Pressure and time is all it takes before the mind breaks…I don’t watch the clock, I like to get to it for times’ sake…No room, can’t move I’m stuck in this confined space…Purgatory…No grace…Can’t get no kind of an answer they won’t let me through the pearly gates…
We all got a date but I’m showing up late…So whether I go up or down I got a bone to pick with this earth place…I’ve been gritting and grinding but never to get ahead It’s always been to dig myself out a hole or some jam I had to escape…I wish I could wipe the slate…I played my play…Took what I was gone take and the rest I had to face…We all different but it’s the basics mans case…We as a people treat stress and problems like they’re genetic traits…O don’t mind me I just come this way…I don’t buy it…Work at it day by day and a change is gonna come I’m on that Sam Cooke diet…
I got the truth early on It just took me twenty plus years to apply it…Knowledge is power…It help me fight my battles so I keep it with me…Side kick…What I don’t know I boss…Head thick…I’m gon find a way like its hiding from me…No bullshit…I use to pull quick…Until it prove sick…Now I’m more methodical and attack it like I’m Riddick…All I know is go…Go and get it and get it and get it…I can finally accept no…No limits, no limits, no limits…
I know you’ve heard every gimmick or trick…Greasy talk that sound real slick…I’m gon give it to you straight…The strong survive and the weak get ate…We’ve been working hard on equality trying to get everybody a plate but until that happen you better win this rat race…So all I do is chase…All I do is chase until I got a stack of Ben Franklins in my face…All I do is chase…Lion hearted so I do it for my pride…I ain’t stopping no breaks on my ride…Past and future collide cause from the womb to the tomb its always an eye for an eye……

They say God breathed breath into the body and gave life…In my eye that just ain’t quite right…It was about twelve noon when I came through my mother’s womb into the light…Not fully aware yet to form a conscience my mother held me close to chest and through her eyes shared with me my first taste of life…
When I couldn’t do for self she broke bread and fed me…She provided…She provided nourishment that feeds the soul…She passed on to me her internal glow…At birth I was considered to be one of the worlds beautiful creations perfect in every way…Exact replica of my mother is all I have to say…Without her there would be no me…Without her it wouldn’t be us three…She taught me right from wrong…She taught me to have strength and fight and to always hold on… “We give out…We don’t give up” is the motto for the Jones…The list goes on…
My Mama didn’t stop short she shared all of her compassion…Now I got half my daddy genes…Short temper…I love to kick some ***…Respect…Cause she shared all her intellect…It did take till my thirties for me to look back and dislike all my disrespect…And yes I’m gon say it…My Mama is the best…Flesh of my flesh…Me and my Mama bond goes deep…Her love is powerful and of the purest form, unconditional nothing can compete…
From the beauty in her eyes she was able to see past the ugly in me…She listened…Her ears absorb turmoil and her inner peace always calmed the beast…I say this with grief…She SACRAIFICED ALL so her kids could elevate out these streets and through her belief we did just that but we didn’t remain close so there’s still some open promises to keep…Mama please hear me when I speak…What you instilled in me runs deep…I keep it with me when I wake up and take it with me to sleep…I understand and you’re not alone…I love you…We’re tied together forever…Understand that I am with you now and you’re gonna be with me when you’re gone…….
