    Brown shades and enclaves of cornered days
    that are creeping to my time in this sand.
    **** those who don't like this man, because this is for me.
    This is for the lost innocence that has been in the
    wind--hourly, weekly--and month to month.
    Soul in the trunk of the car of life--got to make money to live
    right. Right??
    Am if I'm wrong, I'm a bum, shunned by the
    masses living behind the glass getting wet--they'll all forget me,
    if I don't live life correctly. poetry can't pay the bills.
    ****, I want to live but the plan has my hands tied--
    from corporate america to giving back to america,
    there is no time for me. So of course
    there is no lady, or babies, because there is no bread.
    And the cheddar has molded, the only paper that is folded
    is my poetry.
    So I give this to thee, to do my part to add to the prosperity of the
    art-form--excuse me for rhyming profusely, or misspelling my words--
    this is from the heart, taking me back to innocence daily.
    For I've hit stages and blazed pieces so hard that the crowd got a real bad contact---and I loved that, jonesin' for that next tract.
    But now there is no time, for there has to be money to live and the grind will suffer, I just hope to leave you with enough to cover you---
    until I return

    Nabraska, Most of what you say I can feel
    But Poetry can pay many of a souls bills!
    I have sold 2,500 worth of just one poem
    You just need to find buyers and then close’em

    Great poem you have made
    Now go and seize a great day

    Today read and reply to my thread
    " Dear Alpha Male, please help me, signed the slave from torment land"

    or show nuff real----------Thank You

    Oh, if poetry could fill the pockets the way it feeds the soul...you would be one of the rich ones. This struck a chord with me, I loved this piece, very emotive.
