    Poetically Acquired Taste
    This is how I’m gonna flow
    With words of compassion and comfort I speak
    That comes from deep within my soul
    Paying homage and respect to my forefathers
    And my elders in the here and now
    Reminding myself of where I’ve come from
    I constantly take a humble bow

    Poetically Acquired Taste
    My message is soothing and crystal clear
    I have these thoughts I can’t keep to myself
    Must spread and share them whether far or near
    Because the world can truly relate
    Concerning the matters of my heart
    With my writings I yearn to reach the masses
    If I touch one life I’ve done my part

    Poetically Acquired Taste
    This art style has no bounds
    Stretched from extreme to extreme and beyond
    Always loaded ready to shoot off more rounds
    Deep Intellectual stimulation
    Is the level of arousal I wish to seek
    Can anyone help take this brotha higher?
    For I am strong, yet humble and meek

    Poetically Acquired Taste
    Many said I could not achieve
    Because of the neighborhood I grew up in
    They lost sight and did not believe
    But I did not listen to the nay Sayers
    And the community that gave me an evil eye
    But I told myself with God’s help I will succeed
    Can’t keep me grounded I was destined to fly

    Poetically Acquired Taste
    My message will last till the end of time
    My poetic impulse sharpens more each time I write
    My intellect is heightened, my spirit climbs
    Not to mention my heart is comforted
    With words the pen to paper has wrought
    And you know what ... you can tempt me and entice me
    But this artful, angelic soul cannot be bought

    Poetically Acquired Taste
    My love has no limit, knows no end
    Poets from the past, present, and future
    Commune with me as friend with friend
    Always wanted something more meaningful in life
    Something deep, something solid, and profound
    Always looking forward, reaching upward
    In my search for higher ground
