Purify

 

“Even my conditioning has been conditioned,”

This is why all people have these pre-conceived notions;

We’re taught certain things at a young age,

And these ways of thinking go back to your parents’ ways,

Then so on and so forth, your condition has been conditioned,

And conditioned, and conditioned, and ultimately created,

Because this is what we use to keep ourselves safe,

From the evils of the world, the immorality that inhabits it,

But over time, over our years on this Earth,

We must be aware of these various conditions,

And cleanse ourselves of these seemingly pre-determined positions;

Once you have found this, you’ll understand that so many people need to make themselves pure.

But it isn’t their fault; it truly isn’t,

It’s just their deep conditioner has created a greasy outlook on this beautiful world.

The inspiration for this hit me so randomly. I was in bed and BAM, this hits. SMH. I felt the need to write this and I hope everyone truly understand what I mean with this piece.

Interpretations are welcomed, as well. :aww:


I also had a beat in mind and it's this masterpiece: Nujabes - Sea of Clouds: www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBYDcZ...
(One of the greatest beats I've ever listened to in my life.)

Thank you so much. :)

Lol, yeah, I think.......I think it's simply because late at night, when no one's around, your mind is allowed to go to a place where it isn't allowed to because during the day there's always SOMETHING you have to focus on. To think about, but at night, this is when I can really let my mind go off to a different place without any distractions.

This is great! ^ ^ When we're young, our parents tell us about the world, and the dangers in it. But as we age and experience more of the world, we tend to gain our own opinion on it. (At least, that's what I got from it. XD)
