"I write about "OBVIOUS TRUTHS" and motivationally speak. I like to help show people ways on how to build and maintain mental strength by opening their mind.
*** I do not rap*** Spoken Word is what it is called

Addiction is a noun..
"Semantic Antics" by krystal rae
Open your mind
It's A
Some say affliction others infliction
To think contradiction is fiction
Just listen
Third eye with no restriction
"Too much of anything makes you an addict"
No self control
Is the distinction
That causes friction
Addiction is "temporary satisfaction"
A distraction
A mask to not deal with facts like an overreaction
Addiction is a magician a master of illusion
Understand your confusion
It's "temptation"
Temptation is designed to trick your mind when it's really just there to remind you of your mental strength
Let's rewind
Temptation is designed to trick your mind when it's really just there to remind you of your mental strength
Addiction is not something you're born with
It's a noun
That grabs a hold of you, you surrender to, it takes over you and controls you
Yea I know
But it's true
An addict is someone like you
Yea I know
But it's true
A question I'm thinking
When are "we" addicting?
Oppressed depressed death
Self-esteem living beyond our means
That bet we regret
Or how about our family with the utmost respect
Omit the excess
So are you an addict or a fanatic?
Yea I know
But it's true
The difference between an addict and a fanatic
Is a word called "habit"
As in automatic
Obsession if you want to get dramatic
Don't panic!
Understand we are all some sort of an addict
Be it diplomatic or combative your mind is pragmatic
use "Semantic Antics" as a mental tactic
to flip it you control the habit
To exceed to no degree
Is the card player who never leaves his seat
It's the drinker whose glass is never empty
It's the difference between you and me
