hey im afraid to sleep all the time
i sleep til almost two
cuz i cant get up to do what ive gotta do..
but its 2 past 3 and im way too awake than
i should be and i shouldnt let it get to me
i should let it be and go to sleep
and i dont even know what that is..
that nothing good will come from sleep
cept the morning - and day i will
and night - ill stay here and try to work ..
and try to get shit done that i couldnt
when i was trying to awake and feeling better
w/ a cig or a coke and try to sit in class and
try to give someone a laugh
try to stand in the sun and laugh at our sad city
w/ five year old girls at our ghetto ass 7-11 w/ the cashier
asking does your mama know where you is..
i dont care where she is buti want to leave
and give that guy his change
i usually cant but i felt i would
i couldnt let it get to me tonight
and i didnt give that same woman a quarter earlier
but shes just sitting there in front of the halfway house
and i know its that or a cigarette shes gonna ask for
but i usually carry neither..
bum off others or dont carry around money
