A Poem by Metaphantom

I was inspired by driving to work listening to motivational youtube stations. I wrote this while sipping coffee in the morning.

Potential is a blank canvass to a painter
Potential is a ship on the sea without an anchor 
Success is realization of a predetermined worthy ideal 
Success is pursuit with passion, to further the will
Integrity is the courtesy to follow actions through
Integrity means you do what you say, say what you'll do 
Strength is that courage to try harder to keep up 
Strength is that die harder that fire starter no feet up 
No lazy days I been talented a long time had crazy ways  
Music and I linked up may be the way we raised 
Was in a lost and found warn out like a jacket  
Hung with hip-hop So long followed it to the casket 
And watched it rise again get live again 
Met a phantom made an anthem when I got high with friends 
Retire the pen? Nope! Not when the messiah is Dope 
And the higher I go I inspire the hope 
For musical genres to make love and create hybrids  
The music of many moments got you to open your eye lids 
Timeless -

Author's Note

As usual I'll say again, each line is a bar, each comma a pause, and I write music, so this is a {rap} very hip-hip inspired verse, but very motivational as well, what some call conscious rap, whilst telling a story.

And a story it is, spilled knowledge on electric canvases. Soulful and real.
