And since life’s a gamble like the craps tables at Vegas
I freestyle my destiny, it’s not written in pages.
"I know too much, the government is trying to murder me,
No coming back like cutting your wrist open vertically,
How could a serpent be purposely put in charge of the country."
"What the fuck happened to reality-spitting rhyme sayers?
These days, everybody trying to be a thug or a player.
Where did all the real motherfuckers go in the game?
Bring back the breakdancers and graffiti writers with fame."
"And now you know why Technique, don’t fucking fall in love with people
Hold the person that you love closely if they’re next to you
The one you love, not the person that’ll simply have sex with you
Appreciate them to the fullest extent, and then beyond
‘Cause you never really know what you got, until it’s gone"
"Tell them the truth and they call you a traitor,
talk to them honestly
and they call you a hater."
"Even though we survived through the struggle that made us, we still look at ourselves through the eyes of people that hate us"
"Nobody loves you more than me, Cariño“‘s what the letter said "by the time you get to read this I’ll probably be dead, but when you left in ‘97 a part of me went Heaven. I thank God at least I got to know what love really was, but it hurt me to see what true love really does. ‘Cause even though we never made love you were all that there was, it was because I loved you so much that I had to make you leave. You made me doubt the way I thought, you made me want to believe and then I slipped up and I let you get close to me. It was hard not to be openly when people spoke to me, this is not the way I thought my life was supposed to be. Baby, don’t you see? I had a blood transfusion that left me with HIV, hope didn’t exist for me since late in 1993. I died a virgin, I wish I could have given myself to you. I cried in the hospital ‘cause there was no else but you. Promise that you’ll meet me in paradise inevitably, no matter what I’ll keep your love forever with me"
"I refuse to be concerned with condescending advice. Cause I’m the only motherfucker that can change my life"
"Her eyes are brown and beautiful, yet empty and sad. I used to talk to her occasionally, and she was glad."
