I’m lost, floating on a cloud of confusion, drifting like ash
sifting through my emotions, fearing intruding thoughts of my past
shifting gears like manual transmission trying to keep up with life
transmitting negative energy, sharp remarks cutting like a knife
I have no time for games, only video and board
my mind was designed I think to serve the Lord
but I’m not doing it, so I’m not serving my purpose
concealing my feelings under women, weed and loud curses
now I feel kinda bad when I visit churches
I don't rehearse this, just thoughts bubbling up to the surface
I can't suppress the regret that I made a few bad decisions
I cut off a lot of my dreams with surgical precision
now I’m in a labyrinth with no quick exit
if only I’d used some common sense, I would have less stress
life throws lots of curve balls, aye batter batter...swing!
and I still haven't hit a homer, in spite of everything
I haven't struck out yet, but I only have a couple left
my lucks running out, all I have left is my son and my health
my trust snuck out, I barely trust myself...
I’m a poor man but have plenty of un-materialistic wealth
I invest in the best thing possible, it has no monetary worth
truth, and that makes me one of the richest men on earth
I search and search but not positive what im looking for
I’m stuck in a rut, hoping the future has positivity in store
I’m hungry for love and thirsting for truth
I’m fighting against conformity with nail and tooth
I feel the weight of the world like atlas
if I can only stay strong, it won't be too long before I’m past this

true in God...

holding up the world like atlas
i felt like i took a lot if ish lying down
like a mattress
or bedspring
i don't have plans to dominate the world like ming
i just want something
of me to be left
when i'm gone with the wind
my spirit is to strong to let them
but its hard trying to get
the **** out of this life of sin

tight true scribing man...i felt those...

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
If the present Kuzma saw the then Kuzma, he would say: Boy, grit your teeth. In twenty years everything will be wrong!
