The Test

Posted in Room By Myself, Word Is Bond with tags , , , , , , on April 20, 2010 by Ron
You told me that I am the Captain of My Faith,
The Master of My Soul
And yet…
I feel there are outside forces that are out of my control

Ever since I’ve done wrong
I swear I’ve tried my best to do right,
but time and time again
There are those forces…
bringing me plight

And I’ve been constantly reassured
Been constantly told that everything will work itself out
Been told that I’m too good for things to not go right
…in the end

And I’ve done my best to believe.
Honest to God I have.
Think.
Believe.
Receive.
I’ve been working on these steps for so long
And yet…
I’m still that same mouse
Looking for that damn cheese….

Let me stop myself
because I actually did find that cheese
But then those forces stepped in
Needless to say,
I had been deceived.
Now I’m like the boy at his fathers funeral
Trying my best not grieve
Acting strong for everyone else
I’m simply pulling on my sleeve
Trying to muster up all my might
For the fight will soon begin
The forces have found its way
To attend me deep within

Just like light
Our minds sometimes bend
Showing us a picture that’s really just pretend
It’s all just a test
Will you transcend or descend?
The answer lies with the person within….

I Got Soul

Posted in Black Thought, Spit Something Crazy, Word Is Bond with tags , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2010 by Ron

I’ve got soul like the afro pick with the black fist
Like an innocent baby given the chance to exist

Like,
Bruh Man
Ay yo
Bruh Man
Bean pies 2 for $5
It’s
Quite the deal
Why would I lie?

I’ve Got Soul

More like a pimp
Cause I ain’t never been no hoe
It’s that slight
Lean or Dip
As I,
Stride or Stroll

If you went
Back in Time
Asked,
James Brown
Sam & Dave
They’d tell you the same

It’s that
90’s Era
“Excuse Me…Come Again?”
FLAVOR IN YA EAR

Some say its that
Thing to make your hair Curl & Glow
Or
Maybe it’s
Under the feet
Near the popsicle toes.

Well we know it gives you that
“And for this I am thankful”
Type of feeling
And it runs through every inch of your body like
Good Loving
It’s just so
Spiritually healing.

It sparked those
Malcolm X activists
The
Martin Luther King pacifists

It made
East Bay Grease,
Helped you
Rock Steady
And gave you that
Sqaure Biz
And I’m not talking about what it was
I’m talking about what it is.

It tries to leave with every sneeze
But gets pushed back with every bless

No Stress

And if any a man tries to bring it down
Look them in the face and tell them this:

My soul is NOT for sale
Its
Functional
It
never fails
And there’s never a doubt whether I’ll achieve my goals
Just because of the simple fact that
I GOT SOUL

Love? Listen….

Peep Game…

Love?

Listen….

You see its no doubt we sorta kinda had some sorta connection
I mean
I’m digging ya feet
and I know your digging mine

Wait….
Rewind

I mean digging ya feat
not ya feet but
ya features
You knew it when I
licked my lips and
looked you up and down on the
Nice To Meet Ya

Tip.

But Anyways

Love?

Listen….

Yea
We spent the days together
You know…
Breakfast
A snack here
Lunch
A snack there

And you know what…
I’ll even admit to the nights
Dinner and a movie
After an appetizer
But before dessert.

We did the whole ya digs
Dig me?
Haha
True.

But anyways

Love?

Listen….

I can’t deny that
we touched thighs
Cyndi Lauper…
Time after Time

On that South

Tip.

From the
Front.
Back.
Sitting Side

Ways.

And I’ve heard you scream
Many a short bursts of words
But…

Love?

Listen….

Fast forward

Now its been a while since
I’ve last seen you
3 months to be exact

You
Looked a little different
Like
something was
weighing you down.
That
Life Binding Contract
That…
“But I thought gravity would preve…”
I mean…
“You were on top that time…”

Wait

This must be some type of mistake
Its
probably just all in your head
Or
maybe its just something you ate

“Look
Just get rid of it…”

“I’m still in school
And doing great”

“Did you ever think about me?”

“I’m too young to be dealt this fate…”

Love?

Listen….

The Stereotype

Posted in Spit Something Crazy, Word Is Bond with tags , , , , on February 13, 2010 by Ron

When it comes to the stereotypes

I’m quite defiant.

I play a little ball here and there

But it’s not what I want to spend my life with

And just because i have a knack with words

doesn’t mean I prefer the life of a rap star

Gold in my mouth

Neck and wrists iced out

With pretty women and fancy cars.

You see, I’m also quite good in math

But won’t cut corners

by cutting quarters and selling crack

Like you would expect me to do since my skin color is black

And since I’m black

Don’t expect me to fill another jail cell

Expect me to work towards my highest goal and then excell

And never doubt me when I meet struggle

I don’t need another speech on discrepancy

For I was told that it was only through this

That I shall reach my true destiny

The Truth

Posted in Word Is Bond with tags , , , , on February 8, 2010 by Ron

They say looks can be deceiving
but the truth can really hurt you
Think about the aftermath of what you say
cuz like a factor they’ll convert you
you live life in a line…
you’ve gotta move around like a circle…
or a sphere
Dont believe those who say that the end is near
just cut them out of your hair like brittany spears
Im only going to say this once…
but very loud & clear
SEE THINGS FOR HOW THEY REALLY ARE
NOT JUST HOW THEY APPEAR

So keep using your medulla
Express whats in your abla
Some people do it cuz they want to….but believe me cuz u gotta
be able to express yourself before you can learn to contain…
and if u finish this process
there is much to gain.
If you dont…you’ll lose
whether it falls or you pull it like a loose tooth
If you eat too much candy…it will effect the root.

I know that this probably went
over your head
but let it set in your mind
read between the lines

THIS IS THE TRUTH

One More Week…

Posted in Word Is Bond with tags , , , , , , , on January 4, 2010 by Ron

and I’ll be back at Howard…

whether I’m studying…

or chilling…

or working on some crazy project…

or partying…

I’ll always keep in mind what I’m here for, and stay focused to work towards my goal…

2010

Posted in Word Is Bond with tags , , on January 1, 2010 by Ron

Well Happy New Years everyone, I hope you brought it in with bang…and if not, whatever.

Since my words are like vegetables I feel inclined to leave you with some food thought:

“SUCCESS is not a time or place; It is a process one works towards EVERYDAY”

So continue to strive, do your best, and always work towards your highest goal. “It is only through STRUGGLE does one cultivate the strength to reach their true destiny”
