It’s a new age… It’s the return of the real

He asked me if I was a rapper or a singer
I replied.. I’m a writer I’m a lyricist 
Conscious living realest 
Cold summers hot winters, living in hard times 
Still breaking bread with mine
Still saving tax free for mine.. low interest fixed time 
So many living on the breadline 
Treading water heads barely above the poverty line
A line we struggle to define..
Heavy breathing bills pilling stress mounting pill popping, striving whilst surviving 
Sleeping with demons committing crimes
No filter real times
Let me lay it bare let my soul implode, stripe back raw feelings
Corrupted and manipulated we all need healing
Free me from me, free she free he
Mentally chained by society by what we see and believe 
Speak your truth boldly no shame, shout it out loud 
Black lives matter fighting to be heard in white crowds 
Begging and pleading can you feel our pain
Snakes and ladders like life’s a game

Up and down we go
Round and round we spin
No Russian roulette in it for the win
Third eye vision, eyes wide open around here
No longer living in fear
More and more are becoming aware 
There’s no time to sit scroll and stare
wondering what if 
It’s all a lie, photoshopped cropped and edited 
It’s all superficial do it for the gram material, but rise up we will
gods and goddesses It’s a new age, it’s the return of the real

    People call it “LUCK.” There is no roulette. Only your deeds. Setbacks will come and go like clouds doesn’t mean you have to face thunders every time. The sun will shine, which will perish all your negativity and self doubt. I really enjoyed this. Thanks for putting efforts.
    Stay positive. Peace.
