    I heard the other day that I didn't look like a poet,
    I didn't know if I was I had to show it.
    Is it because my life doesn't seem to be unfit,
    or is because I don't have dreds or wear a dysheiki or some ****.
    How is a poet suppose to look or dress,
    or what everthing I come across has to get oppress.
    I'm sorry that is just not me I just like to express.
    The lines that I create were basically for me,
    Ive just now come surface to let others see.
    I refuse to hold all of lifes tribulation in my chest,
    to many of them can put you to rest.
    Whether you call me a poet or not,
    There is someone out there know what i'm going through,
    and think this is some what hot.

    BLESSINGS INTINUALLY TO ALL MY FELLOW WRITERS, POETS, EXPRESSORS, ETC.

    Queen,

    It's funny how some peeps have this preconceived vision on how a poet is supposed to look. It's comedy to me. As if you can't be real if you don't look real to them. All I can say with my limited wisdom is, look at 'em, laugh at 'em, and write about 'em. Nice work...kep it up.

    blak
