a smile on the outside
a sign of happiness they say
But how come i'm not
for me right now a smile is a reflex
honestly it's my politically correct subconcious smiling
because me in my true world i'm being hardened
hardened by the reality of my present true existence
not hard like a rock
but hard like water
hard on a bellyflop
and smooth on a dive
Oh damn turn into a wave if i have to
So hard that after a nuclear bomb explosion all u see is ripples
hated my most but fandumentally adored by all

They say wat goes around comes around..huh!
Maybe at a bus-stop
but in my world
wat goes around leaves a lesson
and when it gets back there is a library in its honor

They say happiness is on the inside
But wait a minute, how do i even know where inside to look?
Oh.. in the heart they say
it seems to make sense .......
but wait another minute
Isn't happiness a spontaneous outcome of a good deed
but again, what if the happiness wagon breaks down before it gets to my stop?
And How come stress,betrayal and straight-up hypocracy have to drink from my cup
eat from my plate, sleep in my sheets and even lounge in ma dreams?

NO..no..no.. the question is should i really be waiting?
and then the answer came in two words
"INNER PEACE"....huh..!
Yes Inner peace
but how do i find it
No son u don't find it
U reason it
not with your emotion but your true conscience
because emotion is a decision after a feeling
and your conscience dictates your feelings
Only true-reality is untouched
Take it like it is my son
Embrace it, learn from it, fix it
And above-all, realise that
there's no better definition of life than your present existence NOW
Notice it NOW, appreciate it NOW, love it NOW

That's wen you realise that time does stand still "NOW"
But only the comotion, Betrayal, Clouded-confusion
re-generate Generation after Generation within another
remember only NOW counts and the rest is a blind scramble
And then INNER PEACE shall be, not like a feeling but rather like an ORA
Let it embrace you, confort you and "NOW" shall ever be more than just a gift from GOD
but a continuous shower of blessings, Love, peace ,calm and protection all within a moment
and that is NOW

Let the faya burn and JAH-BLESS

letting another man's reality be your own truth is like riding a blind donkey with your eyes closed
