To My Protector…

I know you’ll pull the trigger when I hesitate

They say he who hesitates is lost and so when i ponder morality and try to reason with my heart

I hope you’ve already placed distance between anger and me

This rage was subtle at first

Taking up space in the corner confines of my mind

I swear I’m nice but niggas wanna see the demons I slayed

Cut my own wrists to feel something so bitch be careful when you play

They say it’s the people that have overcome indescribable pain

that show the world the power of a heart untamed

a heart capable of compassion

A heart healing the insane

Gone mad lost myself trying to hear over the static

My protector I pray that my words can translate
