This is a poem for a story I'm working on. I have written this as it will be the introduction but I also wanted to entice a few people before I start writing the story.

the story I will develop will be in chapters, and each chapter i am looking for peoples feedback and ideas for the next piece, If I like any ideas I may work on them :D so please give feedback.

I don't have a job, my cash is running low
Stuck in a ragged rut, makes my anger grow
People’s prejudices put me in a bitter hole
My girl's in our homely hut, pissed over our swindler role
Times like these I wish I still smoked
I’m craving, as tears leave my face soaked

So much ambition in my heart, but no opportunity
School considered me smart, but I’m in this shoddy society
I wish I knew where to start, they call the poor a minority
I just want to unfurl, but they won’t let me
Can’t even look after my girl, Oh god Judy

Six months without a smoke
Judy thinks it’s all a joke
After today I’m considering sparking this roach
Only way I can escape these peoples reproach
A chance to hide away, help forget how they gloat
I’ll give a damn another day, tonight my mind can float

That was awesome, Matty! The lyrics flowed nicely--now, you just need to post an MP3 of you rapping it!

I loved some of your word choices: "unfurl","sparking this roach", etc.

Line 4: put an apostrophe in "girl's"

That was really good! :) I love the rhyming of words. Really good. It's descriptive and made a clear message of what you're trying to say. Thank you for inviting me here. You're a wonderful writer! :)

I love it. You're all round I see. Most of your poems I've read so far described fear in itself and the strength to overcome it. This is a bit more practical. It talks about the poor who try to survive in society and those looking for a second chance. It's a nice theme. Keep up the good work.

Again you describe the meaning I am trying to get across! I respect your opinion, like I said in my previous poem you help me realize that I am getting my message across correctly!

seriously thank you for taking the time to write a comment this detailed, that little more is so helpful to me! Again thank you Edwin !!

Mon, October 29th, 2012 4:52pm


That's where I get my inspiration from when I write poetry! I guess one day I should pick up a mic !

Mon, October 29th, 2012 1:38pm

Mon, October 29th, 2012 6:27pm


If i was going to rap I would have to write a lot more than these three stanza's ! Yer Ill have a look cheers !!

Mon, October 29th, 2012 1:39pm
