In the world of poetry which I do not do, I lay down lyrics telling of a story or stories. This one tells of an incident of which I won't boldly mention. I do have boundaries and they are between Yah and me. I can not explain away why people do what they do or respond the way they respond. But I can write the way I do and say things I need to say because I experienced and if you didn't get it. Read it again.

People are people

True enough

And some people

Raise their nose

As

They spit

A lyrical prose

They keep their nose

In the air

Because one time

They were

Live on the air

And

Some people

Think

You are

Great

Because you were

Live on the air

Performing

That time

Busting a story

Using entertaining rhymes

And

They think

Your time

On the live air

Cause you

To know

What it takes

To get there

So they ride

Your coat tails

And kiss your ass

Never realizing

You

Just got a

Negus pass

They don’t even realize

The hidden lies

That got their eyes

Wide on you

People

Are people true

Enough

But it’s

That puff

Ego

Shining like a Negro

Making my food

Wanna go

Heave ho

And the hate

For another writers’

Taste

Because

Their lyrics

Leave you in space

Talking about the race

And how we left

Too much space

In the rat race

Some people

Are people true enough

But

Some people

Hate at the gate

And

Have nasty

Little traits

BECAUSE

Everybody not straight

And they hate

Because of

My same gender mate

Leave that hateration

BS

Under your covers

Because you choose

To live undercover

And you have nothing

New to discover

Stay rapped in your cover

If you step down

Unto the floor

You don’t touch down

In my ghetto shoes

Pull that cover

Way up over your head

Because my life experiences

Will make you wish

You were dead

Close your eyes

And pray for sleep

Cause you could never handle

All the knives given by your peeps

And if sleep

Doesn’t come

Pray that you can

Keep it pushing

And on the run

Pray that the children you

Left behind

Will hear that

You spoke of them

In a rhyme

People are people

True enough

But when my life

Go on a mic

Or a stage

You could never take

My life’s lyrics

On your

Televised stage

It

Couldn’t take

The rage

My lyrics engage

And the truth

Too blunt

Too out-front

And the truth

I still hunt

AND IF I SAW IT

HEARD IT

READ IT

STUDIED IT

PRAYED

ABOUT IT

EXPERIENCED IT

I’MA SAY IT

IN MY

LIFE’S LYRICS

AND

I

DON’T

GIVE A Shit

Cause in 50 plus years

I should be able to spit here

How I see it

And if

You don’t wanna hear it

Close your ears

Like some people do

Cause people

Are people true enough

And I know

I come a little gruff

My life’s lyrics

Cause people

To fear it

But

Just listen

To it

Because

You’ll never know

What you

Can learn

From it
