One day I hope to see the tip of the three kings (yes, this is a Transformers reference, but hear me out). Three everlasting centuries old monuments to the work of man-- and woman-- to stand for something more. Perhaps, an idea, a belief, or even a fact. I want to discover the tree that led to Nirvana (not the band, the enlightenment) and see if it can help me with any of this teenage angst I got manifesting within. I will find the intersection of Lauryn Hill and Nas in the new era because to be honest I could use a little less dab-- just a little less-- and more simplicity in melody and inextinguishable flame. Like cmon "To Zion" mixed with "The World is Yours" may just be what this generation needs to expel its own demons into an abyss of bitter nothingness because there has to be more than this. Although, this right here is bread and butter, peanut butter and jelly, ice tea and lemonade, because this right here is the land that made me. One day I hope to find the balance between who I was, who I am, and the person I yearn to be.
