It was my first time on the mic. The host gives me an intro, praying my words will be tight. I step up on the stage to spit out my rhyme. You give me looks not to waste your time. I was nervous as hell for this was a live broadcast My usual audience is the mirror, a simpler task. The entire time I am in the light you’re watching from head to toe Wishing this new-comer will hurry with her flow. That was then, this is now The fear is gone & it’s time to show u how How I get down on being what I aim to be I am Ton’yae “DaNakedPoetess”…Are you ready for me? I’m not your average poet, coming at you with the same vibe. But when I’m finished you’ll be thinking, where this girl been all this time. You see your usual poets have that afro centric look Big words found in books Hip hop flavor with that urban appeal By looking at me, you wonder what's the deal? I am DaNakedPoetess Exposing Truth Purifying da Soul If you don’t want to be purified, it’s okay to crawl through that hole. You see, I don’t plan to stand before you to put on a show Others have done that before. My words speaks entirely of my life How I deal with my struggles & strife Coping with why a man hasn’t made me a wife Why my self-esteem has been cut by a knife? But hey, I love my life & everyone in it Regardless of what you see, I wouldn’t change a little bit. It feels good to walk around with my big butt & a smile. I bet you’re wondering how it feels to be me for a little while. Don’t deny it…I see the way you look when I pass by Longing for just a touch…A feel…of these thighs. Go ahead! Deny it, you are not at fault. Please believe you are not the only one who has been caught. However, sometimes your stares can be offensive. Putting my confindence on the defensive. Making me is exactly what you want me to be. Insecure and resilient, but are you really ready for me? I will clear this cloud fogging my mind. Ignore your stares & stop wasting precious time. I’ve waited too long for my premiere Hiding behind words as well as my fears. Looking for acceptance from people who are not sincere Whose lives are just as foggy and unclear? I am DaNakedPoetess representing everyone who doesn’t know what to say Whose lives are tormented in some form or fashion everyday? Who doesn’t have the courage or strength to run away? From the non-sense and bullshyt delivered in every possible way. Does not matter whether you are a woman or a man. Its time to free yourself of shame and take a stand. Believe in yourself, your voice does count. If your better half can’t deal with the new you then let them bounce. You are beautiful in every single way Don’t let someone else’s insecurity ruin your day. Believe in yourself, you are all you have Clear your mind of the past, and find your better half Maybe after all you are ready for me. What do you think? Well we’ll just have to wait and see. LET’S DO THIS!!!
