Spoken Violence

Premeditated thoughts, I'm lost because gravity fought
Derailed the train off the tracks, because the railroad I crossed
I knocked, on the door to glory and it shut right in my face
So I run to metaphors, 'cause on a blank page, I feel in place

Moral of the story is, I'm more than what meets the eyes
A poet under the skin, I learned as a kid and began to rhyme
Though broken times, I keep my book of rhymes as my protector
My guardian angel is alive, he's living with my neglect-or

Victorious over rhythm, but it seems I can never please
Questioning myself, I find myself on my knees, I breathe
The trees, quit recycling oxygen and recycle my life
It's like the more struggling I go through, the more I multiply

I let the ink bleed through my wounds, 'cause it heals my scars                
And as my consciousness fades, I see constellation stars
Though every bar, I'm aware and living in a broken silence
Pick up my pen, and kills rhymes through Spoken Violence
