Life’s rife with strife,
got my share of strife
impossible to ignore life’s blights
nightlife trying to hide jive,
strife despite gripes to deny
life on test drive, clamoring to survive
outlive the overdrive,
contrive to connive to stay alive
don’t attempt to outlive the clouds into which we dive
only to insist our offspring live the lives we try to give them
nine to five aint all life’s meant
work all day & strive to survive
day after day, fill our lives with what we must do to survive
Our lives are not always such  
a pleasure drive
I’d much rather do what I love
Instead of what I have to do
I’ve got double trouble in this life

No Looking Back

No sorrow or regrets
Get with the flow
Get where u got to go
Get where you want to be
Sounds pretty hip-hop to me
Battery operated society
Words fade into the past
Meanings and connections lost
Let the world know, it’s time to grow
Leap forward into a world we don’t know
Time to plough through the garbage
Quid pro quo, it’s our planet here
My words like music, fill your ears
My lips, soft like rose petals touch your lips
Words fill you with sounds I don’t hear
Rhymes I spout fill your heart
Be political, keep making art!
