The Journey

The Journey

A Poem by M. View

 

“THE JOURNEY”
BY: M. View
 
New out look on life comes at many different times
In the 8th grade of School I learned how to rhyme
New to the cats that know me real well
Work real hard to stay off those reels
The one that destroys from inside to out
That why I try to watch what comes out my mouth
Real messages real story real life in fact
I hold on punches throw nothing but the axe
Had to break away from so called friends
Only those who are true comes back before the end
A student of life that’s what I’m
That’s bewildered by the evil of men
The sciences of deception
And the art on corruption
Is toxic if you take it wrong
Many young people have taken it wrong
Destroying their nature
Encaging them in their own mind
Leaving their freedom all behind
I use to be there I took that route
Luckily I found a slim way out
And Took time to start my own house
It was not easy on those cloudy days
Sip the herbals of life to get me out of the hays
Walked the path and felt like I was all alone
Looked behind to see my foot prints were gone
Remembering things said from days gone by
Pass the wisdom along before you die
Must be part of the phenomenon to stop the letter
Willy had that thing will put together
My journey of life is eyes wide open and coping
This letter for thoughts who’s noise is wide open.

When we learn to be alone is when we accomplish all things. It is a great feeling to do great things with the help of others but it is even better when one can do it on their own. That was a lesson and a half for me. It is great to have people around but you need to be able to stand on your own if and or when they leave.

Great piece.
