From Afar

from Vanessa by Art Morera



Yeah, yeah, uh
Uh huh

When the plants need to be watered I just go for walks
Skip rocks off docks, unorthodox third person
Seconds come first in Arthur’s clocks
Stepped forth and was welcomed back with a head stash kicked down like door stops
Write like I never left, more raps than every gift put together
Used to go off the grid and sift
If you catch my drift, send a kite
Feel the ghosts of friends strong enough to lift your spirits
countless windy nights
Nonsense quitter, seems nonsequitur, misunderstood
By everyone except their dog in his backyard peaking through the fence into the woods
That’s a good boy
Remember we were just innocent boys then
Before we picked our poison
And thought we new enough to flex our voices extra boisterous
Could buy dreams with coins in the bottom of wishing wells with koi fish
Guess it depends on just how the goings get
In the end, was life really so bad if you found joy in it?

Let me know
Let me know
Grass is greener from afar same way water is blue
My name is Art, that’s all I do

Sometimes I say ‘what up y’all’ to an empty room
Before I arrive and after I leave it’s swept with brooms
Death is the best time to thank anyone that fed you food
Birth is the only time there’s a tolerance for ineptitude
The Bible said Paul wins more in servitude
True, guess it depends on the persons you’re slanging herb to
A tear may be the result of what a new verse can do
I’ll burst into a nervous laughter when I imagine hurting you
Look at me then look at you, can you spot a difference
After life taught it’s lessons, none of us are God’s preference
Although A bad attitude can block blessings
When I got a question I run it by Jesus that’s a cross reference
Before I took the plunge I looked for a diving board
Got my van back she felt like a loved one on life support
Maybe it’s me hooked up to the machine, kept alive some more
Is the game of life ‘bout having fun or final score
Let me know

Let me know
Let me know
Grass is greener from afar same way water is blue
My name is Art, that’s all I do

The Godz
Felt good to say that
