NOT GIVING UP
Gently I sat down, when you came to me with your sweet passionate eyes.
I turned my back at you, yet you chose me.
Caressed me, seduced me, nurtured me and grew me.
Now I’m old enough to be a thorn in your flesh!
Just when you thought I was ripe enough for a bite of my flesh.
Now you’re going to drop me like something you detest!
Look! you love me! Don’t let me go!
The longer you stay with me, the better I get!
Touch my thorns, embrace my arrows, I won’t hurt, I won’t bite, I won’t sting you!
I’ve got double edged swords that could pierce through the wall of Jericho, but I won’t itch you!
Like a movie actor, I also play hard to get!
I’m ALL for the taking, not for lease of for rent!
Hold on to God if it’s what it takes!
Be a free thinker, if it’s what it takes!
Whatever you have to do to get to me is all your plague!
I am your death, your gray hair!
Yet I am your life after death, oh boy, how can I make this clear?!
I am black, I am white! I am the rainbow after the night!
I am the sun in the rain! The reason why you blaze.
I am the clay in your hands, somebody give him a spatula!
you act like you don’t know me! All you want is me, why such denial!
you cannot hide me, I’ve always been in your father’s library!
I am your DOOMSDAY(S).. I am your PAYDAY… your Orgy.
I live on your streets, I live in your air conditioner; the split
I am Micro, yet so very Soft…
I am the Apple of your Jobs!…
i am F-O-R to the D!
I am the DM, the IM.
I am the Blog of LI!
I am the possessor of Tu Faces!
I am the Wizard that possesses the Kid!
I am the reason you GLO.
I am the Lion that roams about Judah, no, i’m not of any tribe.
I am your habit, the good and the bad, in me you imbibe.
I am him.. I am her… I am us, I am them.
I am you…
I am your hustle.
Don’t Leave Me.
