Have I Got Your Attention?

I wrote this a little while ago in response to one of my spoken word pieces. I believe in artistic freedom and I always try to write about my personal experiences. If i can’t write the truth then there is no reason to write. Enjoy reading and find me on Facebook.

Have I got your attention?

 

This is a line for every watery eye

Taste every tear that I turn into a rhyme

Speaking my mind, reap what you’ve sown

You planted a seed, but didn’t mean it to grow

Opinionated, stimulated on anger and hate

Agitated in response to bitterness and rage

I’m promoting peace but out provoking beef

Enjoying the hypocrite that I’ve been known to be

I’ve caught it all, what else can you throw at me

I’m just trying to build a career and write poetry

 

So if you don’t like the shit I write about

Don’t be one of the idiots I write about

 

Before you accuse me of profiting from hardship

Remember I wasn’t the one who asked for it

I didn’t provide the spark that ignited the fire

I didn’t plan to become such a passionate writer

I didn’t choose to sit and vibe to hip hop beats

It’s just connected when I thought I’d lost me

I didn’t ask for the pain that all threw my way

But I dealt with it all by writing away

And it was right in a way, it kept depression at bay

I’m well aware you don’t agree with all I say

 

So if you don’t like the shit I write about

Don’t be one of the idiots I write about
