I Want To Know Them


I want to know them

I want to talk to them more

not everyday but enough

enough to know them

Know who they are

Not just their names

And what they do

but I want to know what they like

I want to hear them

I want to know the people that I love

deeper

I stopped myself for a moment

I was thinking how do you love them

And you don’t know them

I don’t think you have to know someone to love them

it takes more effort to “like” them

You gotta get to know them

find out who they are

you have to keep going

getting deeper

with each one of them

you want to know

know them like you’d beg for someone

to know you

I ain’t gonna fake the funk

I don’t know them

I love them

love them all a lot

But I don’t know them

I don’t know if this is better

I guess I’ll find out

Sometimes It’s Hard To Watch


My Eye

 

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

But I gotta keep my eyes open

In case you fall

I can pick you up

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

But I gotta keep my eyes open

Even when you seem to self-destruct

Sometimes it’s hard to watch

Your words come across the screen

Trying to find your own way

But I tell myself that you’re just letting off steam

But still, it’s hard to watch

Even though I know that you’re destined to be King

It’s still hard to watch

Sometimes my hands beg to cover my eyes

But right before they do

I get a wonderful surprise

I realize that no matter what

I want to see it all

So when you’re King

I can remind you how you rose & did not fall
