journaled into Hip-Hop

dear journal:

hip hop to me is a DREAM WITH A JOURNAL,

a journal with written poems about yourself,

about your health, or maybe about how you need help,

think of it as an autobiography,

written from your life's history,

a journal with misery hidden behind each page,

sadness that might lead up to madness with a slight rage,

a journal about your best or maybe even your worst day,

but most of all a journal that says what you want it to say.

-Tanner Cox

    "A journal with misery hidden behind each page". I dig that line very much. Though, I believe that those pages can be layered with hope & confidence too. Our glass should always be half-full no matter who tries to steal our drink. Nice job here. -Drake
