    my poetic tenure has no format
    it's just a cornucopia of words that describe
    what it's like to be a man in america and black
    my thoughts on paper are sometimes exact
    and sometimes they are very abstract
    i never follow the leader...so this is where i'm at
    standing in a field...by myself...with a golden shield
    i say to the powers that be...i will never kneel or yeild
    this is me...and continious poetic expressions is what i wield
    i'm not the one to twist a cap back to get peeled
    i just speak da truth to da young black youth...cause my lips are never sealed
    i do this not for fame or fortune...i just get a kick out of microphone scorchin
    i'm that cat that some want to tar and feather then set to torchin
    cause sh_t still aint right
    and ima speak on it with a black mans insight
    while some africans may not consider me black cause i'm too light
    haters can't stop my might
    your fight is my fight
    your blight is my blight
    i will neva step on my peoples bodies
    to reach any particular height
    so this is where i'm at
    and this poem is just a protype
    the poet that wears many hats
    the slugger that carries many bats
    like the baseball furies
    i neva served on any jurys
    cause justice is blind
    like hellen keller trying to find
    the right color to reflect the right emotion
    without music's lubricating lotion
    my words would be silent
    and i wouldn't have the chance to start any commotion
    f_k boasting...my karmatic ebb is coasting
    and it's my notion...that is ish doesn't change
    we'll be the next one's swallowed up by the ocean...

    this is where i'm at....
    i hope you can see that...

    yeah I see where you at now
    and the growth
    from where you once were
    then to now
    a poet who wears many hats
    fliiping the script
    when you gotta be like that
    Cause it's not just words thats drip
    but knowledge that's spit
    spreading on a higher power
    the basic
    I
    C
    U
    Peace
    (wonderful scribt)

    What I see is that you are just doing "you", blessing Destee's forum with your words that aren't about causing pain, just about being real. Diggin this vibe Khasm...I really enjoyed this piece.

    oooh, this one had chills, great scribe

    I admire your style, and it deserves respect,
    not only the words, but the message you carried behind it
    Yes you are a part of the plight
    So feel free brother to spread insight

    A prime example of how the pen can be the sword.
