Inside and Out


Love you on a daily

Love you like my

Life

depends on it

like you

would open

another door

to another level

that’s deeper

than the last

like if you

just whispered

in my left

Ear

I’ll feel it

all over my

Body

Inside and Out…

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

Not Everyone Can Go


I wish but deeply pray

that you could go with me on this journey

I don’t know if it is possible for you to ride with me

I know you’re not ready

I wish you were

I secretly pray that you were

But you can’t

You’re not ready to explore

Explore the depths of your own soul

You want to continue to look on the outside

For the light

The light that you already possess

You don’t want to look at your scars

And turn them into strength

You look at them as the flaws or weaknesses in you

Rather than look at how they make you strong

You play around with the truth

Told the same story so much

You believe it

I’m not asking you to pick at the scab

But to put a little ointment on it

So you can begin to heal

For real

Not the cover up that you place on top

And whenever asked

You get taken to a place where no one understands

Because you’re not ready

Ready to go on that journey

That journey to look deeper

To be deeper

To change your thoughts

You know that it can be lonely

But it’s necessary

You don’t want to open it

Peel back the layers so you can

Purify your soul

Eviction Chronicles on the table

I feel like I’m talking to myself.

I know I can’t teach them if I don’t know.

I gotta go deeper and remember what it feels like each time so I know.

It feels just like this here…Good to my soul to just be it. I knew I always wanted it but I wasn’t sure if I had it in me to do it.

I remember always seeing myself doing something when I was young but I could never see what I was doing. I looked happy though.

******************************************

You have to remember so you can tell them when it’s it and how you know it’s it.

When you just doing what you want to do, what you love to do, and it don’t cost you nothing to do it. That’s how you know you doing it.

My Mama seemed like she was really happy. I wonder if she was doing it.

When you can just do you and everyone sees you doing you and you don’t care if they see you. You know you doing what you’re supposed to be doing. No one could not deny that.
