Moods & Moments: #ToniBraxton ‘Stupid’ [audio]

toni-braxton-stupid-thegamutt

I.Q.

Fighting against myself

Making decisions with a clouded mind

Not realizing why

The crime was mine

I’m crying on, lying on

Storytelling, trippin, back tracking

The stories unfolding, but not in sequence

Pulling characters out of thin air, just stupid missteps

That could cost a fortune

What a high price to pay

For the bed you made, just lay

But for how long?

The hands lurch forward a second then a minute then a year]

When?

Face it, conquer that fear

Just stupid.

Stupid to dream with no action

Stupid to leap with no momentum.

Break the glass and reach

With outward arms extend above and beyond

The longest of travels takes a step to begin

You have to for your sanity.

Intelligence quota exceeded.

Get out of your head and live…

‘Gone’

Trapped.
Behind the sterile walls
No room in my mind for more
No room on mine
Wandering, wondering when
If the light will shine again.

Gone
At least that what my mind says, but my body is still here
But where is here?
So full of thoughts, yet still
Gone
At least that’s what the wasted time says

Trying to keep it together
But failing at best
But my best was less
Less a factor of my own trappings of the mind
Or his sudden decline into insanity

The pool is full and
You are sinking to the bottom
Like a cinder block

Gone
At least that what the clock says
as the minutes become DAYS
Hours skipped
Falling, confused then I tripped

I gather my things and move to another place
How long determines how I feel.
Can I be stealth?
Flying under the radar, but still seen by one
Two even.

Still feeling
Feenin for a slice of blood orange
The mean citrus drips down my lips and onto
My tee.
Did it stain, or was that just me
Me looking for an excuse to be a mess

But no excuses needed, just gone
At least that what my mind says.

-Zam Zhinga
