Long Story Short

Author:

Yenaros' mix of lyricism, detail, and style is a dangerous poetic force to be reckoned with.

Long Story Short

I’m tired is seeing people argue,

Fight, and bicker.

I’m out here trying to create a legacy, but

I’m losing to women trying to get thicker.


The same kind of hair.

The same kind of mind.

The same kind of problems.

Y’all swear y’all left ‘em behind.

People are so self-centered.

Please, just be kind.


Don’t get distracted by

The negative energy.

Don’t let them kill your vibe.

I’m doing what I do to

Bring the Light into a world

That’s heading towards darkness.

Please don’t be blind.


I’m not gonna hassle you to pursue

The Light.

But, I highly encourage it.

Follow your dreams and

Don’t be discouraged.


Do what’s right.
