Sorry everyone 4 keeping away for so long(i'm presently doin' my 2nd semester exams) hope ya'll like this though.I'm back n aint going nowhere no more.feel this.

A Pen Writes,

From Left to Right, From Dawn to Night

The Burden Of a Poet blessed with 3rd-Eye Sight

Whom peers at Whats Left

Trying to set things Aright

Cos Fools need "Two Brains" to 'Think Twice'

About Green & ICe That make the warmth of a soul turn Cold

Souls, Gone, Sold, Will Truce Unfold?

Are we all strung like Puppets ?

& Life's Like Gepetto?

So when things go wrong do we go on to Blame the Devil?

Cos we're not done creating new eras in the making

Took a Brush with Greed & Lust Till Karma becomes the Painting

God gave us the palette, Some see a Rubik's Cube

Confusing Dudes, Lack Solutions to the World we Mentally Fued

So why do we write???

i write because theres so much that is unsaid

the collection of the most intelect is the abode of the dead

knowledge left untapped ideas never seen the light of day

while the sun shines i write~its more pleasant than a roll in the hay

I write to clear my back

strapped with the wrongs of yesterday

to undo and pretell my children

yet to come,

not to lie on my grave and moan

on that day when I am gone

but to caress the pages of my mind

like it were an embrace of life

embedded in the womb of my thoughts

that began when the pen moved

from left to right

when I could not sleep at night

flip through, remember me as words

not soil.

I write to know my life

from left to right

my pen's ink is never blunt

from left to write

my wishes,dreams n hope abide

I write to exercise my rights

democracy...a fallacy?

I write to express my soul

not my fault when words

come out cold...

Nyc one Enigma!!

I write to calm the pain

And all the feelings hidden when I vocally explain.

Even though the feeling exposed is not of absolute truth,

You have a picture of how the dome of thought might have fallen;

How it’s architecture might have been mastered;

Rather than gulping the glimpse of how it actually is.

Poets exaggerate.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Who doesn’t know?

But at least the small scar on my forehead is felt.

And your heart, when I'm bleeding, melts.

As I portray my thoughts like the river Nile,

You may think I ain’t focused.

Hahaha

I’m not loughing,

It’s just that I‘ve been dwelling all over

Down the bush and in the mist

I’ve been thirsty for knowledge that I couldn’t reach

In the desert, back into the forest until I reach sea

In realty and beyond where only my mind can see

That’s the reason why I write, I hope that you see

Nice Enigma.

Might as well join in...short and sweet...hopefully

I write to discover poetic boats and flippers

that carry life across streams of thoughtful rivers...

rivers that breathe life into lifeless passages

bringing destruction to iterations of the brainwash prophesy

writing to teach that a black man's life is more than weed and hennesy



Jus enjoyed the whole flow and deepness attached to this thread's posts, props to all you people!
