Famous & Infamous

Famous
My grey skies tell the best stories
Rainy days showed more glory
The sunny days are on vacays in a beach house with me snoring…
Life is too boring
Havoc and pain don’t cost to entertain
Well unless it’s 2cent in this love arcade
They all think you got it made
Just a sick form of torture
As your memory plays funerals at the alter
Trading off freedom for their preconceived notions
Gravity smacks you to the pavement cuz your nose wide open
High off of life until they steal your last breath
You gaze into the mirror only to see what’s left
Just speckles of yourself
As your conscience speculates and that cynic that your were starts to reincarnate
Reminding you of who are although they all call you great
Taking pop shots at the icon just to see if you will break…
And you do
Humpty Dumpty ass fool
You’re only as high as they lift you
Only as strong as your mental
Make a mistake they’ll forget you
Do something nice they’ll forgive you
Be who they see not who you are that’s how fame gets you far
Until you gassed out and let down phased out like a star

Infamous
We all want to be famous until they forget what our name is.
Our biggest fans become our toughest critics. It’s too easy to get consumed by who they want you to be, and if you allow them to win you can become seriously empty. Life grants you numerous opportunities don’t allow how others depict you to determine which ones you take. The shame is in buying in to the twisted vision believing that they’ll always be there. Fame can imprison us all, cage you into a status quo existence. Freedom is not only loving yourself but being yourself. Be a warrior of truth or you’ll be a worrier of lies… Theirs and your own.

    Great poem about life and going through the motions. Of feeling boxed in to what people want you to be, versus who you truly are. It can make you sick, depressed, leave you looking at a shell of yourself because you feel constant pressure to live up to an image that people want you to be, instead of them seeing you for who you are. On people taking and accepting only the parts of you that they want to see, and not you for yourself. Of folks not loving you until you’re only being and doing what they want.

    “Freedom is not only loving yourself but being yourself. Be a warrior of truth or you’ll be a worrier of lies..Theirs and your own” I think these are powerful lines speaking on being honest and true to yourself and who you are, no matter what. Otherwise, the consequences are that you’ll be stuck in that lie.

    Great poem of going through the motions of life. Of it seeming like people are boxing you in to be someone that you are not. It will make you sick, depress you, and you’ll seem like a shell of yourself because of it. Folks only taking and loving the parts of you that hey want you to be but not seeing you and taking you as you are. People steady trying to mold you into what they want, or how they feel you should act, instead of just accepting you. And also just being known or seen in a certain light but no one bothering to look beyond that to truly see you. Can be famous for showing a front that’s not a true representation of you. Having to be careful of not recognizing who you are to yourself anymore.

    I think the lines ” freedom is not only living yourself but being yourself. Be a warrior of truth or you’ll be a worrier of lies..theirs an your own” are powerful. You have to be honest and true to yourself an who you truly are at all times. Otherwise you’ll be stuck in the front that you’ve let others put you in.
