    I Ran
    I ran so often the souls of my feet bled
    Not to mention my soul
    I cried
    I cried so often salt was
    Often the only emotion dusted on my cheeks
    I watched
    I watched so often others dance
    Others Sing
    Others Write
    For praise and only…
    Praise…
    Lucifer’s Content
    The one angelic being who
    Held organs as lungs
    And directed heavens choir
    collected the praise for the ultimate poet
    GOD.
    The praise feeling like it was his
    and the swell of his ego
    Led to his Kingdom
    His content.
    His Sin
    His continent
    His con-tin-ent
    Conned in it
    I fell
    And rested In A lucid angels demerit
    Pride left me and did not right me
    The crowd that loved
    Could not sight me
    Lucifer’s content could not
    Requite me nor
    provide the growth humility did
    My light was suffused in liquid pride
    Dimmed by a misconstrued purpose
    I realized that the blessing
    Rested not in the praise of collection but
    In the honor of carrying the message
    Inspiring the song
    Passing the praise.
    No longer complacent
    In the content of a
    misused art form of the psalmist
    Lucifer’s Con-Tent
    In the tent of a defrauder
    Where I was the mark
    Resting in a home of sin
    that beckoned me dead.
    Now illuminated
    And enlightened
    Once again sweet smelling aroma
    To one omnipresent
    I scribble this scribe by scripture.
    Bypassing the trial of being bent
    Awaking from Resting in Lucifer’s content.

    speak it? hmmm never saw it as a mic pice but maybe ;). Thank you for the warm welcom DaRoc, A sista surely 'preaciated dat dere. This piece speaks of me using poetry as a Christ like ministry as well as expression. The growth that erupted after writing this is something I still can not believe nor completely fathom. It's a very personal piece of peace and I hoped that the readers would discover their own content /demise....for me it was once writing for all the wrong reasons just to serve myself. Any questions bout it...let me know I don't bite (well i do but don't tell nooooooooboday):))



    My name? whoa you want me to get all nerdy in hea!!! I won't go all deep on everyone but I'll say Muse is inspiration. I hope to be the deity that can get inside and inspire...as well as continue to hold myself to high standard by learning those who let me in. Such as you guys sharing your poetry...I want to read, dwell, and take it to my mental enough to feel I know you. I fight for creativity and I'm not the poet with my fist always in the air (though I definitely respect that). i'm the lil' ole Muse with tha Papyrus trying to dance on the parchment ...dig? if not too bad lol...just playin. thanks again


    did I just type all that? daaaaaaaaaang oops hee hee...
    blessins'

    When I first read this piece, I thought of the struggle of not being able to write freely, more than a mental block, a block surrounding a person's peace so to speak. This piece made me think, and I like that. Welcome to destee, glad you feel comfrotable enough to share.
