    What if I couldnt write no more
    From dialated pupils or eyes stayed close/
    Writers block/mental sickness nerves stuck froze
    I had a vision of poetry clubs closing all doors/
    No more open mics, no more late nite hypes
    No more Russell Simmons Def Jam Poetry right/
    Words didnt ryhme and my scheme was shattered
    Sitback laugh and cry two faces madhatter/
    So what is a world without poetry
    I verbal knightmare if you ask me/
    I cry for help that cant past me
    I spot for help with no sign for wordplay/
    Cause poetry takes away my fears and puts me...
    In perfect harmony

    What is a world without poetry??

    a world without poetry is death,
    like everyone high on crystal meth..
    barely trying to stay alive,
    because each action triggers emotion,
    each motion is a poetic explosion..
    internal spontaneous combustion.
    from not being able to release the poetry button,
    death is the sad truth,
    when a world without poetry..
    becomes true.

    Nice drop..
    you been awol..
    w/c/b....
    :p

    Well I'd have to say it would be a tow up world and a world without a voice. We definitely need creativity and art or else we become plain jane and redundant. This is a good way of looking at it.

    I'm so glad I have Destee.com. Whenever I'm tired, I come here to reload. Whenever my creativity is gone, I come here to upload. Still struggling with writing, but if I wouldn't have poetry, life would feel really empty.
    Dope write.
