    Do any of you poets and poetess feel like this sometimes:

    Poetry,
    will you let me be?
    You put hundreds of ideas for nu' flows in my head
    as i try to rest in my bed
    Can a Sista' get some sleep?

    i mean isn't it enough that you consume my thoughts most of each day
    Makin' me so easily inspired by dam near anything that comes my way
    Don't you know that what you sew you shall reap?

    You ain't gotta be so rude
    coming to me whenever YOU FEEL LIKE Being spoken or written
    Don't you know the proper thing to do is to first ask for permission?
    You ain't gotta be so rude

    And why are you so selfish?
    One of the rare moments i was free of you
    a thought came to me and said
    "Kim, why is poetry takin up so much of the room in yo' head?
    there are other things that need to be there, such as I,
    or else i may die."

    Now i ain't nobody's fool,
    so i turn to Thought and said
    "Thought, Poetry can't exist without you"

    You see, I later realized that
    Poetry became a disguise and became Thought
    so even when i think i'm free of Poetry
    i'm only fooling me

    Poetry, why you do me like that?
    Do you believe you're the boss of Me?
    You just wait til i think of a way to rid you of me so i "can be"

    ...but wait, to think is a form of thought
    which is Poetry disguising again!!!!
    Well Poetry, I guess YOU are the boss
