    long ago
    i traded in my passion for prose
    for the fashion of rap flows
    thoughts of cashing in on those
    had my nose open i suppose

    ok i'm frontin - thats only part of the reason though
    the love i had shown
    had been abused...we all know how that goes
    to the point i said F this love stuff its too emotional
    it aint gettin me no where but stabbed in the heart
    i'd rather blaze tracks apart
    let these words take me far...i already got a jumpstart
    spit 16 bars
    over the latest beat
    or find me on the corner in a cipher acappela in the street
    poetry taught me breath control, precision and timing
    so watch me execute at 120 beats per minute the most perfect rhyming
    no record contracts to be signing
    i still dont care
    this is still better than some chick telling me she just dont care

    but then i met you and you changed the game
    the verses composed aint the same
    the chorus a bit too tame
    did i just pick a R&B track to rhyme over? what a **** shame
    i hadnt put pen to pad with love as the theme in a while
    i hadnt put pen to pad with the love of a queen and the thoughts of her smile
    my mind was witty with the wordplay but combine my heart to the brainchild
    it completely changes the style
    not sure whats next but i owe the return to you
    a poet's come home - a return long overdue.
