Dimensional

All this time that’s passed me by
I question the effort that I’ve tried
To really be someone who stands out
To be someone who can conquer the doubts
Being there for someone else in a time of need
Without them feeling as if I’m doing it for greed
The society has shifted to taint perceptions of charity
Doing something just to help without an attachment to money
Many feel you expect something in return if you give
Why is it no longer just acceptable to be positive in how you live
With all the people crying out, they shouldn’t be put down in shame
They’re only human at the end of the day
Life is serious we can’t overlook the responsibility
The purpose to truly utilize our unique individual personalities
Perfection is something that many are out there to seek
Little do they know that chase is what makes them weak

Fighter’s Spirit

Some identify as a lover or a fighter
We can fight many things heavy or lighter
As the darkness grows and time passes
Death is one thing certain for the masses
No matter the difference of opinion
That time will come to end the mission
There are many things to prepare for
We do our best to achieve more
Slow and steady may win the race
However it can be tough to keep a smile on the face
As trials and tribulations persist
It can prevent success appearing on the list
Our plans don’t always come to fruition
No matter the amount of education
We embrace different things
We witness different beginnings
Nothing wrong with fighting for love
Trying to continue to rise above
Battling the many adversaries can be rough
But without testing how can we become tough
The motivation to move on isn’t always there
Many lose the drive to continue to care
Life isn’t fair we all know this
But we still strive to experience bliss
Fighting the physical can be detrimental
But fighting the spiritual is monumental
Whatever comes your way and proclaims war
Do your best to conquer and roar
Don’t stay silent waiting to die
There’s a reason we’re given a lifetime
Find and fulfill the purpose
Because fearing death isn’t worth it

Rule

Today with all these new “rules”, I’d rather be the exception
There is no reason to cultivate to this nonsense, no exemption
I want to move forward in life to be one of God’s extensions
So that I can further experience his blessings

Many people conform to what it is they think is the new norm
Each time experiencing a form of storm
These waves of emotion tackling their mind
Bruising their personalities each and every time

Depression has run rampant over the public
Everybody seems at a loss to what is causing it
Categorizing it as an illness
Little do they know their ignorance

We can’t solve problems when we ignore the variables
Each algorithm has a set of steps in order for a solution to be capable
Eliminating the centerpiece to the core of our understanding
Will continue to bury all the normalcy and comfort we wish to be feeling

Necessity

Being alone brings a great peace
Something that is so elegant, a great release
When one is alone physically
You can be comforted greater spiritually
Many people view certain lifestyles as lonely
When you’re never truly singular if you’ve come to know the Heavenly

This life can present quite the masquerade
People wearing many different masks each day
Hiding their true selves to one person or the next
Presenting a falsification of what is really going on in their head
Many seek after what it is they wish to find
Rather than the gifts they should desire from the Divine

Hope hasn’t died, just many people have given up
They’ve turned away from the truth and relied on what they can pour into a cup
Enough is enough, but only they can decide to change
There are those of us who provide the tools to present grace
Just many ignore the need for something greater
Because they get tied up in the fact that everyone has errors
Which should indicate to them the reason we all need a Savior

Judgment

Peaceful transitions seem to no longer be a thing
There is always some form of hatred brewing
Stating the negative time and time again
When life is meant to serve as something pleasant

Everyone out to get what is theirs
When they don’t deserve anything due to leaving others in despair
Togetherness is how we should view a community or country
Not delegating separation as the mainstay just for the commentary

Lots of words being spout over the television
With none of them discussing the proper vision
The airwaves are tainted with these lines of thinking
Holding us all back instead of empowering the thought of progressing

Everyone seems to be at ease with the flow of controversy
As long as they get their 15 minutes of fame, who’s complaining
People are so hungry for attention we’re now accustomed to mass murder
The world needs help as it is continuing to be in a haunted slumber

This nightmare of evil rising clear as day
Nobody courageous enough to part ways
They continue to embed themselves into the fray
However, all these wars won’t compare to the wrath that will soon come into play

