A Poem by Reflection
"

The Greatest..............

"

Born of the streets


he was 'The Rose That Grew


From Concrete'.


Built for war but chic


a Black Panther jumpin' out the


womb with his fist in the air


already knowin' defeat.


Delivered in the labor room of jail


bred to rebel


hard core with the mind of a


scholar postin' bail.


A complete baller


always down for the cause


a General, the pinnacle of a shot


caller.


Could knuckle up with the best and


when tested became a brawler.


Early in life his heart died


an introvert and in spurts


contemplated suicide.


Life really is do or die


even for you and I


the Jordan of rap his image


forever as big as the sky.


His legacy in place well before he


took his last breath


an orator of equality and change,


the epitome, even in death.


Wrote about hot slugs and slangin' drugs


angrily spittin' about the man with


passion, his fierceness gave hugs


of hope, he supplied the junkie


with what he wanted, illicit dope.


Hate was within the scope how do


you cope?


Listen to him spit before you push


the chair from under the rope.


A slippery slope, he felt the world's pain


a time bomb he made sure his life


in death wouldn't be in vain.


Every rapper alive to this day pays


homage


he's the greatest to ever do it,


Show me one who won’t acknowledge.
