Grindin'

That daily struggle is a struggle.

Getting up everyday, making things happen, staying close to the people you love.

Ain't no manual on life.

The Bible comes close, but sometimes even it can't soothe a weary mind.

Arguing 'bout this, fighting 'bout that, trying to make time when the only one with that power is God.

Grindin'

The Clipse don't even know.

World feelin' so heavy, you laughing at Atlas talkin' 'bout, "That nigga got it easy."

What y'all know about grindin'?

Crazy world, full of violence, full of hate, make you wanna get your Marvin Gaye on when he went through his changes.

I see why some folks go crazy.

Just grindin'.

It's been rainin' so long, sunshine seems like $1 gas...

Distant memory.

Economy down, crime up. Babies dyin', politicians lying.

Nothing new under the sun.

Some folks say the end times are near.

Other folks say they're here.

I'm just looking for an ending.

Hopefully a happy one.

And the Deacon gives a weary "amen" to all that too. Wish it were better, but we got to deal with what we have, eh?

Thanks for the comments readers, I appreciate the feedback.

That was just the mood I was in at the time. Life gets that way for all of us sometimes. Thank God trouble don't last always.
