I write broken words in straight lines

I write pure wisdom onto littered minds

I write meanings to life and love

I write healings to those on death's door

I write so i can read

I write so i can lead

I write,

the flow of ink

Steady and thick

little twist and turns

the way i think.

I write

not the way i behave

the way i feel

an extension of me

the person you'll never see!

I write

Why? i guess i really dont know

because once i put down my pen

on and on it goes

mind of its own

I write

Because my heart has no voice


My pen is a mic

I write to breath the air

that the ignorant

don't know is there.

A break from the walls of hell.

I write to inhale.

I write to experience.

I'm free to dare, to imagine,

to feel..the difference

between loving innocence

irresponsible sex, being a virgin.

It makes me a poet,

so i write for it.

Its my identity

My name, if I'm nothing less,

in this world of fame,and fine vanity.

I write to please you.

To prove to you the genius i fancy.

I feed you ideas

and hide behind poetic license

I curse at will, and say Nigger, for my pen is free..


..and my mouth is bound.

Till the moment my doubt is mouthed

I'm a believer.

My heart mends with every word.

Forever read. Rarely heard.

I write to perfectly balance thoughts on my mentals...

...as ideas drown into the depth of my metaphors,

their screams awakens and breaks sick concepts loose

...still I write

screams of scaremongers flow through our mind passages

as they tap into the bondage that our minds are in, they create carnage

they give a gleam of possibilities in art destruction through a stream of outrages

they manipulate art through radio waves, pen and page

We need to start a fight!

they consider poetry to be the art of punchlining

"blow apart" and thus grow the art -- people say and expect greater

with bated breath they await your next writing,

failing to see that poetry is more than pen and paper.

to the mental arsons, copy-and-paste is the function...thinking which lines are we quoting

poetry aint my source of income, so niggaz fck your comments! with words, i'm a fighter!

ting-ting, 1st round...jab-jab then uppercut -- "beat it down!" elders scream, "beat it down!"

oblivion in poetry bleeds from my hands, heart and brain

left step then right, it's escaping TeeZeR, get it in a lock-down!

you know how, "but it needs to bow!" screams an elder in pain

get reiforcements TeeZeR, get them to state their reasons now!

I write for expressions in different dimensions

with the pen on my left it's: Why do you write?

with the pen on my right it's: write you do,why?

so with both limbs I write,viewing life in different angles

fusing rights and wrongs on hungry sheets of papers

writing, because I lack a gun to do the right-thing

so me writing should be seen as the right-thing

I write from my heart, which is between my limbs

so with both limbs I write, so that words can understand

its relevance in my life, a life filled with questions

I write from the writhe my feet suffers from shoes

the shoes I wear trying to feel what my victims feel

so with knowledgeable feet as pen, I write on streets

this I do in a bid to change the world to a better place

only to discover that sometimes I write on sea shores...

...maybe one day I shall have a better reason for writing...maybe!

I write to let my words live long after my thoughts are dead.
