compassionate w/ my composition

...so inspired, so devious- yet so simple.
back in the day, when things were cool- all we needed was asfdasfjasdlfjaf. nothing.
the only way to get to where your going is by knowing where you came from.
i used to think i had it all figured out because i had first-hand experience.
really, it wasnt until i was able to look back at my past for things to make sense.
have you ever been hungry before? -steady on the grind.
...gotta make a revolution out of 15 cents.
i never thought i would have to say this but apparently it isn't only time zones that change around the world.
close your mind. close your eyes. see with your heart.
i ran into a lot of people who felt the need to stress their realism. _if that word applies.
i hate the fact that i have to write this down, because i don't want to seem as if I'm giving myself a certain title, but the _word must be heard.

honesty is a very important quality to possess, and for some reason i think that having to say you practice it should be equivalent to a double-negative. hope that makes sense, if not:
what i mean is that honesty (being "real") is subjective and having to say that you posess this quality is pointless- therefore when you do, i see you as a forcer. lmao you forcin' it.

i had this convo w/ a friend the other day. (shouts out to kim e. lol)
being real doesnt come from your ability to keep it real with other people.
being real should be determined based on how well you keep it real w/ yourself.
everyday people lie to God, so what makes you think they won't lie to you.

& staying true to yourself (and God) will show others your "realness."
eventhough i love GAME and how lovely it sometimes sounds when its spat,
execution is the only thing that matters. -actions.
that is how i will determine if the game was true.


-the ink of a scholar is worth a thousand times more than the blood of a martyr.
