    Just another poem

    Another memory to get by
    Does my life differ?
    It still the same tape
    Playin fate
    Still the same grape
    I eat
    It all seems to taste the same

    Maybe if I took a little more
    Instead of living off emotion
    I let the song play
    Like a lit match
    It burns in my soul
    But who’s to say
    I’ll ever make it

    Will I get there?
    I wanna be better
    With all the slang I try tto slang
    In this authority game
    Its seems all a lie
    My words will never reach the shelves

    An I watch time go by
    I get crazy if I drop a forum bid, not enough response
    My esteem lowers
    Like dj equipment
    I fade out
    Screwing 5000 watts
    Somebody lowered my watts

    Is my voice gone, does the power still exist
    In the alphabet
    Trying to understand the numerics
    Of every parrot
    That watches me
    And speaks
    Trying to learn

    I am a parrot….

    I don’t know my own words...
    How can this be?
    I don’t know myself
    Is my life of a key-b
    Trying to understand me
