Die Trying


Die Trying

Lost in the struggle and I’m not lying
Plan to be immortal and I’ll die trying
Continue to cast aside the words that I’m saying
I’m fizzing off the top like a soda pop and I’m not playing
Is it a blessing or a curse
Silver tongue, I always find the words
To let the stress in my mind disperse
But the truth hurts
And I always end up with my dick in the dirt
It’s so hard being trapped in my mind
Feel locked away and committed no crime
I just want my time to shine
Burning out like a lighting bug in a jar
Singing inside but the noise don’t carry to far
Busting my balls inside sound proof glass walls
Resorting to words of wisdoms in bathroom stalls
I’m a puppet on a string swinging like a ding a ling
People barley notice and all I want to do is scream
Trying to live My American dream
But what I am is not what you see
It’s hard to make them scream and holler
In a day and age where people will do anything for a dollar
And I can’t leave my yard like I’m wearing a shock collar
I don’t want to take over the world! Just don’t want it to forget me
Walked through too much mud, shed too much blood and dealt with too much tragedy
I won’t be forsaken and cast aside
I refuse to sit back and just wait to die
This uphill battle I will continue and try
And when someone says luke is talented they can’t deny
As long as I have a beat in my heart and a sparkle in my eye
You can bet that my brain is working overtime
I am a poet and a content creator
I am a comic book writer and freak of nature
I am the storm that’s rolling in
2018 is the year of the djinn
