War Of Minds: Taylor


When I want to come out to play,

And want to say what you really want to say,

You keep me at bay knowing that the truth will be heard and hurt,

But what about when they hurt you?

Say they care about you,

Share life with you,

Then all of a sudden their done with you,

You ignore your own insecurities and provide the worthless with security,

Heroism is your middle name despite me whispering that fame is the goal,

To reach the top and don’t let anything stop you,

The top of that mountain you’ve been climbing from fifteen,

Remember that?

When Tales of the Hood touched the world and you realised you did that,

Produced something you thought was a work of art and dealt with those who tried to dishearten you,

They told you writing book wasn’t cool,

But what was cool is that you took pride in school and found something you loved,

I knows that the Lord is sending you these enemies to keep your eyes open,

Tannika needs to understand that her eyes are always open,

She chooses what she wants to see,

Sees what she wants to be because she tries so hard to achieve what she once couldn’t be,

I teach her what hurtful lessons mean to highlight her meaning,

Yet I hate conceding defeat to Taylor,

The other half of me knows me better than I want them to,

I have to face the fact that my heart lacks darkness but can’t tolerate the heartlessness,

I’d always have heart even through endless darkness

But I embrace his presence because he understands that Tannika is always in the present.
