    POETIC SOUL

    In a cold world, people are drawn to heat
    In a silent world, we can hear heartbeats
    Of those that are among us that go their way
    And live life as it comes, day by day
    Mourning memories of times now gone
    Crying hard, but not crying long
    Watering the earth with the tears of our healing
    That feed the hungry with emotion and feeling
    I am one of these heartbeats that moves on lifes incline
    My will and resolve is what makes me shine
    Glowing with the brilliance of that to which I aspire
    Burning with a passionate, fervent fire
    I will live forever with an undying persistence
    Outside of my present temporal existence
    While in the minds of people, my words scroll
    I am, and will always be, a poetic soul

    I am a man of triunity; a living lyric
    Composed of body, soull and spirit
    Immortality, wrapped in a mortal lining
    Destined to endure lifes rebuffs and refinings
    Living life, governed by the rising of the sun
    Taking every experience as a learning one
    Walking in finiteness, of my direction I'm not too sure
    But I use the past to fortell the future
    So while I dwell in my human house
    I will marry poetry, and make her my spouse
    And through our union, given enough time
    We will have children of prose, and children of rhyme
    That speak the words that will find,...
    Their way past the ears, and into the minds,...
    Of kindred spirits that take mentality strolls
    Such will be the seeds of my poetic soul

    Dark is my skin, and deep is me
    As dark as the deepest depth of the sea
    As wet is the water, that waters the lesser
    I can either nourish, or crush under the pressure
    Using the weighted words that fill bookshelves
    That causes one to encourage or to destroy themselves
    With words of tact, that can make sore
    As an instrument of peace, or a weapon of war
    A sower of words, either cruel or kind
    That plant themselves in the soil of the mind
    And grow according to the mentality of man
    That determines the harvest of his land
    With fruits, bitter or sweet, or the chaff exempt
    That will grow either into contentment, or contempt
    As powerful is the large stone that rolls
    Such is the power of my poetic soul

    I do hurt, the hurts of man
    As sure as I hold objects in my hand
    Sitting quietly, letting my thoughts expand
    While through my fingers, falls loose sand
    Listening to the song of the wind around me
    Feeling breezes, as its melody surrounds me
    Getting more in touch in the way of comrodory
    In adding my words to its harmony
    Occupying this form till my time of eviction
    Pondering life with ardent conviction
    Feeling the pleasentness, and bitter disdain
    Confort, anxiety, pleasure and pain
    In this temple of skin, that will one day disolve
    And set my spirit free, in its final resolve
    As I live on in eternity, and dance with an eternal drum roll
    Played out in the minds of generations to come, words from my poetic soul

    hey this was nice but let me give a little love up in here

    My stats ignored by cats on this board they don’t know Hip Hop
    Got their lips dropped writing poetry, these bozos can’t rip shop
    With a chain saw I’m plain raw like oysters on the beach stuff hot
    You make noise but you fake boys no skills can’t flow ill like me
    The type G that blows it up and throw corrupt grammar night-lee

    Wow...A poetic soul feels so much of life, all of the intricate threads of it....sort of speechless actually, this encompasses so much of the mind of a poet. This was beyond wonderful.
