    My mind; I unlock.
    This frees and unblocks
    Rhymes I write- tight like zip lock.
    Pen scratching paper, constant tick tocks,
    All I hear-then my clock stops
    And my mind expands, busts out the box.
    This is no new phenomenon, it happens a lot.
    I've always followed a different train of thought.

    I was the quiet little thoughtful kid
    Who wouldn't play “tag” or “It”.
    I would just sit,
    Looking to the sky,
    Wondering; how do clouds get so high?
    How did the sun get so bright?
    Why do people tell so many lies?
    Why does love feel so right?
    Before Jadakiss made the song- I “asked why”,

    And I wouldn't rest till an answer was found
    Because the question would smother my mind all around,
    Screaming in my mind loud
    Like a stereo system- surround sound.
    Others comprehended even less than
    Me, so I sought to enhance my own comprehension.
    by first comprehending myself within.
    This is how I fell in love with-this paper and this pen.

    Putting yourself into the ink and letting it flow onto paper, what could be better? I feel you on this poet.
