    Ready? Aiight then lets get started
    Writing is my mission and the audience is my target
    My brain is working, but my pen is not
    So I’m just typing until I find a plot
    Keep mixing up a lot
    Of theories until I got
    Enough serums to fill up my pot

    My paper’s empty, but this screen is full
    Of words, phrases, and lines to pull
    My audience into my brain’s pool
    That over fill’s my brains skull
    Given the inspiration
    I can say I’m motivated
    To use these fingertips god created
    To type words n try to embrace em
    I got a lot to teach, but even more to learn
    These thoughts are fire n they’re ready to burn
    Anybody who’s ready to get hot and heated
    I’m just warming up now… wait til I’m completed
    I was given the vision
    So I gotta get the ambition
    To show yall this wisdom
    Ssssssssssshhhhhhh… listen
    To the sound of my words rhythm

    This page is overflowing
    But I gotta keep going
    Cuz the more these lines are growing
    The more the beauty of poetry is showing
    I got a lot to say, but even more to hear
    Writing is not just my passion, more like a career
    I live this, feel this, eat this, and walk this
    See… I don’t just type this, I talk this
    It’s more than poetry, its hip-hop mixed with the way of life
    From topic to topic, emotion to emotion, day to night
    It’s heavy on the mind, but good for the soul
    It touches ur heart, then digs deep like a mole

    Aiight now, watch me work this, watch me roll
    Watch me rise, watch me fly, never fold
    I’ve been living this for so long
    That I couldn’t even stop if I did think it was wrong
    But its not and I’m gonna prove it 2 u
    Cuz u were stuck at one point, but I moved u an inch or 2
    Cuz it gives u the rush, gives u the drive
    Keeps u fresh, keeps u alive
    It gives u the aspiration to wanna strive
    Cuz it’s hard as rock and digs deep like knives

    I know I hit ur mind and I guarantee it wont be deleted
    If not, would you like me to repeat it?
    If u still don’t see the magnificence, I guess u’ll never see it
    But I know u do, so I guess… mission completed.
