Here's a picture I just painted of time (x3)

Here's a picture I just painted of time
But I'm not gonna watch it dry
Like a Salvador Dali of the rhymes
But I'm not gonna dally wit' my time

You shouldn't be worried bout the time
You should be concerned wit' your hands
And what your hands do wit' you time
Hope you're not sittin on your hands

Then you really wastin' your time
Might as well be sittin' on the john
And have time slip right through your hands
Down the drain
In no time...

When we talk about the sands of time
Better just to bury your hands
Better not to bury yourself
Then you'll never have time on your hands

Cause the Sandman hates Father Time ya know
And Father Time doesn't wait for any man
So don't lie too long in the sand
Or you're gonna get sand in your eyes

And you're not gonna see how the hourglass sand of time isn't on your side
So don't let time pass you by
Or you might as well pass away

So you either gone pass up the time or use that time to find passageways
To put good use to your hands
Now's the time to draw a line in the sand

His debut album, Circa ’16, emphasizes mindfulness and has even been deemed as "meditative rap" by some.
Whatever the label Ven is definitely a unique artist with unique sound.
