Mama why aren’t you here ?
Why don’t you see my struggles ?
Why does pride control your actions ?
Why does life feel so bitter sweet ?
Once I left my sorry excuse for a home.
I found Confusion, Clearity, then Confusion.
I didn’t ask for all that I have on my plate.
Where ever it come from.
Just keep dishing the trails.
I have fast reactions.
I made it this far.
I just hate to move alone.
But, I have too.

“I swear the earth shall surely be complete to him or her who shall be complete,
The earth remains jagged and broken only to him or her who remains jagged and broken.

There can be no theory of any account unless it corroborate the theory of the earth,
No politics, song, religion, behavior or what not,
Is of account, unless it compare with the amplitude of the earth,
Unless it face the exactness, vitality, impartiality, the rectitude of the earth.”
