teach,
No respect for the drama.
But I don’t beseech.
I understand we’re different and to each his own,
“Their” own, excuse me.
Ladies being chivalrous is still new and a little trippy,
But I’m down with the shift.
I love when you reach for the bill,
As if you don’t know, I won’t let you touch it.
That’s my business.
Call it old fashion, call it sexist, proper or arrogant.
I don’t care but
To do and follow what I was taught in my time;
Which is that women are divine,
Each one created to breed new life into masses dying.
Each one individual not to be disrespected or left crying.
I’ll leave it to say they were created for beauty,
To uplift the consciousness and faith of the community.
And ladies, you’ve taken it upon your duty
To prove to the world who you can be.
And let me tell you now, and I’ll say it loud enough for all of you to see,
You know I’m serious, I’m down on bended knee;
‘You don’t gotta prove anything to me,
Ladies, you were born perfect as far as I can see.
And fuck anyone who doesn’t Trust and Believe…
