    It began way back when,
    I was usuing a pencil, instead of a pen.
    Taking notes in class, running the halls
    with my pants half-way down my a**,
    but I passed. With the protection of a
    professor who posed prose to my frontal lobe
    making me think.
    The ink ran off ways to survive on love
    instead of learning new ways to hate;
    so days became hazy, when young ladies were having babies
    at 13--this was far from a dream, this was my beginnings
    of poetry.

    It became my sanctuary, from the scary and misunderstood;
    from them woods in the hood, Nebraska livin' not that good,
    racist suckas, drug husslas, and busta a** cops....destee,
    ya boy has gone through a lot.

    But I learned, kept yearnin to do betta, get better, try new things
    succeed in jumpin through rings, define the meanings and realities
    of that which surrounds me.
    Love poetry, live spoken word, from my pen and pad,
    to the stage and the curb, these are just some words,
    but for some--life itself--not worried bout the wealth, just the health.
    Because I plan to get old, see wrinkles unfold, bounce
    grandchild on knees when the trees are frozen and the outside cold--
    just hold me.
    And give me some ink, a nice old pad and some time to think...
    I'll come back with sounds and phrases, memories
    of old days that craved to be played from the banks
    of the past--
    oh just let it last!!!

    I can imagine the insides of everlasting evenings with individuals
    who inspire with rhetoric of righteoness--blessing the stress be relieved from brains.....
    Sometime it gets hard to maintain within' the frame of frantic faces
    frowning and fronting just to bring you down....
    But I'm that **** good swimmer who refuses to drown,
    The Creator crowned me with locks--so I'm positive when poets are around.
    Keep doin' your thing you are kings and queens keep your mental on an upswing and your beliefs real high

    and know that in Nabraska, you'll have a friend for life.....



    I do apologize if this is a little choppy, but it's fresh off the brain.

    Not choppy at all. It flowed from your mind, and that's why it was so real. And I loved the way you explained the whys of how the poetry began for you. Like gempis, I was all into it poet.
