I Don’t Rap

Cars and clothes are cool, I guess They’re great when you want girls and sex It must be nice to be so dumb When every line you write is numb   Numb from all the things we feel And all the shit that makes life real Bigger houses, bigger banks You paid her tab? Hey … More I Don’t Rap

Love

A man is lost in a dilemma His love, his heart, his dearest Stella She dances, sings, does everything That causes men to offer ring   But there’s one knot tied in this chain He never thought he’d love again He was sent off, to war, you see And it was thought, that died, had … More Love

My Idols

My closest friends, they’re here, I know Em, and Fitz, and Frost, and Poe They do not sit and dine with me They reside in my mind, you see   We write, we wonder, work and play We converse every single day Whispers in the wind and skies The glint that’s deep inside my eyes … More My Idols

Necessary

NECESSARY I think I’ll write a poem that speaks epic truth, tonight It doesn’t matter if you tend to lean left or lean right Politics aren’t helping us, the gap is greater in-between We need to stop fixating on whose King or who is Queen We need to shift the focus to what matters, that’s … More Necessary

My Hands

Never idle, on the move, ink pours on the page The force that drives, a needed guide, is with me on this stage I try to be an optimist, but sometimes I’m consumed by rage Thinking of how things are done and how they could so quickly change Yes all the world’s a stage you … More My Hands

Written in Stars

Close my eyes, give my thoughts the reigns As the darkness outside, it brings the rains The bittersweet memory, it engrains Every value, love, regret; it pains   Open my eyes, and I start to write Blow the candle out and dim the light Pick a concept and my pen takes flight Thoughts hold the … More Written in Stars

Pyramid

Pain It fills my veins Evades the remedies Reaches all my extremities A life of love so temporary, I allude I opt instead for darkness, and solitude Pen and pad are all I want, they’re all I need Though I try to hide the pain, each day I grieve Search for calm and peace of … More Pyramid

No I Say

You want an album? No I say Cause I don’t rap, not any day I just write, my words they say Enough for you and me today   I get it, all these things I write They make sense when you read at night This world is filled with hate and fright And reading lends … More No I Say

Without You

So long they’ve waited, wandering Watching, waiting, listening For the next one, pondering Ever are they wondering   The wait is over, never more Alas, the knock is at the door Get up and answer, I implore You’ve found your long, and lost Lenore   The time has come, turn back the clock The stories … More Without You

Tough Love

When you’re bored, don’t bitch at me Just shut your trap and write, you dweeb Don’t pout and whine and stare and blink Just grab that pen and think and think   Come up with something folks will read And sell it so your dog can feed Don’t waste your time excusing the Stops to … More Tough Love

Don’t Wait

Oftentimes, I’ll look to see The person looking back at me Watching through a hazy lens At who that strange reflection is   Staring forward, several blinks Is he the person that he thinks? Does he do the things he speaks? Is practice coming from the preach?   My eyes still glare, this man ahead … More Don’t Wait

Free

Sitting, gazing, pondering Watching, waiting, wondering What things do others think at night? What lights turn on, when shining bright?   Some will think of gentle breeze Blinding true priorities Truth is veiled, this life of fun As fear resides behind the gun   Condemn them not, instead envy And long for their reality To … More Free

The Tiki Torches: 1

“‘Ay Carl!” “Wut?” “Ya think this in’ll work?” Strolling along the calamitous alleyways of the local Wal-Smart, Carl and Joe have a bit of difficulty deciding what torches to carry to their Klan march. Plop “There!” Joe shouts, proudly placing his newly acquired bug-deterrent torch in the basket, ready to check out. “Now just you … More The Tiki Torches: 1

For Better or Worse

Chapter 1 They’re so cute!” Looking into a giant glass terrarium at her small colony of pets within, a little girl tugs on her father’s sleeve to get his attention. “I know, dear. They’re very cute. Now get tucked in, it’s getting past your bedtime,” the father says. “But Daddy!” The little girl begs, peering … More For Better or Worse

Normal? I’m Not

Where my favorite people at? You folks know who I mean Calling weirdos, punks and nerds The strange, shy and obscene Come, together we shall join Embrace what others say Then smack their smugly normie face When they judge us for hearsay I say let ’em talk, don’t you? Let them follow all their “laws” … More Normal? I’m Not
