A friend

Who else, if not a friend,
turns up to rap and rend?

Quick Freestyle

I'm barely staying alive 
Staying alive for sorrow
Together we for tomorrow 
Mixing tears with tequila

Sippin on the tequila
And I hope to see ya
I'd hate to be ya
Adios!

Bull

You must think me a thick skull
You thought you had me too
Yeah, honey, skip to your own loo
Cause this one's already full
Of your brown nosing, so shoo!
Cause this cow will call you on your bull

Laugh and Cry

7/11/15

Go ahead laugh and cry
And if you'd like to ask me why

Don't let time pass you by
You have to try
Regardless of if you want the whole thing or less than half the pie
Remember you can't go back in time

Lyrical Crimes

This ink switchblade scraped the page
Imbibed by my musical sage
This isn't just a love sick cantata
A heartless melody, baby hold that fermata
Oh look out! More lyrical crimes
Hear me butcher these rhymes?
My murderous hymn in 4/4 times

NURSERY RHYME

Man, I nurse this rhyme
And it ain't even sick
What is the meaning of goldbrick
Got hit in the eye, with a rubber pie
Must be in kind, out of my mind
I don't believe in revenge
Just give me affordable health care

Proceeding

5/20/15




No longer dreaming
Just proceeding
Without cheating
I am achieving
More than I ever was believing
Every single evening

Now my impressions are leaving
Even more meaning
To other human beings
While I am still breathing

POETRY

Just to write lines
    And heal your pain
     Just to read lines
       And throw your strain
        Just to think a while 
        And shape the world
         Just to read and walk the miles
          Just to relax and meet the dead
           Just to say poetry will never fade.

starstruck

First there was fireworks
then there was stars
couldn't think of anything else
but her smile. stars struck stars
and all I can see is the
glow of her beauty;
with rain instead of sunshine
it was all so divine

Now look

Back in the 90s shit was real, Used to have dope rhymes to seize a record deal, As police brutality caught reveal Now look how we veer with one hit wonders, Weak rhymes will get you there, We hid to the underground as the government took the wheel. Written: 10/7/15

B25-POEM 27 THE THINGS YOU USE TO DO

POEM 27 THE THINGS YOU USE TO DO 




THE THINGS YOU USE TO BRING JOY INTO MY LIFE. 

NOW YOU SUCK ME WITH IN MY HEART WITH A BREAKING KNIFE. 

THE THINGS YOU USE TO BRING A SMILE TO MY FACE. 

NOW YOU MAKE ME FEEL DEEP INSIDE LIKE LONELY SPACE.

Father Forgive Us

Oh, Father forgive us for our ignorance,
we're just misdirected children
searching for significance.
Blindly stumbling, tryna grasp our purpose
but our hands are too bloody and calloused.
We'll sell our dignity tryna catch these dreams,
only to realize we got cheated. Cuz characters
worth more than cash and even harder to gain back.

If I Suffer Defeat

If in my journey to achieve my goals 
I crumble or stumble an lose my soul,
My close acquaintances will know I gave 
it my all 
and know this was only a pitfall,
Without No father-No money- No choice-No guide 
I only act towards my voice inside
If it leads me wrong an down a dead-end
I'll learn from my mistakes an try to comprehend

young neglect

Oh, clear sky you speak to me.
Let me bask in the sun and weep to thee.
Stumbling across the pavement,
Thinking “this is my home” if I can’t pay rent.
Take me sauntering down the street
On a surreptitious retreat 
Where no one knows my name.
I’ve seen the best of my days slip past me.
I would have said that “I’m not fine”
But no one asked me.

I Don't Need Drugs

The only thing that is in my bong
is my gift of poetry and song.

Drugs are for thugs
that's hell in a nutshell.

I don't smoke
and I've never done coke.

Believe me
I know that I don't always tell thruth
and that I like to lie.
There has been enough brains fried.

Poet till I die.





Dedicated To All The Victims Of Addiction.

Old Dude Rap

Poetry ain't words dribbled out on the fly, 
It's execution, prostitution of the me who am I.
lettin loose my mongoose of thought provoking, while others be chokin,
gettin all Seuss you just some cat in a hat, 
Philosophies of Socrates rap your brain around dat,
Don't let dem big words confuse you, this all precludes you, from being 100, thats where you blundered.

Here, There, Everywhere

8/14/17


Up in the air
Here, there, everywhere


All around
Way down in the ground
Inside and outside of any town

Amid each valley
Within any alley
In every nook and cranny


At a standstill or on the go
High and low

Far and wide
On either side


Throughout the land
And beyond what we've been able to understand


The world over
At places higher and lower
