Post 17 of 27- A Date With Fate

I think this might be a big mistake
These talents and skills
All mine to take
And use however
I feel is right for all's sake

But how do I know
Do I rear back and let go
Or should I tame this beast
And culture it's flow
I've got one chance
It seems all too easy to blow

I can pierce your sad rants
Make them sound like dog pants
Stack my rhymes with yours
The quality scants
My lyrics tango
While yours learn to dance

Maybe it's not my place
To show others how to trace
The genius of all those past
Imitating grace
While we remain
Poor substitutes of fancy lace

Perhaps I'll stay humble
Not worry about whether I fumble
For on this artful path
I'll sometime stumble
Maybe I'll keep still
And bear up without grumble

I suppose I'll have to wait
One day I'll know what is my fate
I'll figure out this road
And set upon a gait
I just wish it was now
Not at a later date

Post 16 of 27- Waiting On Inspiration

So bored
This dull maroon
The carpet staring at me
I suppose
It's trying to escape
The harsh glare from the light
Ugly wood
Grotesque twists
Creating a semblance of table
Receptioner sits
Chewing horselike her gum
Across me
An overstuffed hedge
A chair of pattern awfully floral
Fake green
Leaves encircle me
Faux plants to my right and left
Who knew
Among a waiting room
A dreary inspiration was here to find

Post 15 of 27- 1,200 Views!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so woefully behind on these posts Note to self: never make a writing commitment in public again. I have already written two pieces today but only one is for public viewing, it's just some random rhyming I did. Fun rhymes like this are one of the things I really enjoy doing. I think one of my next pieces will be about summer about to end..hmm...but anyway, here's a post to hold you till tonight. I plan on posting twice a day until the end of the month, that will catch me up on my posing goal! Thank you everyone once again for your continued visual appreciation of my work! Almost 1,200 views on the blog! It really does mean a lot to see that there are people out there who truly enjoy the work I enjoy so much. I'll quit rambling now and let you get to the enjoyable part :)

For Rhyme's Sake

Spittin rhymes for spittins sake
Gonna get this track all wet, Maloney lake
just because your lyrics bounce
Does not you an artist make
Just like throwin eggs into a pan
Doesn't magically create a cake
Don't think I'm hatin on your craft
I'm just tryina tell you don't be fake
It's not my pride that drives me
To be driven by one other is my take
I know you'll take this message hard
Probly hold it in and let it bake
You better let it out and let it go
Or your psyche it will break
I'm not comparing you to me
You can't compare a mower to a rake
One has power seeming unlimited
While the other just piles makes
If you stack one up on the other
The rake's courage would forsake
It's image would be ruined
It's seen effectiveness at stake
I'm sorry for my metaphors
Some people grasp them like snowflakes
And by that I mean not at all
So my point I must then remake
Undress it from its intelligent address
And present it completely nak-
Ed without those fancy trimmings
That make it look so good like Blake
But what was I sayin?
Oh yeah about those rhymes you break
I mean not like they were together
I mean they don't exactly make me ache
Maybe I should pick another topic
Off those jumbles remind me of a quake
Man these lyrics just seem to wind
Subject to subject like a snake
But hopefully their honest expression
Your creative eyes they will awake
Maybe they'll get off that verbiage milk
And have you tryin some of my steak

Post 14 of 27- Stone Marshmallow

I'm running on very few hours of sleep and I have very little time to secure a portion more tonight so this post will be brief! This piece is less lyrical and form-rigid than most of mine, it had a lot of depth though which I think you can relate to. So I am going to head in the general direction of dreamland and you, please, enjoy :)

Stone Marshmallow

It's been poked

It hurts

Been bruised

It hurts

Some give cry
Wall it
Stone it
Refuse entry

It hurts

Some ply
Entry loose

It hurts

Amidst ways
Pell mell

It hurts

One fact

It hurts

Post 13 of 27- Inspections Wry

It's almost 2am! I really am going to get to sleep at a decent time someday. But for tonight, here is my rumblings :) Enjoy!

