I have been listening to Nines new album (One Foot Out) recently and it connected with me on a different level . I never thought I would be able to write poetry, I guess it just came from the heart.
One foot in . One foot out.
Constant battles in my mind .
I want to get out bad . It’s all I think about .
It’s all I work towards .
But it’s like I take 1 step forward and 3 steps back , and this continuous routine makes me scared to move forward in the first place .
Do you know what it feels like to work so hard to get away and make positive changes.
Getting higher and further away. You think life is getting better
For just one thing to drag you all the way back.
Now you have to start all over again.
It makes me scared to progress because of how far I may regress .
I don’t want this. I don’t want to see my mother crying over me everyday.
I don’t want to always have to look over my shoulder
I don’t want to always have to contemplate if this may be my last day if I see the wrong person
All I have is my dream
but I guess I’ll always have one foot in the hood and one foot out .
