    Do I?...

    Man I cant lie I aint got ****
    I aint got to brag
    Im hard pressed for some cash
    to send to my ill dad

    An this mind block is drillin me, travelling willingly
    Aint got a phobia about planecrash killin me
    Im forced to flee im foreign
    Im from across the seas
    Unfortunately im fallin

    Its often they say i got a way with words
    I try killin my stress like Sadaam did the Kurds
    Thats to my brother locked up behind bars and courts
    While groupies in suits talk of crimes and torts
    My mother's jerkin tears awaitin tha phonecalls its sick
    so sick i cant stand this ****
    freewill probably phuked over our whole man-u-script

    Folk who spit like me deserves some sort of destiny
    no reason why i should live in a place where they shoot so free
    my circumstance is nuts
    or maybe its my preception of life its ugly truss

    I had this one poem i wrote a while back
    they say its not like rap
    not that rap is bad
    but my poems are more abstract
    more free of insecurities like tryna prove who i be
    more times travelled
    more thoughts unravelled
    more language to baffle u like a woman with a adams apple

    and THIS comin from a black muslim refugee?!
    who came to this country in like...1993
    Can u imagine how much strikes they got lined up against me??
    You'll get the details..
    Dig the intricacies if u care to listen
    You'll hear the street tales but to no avail hear me convey the wisdom
    Therefore its best I
    switch over like a transvestite
    And leave poetry to those
    it holds captive in its cage
    makes a woman by its page
    and made a slave by its rage
    I only write when it comes to me
    Its an expression.
    They call it poetry.
