Someone's Light

Someone's Light

A Poem by Justin Wright

Everything I said in this song is all my life
Reading another email my old fans use to write
I wrote an entire album I never put out
Looking back now I really let them down
I was too messed up and being sloppy
Still haven't forgot that time you robbed me
All I know is music should help somebody
To everyone else well it's just a dumb hobby
I can do it again cause I done it before
All I know is I don't wanna run from it anymore
This depression is gonna take me hostage
And there is nothing I can do to stop it
Guess I'll just smoke another cigarette
And just try to forget all this bullshit

What started out with just a pen and a mic
Never thought my words could change a life
All I did was write what I felt was right
Can't believe my darkness could bring someone light
And I'll keep writing and I'll keep rhyming
Maybe give someone the strength to keep trying
Help someone get through their darkest times
Help someone get through their hardest times

So make your monopoly money, you look sad
Another rapper talking about things no one will ever have
Can't be yourself no more, the world's too messed up
And you wonder why everyone in the world has to stay messed up
Gotta borrow money from Tod to pay back Tim
'Cause Joe done robbed my a*s again
Why you mad at me? Cause I'm telling the truth
And your personality? They'll rob you of that too
They probably sitting there judging this track right now
Mad cause they don't have the balls to put one out
You either die a hero or become the villain
Thank god there's still hope left for the children
Cause I cant trust no one, I don't wanna go outside
Can't watch the news without wanting to die
Everybody feeling my tracks except my hometown
I should have never quit, I realize that now
Guess It's always greener on the other lawn
Guess it's better to be silent then thought wrong

Amazing what you can do with a pen and a mic
Maybe your darkness can bring someone light
Or save a life, If you keep writing
It could inspire someone to keep climbing
Help someone make it through the hard times
Help someone make it through the dark nights

I skipped the cussing.. but other than that this is an amazing write
and you're very Correct I never felt that way and God has blessed me
with a Beautiful gift and the words help lift them up inspire them
what ever it is but it is god doing that I consider it is him Pouring the inspiration
and creativity through me.

I don't sing But I feel god blesses
me where I can make something
from nothing when I'm writing but
it is all him doing that.

Thank you for sharing. Kindred poet

This is really great. It is nice to read something that sounds so honest like you poured it all out at once.

Yeah, its such a lovely feeling, being someone's light. The most striking line in here was the one referring to how inconsiderate criticism causes people to retreat deeper into their shells, "guess its better to be silent than thought wrong". Ikr pathetic.. Brilliant poem.. :)

Holy s**t this is great. you never fail to impress me, dear friend! I love this piece, as much as I love all the others you've written, now, can I ask a question? is this piece truly what you've gone through? Have you made an album and not let it out? Are you in the music industry? (Im asking because Im tryingto figure out how to go about doing so, and hearing experiences from others, definitely helps!)

This is a very touching chorus to have in a song, I really love what you've said here..!

Haha, that is really funny... but im glad you were able to fix it :D
Whenever I read your poems and songs they remimd me that there is always a light at the end, you just have to keep walking to get to it.

First I must say that I am not a big rap fan. Secondly, I'd like to say that these lyrics are awesome. For some of this I could relate, and as a Lyricist myself, I find that lyrics are best written when you're not happy. Sorry you're depressed but as long as you keep using it instead of allowing it to consume you, you'll continue to spit out good lyrics.
