    Have a seat within the poets lounge,
    Make yourselves at home as I break down
    My poetic metaphysics to the crowd.
    Take your shoes off if you must,
    Relax in the comfort of this Nubian vibe.
    By the way,
    Please feel free to embrace me as I strive to
    Realize the true potential of the spoken word.

    I am a writer they say,
    Poetic Griot I am called,
    But I do not dwell within the conventional
    Realm of poetics.
    You see, my license is free.
    My expression flowing,
    Soulfully uplifting,
    Able to hit that spot inside you that
    Makes you say,
    “Yeah, that’s me”.

    I like to write **** down,
    Giving my thoughts,
    My feelings,
    My love,
    My pain.
    I aspire to inspire sleeping giants
    Within the game,
    Planting seeds of Cultural Revolution
    That sparks the flame of cognitive awareness
    I enjoy casting ignorant concepts away
    While gathering productive ones together,
    So who am I?
    You can call me poet!

    You're indeed a poet, and I love the vibe of this piece, yes.
