“I seen a lotta things changing my perspective,
I seen a lotta things I never expected.
People drinking liquor tryna fill their emptiness.
Spending all their money on some people faking friendliness.
Money isn't happiness with nobody to spend it with,
And people actin' real but really they just gon be blendin' in,
I keep my circle small;
I know who rockin' with me.
'Cause some people say they got you but they changin' up too quickly.
When it go down they gone now,
Don't pick you up when you fall now.
But they hit you up when you on now,
And they want it all tryna ball out.
I know how that shit go,
Stay to myself and I get it alone.
Keepin' it real and I know what's the deal with the people that with me since I was at home.
Yeah people come, yeah people go;
I just sit back and collect gold.
I'd rather do it all on my own.
No one else can fill in my role.
Time is moving I cannot stay.
Lost people with a smile on display.
Fuck this window that I'm standin' in,
I'm doing more than all these mannequins.”
——————————————————————————— Damn this keeps happening; This year has been the most toxic and renewing year in both music and in life it feels like. This album dropped out of nowhere. I swear there are days I feel I’ve lived ten lifetimes, and then the next I see my own youthful naivety reflected back at me. I’ve known who I was, and what I wanted for a while. Even before I figured that part out I think. The best way to show people who you are is by doing the best you can for what surrounds you at the time. It’s easy to see who someone really is when you strip everything away from them. You either find a new way to prosper, or you move on with your life. I get wrapped up in the small things all the time, but then days like today happen and I remember why I still chase this dream. Life is about the journey, and the world is never one thing or another. These paragraphs and photos are only a window into my world. I wish you could see what I see most days.
Speaking of windows here’s probably my favorite set of photos from the entire garden. Week 10 still. Enjoy. (Photo info in comment section this time - out of space up here hahah.)
