Just A Note To Say....

Well college life is in full swing. I'm already exhausted, running on -5 hours pf sleep per night. As such, my mind isn't turning out rhymes like it usually does. As a result, here's another flashback from my shoe box of old writings. This is the poem that started my writing back up after I was uhmmm "greatly encouraged" by my mother to stop writing raps at age 13, I think I was 15 at the time of it's authorship. I'll be back to writing "postable" lyrical rants within the next week or so, but until then, hope you enjoy this!

Note To A Girl

I want to draw something artistic
But it ends up a 3 year old's crayon picture
I want to compose a beautiful song
But it ends up a 4th grade band project
I want to buy you something thoughtful and romantic
But instead I'm wandering the aisles with no clue
I want to write you a poem about your grace and poise
But it comes out sounding like just a lot of noise
I want to do a million things to make you happy and show my love for you
But in the end when all I've tried keeps falling through
All I've got is my words to say "I care about you"