Trance

So many today befuddled by visuals
Caught into the whirlwind of the unofficial
Superficial in the line of thinking
When realness is what they are truly seeking
Hesitant in the realm of believing
With the surface being all they’re seeing
Being fooled with the flare
The deception clearly being there
It just appears they no longer care
As long as they can experience
Some form of momentary bliss
Blind to the facts, still chasing satisfaction
All this time lost in translation
Are they askin’ the right questions
Or is their identity no longer of their own expression

Bushel

Different shades and different styles
Is the mask you’re wearing really worthwhile
What is it you’re truly hiding away
What is it that you’re afraid of today

Are the thoughts you wish to see excel
Being smothered away because you don’t want to tell
Is the change you want to see
Something you’re keeping to yourself instead of letting it be free

What needs to happen to make you feel secure
To make you feel the voice you have can mature
To be something that can help influence the right progress
What experience needs to take place for you to want that success

If you’re contemplating many ideas, why not share
Allow yourself to show that you care
Life isn’t fair, but we’re meant to help improve situations
So don’t hide away with silence or doubt being a destination

Pleasure or Pressure

What do you feel most, pleasure or pressure
Do you seek more pleasure to ease the pressure
Are you feeling pressure to get pleasure
Where enlies your mindset, your true treasure

Various surroundings persuading us to do one thing
While other forces try to control us through brainwashing
Our perceptions alter with each experience
As we live each day with the world becoming more delirious

Is there any room for pleasure while under pressure
Responsibilities mounting up as you try to endure
The pressure upon your shoulders to move forward
Is the pleasure you’re seeking something really to look toward

With every action there is a reaction
With every pro there is a con
As you depict the different definitions
Is your life an accurate reflection

Embrace

Complexion and perception are unusual characteristics
Thoughts that drive the emotions of differing logistics
No matter how hard you may try you feel inept inside
Struggling with how you view the image you portray on the outside

Some of us don’t cut ourselves any slack
Expecting perfection when nobody else even has that
Utilizing every chance to enhance certain aspects
Rather than giving ourselves an ounce of self respect

Fighting with our own views
In such ways that others have no clue
None of this should come as news
Since we’ve all suffered a pinch of the blues

For some reason many times compliments fall to the wayside
Due to the sheer amount of disbelief someone holds in tough times
We’re all in some way shape or form tied together with experiences
Since everyone has encountered judgments that were serious

What we see in the mirror is made up of more than just that image
There are far greater explanations and sensations that produce the vision
Everyone reacts differently to what it is they see
Considering we all think and operate uniquely

How it is we react and contemplate
Will determine what kind of life we create
Each moment introduces a new opportunity
With the future waiting patiently

What will we do differently
Does change even need to happen, not necessarily
The context with which you view is up to you
Just don’t hesitate to be something great by missing the lessons of what you’ve gone through

Suffocation

1st Verse:
When I’m locked up faced with struggle
Everyone’s a critic tryin’ to give me trouble
As if the stress of life wasn’t enough
They all want to add their nonsensical stuff

Getting through the days these days
Seems to be an ambitious task to undertake
All eyes on my actions as others experience satisfaction
They think they have everything figured out, all the information

Heaps of responsibilities off in the distance
Many people looking to me for assistance
Advice is something they tend to seek
Then when the tide shifts they hide from me

A barrage of questions always floods the room
With each breath I can feel the wrath of doom
The clock ticks each second getting closer to my death
All the drama around us when will I get to feel a rest

2nd Verse:
My faith has taught me to swim
But there are still times I feel imprisoned
The sense of having a free spirit
Has made it difficult to dodge the darkness

They say that opposites attract
Which is why my light is being attacked
There’s no bushel that can hide the shine
It’s far too strong since it comes from the divine

Hollow thoughts can be a dangerous distraction
Before you know it you become frozen

As the walls continue to close in
My trust needs to remain in Him

With my own ways causin’ this downfall
I need to surrender in order to give my all
The pressure seeping into my skin
My mind is off in all sorts of directions

Too many others showering me with opinions
I just want my freedom to continue to live
Seeking out facts to once again be a benefit
Please allow me to remain separate
