STILL I RISE

STILL I RISE

A Poem by TheReal

While life lives itself it's living me
The time winds down slowly and endlessly
Forever is never so now is the when to be
I am the beginning so never is the end to see
Unbelievably I feel like I'm livin
I try to grab the horns of the life that I'm given
My hands slip off now this life is just winnin
But I regain my grip cause what's life without sinnin
And its sending me spinnin
Cause the places I've been in
Aren't so pleasant or gracious
These were horrible places
Me surrounded by darkness
In a ditch I had fallen
It had made me so heartless
But God then heard me callin
Then he gave me some sight
He removed me from Hell
Now my vision is bright
And I'm living life well
So I keep hope alive
Wont lose faith til I die
And even then when I'm falling
...Still I rise :)

First of all, the complete capital letters make it look as if you're yelling. So, please, don't use them. Second, I think that you are a wonderful lyricist. If you are a musician, I do envy you. I have attempted to write my own share of lyrics, but none of them have ever come out to seem as much of a song as this. I would be very delighted if you happened to put some music to this (if you have the means to, anyway). If not, it's perfectly all right. It was lovely to have read this. Truly full of emotion. I could definitely see you as a famous lyricist.

For off the top of your head I am doubly impressed. You reveal so much passion in your writings. It is a rare gift.
Set to an atmospheric mood of music this could really make an impression
Well done, again!

it sounds like it should be a rap, very beautiful, moving and touching. God is so good.

That's some height that these words came from
off the top your head, you said? damn.. I like the beat and conviction you tell in altitude schemes, you paint inner child dreams from a welcoming mind, which by thought has you living a world, so rhythmical, a verbal attitude telling each thin read line..posing poem of this inner struggle survival... good stuff

Hey people. I apologize for my use of caps. My laptop was on caps lock and I didn't change it. But thanks for the feedback :) I'm glad that my lyrics are a pleasure to read.
