For Pops (FF 80)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Everybody got a cross to bear
You might come up when you at a loss for air
The thoughts that I think when I’m off the air
They be hard to share, freak out, toss a chair
Stressed out, loss of hair
Checked out as if I don’t care, not all there
Been ghosted by folks who didn’t deserve my time
Afloat in a ocean of feelings of heart I died
A tiny bit on the inside but then rise
Love and hate is a thin line the incline
Of my life has pitfalls and windfalls
It’s all intense it keeps me enthralled
I’ve been in walls and felt emotions
That had me open, but still it’s hard to open up
And I don’t know what keeps me shut
It’s like I can’t speak of what
I for real feel in the feelings of my gut
This is real spill I’ve been sealed up long enough
But I’ma take time to grow
A lotta new tools that can help me navigate the roads
The more I learn the less I’m sure that it stops
I dedicate this rhyme to my Pops
