Moving on from your Yesterdays

I’m tired of these lesser days
Living in a whirlpool
Drowning in these yesterdays
The same ol same ol
Everyday you can hear the silence
Being interrupted by domestic violence
Fist crashing into flesh of a defenseless
Victim of tough love
And everyday
The kids that were just at play
Lay in blood from orgasmic spray
Done by the fore play
Of hoods finger fucking guns
And its everyday
Little girls trying to grow up to quickly
Letting guys of older ages hit to quickly
And before you know it
They grown at the age of 15
Faster than you can say
“They Grow Up So Quickly”
And you can see broken dreams in the eyes
Of the older folks
Drugs buying out souls
Turning them to fiends
Desperate
Fragile minds breaking to the pressure of reality
Teardrops
Drive-bys
Cold hearts
Struggling
Trying to meet ends meet
But the bills keep you juggling
Living off pay check after pay check
Trying to get by
Sending for blessings
But they ain’t coming fast enough
Got out you out che
Sinning for blessings
Fuck they say you got to work your way on up don’t you?
So from the pits of hell
Go head and prevail…
….climb till you get to the heavens
Trying to get a buck
Ain’t getting no help round here
Cuz they don’t even give a fuck
And ain’t it just your luck
You a slave to poverty
And portrayed to be lesser than nothing
Trying to get ahead but you ain’t getting nowheres
Like a paraplegic without a wheelchair
You stuck in the land of Nowheres
Your days are just replays
Deja Vu
Perpetual darkness
Everyday seems like yesterday
Man the same ol same ol
And there seems like there will never be a tomorrow
But as time grows
Todays ends
And tomorrow begins
So the yesterdays
Can just fade
And let the light of a new day
Bring light your way
Just keep your head up
Because the forecast ain’t always going to be sunny
Rainy days going come
Sometimes lasting from Monday to Sunday
But know rainy days ain’t the only days on the forecast
Sunny days going to come around
Exterminating your yesterdays
No more lesser days
No more living in a whirlpool
Drowning in these yesterdays
Taking your life of pause
And finally allowing you to press play
And live

Moving on from your Yesterdays

Artist's Description

I was inspired to write this after peering at my surroundings of where I live and have others like this but this is one of my favorites
I’m totally intune with this one
Going to drop a beat behind it
And start reciting it so I can perform it at poetry clubs
Let me know what you think about it and what your favorite lines were if any…..Sincerely Daz
