A Poem by Not here

What do you think? I'm trying to get back into my groove.

What do you call this? 
A breakup or a breakthrough?
A bulls-eye or a big miss?
A broken record or just new?

Some say I'm a masterpiece,
I just smile at their flattery.
Some say I'm a big disaster,
so why do they stay long after?

Emotions like fuel running through my veins;
Try to hold me down but it won't sway
my furious funneling of fearlessness for
anything that stands in my way. I'll bust down the door. 

I could be what I choose, when I choose, how I say it.
I'm tired of living in fear, hiding from daytime.
It's about time, overdue time, that I start rhymes
instead of sitting around, it's time I say it and spray it.

Rhyme schemes? Forget rhyme schemes.
This is my time, I'm my own king.
I roll through, just bowl through
any pin in my own road too.

Cold days, I just roll plays;
see Shakespeare, in his old years?
Didn't slow down, didn't take a bow,
until all of his work was finished. "Wow!"

Now me here, I'm no Picasso,
even if my work's similar as snow.
Snow flakes are just milkshakes
on steroids without all the taste.
But they're all so unique you say?
Just like my works I referenced, aye?

Agree? Disagree? Somewhere in the middle?
I'm sorry I can't argue with you or even piddle.
I got work to do, things to write, stuff to see.
Places to be, if you know what I mean.

So give me that mic, that pike, that stick.
Watch me stick the landing jumping out of this pit.
It's time for a breakthrough with a little bit catastrophe.
See ya when I land, but for now, this is all Me.

I admire anyone who has enough guts to speak to the world out loud.If they try to bring you down give rm the best of your punches.I liked this just because it was simple enough to decipher.No fancy metaphors to screw my mind.It was clear as glass and i had the power to cut through my emotions.I don't believe in just surviving its in thriving that i believe.And in the way it dripped with confidence i really liked it. Good to know there are people out here who don't succumb but have power enough to fight the inevitable. (y) *keep writing* :)

Very interesting poem ... an internal conversation gong on in this poem :-)

Posted 7 Years Ago

alot of it's like freestyle

with a lot of emotion and energy
it plays to my favorite style of internalizing the self

all the while its like a conversation with the audience

very catchy too btw
