I never lied when I said the city eats you alive.
If it’s not loud then it’s a dream.
He was a father I never knew,
My words usually are crueler than true.
I will never shine amongst the sky,
I must dwell with the stars.
Once I have it in my hands,
It’s no longer beautiful.
If I had the world right now, right there in my palms,
I wouldn’t have the wisdom of GOD to resist crushing it.
It is only beautiful when I’m chasing it,
When my heart beats fast as I run towards it,
The moment before it is in my grasp, I realise I never wanted it.
