is it intuition or anxiety..? what im feeling inside of me do i steed or do i hide from it intuition or anxiety im a black man from what i can see aint it natural to be fearful fear the system we live through intuition or anxiety maybe these are just karmic keys reminding me that three dollars and six dimes rule my life intuition or anxiety do i ask or ignore do i stay or do i go is it a yes or or a no intuition or anxiety how do ik the difference when my life has been in need of stitches when i thought it was intuition but it left me feeling so different intuition or anxiety my ancestors forced onto lynches now my peers forced into prisons i just wanna pursue my vision not worry about if im next on the list and... intuition or anxiety if i close my eyes i see two sides of me one telling me to stop one telling me to go... one telling me to die one telling me to grow... one telling me its okay the other screaming NO what is it that im doing to myself one step forward then two steps back 6 leaps forward and a wind sends me back intuition or anxiety its killing me from the inside out intuition or anxiety thoughts of having my face torn out intuition or anxiety i know right from wrong intuition or anxiety i can run... but i cant hide from me Video
