This Is Me...

This Is Me...

A Poem by Tha Wind AKA VERBAL OX




in a previous life
i was poetry.
now...
im a poet.

before that
i was Luv.
so i...
give nothin but.

in the first days
i was life
an Nature
was my wife.

so now
i live by

"luv livin life".

&...
that girl
Nature
holds...
such a
sexy hold
over me
&...im
always inspired
when eyeing her.

i...
spand across
what we
call time.
& he...
use to be a friend of mine
b4 he started wasting mine

i remember
just
catchin the sky
blankn out...
& ill be like
"YO...man you spacin out"


for 2yrs
i was a circle.
guess thats
why...
im well rounded.

tried to be water
but wasnt ready
for that yet.

now...
im tha wind
doin elohims work
from the city of the hawk.

yet...

be leery of
how you talk.

an careful
not to gawk
where these
bobby drake's walk.

this is a lesson
my streets teach
to be taught...

tha wind.



THE PREAMBLE


im a man...
i am...a man
conceived by man & a woman

given birth by a woman,
my first home
was a woman,
so...when i get back in
i feel at home.



on the birth of
my day
pushed through
the hallway
i felt luv.

a window opens.

she gives me...
"LIGHT"...

so shall i give
with my life...

& This
is me...

built by man
powered by god...



4 fingers an a pen poetry...

Ab extraordinary flight of language. amazingly musical.. with inspiring scenic thoughts hidden within the phrases. I think of miniature thought bubbles over the head.. bursting towards the eyes of any passing visitor!
