    The mind of a poet is a twisted intellectual
    who has escaped from his cocoon and exploded with pure delight
    or slithered through with anger and pain
    who could be...
    a lawyer, doctor, judge, teacher
    mother, father, son, daughter
    junkie, drug dealer, homemaker, student
    police officer, businessman, unemployed, street walker
    or just one of the boyz in the hood

    With the ability to enhance you and
    romance you with the dance of pen

    the capabilities to look inside of the unknown and
    tap... tap... tap...
    into our own and others insecurities

    The mind of a poet is a twisted intellectual
    who has escaped from his cocoon and exploded with pure delight
    or slithered through with anger and pain
    who could be...
    a scientist, engineer, novelist, song writer
    athlete, electrician, social worker, trash man
    sister, brother, aunt, uncle
    preacher, zoo keeper, astronaut, a bum on the corner
    or just one of the sistas down the street

    who can spurt out a rhyme in no tyme
    turn you around and have you headspun
    with a drop of a dime

    Talent to knock the taste out of your mouth
    or soothe you with the tongue
    that's killing you softly with all sorts of words
    that just continue to come

    The mind of a poet is a twisted intellectual
    who has escaped from his cocoon and exploded with pure delight
    or slithered through with anger and pain
    who could be...
    an accountant, waiter, receptionist, bartender
    salesman, cashier, president, taxi driver
    nurse, mailman, fire fighter,secretary
    pimp, businesswoman, grandfather, grandmother
    or just your homie you chilling with

    You have the characteristics
    as if you were a magician
    to make your flow magical and transitional
    as it moves smooth like a babies bottom

    Words that flow through your mind
    are cheaper by the dozen
    Their mystical, enticing, romantic,sexual
    sensual, harsh, honest, beautiful
    and cascade
    down... down... down...
    onto paper

    The mind of a poet is a twisted intellectual
    who has escaped from his cocoon and exploded with pure delight
    or slithered through with anger and pain
    who has
    no time... no time ... no time...
    to waste

    ..... Cause a mind is a terrible thing to waste
    Poet.........

    The mind of a poet, we can be so many things not only on paper, but in reality. I appreciated this flow, as I'm sure all the poets will. Flow on poet.

    Poet...I confess...."I am a twisted intellectual"...
    who as escaped just as you...
    belonging to the secret society that is "Free..."
    in every aspect of the word..."Free..."
    slithering in every direction...
    the written and spoken word instructs me...


    Awesome Work... :jumping:

    Consider me..."Impressed"...

    Keep your mind twisted and your pen flowing...
    One luv,
    Sage
