Thoughts Through My Eyes

Nobody knows the visual of my thoughts….
…of burning babies with cries of “save me”…
Nothing but hatred in my teardrops.
Fighting the power that has infested my human nature with greed…
As life continues to become a struggle just to breathe.
Witnessing the selfish acts of another…
To the self-destructive wicked sins of a mother.
As my sight never seems to deceive…
…the maze of life is puzzling…
To my thoughts through my eyes with the heartache it’s seen.
I can see my image through the waters of life…
Standing strong like a soldier…but secretly crying at night.

Thoughts Through My Eyes
I seen myself bad choices with the right intentions…
To obtain prosperity in life…
Temptation dominates the pleasure of the flesh, but I’m willing to fight.
Better do it with vengeance because it can cost me my soul…
As my life is constantly reminding my emotions to stay cold.

Thoughts Through My Eyes
I see a past that was filled with too much heartache and pain…
Because I was born a victim to my environment and handcuffed to these chains.
And sometimes we never find the right answers or seem to know why…
The pain of my reality continues to acknowledge my thoughts through my eyes.
