Shakespeare: Sonnet 23
O, let my books be then the eloquence
And dumb presagers of my speaking breast,
Who plead for love and look for recompense
More than that tongue that more hath more express'd.
O, learn to read what silent love hath writ:
To hear with eyes belongs to love's fine wit.
No more drama from now on, I promise
To focus solely on handling my responsibilities as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughters
Make me king, as we move toward a new world order
A normal life is boring, but superstardom's close to post mortem
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Its not there ain't enough to share
It ain't fair never dreamed that he could be rare
To work my mind, when body's work's expired:
For then my thoughts (from far where I abide)
Fear not when, fear not why, fear not much while we're alive
Tupac: Ghetto Gospel
Don't them let me get teary, the world looks dreary
but when you wipe your eyes, see it clearly
there's no need for you to fear me
if you take your time to hear me, maybe you can learn to cheer me.