Inspections Wry

I need your help
I'm about to cry
These hurts of mine
Will make me die
No outward sign
Not even a sigh
I give to them
With unpitying eye
But Lord you know
From up on high
That all my game
Is just a lie
A sad facade
To mask my fie
So please come now
My end is nigh
All dreams repressed
Hope's fount run dry
Not one day more
To question why

Post 12 of 27- Cruisin Rhymes

Check it out :) A little bit more lyrical than most of my stuff. Enjoy :)

Cruisin Rhymes

Heyyyy I think it's a chill night
Kickin back worries kilt night
Gettin messy look a fright
We don't really care
Yeah it's alright

Take a ride
See the sights
Summer glow
City lights


Don't really know where we goin tonight maybe gonna get crazy gonna get in a fight or we'll kick it takin fly to a brand new height either way we gonna shine like the sun so bright ridin on the breeze like Charlie's kite gonna run this town like Jay-Z might now cut to the beat no cheap sound bite no off color rhymes this spits all white

Now put the beat in neutral
Let the tension ease
Your auditory lobes
I'll continue to please
But not like Mike
Nah I promise no sleaze
I'll treat you ladies right
My lyrics down on their knees
Countless years of pleasure
Not just forty, Rick Dees
My aristocrat beats
Never stop like bees
If you think they're gone
I'm evergreen tree
Stinging unexpected pleasure
Cuz I never leaves

Parking spot
No handicap
This cat is real
No trendy sap
My limit's here
Verbiage cap
Rhythm's done
Through with that

Post 11 of 27- No Pane, No Gain

Check it out!!!!! Late night musings :) I'm in an awesome mood because of a wake up call I received from God earlier and it kinda translated a little into this piece. I hope it can inspire you even a little bit!!! And even if it leaves you still clinging to the ordinary, please enjoy as always :)

No Pane, No Gain

Ridin round careless
Not knowin that your calm
Is about to interrupt
Hit so hard it's like a bomb
Sayin you got all of your needs
When really this is just a balm

But not for your lips no
More like for your heart
Keepin your worries smooth
And your life rollin like a cart
When really all these objects
Have your life stuck right at the start

Car crash
Hulk smash
Marvel at this real life

Choice rash
Thyme dash
Spice it up with strife

Sailin smooth is just too fad
The unconcerned are so mundane
Too afraid to take a chance
Fear of new becomes their chain
Tell your fears to come alive
Then teach them what you know of pain

Not the window kind
Don't spend your days starin out
Wishin you had the courage
Of those takin on life's bout
Let loose your bob and weave
Let em hear your battle shout

Post 10 of 27- A False Lie

Anagram time! I really enjoy these creative forms, especially anagrams where the one liner actually adds to the poems central thought. I know I'm very behind on these postings and I do apologize :( I think I'm two posts behind so I will be working on catching up this week! Here is today's post! Please enjoy :) and don't forget to tell me what you thought!!!

A False Lie

Three little words
Haply traded back and forth
Ever bandied like careless jest
Long used as without worth
Anon they grew so familiar
So mundane as to not matter
The root feeling past expounded
In pieces lay all scattered
Lacking returned favor
Out of life the emotion seemed
Vast portions of its home
Ever guarded were then deemed
Yelling, screaming, crying
Out loud a promise then made
Until authentic return sighted
Three words use was strict forbade

Part 9 of 27- Truth's Drop

A quick post on my way to work! On my couch feelin like I'm gonna pass out at work tonight but I crammed a few words into a cryptic pattern. Decipher it if you can :) and even if it takes you in a direction unintended, please, as always, enjoy!

Truth's Drop

Bass drops
Heart catches
Tempo rise
Pulse matches

Lyrics fade
Mind goes blank
Faking truth
Heard so frank

Dream aside
Distraction fade
Emotions tide
Mindset wade

Lift you up
Dropping low
Rhythm's love
Stop and go

Issues fade
Hardship lost
Beat surrounds
Life accosts

Delusion grand
Moment still
Irration's cup
Dangerous full

Sane is lost
Rhyme has won
Victory sunk
All for fun

Post 7 of 27- Push, No Pull

Picked a random topic at Starbucks. I'm gonna just type it out as it comes with no editing. Guess we'll see if this works! Enjoy :)

