i write because without it who am I?

i write to appease my ancestors...Harry and Sarah

i write because writing is all i know how to do

i write because i love it and it makes me, me!

I ask GOD for enough time in my like for those he made me to touch

I swear I'll rhyme on this mic pace maker and crutch

I feel I owe at least that much to myself,....... my Paps

my Mom......, my kin, ......my friends......Blacks

...It's only an exploration,

alphabetic translation...

of ancestrous prints...

...on historical cave rocks,

left behind by my forefathers...

A complex ancient language

broken down into a million tongues,

then printed on scrolls...


and even virtual pages...

into your computer screens!

So... I write to Decipher.

the reason i write

is to reduce the weight

coz sometimes thoughts

get to heavy for the mental

and tryna supress them could drive u insane

at other times thoughts just escape through ink

and find freedom in the writing pad

I dont write

I spray paint

I reveal

I describe

I potray

I show

I give

but I dont write

for the words

they come from somewhere else

and the thoughts

they never seem to end

my emotions bear fruit in my labour

my labour is a blessing from my saviour

"a talent" some say

my inspiration lie in birth

and the wish of men to walk this earth

"a curse' I'd say

but I dont write

no I script Ideas every once in a while

I spit in ears by any chance of a smile

I drip in fears like many men before my time

but I dont write

no I breath life into a blank page

inject the mic with character

and live a life that lift my words

And the world is made out of words...

have nt been visiting for a while but after after reading through what you pips wrote i cant just say how it makes me feel,so i write .

i write because i am gifted

and my thoughts help quarantine sorrow

i write for peace for the soldier in pain

and the generals of shame

i write when angry and emotionless

try to express my feelings

poetry my therapy

through the prison windows

in my eyes, looking down

i see poverty strolling through the

neighboring streets leaving footprints

of hunger and sagregation.

so i write with teardrops of pain and pity

i write of the dark alleys in my mind

and the faces of the scene to the unseen

i write of love and the ones that i

feel and the one that i have seen

the ones that should be seen and the ones that made me sin

I write to release incarcerated thoughts from pens...

i write cause revolution had me summoned

my pen is the gun,my pad is the holster

together we channel words in between lines

tales of when the mind was fertilised by knowledge

encaged by thoughts,held captive by the pain of silence

so i write to paint light on the darkness,

to expose truth from the lies,

to shelter uncollected scattered thoughts,

and maybe one day when its said and done,

they will say i wrote because it was my divine purpose
