I didn’t want to settle down because of my lively personality

But I now dream of settling down, is it because of lack of activity?

Been too relaxed, expecting it all to be handed on a plate

I’m not no Brad Pitt or Denzel

I’ll look like a Mali child at this rate.


Think you’re something special?

Toned up, sweet smile

If you think that’s all you need

That it’s enough, you’re in denial.


I want something meaningful

Something to call mine

Mindless, senseless, lustful desires only feel more pathetic in time.


But you become addicted, I become addicted

And it’s all around us, temptations lurking around every corner

You become experienced but innocence is fading

Like a drug, it’ll become a disaster


When you see it clearly, some people rarely

You won’t recognize your reflection

But you won’t see it in an instance

This one’s a creeper; it’ll miss your detection.

    Fascinating is so typical of you, with your delightful, dangerous, boyish touch of rebellion, and then manly tone of responsible reflection....I quite enjoyed it....seems to so perfectly express the mindset from immoral toward right.
