Obstacle course

Been steering around massive obstacles "it seems"
so many directions
Another injured course
of directions in life

Potholes "Ah man....."
all along the way
some big boulders
so what's going on today

People literally becoming

physical road blocks

Police barricades...

thrown in your full...
view and directional
So what's going on today with your false path

I don't even know
maybe you didn't master your sciences and math

so don't laugh!

Drugs being sold across the border like
candy stores do to children
in those neighborhoods
them blocks
them corners

You know whats going on
them people always goners


Mothers always mourners

False blockades set up
like traps for illegal aliens
not stopping them but stopping you
so abominable...


You of all people gets caught in the act
the false proceeds
the false transacts

A fallen victim became feign to a lost Chase
in a mean Queens & Brooklyn themes
acting like crooks in scenes
you see capitalizing on them things

But you not
they getting you caught up
locked.....
inside that solid block..

"yeah"

Living by Chemically addictive means now
so whats going on with those feigns now

Artificially processed dreams now
Everything you consume now you see now

Life force drained
what and internal blockage
so many lost remains

No longer living by normality of your days
skies free

So whats going on with this inhuman ways

Forced entry recurrence by attack
attackers and attack patterns
"Damn" its messed up whats going on
Rings like spinning on that Saturn

I don't even know, I don't have that, I'm just a ignorant

sitting over here
trying to figure out what's going on over there

Old man, angry ex lover, mid age woman, college students

Smoking up crack
toking up them facts
pipe dreams of & false dreams

Drunk drivers steering into walls of Criminal Intent

A true life story
repeating hazards and them modes

@torrilynn, thanks for that cool comment and vote up. Yeah I been working long and hard hours on all this.

I must admit, it does feels good that folks are beginning to catch wind of it all here on hubpages. I will try to do more and improve all that I can over time with the freestyle/spoken word and all.

Thank you Ruby, I hope it appeals to the Youtube audience, but they are indeed a tough crowd to please today, so we shall see. I may redo it and ad-lib it as well as choose another instrumental for it, we shall see in due time.
