Rain Tap-tap-tap Silence, is all I hear While I lye here with my eyes closed It’s a new day Tap-tap-tap Is what I listen to as I lay Like a sad love song in its own way So, my thought collaborate on a fresh poem With the smell of the outside after the rain, But not today Today is just grey and uninspirational Drizzle and cold air with thoughts of despair So I roll up, to put me in the mood A false hallucinogen An altered state of unconscious reality Tap-tap-tap Of bluish grey drops That splash into puddles of shattered dreams Makes me wanna drink some Herbal tea with Hennessey Strange whispers of dark poetry Lyrics and wisdom that’s spiritual minded Now I realize why diamonds are blinded Tap-tap-tap I jump up and dress myself Today is there day I make my mark So I travel with lyrical thoughts of greatness On the train it’s plain to see That a lot of people feel just like me Unsmiling faces and unfamiliar places Generic clones of who they once were And would be if society didn’t rob them of their dreams With the reality of the world Tap-tap-tap I walk up the place to be and tell them who I be The featured poet but he doesn’t believe me Makes me wait in line with the rest of the nobody’s Like a average Homosapein But as soon as I get in I hear Ladies and Gentlemen Lyrics and Wisdom Silence is what I hear After the claps and cheers Time to be put on the map So I begin with, Tap-tap-tap