The door says push
Still, you pull
Your intelligence bank
Obviously full

Trying to force
It to come to you
When force outward
Would allow you through

The trial you face
Is not so hard
Follow the signs
Keep up your guard

Advance nonstop
Think quit never
The hold on faith
You cannot sever

Without compliance
Comes great woe
Obey written word
Or your life will go

See through the glass
The door looks clear
Your way translucent
Goals so near

You can't attain
While holding fear
Let go your fright
Your eyesight sear

Don't look through
It may seem clear
Your way to go
Written so near

The door says push
Yet still you pull
Your forward movement
Is obviously null


Part 8 of 27- Skirmish: Lyrical

Late night crafting during the time I should be sleeping! Just some simple lines that I enjoyed putting together :) Hope you enjoy them as well!!!

Skirmish: Lyrical

Listen for a minute
tell me if you hear
Let me put it down
Holler if it's clear

Drop these beats
Spit some rhymes
Smash em together
Put in some kinda time

Makin bass like skrillex
Lookin twice as fly
Make your heartbeat twitch
Not bat an eye

Make it look hard
I don't even gotta try
Say there's a limit
I'm lookin past your sky

Move that foot
You feel it too
Bust some moves
Feel this groove

Let the artist speak
Not words he'll use
The sound you grasp
His tool to choose

Your ear is caught
Resistance through
Your flow responds
The beat has you

Part 6 of 27- Put The S In Average

I hate when I'm not a fan of my own work. Sometimes it's just like the words aren cooperating. Oh well, this is what I've got for today! Let me know what thoughts it brings up inside your cranium! And don't forget to show it to someone else!

Put The S In Average

Wait a minute
Take a sec
Let me get this straight

You really thought
For a bit
That defeat was my fate??

You can't know
Or even guess
At what really drives this gait

A human built
With other hands
A purpose for which I wait

The steel here
Strength so huge
There's very few which can relate

Weak me beat me
Forget kryptonite
This man's still standing real straight

Grab a fork
Even a small part
You couldn't handle from what's on my plate

Keep stressin
Worry how I stand
I'll always know I'm more than you rate

Hope you enjoyed my artistry! Thank you for appreciating my verbiage arraignment! Don't forget to take a minute to breathe and laugh with a child today!


Part 4 of 27- Flame On

Here's the missing post! I was preoccupied last night and then fell asleep before I planned so there's my excuse :) This one is for Sunday the 8th, hopefully I don't have to play catch up again on this! I'll be posting today's poem in a little bit. Enjoy!!!

Flame On

People cry and people wail
Because the fires burning long
The emotional reaction of them
Maybe it will end up in a song
Their feelings toward destruction
To be honest are all wrong
For the falling's not the end
It's just a test of what is strong
The vain material will flash
Just like a might king kong
Going higher till its seen by all
Then it's over like a game of pong
The realist then is all that's left
It's true mettle sounding like a gong

Part 5 of 27- Here, Lies...

So I'm running on one hour of sleep and very little energy of any sort. I'm exhausted. I'm not being pessimistic, I know all things WILL work together for good, I'm just saying that I've definitely hit a valley right now. I missed my posting yesterday, already messing up this challenge. I will post this lyric and then another later tonight to make up for the missed one. So without further ado, here is the poem for today:

Here, Lies...

I'm tired
Can I sit down
I'm tired
No don't frown
I can't take your disapproval
All of my courage hope and peace
You are prepping for removal

I'm tired
Please let me lay
I'm tired
Maybe it's today
When life finally will me persuade
Those waves of self pity
Are to heady for me to wade

I'm tired
Don't wake me now
I'm tired
Let this my final bow
Be unto a world which has me crumbled
I don't have strength to even stand
Much less step without a stumble

I'm tired
Please, let me die
I'm tired
My tears are not shy
They simply are no longer equipped
My will to move has abandoned
This man is finally whipped

Uplifting right?!? Okay so it's not exactly cheerful but I thought that in the interest of art it was not necessary for it to end on an upswing of attitude. This one I am going to count as today's poem and the one tonight will be yesterday's poem. Tell me why you did or did not like it! Just comment below! Thank you so much for your continued attention and feedback, you all really do play a part in encouraging my efforts. Until tonight, God bless and don't forget to laugh with a child today!

