So last week Wednesday I had the pleasure of going to see some great poets recite some very inspirational poetry. After getting a taste of their sweet lyrical candy, I felt like drumming up a little spoken word poetry of my own.
Please enjoy, also a quick thank you to everyone that has subscribed to the blog… it means a lot.
I’m getting better with age and the whole world is my stage,
so with my next performance you’ll be shocked and amazed!
I’m going to light up your face, I’m going to light up this place
Cause I’m the star that didn’t know it, I’m that accidental poet
You see I’m ripping the lime light and God only knows if the times right
So while their exiting stage left, I’m laying down my plans best
I’m setting my sites high, aiming straight at the night sky
Flying past constellations, on this path of greatness I’m blazing
As I take sips from the dipper, my flow only gets sicker
And my stock must be rising cause I’m chillin’ with Orion
So on this meteoric climb, “excuse me, while I kiss the sky”
And like the late Jimi Hendrix, this feeling I have is stupendous
I’m riffing on Saturn’s rings, creating sounds that’d make nations sing
Almost like giving sight to the blind, I must out of my mind
I don’t have the gift of healing, but we all have the gift of feeling
So tonight when you go home, make sure that your loves known
Make sure that the pleasure’s good, and if you haven’t kissed em’ you proly should
Because your next performance, might be of the utmost importance
It might be about expressing your true feelings, maybe about a love that destroys ceilings
Maybe about a passion that burns bright for a cause or a heroic fight
Maybe bringing hope to the helpless, we all have gifts that we’re blessed with
My next performance might be words, constantly smiling as I drop verbs
