Raised in the rough streets with trials and tribulations Barely passing through hard times I think I need a vacation But I stand tall with god on my side trying to live out the biblical scripture Wishing all my enemies and haters would see the big picture Even though I express myself they still treat me foul But someway somehow I smile Wanting to see self-destruction so they throw dirt on my name I guess that's how it is when you receive much fame Showing that this world wears a mask of a fake smiling face Knowing that if I don't handle my business I'm quick to get replace Even though they ridicule me for my self unique style Someway somehow I smile Please to be on my level and get where I'm at you got to raised the bar Believing in God and living the way I live is what got me this far That's why I strive for excellence and you see me do my very best And even though you try to stop me from God your just a test So in the public when you try to shame my name and act all wild Someway somehow I'll smile My Achievements and the celebration you so much despise But I'm like Maya Angelo "still like air I rise" You repeatly antagonized me like an annoying pest But you can't upset me I'm fully blessed But even though my troubles may run long as the Nile Someway somehow I smile Coming where I come from its not all fun and games And with all this drama you find it hard to maintain Sometimes it gets so hard I wish my soul he would lift But I know must pass, anoint, and give my gift And even though my pain is not easy and not mild Somehow someway I smile But when you haters get your way and it's time for me to give it up I want you to know that it was a blessing from God and not just luck And even though you hated me I loved you so much Now I hope the words I speak someone they will touch So when it is judgment day and I begin to have my trial Whatever the verdict might be somehow someway I'll smile By: Travis Osa ekpen.winnin
First of all who dosen't wanna win? but in the process of the winnin you run across situations where you have a choice to make, weather to win or to lose.. Its your decision and no ONE else can make it for you.. the winnin does not choose sides, and is made for any and everybody.. the winnin is a mind state and you determine your own outcome.................................. SO WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID, WHERE DOES THE MISUNDERSTANDING COME INTO PLAY? HOW CAN YOU CONFUSE WINNIN WIT LOSIN? YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT THE STATE OF ARKANSAS IS SO BACKWARDS TO THE POINT THAT YOU CAN PUT A MISUNDERSTANDING ON THE WINNIN? IF THE WINNIN IS UNDERSTOOD THAN HOW CAN IT BE MISUNDERSTOOD? IT'S LIKE GETTING IN YOU FEELINGS WHEN YOU KNOW YOU THE ONE IN THE WRONG..... LOL.... YOU HAVE LIED TO YOURSELF SO MUCH TO THE POINT THAT THE MENTAL MARAGE YOU PAINTED FOR YOURSELF LOOKS LIKE WINNIN TO YOU AND ONLY YOU.. WELL GUES WAT?..... YOU HAVE ABUSED THE WINNIN.... AND THAT IS THE WHOLE MISUNDERSTANDING... THE FACT THAT YOU TOOK SOMETHING SO POSITIVE AND YOU CALL YOURSELF PERFORMING IT EVERYDAY.... BUT TRULY DEEP DOWN YOU ARE SO MISERABLE... YOU CANT STAND TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE WINNIN... YOU TALK DOWN ON PEOPLE BEHIND THEY BACKS... YOU THROW ALL THE RULES ABOUT THE WINNIN OUT THE DOOR JUST TO WIN ON A SELF FULFILLMENT LEVEL... WHICH BRINGS UP THE MISUNDERSTANDING WHEN YOU SEE SOME TRUE WINNERS LOOKIN AT YOU FUNNY!!.. BUT YOU SWEAR YOU WINNIN... HOW CAN YOU BE WINNIN WHEN YOU NEGATIVE,UNCOMFORTABLE, CONFUSED, DEPRESSED, ANGRY, UPSET, AND SAD.... WHEN DID THAT BECOME WINNIN?.. COULD THAT BE THE MISUNDERSTANDING? .................. JUST LIKE REAL RECOGNIZE REAL, THE WINNIN RECOGNIZE THE WINNIN... AND I DONT RECOGNIZE ALOT OF YOU MISUNDERSTANDING WINNERS...... THE MISUNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE WINNIN IS THAT TO A WHOLE BUNCH OF LOSERS YOU MAY LOOK LIKE A WINNER BUT TO A WHOLE BUNCH OF WINNERS YOU LOOK LIKE A BACKWARDS, MISUNDERSTOOD, CONFUSED WINNER................... WHERE THEY DO THAT AT???????????
IF ITS A POSITIVE PROGRESS THEN I'M PART OF THE PROCESS THEREFORE I'M WINNIN AND THATS WHY YOU RESPECT IT
CUZ IF YOU A TRUE WINNER THAN YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THIS NOTE!
I fear things that seems crazy most people would say that it wouldn’t faze me I tried to fight it but it gets stronger like a cancer patient who cant hold on no longer no need to discuss the fears that have no mean but I have one fear that hunts my dream you might see me around school looking confident and never scared yet I can’t deny what I hide deeply in their something about it seems so unreal like a prey waiting to be killed like a baby rolling down a rocky hill like a wife with no affection like a father and a son with no connection like a sexual mate with no protection It’s like the devil showing it’s face in many different forms teasing, taunting, leaving my body Fouled and scorn the way it Manipulates is hard for my soul to break I wish it would end to leave my soul to awake to be whole again to be free if only I could get this darkness away from me how hard I’m trying I just need you to understand because my biggest fear is losing you to another man.
