NO.

NO.

A Poem by 20 Locks - Hustla Extraordinaire

NO.
I will not be Silenced or Hushed
My Art will not grow Quiet
Or Absent or Still
I will not Change who I am
To appease your Ego or Will.
I will Stand, Steadfast and True
To Myself, the World and those Who
Are Artists like Myself
Slandered, Lied to, Lied About
By Liars and Manipulators,
Haters and Ego maniacs
Playing on Sympathies of the Good
Taking what they could never Create
And Silencing the Beauty
Of valuable Imperfections
And Artistic Expression
From Beautiful Souls
They could Never Touch
Or Fathom in a Million Years
NO.

Very nice use of words. I liked the energy and the drive in your words. Art should be innocence, true and real. Never controlled. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Very nice and lyrical work. Stands strong as a statement of "I am me and me is my decision."

:) ........................ i hope you feel better now ;) people, some people, do try to change or criticize what they simply can not pigeon hole into their self imposing ideas ... pity ... i think they are best left to themselves if at all possible .. simple avoidance techniques work just fine .. and if not possible .. a polite listen and then, as me ol' Da use to say "Gene ... its like water off the ducks back." God bless me Da
