ShonniB said...

Came to the show in New Orleans ....thought front row was too close, it was PERFECT! Man the composition is amazing. The stage, lights, etc. I'll be coming out to Cali to catch 2 more shows and support my man Jay #1 bass. P.s. Kendrick Lamar ..... Enough said. We have to get you to come to bama (university of Alabama) 16,000 seats need to see this.

Chapter 3- Just Listen

( Pieces )

DIARY LINES

I find myself sitting here alone
Patiently waiting for something
I thought I could be standing on top of a throne
Yet I'm back going in and out of my ways
My emotions have been carrying on for days
And Shortly after when Life starts to fade
All I get is a mixture of pieces
Scattered all around me
Just a mixture of pieces
That would be impossible to put together on my own
I began to think that each piece is everything that I know
While I'm laying in my bed
Though, many times I just think that this shit is all inside of my head
Sweeping out many emotions that I kept with an old broom
I'm not too sure of what else to do..

All I feel...
Is My spirit being caged inside of the walls of my own room
I've become very issolated from the outside of my world
I'm afraid that the people of my surroundings wouldn't understand me as for being that only girl
People get confused cause I have feelings that leads on so strong
Which only led me to thinking that everything that I say is completely wrong
So I avoid every part it, begining very absent to my deep thoughts

I treated it as if it didn't matter
And I still got tears coming from underneath the past
But I'm still at a Tear drop from the last

It's funny how Emotions always play tricks on me
But it's crazy how my mind has become my very own enemy
I sware the strangest things have been happening these past weeks
And I can't seem to figure it all out

I'm for sure that I got pockets full of dreams
Though All I see is myself traveling on a lonley road
And Smeared Tears running against my skin
While a different atomsphere is seeping in to my pores
Only because I'm trying find a life out there with so much

But instead
I find my self sitting here alone
Waiting Patiently for something
And right in front of me all that remains
Is the same mixture of pieces


Written By: Forever Byrd
P.S. Just something I wrote in my Diary, it's not a poem,
it's not a letter, it's just words that are coming from emotions.
I thought it would be something nice to share.

Well, Take Care

Brittney Byrd Ridley said...

I always thought that I’ve had a wild imagination, I like to write in my diary and post it on
Here because it just makes me feel better. October’s very own is like therapy for me. It’s a place where I can just really releas everything that I have inside of me. I’m just at stage in my life where things are not Going to well…and even though there’s a lot of people on here that doesn’t understand…I know that there’s that one person out there that does… I sware it feels like I’ve Been searching for a person that can just read me or understands me but every where I go it’s like…everybody has a somebody, except me…. Sometimes I really feel like I’ve been running around in circles and I still end at the same place. I feel like there’s pieces of me scattered on the floor and I’m right there looking at those pieces and it’s sad in a way, because those pieces is everything I know…everything that contains inside of me..and those
pieces is up made of the world that’s around me. Sometimes I feel like I’m stupid cause years has past and it seems like till this day forward I still struggle to figure out how to put those pieces together.

Drake looks so healthy! I'm almost inspired to run on a treadmill and only eat salad... almost.
If I wasn't a broke college student, I would've made the trip last weekend to New Orleans to get a glimpse or something.
Enjoy the rest of the tour :)

When are you coming to Denver?

maayrahh said...

It's mean how drake Actually had some of us travel almost 10hrs since his LA concert sold out , just to see him.. But he didn't even mention one thing about the concert last night neither did it show on the tour dates.. yet he did of every other concert he had.. I love him and his music.. But that was just kinda left out. I understand he has billions of fans , and can't satisfy all of us . But that 10hr drive was a lot for not even one tweet of it lol

But i love you so much!!

maayrahh said...

I think I'm obsessed with drake lol like I said I drovet all the way to UC Davis just to see him and I was trying get tickets for his last show, I found some tickets for the front rows but my bf didn't let me :( I think I'm more into drake than him lol Just like every other fan I hope I can meet him

Anonymous said...

DRIZZY, u probably won't read this but i really wana say "Take Care" was my favorite album EVER...please don't stop making real, honest, unique music. remain you. i love how different your music style is and how its not like the typical shit thats on the radio that people listen to. you're real. and even tho you're cold to people sometimes, you're so honest in your music. you're a beautiful talent, thank you.
