    I Miss You Danny.

    I had this coworker that is a good friend of mine. He was significantly older than me, old enough to be my dad. How did we end up at the same bullshit job? I don't know. Together we made work a little more interesting. We would tease people to get them to laugh. From the...

    Different Ways

    I've lost friends in my life.  Some I've lost to death, which killed a small part of me at the same time.  Some I've lost to time, and I felt a part of me whither away as they whithered from my life.  And some I've lost to anger, and differences between us...

    .most (if not all) of them I guess. How do I say this.. I always knew that people change, that both the way we view them and the way they view us change over time. However, 'knowing' and 'experiencing' have different impacts. Due to my country's failure of an educational system...

    we would hang out pretty often, but soon I was only invited when another person was needed, then I stopped being invited. I now have found a new group of friends, but I think the same thing might be happening again.

    Well looks like I'm done here.

    Rap just ain't the same since these ******** took over the rap game and they don't spit that well. I've lost my closest EP sister, JadedDivinity. Jade left for no reason, and she was all I had left. So it looks like my legacy is done. So farewell guys
