Forever Young

The older I get
The older I get
My childhood I try never to forget
I will forever stay learning from what my elders say
Mentally in a vicious cycle my words will replay
There are no goodbyes for my reprise
You will never believe all that my mind conceives
So my words will live on even when I die
No sighs and no cries
Just know I’ll be with God the day of my demise
Wipe your eyes
Just open up the covers and read the pages inside
I’m still there
I’m still here
Believe all of what you read and half of what you hear
You’ll hear my voice and read my words
Just know that in time time gives all that is deserved
Time deceives w/ no movement
i age yet the clock does not
Long before I was here and even more after I am gone
It will continue its relentless tick tock
I stopped wearing watches and I don’t own an alarm clock
I stay up for days at a time resenting time
Resenting the climb representing the changing times
By design I design lines well equipped to fit my tongue
Leaving dazed and confused like a jury that just got hung

The older I get
The older I get
My childhood I try never to forget
I will forever stay learning from what my elders say
Mentally in a vicious cycle my words will replay

From a boy to a man
Here is where I stand
I’m so outta place
so outta this race
Tortoise and the hare
My losses are public faced
My faults are the subjects tape
This is not where I belong
No worries and no concerns, that’s my only song
Love is my only wrong
King of my castle and I can’t be dethrowned
Misunderstood and misread
Ambition and passion keeps my fountain of youth
Sayersooth showing teeth like a sabertooth
You can not take me for you did not make me
Prompted by a feeling to utter this statement

The older I get
The older I get
My childhood I try never to forget
I will forever stay learning from what my elders say
Mentally in a vicious cycle my words will replay
My words will forever replay
