    It's not easy being Watz
    But somebody's gotta do it
    It might as well be me
    What's in a name?
    What meaning is contained
    in a moniker which
    cannot easily be explained?
    No one name, nor two,
    nope, not even three
    can even come close
    to capturing you, or me
    What's behind my name?
    Just check out my flows,
    cause those words hit paper
    depending on how the wind blows
    If an ill wind is upon me
    that makes me feel bad, I may
    want to flow it sad, mad, or even glad
    that it was a life lesson learned,
    not merely a horrible experience had.
    It's not easy being Watz
    But somebody's gotta do it
    It might as well be me
    Poets have said my flows are
    deep, so what should my name be then?
    We already have a poet named deepy
    and she digs chasms with her pen
    I've been said to shed some wisdom
    when my flows come up to bat
    But we already have a sage, and
    an angelic one at that
    It's not easy being Watz
    But somebody's gotta do it
    It might as well be me
    So, I'll just stick with my name Watz,
    it's meant to keep ya guessing
    And keep flowing and growing
    Lord knows I don't need to be stressing
    And I'll keep reading and replying,
    drop me some lines, I'll drop you a few
    I've sure grown to love, the talented poets
    comfortably living in the Destee crew
    It's not easy being Watz
    But somebody's gotta do it
    It might as well be me....
    Releasing
    Trying to stay free.....

    I'm glad you're doin it, sister, cause
    we need someone like you
    a poet who can ponder and flow
    and cut a glacier or two
    cause you're deep
    but you also lay it out well
    travel every subject
    always have some wisdom to tell
    unique, your voice,
    a warm and familiar light
    in the Destee chorus
    ya gotta be you, that's right

    Glad to know you're feeling me, Rich, no it's not easy, but all I can do. Thank you.
    Blue, that was a very warm reply, and I appreciate that sis.

    it might as well be you,
    nobody else can feel it the way you can.
    we open our eyes,
    to behold names we don't understand.
    it might as well be you,
    nobody else can prove it.
    we open our eyes,
    to behold beautiful names-but do we use it? or abuse it?
    it might as well be you.................... :court:
