    i read a lot of poems on here and i just wanted to share this
    if u don't comment on anything i post, i ask that u reply to this

    heres and old pic of me be4 i cut my hair off
    it was actually and underground copy of my book
    i didn't feel like doing all the photoshop stuff to it but thats droppin (Lord soon?)
    i think i was 20
    how do i post a picture of me

    I’m not A Poet

    I’m not a poet
    Just a lost child, wild, in the streets searching for a profile
    Most of my poems rhyme, would other poets like my style

    I’m not a poet
    I just listen to rap and R&B, spit a bar, trying to be like them
    My poems are fifteen minutes, does it take hours to be like them

    I’m not a poet
    I’m scared to recite cuz my game is more of a melody
    Am I violating the G code, P code, somebody tell me?

    I’m not a poet
    I was a game-spitter, who spit game to women I met
    I’m like a young Nolan learning to play catch

    I’m not a poet
    Would I get the admiration like a Maya Angelou?
    I want my words to dissolve in brains n hearts and burn slow

    I’m not a poet
    Can girls curl, words digest in my people and make em hurl
    I don’t wanna be a my documents poet, wanna touch the world

    I’m not a poet
    I freestyle based on a feeling, just a lyricist
    Did my peeps stop reading, is they feelin this

    I’m not a poet
    My dartboard says I’m not a man
    My knees felt week, lost my B-boy stance

    I’m not a poet
    I just talk and somehow words become sentences
    I never have a title till the end of the genesis

    I’m not a poet
    I don’t write with tradition or spit the school-learned haiku
    I don’t have a catchy title, I just do what I do

    I’m not a poet
    Not def, but a po e- eccentric man, ry-minisce over a jam
    I just write what dwells in the hearts of man, I write 4 da fam

    My fav part - I’m not a poet
    Not def, but a po e- eccentric man, ry-minisce over a jam
    I just write what dwells in the hearts of man, I write 4 da fam


    Much luv,
    Angeli
