can't hold me

i find myself in the middle of a skydive with no real parachute. i don’t feel overwhelmed by fright, although fear is lurking around my being like an aura. no, in the midst of this free-falling, i am vindicated by my sense of life. i have been through another spiral in my life and i hope i have learned to hold back  more this time.

the humbling thing with regard to my experience of living is that i venture into very similar scenarios repeatedly. the outcomes have changed with the onset of my recovery, but i still blindly walk into the magnetism of primitively scented relationships.

i would venture to say that i wear a cloak of naiveté which is woven into passion and excitement. this is probably one of my more attractive attributes. and i believe it attracts. it attracts wonderful friends and some predators. and i am still learning to discern.

luckily, experience has graced me with increased ability to rebound. i have survived many things which affords me the luxury of believing i might survive this insanity too.

My posse’s been on Broadway
And we did it, our way
Throne music, I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
And yet I’m on
Let that stage light go and shine on down
Got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style
Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds
But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
Trust me. on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T hustlin’
Chasing dreams since I was 14 with the four track bussing
Halfway cross that city with the backpack
Fat cat, crushin labels off
Yeah, Nah they can’t tell me nothing
We give that to the people
Spread it across the country
Labels out here
Nah they can’t tell me nothing
We give it to the people
Spread it across the country

Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till its over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
