Everything I got

Posted by | March 9, 2014 | Film/Video, Poetry | No Comments

I put everything I got/my essence my being

to these words that I speak/ to these thoughts that I think

every syllable comes from my soul/

every part of me that makes me feel whole

 

I’m starting to understand /the power of my words

Back when I was in grade 4/conjugating verbs

A lover of language/Intelligence that led to anguish

But Reading books every day/helped me on my way

There are so many things/that can be done with my speech

So i keep rearranging the lines/til  the puzzle truly speaks

The story that I’m telling/is understanding and reasoning

The same words moved around/to generate different meanings

No matter how fast we run/time is what we face

Clear thought is/the space between time and space

and I’m needing time for space/to rejuvenate

creativity keeps my spirit alive/in this place

I’d rather write and give life/than run the rat race

when someone feels what you say/it’s such a beautiful taste

of reassurance and acceptance/my talent can’t go to waste

I can’t afford/to waste precious seconds in haste

 

I’m timing beats/ words and rhymes

I’m forming structures/words and lines

I’m forming life/ lines/

that cross and intersect lives

 

A few simple words/can make someone feel real special

and with that acquired knowledge/I keep my head level

the discipline I’ve practiced/in making the right decisions

gives me the conviction/to make these literary incisions

It gives me hope/and the ability to strive

To keep writing from my soul/and keep my spirit alive

It makes me untouched/and I haven’t changed much

I’m a rock//an impenetrable as such

If you ever need me/I’ll always be there

My heart forever open/and I’ll always care

the thoughts released/on this mic are free

from my mind to yours/is a special part of me

I hope that you grab them/cherish these life tested

ideas keep them close to your chest/I’ve invested

heavily with evergreen/cleverly worded configurations

steadily herding my minds/own complex machinations

 

I put everything I got/my essence my being

to these words that I speak/ to these thoughts that I think

every syllable comes from my soul/

every part of me that makes me feel whole

 

A Different time/A different space

I’m a different mind/I’m a different race

Abject discoveries/lovely mothering qualities

with a sense of forcefulness/a true dichotomy

its raw uncut emotion/presented scholarly

I withdraw my devotion/so you can come and follow me

I’m measured in my movements /towards destiny’s date

I’m feeling the improvement/as letters formulate

the voice I’ve been given/is such a powerful tool

I’d rather use its full potential/to wake up a fool

or pullback the wool/in the face of lies

Man its amazing the impact/you can have on other peoples lives

 

I’m timing beats/ words and rhymes
