A Detour

On the way down the path of redemption, I see a sign
That the road turns here, the path is  in my mind
But my grind still going, My soul still pleading
That this detour will not break my logic & reason (x2)

I’m treading through the dangerous waters of my mind
But I’m trying to find my way through before time
Runs out on my life, my struggle, my strife
The life I spent the last 8 years trying to fight
To get it how I want, Live it how I please
To follow through with everything, instead of a tease
I’m always following through, never following suit
Militant discipline so trill, haters salute
Since they got no choice to embrace the truth
That I do this for fun, I rhyme to let loose
And I push all limits, I hit all curves
I drive a straight path, even in a crazy swerve
But here’s a swerve that you couldn’t predict
My life changed in a blink of an eye without comment
So I turned to rhyming and writing rap
To let every obstacle know that I don’t give a crap
On the way down the path of redemption, I see a sign
That the road turns here, the path is  in my mind
But my grind still going, My soul still pleading
That this detour will not break my logic & reason (x2)

Once I turned left, I saw all the demons
The sorrow, the depression, even tempting heathens
My mind so weak from all my other tests
I felt like a baby cuddling next to his mother’s breasts
I fought depression, suicide, pessimism, self-doubt
Think your story’s rough, here’s what mine is about
It’s about a guy who blazed a path of morality
Met bullies, and left and right they caused fatality
They pushed every button, used every trick
To get me to the point where I’d say eat a dick
Well, congrats bitch, you made me not be nice
Got me to the point where I see a head to slice
Up and keep going, just because I can
Sad thing is that this is far from being a man

On the way down the path of redemption, I see a sign
That the road turns here, the path is  in my mind
But my grind still going, My soul still pleading
That this detour will not break my logic & reason (x2)

Sometimes…..life has detours. Make sure you get on the right path. – L.E.
