“The Lord giveth and

the Lord taketh away,”

and while he can appear

fickle I’m expected not

to change, a test of

endurance, that’s the

game that we play, he

throws the punches to

see how much we can

take, before we say

fuck it, and just

walk away.




But I didn’t sign up

for this shit to

back down. I never

prayed for blessings

in the name of the

crown. I never asked

for a sign to show that

for heaven I’m bound.

Just here to say there’s

nothing better in the

world that I’ve seen,

than having a dream

and sticking with

what you believe.

About the author

I am a King without a Kingdom, in a world with many masters, wrapped in the spoils of a jealous heart, and my people’s callous laughter.
