Like Me

Posted by | Film/Video, Poetry | No Comments

I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow, and the empty

A moment in the spotlight or limelight
forget about celebrities I’m the number one highlight
You can follow my life my every thought, every movement
so focused on broadcasting we lost sight of self improvement
See if you give everyone a soapbox then who is left to listen?
It’s just everybody yelling shouting for attention
If I lend you my mouth but forget about my ear
You’ll just keep shouting to the world but never stop to hear
And let me give you this small piece of advice
If you spend a lot of time listening you learn a lot about life
but is that asking too much in a narcissistic society
where people only think “please will you reply to me”
every status update has to be as important as the next
don’t want to be left hanging like waiting for a text?
yeah its pretty obvious what everyone wants
validation with that quick response
10 or 15 likes maybe 4 or 5 new subscribers
Stuck on an island of digital YouTube survivors
All fighting for the same thing – somebody to like us
I’m anxiously waiting for that phone to sing
to blow up and show up that notification ring
before my own insecurities succumb to this plague
every minute I’m connected minutes turn to days
until I can feel assuaged by your praise
It’s become like a heroin fix
I need more & more to calm me its a digital hit
I want all eyes on me
I need your attention
go straight to my online friends if i ever got a question
Jack, Jill & Johnny & umm who are you again?
See now the technology controls us..and we can’t go without it
So you say you will leave you will quit but for real we all doubt it
It’s just another cry the craving of attention
Hoping for those replies cause man I need those mentions
Talk to me please, hear me when I tweet,
like all my photos of the food that I eat
and this right here goes out to all my twitter peeps

I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow and the empty

This whole social media craze..
Has got everyone hoping for that social media gaze
It’s like we are all moths circling the same flame
ego so desperate for you to know my name
It’s now a level playing field and we are all playing the same game
Self obsessed with self put it in a frame
I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow and the empty

Everything I got

Posted by | 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

I’m forming structures/words and lines

I’m forming life/ lines/

that cross and intersect lives

 

I’m timing beats/ words and rhymes

I’m forming structures/words and lines

I’m forming life/ lines/

that cross and intersect lives

 

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
