In no fashion have I lost my passion for the pen
It's just that lately life has been a lost less inspirin
To tell you the truth trials and tribulations is very tirin
I gotta play a little game of gimmick and gunfirin
I'm not aspirin to be any lower or higher than,
I get equal as in eye to eye again
I'm the truth, I'm complicated I'm all ready but try again
I've got to die once to never ever die again
And what I believe within I engrave within my skin
And one thang that I ain't is a saint without a sin
How could there be a now if there never was a then?
That is unbalanced just like the yang without the yen
I am distinguishably deeper as opposed to the paper-thin
And I breathe oxygen, and you rhymin bout rocks again
You stagnant, standing still enough to feel the world spin
I'm beginning to smell the end in the path of the blowing wind
Hopefully I'm fortunate enough to spend forever with a friend
I'm slow dancing with destiny every day until then
When I first got my big break I said that I would never bend
And discredit my character to keep up or contend
And my belief beat baseline secrete such a special blend
I am not like them at all and I cannot pretend
I am not like you at all and I cannot pretend.

We all have it. We can't avoid it. But we all have different ways of dealing with it. We can be stressed by family, friends, work, or that dude in the car that just cut you off. We can be stressed by that female who annoys you so much that you started ducking her calls. We can be stressed by that dude who you KNOW aint good for you nor is he good to be around you.
We can be stressed by rising gas prices...a war that shouldn't be...and high food prices. We can be stressed by these damn bills that WON'T go away.
Stress is here. And it's here to stay. The question is...how do you cope with it? Where do you go? What do you do?