Part 3 of 27 - He Sitting Toward Me

Technically this post is 34 minutes late but I'm going to count it as on time since I actually wrote the poem around 1 today. I was at Amigos eating lunch with some of the church crew and a man sat down at a corner booth acting slightly odd. His behavior inspired me to write this poem between bites of an amazing taquito

He sits
A furtive glance
Thrown roomward

He sits
A social trance
Mood gloomward

He sits
A life askance
Headed doomward

He sits
A searching lance
Seeking whomward

He sits
A sudden prance
Journey tombward

Hope you liked it! If so, tell me about it! Or tell me how you found it distasteful, either way, leave a note in the box below! Well I'm hitting the sack for a few hours so that's all till tomorrow!

Part 2 of 27- Alway Alway Land

I'm already feeling pressed for inspiration and it's only day two!!! So much intricacy in this world though, I really have no excuse for any lack of brilliance in my verbalizations. Here's day two! Enjoy!!! And don't forget to leave your comment! Like it, love it, hate it, indifferent, let me know!!!

Alway Alway Land

A poem to share
I need to write
I need words to wrangle
But I feel in flight
My mind somewhere
Where everything's right
Where all the pressures
Don't squeeze tight
A stranglehold on dreams
Staying just out of sight
A place that feels so empty
Of harsh reality and fright
It's like soaring high on hopes
Ever lit by the suns light
A realm of unending day
Without those pains so trite
This portion of perfect sanity
Untouched by a single blight
Where all my wishes are reality
Without a single oppressor to fight
Come take my hand I'll show you
We'll fly just like a sprite
You'll see just how graceful it is
With all your aspirations so bright
Let's enjoy for just a moment
An escape from life's frantic night

Part 1 of 27 "Untitled Arrogance"

I'm feeling ambitious! Don't you live how I start my posts like we're already in the middle of a shared thought? Back to my ambition, today is July 5th! Okay, not exactly shocking, but I've been feeling like I need to hone my skills and practice achieving different affects through their composition. As a result of this epiphany of sorts, I am going to undertake a challenge of my own making; I am going to post a poem, long or short or structured or free verse, every day for the rest of the month. I'm always complaining of lack of time but I seem to find enough time to loaf around! Thus, I am dedicating a portion of each day to writing anything I can think of and posting it on here. I'd love to have all of you along for this short literary journey! Please continue to check back for my daily posts and feel free to comment on anything you read! I love feedback! My free time for today has been exhausted but I'll leave you with the first installment in this series. Enjoy!!!!

Untitled Arrogance

Arrogant uncaring
The world surrounds
Against my better knowledge
It pounds and pounds
I'm stuck pickin up pieces
Hopin to catch their rebounds
From all the dreams they wreck
Animosity abounds
Patiently pick up the scraps
And try to rebuild these grounds
The public consideration
Ever telling me my bounds
The comment-haters of this life
Making their constant rounds
The consensus seems to hold
That my life is like a scounds
Always sweating to take off
But never able to leave ground
Good thing only His thoughts matter
All y'all are so much sounds

Write at you tomorrow!!! God bless!

Sympathy For Lost Empathy

Okay so this is an attempt at free form artistry. It still has some form but it doesn't rhyme at all, if you know me then you know how difficult it is for me not to rhyme in manipulated speech. These are real speculations which flitted through my head in that brief second of passing. Please enjoy :)

Sympathy For Lost Empathy

Sipping my coffee
A smoothie actually
With the roasted bean
To enhance it's flavor

Then a woman walks by
Her gaze floor-ward
Her eyes averted
From any gaze returned

Her walk is as one
Who has seen much
That life has to offer
In it's bitterness

The air she puts
Forth from her
Like an aura
A cocoon of uncertainty

Just another soul
Half cracked
By the trials
Given to most

A curiosity
Springing upward
Surfacing in mine
Wonder at her station

Does she yet bear
Those afflictions
Which bear her
So obviously low

Does she wear
The timescars
Or open sores
Not yet passed

In a moment
She passed
All of this
Consideration over

And again
I turn oblivious
Of her pain
To my coffee

Hope you could appreciate it! If you have comments or thoughts on the subject matter or style please feel free to comment! Until my next spot I inspiration, live curious and take time to read to a child.
