    I don’t have writer’s block


    My first style was all rhyme
    No meta, phors added floors but is my flow betta?
    Dueces respond on forums amid
    Amidst got me pissed
    Why I drop and get dissed?
    Nobody feels this
    Like a chapped lip kiss
    Nobody wants this

    Writer’s block
    D-block, flow locked
    Dreds, nappy and stenched
    But natural, armadale
    Pour onto audience galore
    I need more
    Therefore I go back to essence
    Of my flow, where girls are…
    And men are labeled as….
    Go figure….
    Street science
    Karoake
    Mic
    Computer instrumentals
    No pencil
    No pen
    No pad
    No pape
    Just beat to rape
    Sweepstake
    Stick to
    Mental
    Type hype
    Baby wipe
    Who’s right?
    Many don’t like
    What..Recite?

    I lost focus, are myf lows too personal to respond
    Or do I fast on my peers and go without reading scribes like Ramadan
    Maybe, flows too shallow, deeper subjects
    Say something nobody feels but me
    That’s it, nobody knows me
    This isn’t poetry
    This is just words pasted on a background
    Nobody wants this

    Writer’s block
    D-block, flow locked
    Dreds, nappy and stenched
    But natural, armadale
    Pour onto audience galore
    I need more
    Therefore, I stop rhyming
    I’m a emcee at heart
    Stop rhyming to beats, maybe my prose is wrong
    Every flow don’t gotta be song
    Maybe I’m too east or down south
    Maybe if I flowed with a grill
    Took off my chain, maybe they’ll except me
    I have feasible respect
    I keep writing, what I write
    Late night, lonely
    Origin of plight
    The light, how can I be a pillar
    If I get published am I still a affirm act
    Would anyone cop it, only sell like 20 g’s
    Pondering if they don’t feel me
    Who am I trying to please?
