Fast as Life

Do you see life as lightning in a bottle,
Where you can slow down or speed up with a throttle,
Did it occur to you most have tried and failed,
Using drugs to imitate, but all you can do is duplicate,
Then life hits and you hesitate, hard enough
and then you learn to frustrate,
Imagine all you can be,
Imagine your life floating at sea,
Imagine you flying real high,
imagine your life as the sky streams by,
You hear the song of don't be a jerk,
Sometimes you think this stuff can really hurt,
Its all up to you the things you can do,
I'm not putting you down,
I just want your feet on the ground,
Be human and be real,
Don't go out and try to kill,
You aren't the target of hate,
Its ignorance they can't contemplate
And will not tolerate,
As you know as always i got your back,
Do your song thing while you got the knack,
Just remember your family really is here,
And not once did they ever stop this roaring cheer.

My nephew has started a carrier as a rap artist. But some of his lyrics of late have been on the dark side of where he started. I have always encouraged his poetic potential, so I wanted to let him know that I do listen, and I will always be there.
