    i have a question do a lot of poets in this forum perform at readings?



    I am….

    Tainted Platinum

    I am the essence of ink before it reaches the printer
    I am the message before it reaches the sender
    I am the dirt and the epidermis of grass
    I am the pass, the catch; I am the first of the last

    Revolutionary, dismissed the evolutionary
    With knowledge legendary
    Ain’t have to edit my flows to censored ears
    I am one of the few men who has no fears

    I am the ****** that you say I am
    I am the same person who sits next to Uncle Sam
    I am the man who stands where government stands
    I am the coca ship that lands and docks on foreign sands

    Undisputed, underrated, and highly agitated
    Slept on my flows cuz I spit for the street stakes
    Had a wish like a sweepstakes
    Darkness evolved into light like Christmas stakes

    I am a puddle of blood and pathogens that dissolve in aspirin
    I am the spoiled child who keeps nagging
    I am the experimentation and the grants minorities never seen
    I am the credit rating and the equity never foreseen

    Against all odds, all cost is minimal
    With precious luxuries in Africa and minerals
    Not too literal, I flow for bowls of cereal
    To get protein, is the everyday ritual

    I am a crusade; I am civil rights and affirmative action
    I am a leader, a human, so excuse me Miss Jackson
    I am a law inscribed by the bribe of brides
    I am the prenup and the documents in fine print inside

    Whosoever put levels together to vanquish endeavors?
    Goodfellas, aids like rocafellas, unread letters
    Anthrax staining tampax
    If only the contacts, could be seen with contacts

    I am love, a well of passion, bliss
    I am sight, blindness I am the last kiss
    I am a smile, I am child, I am a lifestyle
    I am a poet, soul singer I am freestyle

    Raw, unsaw, unmarked car
    Un-discovered on Destee, scratches on my car
    Parked in neutral, who do you root to
    Four, four, routes I can elude to

    I am the shine, I am the gloss, I am ice
    I am nice, I am the dice, I am twice
    I am the man doubled behind interior and exterior
    I am to animals superior but to God inferior

    I am tainted platinum
