    " The Art N Me "




    I sit in front of the keyboard and wonder about the art n me.

    The Kufi, incense burned out, buddha inspired ,
    dread-locked , mind - freed art n me.

    I mimic real musicians when trying to make
    " .. you know, some of that Erykah Badu ****.. that
    soul **** --- you know, it goes like ... "

    and then audaciously wonder why it sounds counterfeit.


    I half *** college , self improvement and every job i've ever had.

    Is it laziness ?

    When trying to put WHOLE *** into music , relationships
    and things -- the art n me brings questions.
    A- Muse ing my life - tickling it until it screams uncle -
    and I say " which uncle ? was he a painter ? was he a poet ?
    I'm sure he played music, how did he dress ? "
    The Art N Me is .... Canada Far...
    Close , but yet foreign land.
    and ohio is heart shaped - so love is the art ,
    but **** - ain't no body's heart really shaped
    like them fake *** Valentine sentiments.

    The art n me excuses itself like " pardon me "
    as if it wants no part of me.
    And i'm left w/ only artistry , the art is to try -
    but why lie............... Not everyone can be Marley or Simone
    - I was just hopin for some middle ground between
    Common N Cosby or maybe Jigga N ...
    whoever.


    The art N me is tardy..



    * waiting , waiting , waiting *

    But, he that waits on the lord...

    Oh! "But he that waits on the lord shall mount up with wings of eagle, he shall run and never grow weary and never shall he faint..." "Thus said the Lord" and I know he ain't lying.
    Just hang in their doing what you love and keep on trying.
    For some of us have many gifts on the offering plate to
    offer...and some of us have nothing but an empty coffer.
    Give what you have and be satisfied with yourself.
    You have nothing to prove to anyonelse!
    For God's time is not our time...

    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
    :D
