Im a thief i steal


Im a thief i steal words.
I steal words from my
mind my books my destiny
my life my fantacy my
teacher my friend my
mama my papa i am a
thief.
I heard human have lost
touch and respect some are
called the young i guess
we name them youth they
are the generation.
Who educate the next jah
words i stole from my
mind.
Im a thief i stole it from the
book that teenagers make
babies like machines they
just make and get paid.
Huh i stole i.
2 men were speaking of
accusing another man of
somethng he didnt do. I
stole it and wrote it down.
I steal words as my family
speaks confidentialy
publicly whatever way
even in the street with u
and me even from our chat
our conversation i steal i
am a thief.
I am the kind of thief who
steal words to inspire you.
To warn you to give life to
you. To give light to you i
am a thief.
One thief that steals words
from a bible by mind and
eyes to rewrite them to
you ay did i?
I stole 1 2 3 4 and more
verses from the bible to
recover from the worlds
negativity.
I had to steal positive from
HIV SO I CAN LIVE. Positively
and leave negativity aside.
I steal words from singers
poets minds books media i
steal i steal i steal and it
gets worse almighty knew
i steal and i had to steal
your attention to read this
piece.
I am a thief i steal to
motivate you to steal
positivity and live to
succeed with faith.
