In the Moment of Now

In the Moment of Now

By Deremiah *CPE (Mentor/Columnist)

I got lost

AWAY

caught in a miserable day

no better way to say it

I was living for the Future

whatever happend to NOW 

the moment you're given

FAILED time

when it's time to live-N

futuristic state of mind 

like the people next door

that I moved away from the year before

trapped by a trip that keeps ya trippin

mental slippin

sloppy livin

No turkey this Thanksgivin'

All because you refuse

To LIVE

In the Moment of Now

It's next week's yesterday

wishin you could pay the bill collectors

to stay away

two cheap to pay it all off

so you put it in lay-a-way

Got to get me a bigger car

tried to save money but I didn't get far

ls because you refuse

To LIVE

In the Moment of Now

Never learned that making pennies

makes sense

collecting pennies

makes dollars

what should it matter

when we're collectin' dead president's

why should I be concerned about setting presidence.

ANYHOW

I didn't know that saving money was a reflection

on me and my mentality

out-ta touch with reality

credit cards are the new slavery

it's easy to charge it!  That's not bravery.

self inflicted punish yo-self hallucinogen

got me hullicinating

don't have patiance to keep waiting

All because you refuse

To LIVE

In the Moment of Now

FANTASY TV

flaunting itself as REALTY-V

do you see what I C

Do people really live like that

in front of the camera

well they're acting like they're not Acting

when they're ACTING...like they're Actin'

give me some tinactin

and stop jocking around

Out-ter worlds controlling our

inner worlds

NOW

muzik controllin' our boys and girls

NOW

you're your own Inner-me

NOW

excuse me I'm on TV

NOW 

Do you believe me.?

Did you even get paid fo that video

do-Yo momma know

how you lookin' on the flo.

AND 

it's 

ALL   

because you

refuse

To LIVE

In the Moment of

NOW
