This world moves so fast no body has the time to listen. from day one though its how we learn. poets have that great ability to capture your undivided attention. stopping the world around their reader. so they can listen.. to all of us poets that write not just for ourselves but for those who need our words as their daily bread.

The world spends so fast accidents happen in seconds..................





kids are born

families torn

a death is morned

from rush hour traffic

to supper time

to get some rest would be a fucking crime

every day

you want to say

but everyone so hard of hearing today

if a silent world did occur

your voice would not be heard

hide your rage

in your fleshy cage

you lie

so you don't cry

about these feelings inside

dam the world is missing

to fuckin busy to listen

we speak with the silents of a pen

we are heard the loudest in the end

poets find the time

walking the words of a fine line

freedom of speech is not a crime

to exposed emotion in rhythm and rhyme

drink their salty blood

from their fresh cut rose bud

made with a sacrificing knife

get a taste of real life

from their wounds that bleed

they have the power to make your world stop

while you read

I give props to those who feel

emotions that will spill

for keeping it fucking real

knowing no shame

raising hands, taking blame

who's lame ?

And...... you think I'm insane ?

You just came to a halt

fuck it's not my fault

my piece you bought

hide that emotion ,don't get caught

just a little light that I shed

on some human reality that you've read

how else would they get feed ?

if all us poets stop writing to the dead.....
