I put my bag onto my back that seems to bear
the weight of ten cinderblocks-
each for the hour I have yet to just relax,
or eat a cool juicy slice of watermelon
to chill my blistered blazing body.
The sun’s rays pierce my tired eyes
that haven’t had the chance to moisten
my pressured pulsing pupils.
Another long day completed as my worn out calluses
trot along the simmering sidewalk.
At this moment, at the peak of
the day on a humid July afternoon
it feels as if I am walking in Hell itself;
but I wouldn’t trade it in for anything.
I know that I must go through Hell
to reach a Heaven, to reach
a pinnacle of success higher than Everest
so I can understand what it means to make it.
People say that the obstacles have
imprisoned me more than Bowser has Peach
but I’ve the combination to open any door,
unlock the paths I know will lead me to paradise.
I don’t need no pair of dice or gamble; I’m focused.
Others tell me to sleep but I’d rather
dream lucid, create my own inception
of a brand new day void of despair
without any rife turmoil
so that I may breathe in air
that makes it seem I live on Cloud Nine,
filled in an ambience that is divine.
It matters not if I work one month straight,
none of it will be in vain
because there may be some strife
as you go through life,
but there will be no sorrow
if we fight for a better tomorrow.
It’s been awhile y’all, research has been busy. But I will try to upload a lot more now to make up for my slacking on the blog! 🙂
Let me know what you all think! I’d love to hear comments or feedback:)
Got it recorded as well!
