Didn't Have A Watch

Nine pm I'm off my medicine again man what trap I'm In,
tables turning and life keep's on spinning around me,
what about the life we was suppose to live in,
no doubt that this was a nightmare in progress,
everybody's picking on me so they judging me,
didn't have a watch to tell time this time baby,
missing my fans just wanna make my fans clap again,
this was a mistake to carry all this weight on my shoulder,
like I'm in prison and nobody winning,
I know this was never suppose to end this way,
time for no war but peace today,
give my heart to everyone like I always had,
is this the way we end off with nuclear bombs blowing? ,
didn't have a watch we making things bad then what they are,
one caring heart put under the dust because nobody believed in him,
we are misplaced trying to find our way through this storm we cannot face,
11 pm I'm on my medicine trying to tell my story,
but every ghost from the dead has a line in this story,
Watch the storm clouds hit us all at once and we still unbeliever's,
bet they didn't know the truth about gods promise it's real,
through my eyes we fallen trying to count the times we party together,
instead of living the right way and believing in the afterlife,
that's how I come to realize I didn't have a watch.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
