Abe must write because, by doing so, he is able to play god and all the morons receive just retribution.
And because everybody lives up to his (high) expectations and if they do not, they dieeeeeeee.
Conclusively, this will make for a better world.

Keep Ya Head Up, Keep Your Head Down

Dear Hakeem,
I see your struggle and it can't be easy
Seeing everyone around you doing big things
Feeling like your hardwork might all be vain
Wondering when you'll get your own break.
Keep ya head up
It's yours if you keep chasing
Keep your head down
Because their story is not yours.

Dear Leanne,
You still love him but they all hate him
They say he ruined your present and future
But your hell-bent on rewriting history, with him
If anybody can change him, you're sure it's you.
Keep ya head up
One day it'll all make sense
Keep your head down
Because they can't see how you feel.

Dear Theo,
I know it doesn't make sense now
Nothing much does when you don't know the end
Today is today, make of it what you will
Or what you won't, it's all down to you.
Keep ya head up
You might find something worth living for
Keep your head down
Because glittering gold will only serve to deceive.

Dear Maria,
I can only wish that you hear me
It's all about you, all about you
Kay needs you more than you'll ever know
But your broken nail drowns all her woes.
Keep ya head up

You can still change your ways
Keep your head down
The mirror won't run away.

Dear Reader,
This could be about you
Or maybe about me
You can look at you, and I'll look at me
In hope that at least one of us will find, and see.
Keep ya head up
where there's a will, there's a way
Keep your head down
Watching others will only lose your focus on you. 

Would love to know who your favourite character is, who you most relate to or if you recognise any of these characters in other people... Let me know below!

Currently listening to: Boyz II Men - Motownphilly

  1. Dear Maria captured it best for me, an excellent verse.
