Consistency (FF 59)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Consistency, what is life if not a fight
Against constant encroachment of entropy ending in eternal night
When I was young I used to wanna be like Mike
But now the confines of a court seem to severely hinder sight
Of my mind’s eye, time flies, but I’m a catch the draft
And ride it to the top above the clouds honing my craft
My moment of truth is now and every instant after
Livin in the present chapter spreading smiles and laughter
The evils try to capture us media here to baffle us
Telling us look thataway while every day they gaffle us
And tough is not killin ya brotha, fuck that
Tough is standing up to the people that created the trap
They hijacking our thought process, gaslightin us
Tellin us we wrong so long that we can’t see the right in us
But you are powerful and beautiful
And will only continue to grow as you embrace the truth in you
