Weekly Check In (FF 69)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



How you feeling today
Did you lock up your feelings so no one can steal em away
Ayo, there’s living to do
Who better to experience it than you
I can’t live in the zoo, I moved outta the city
I’m a wild animal, shout out to Cellski
On a quest to be independently wealthy
But if my spirit ain’t healthy than the money can’t help me
You can’t really pull people along
Gotta do your own exercise in order to get strong
So many decisions I made objectively wrong
Succumbing to my peers when the pressure be on
I had to learn to think for myself first
And think of my self worth it took hella work
I had to ask for help, and asking for help hurts
The pride of the heart that I’m wearing on my shirt
And I’m not making excuses
Navigating our society’s many elaborate ruses
How do I blow up, without blowing my fuses
And make the people jump without straying from what the truth is
