    rhyming is my reason
    reaching souls is my goal
    writin is my medicine
    for when the good times fold
    it clears my brain
    organizes my thoughts
    that jump from side to side
    sometimes get stuck or caught
    releases anger
    expresses my feelings
    connects me to others
    that understand my dealings
    gives me the confidence
    to move on n strike
    where the hell would i be
    if i didnt write??
    i got pads n pens stacked
    with thoughts n words packed
    in my brain to create n attack
    problems n situations that arent huge but abstract
    i pick up phrases
    n read the dictionary
    so i can teach this word like a gospel missionary
    i memorize the thesaurus
    so i can put them in my rhymes
    different words, same definitions
    grab the reader every time
    try to keep my flow to a beat
    boom, tat, buh boom tar
    try readin this, clappin, n stompin ur feet
    some ppl like my ish n some dont
    i figure i gotta have critics to get better
    if not, i wont
    i read other's pieces n themes come to mind
    might bite off a style or two, but everything u read is all mine
    from the 1st to last line
    i sing or rap while writin em
    sometimes i dont waste the paper, im just typin em
    i know writin doesnt fit an athletes description
    thats what they told me once they took a listen
    dont let those stereotypes get too believin
    cuz looks sure can be decievin
    aiight... im done
    i was just typin.

    If that was just "typin" I'd love to read you when your "writin". You've got "skilz"...I'm not sure I've ever read anyone's work on this forum so quickly...I say that because of how smooth your flow was...I would love to hear this on track.
