    I could make you bob your head

    Or write lyrics that lead you to bed

    But I am beyond just simple dribble

    I seek to be the answer to the riddle

    Expound your mind to maximum capacity

    For anybody can write a mindless ditty

    I want to be the conciousness of your soul

    The reason you able to stand proud & bold

    I would scribe lines till my hands went slack

    If I knew it would even get one soul on track

    I will be that voice crying in the wilderness

    If it leads just one child out of the darkness

    I rage hard against the all consuming "man"

    But my real cause is helping my fellow man

    I'll be writing motivation till all the rivers runs dry

    or till the day after the sky turn red and pigs fly

    I write on notions of truth
    that tell a story even a clue
    lyrics flow wit depth in love
    to rerach every soul it will hug
    to change a heart wit all my might
    show realness beyond da light
    shower purity this i fight
    til my hands go blue
    i'll verse the greatest of truth
    in a conciously way
    this why i write today
    but know i can make a woman scream
    think of me in her dreams
    but i'll just keep it right
    without all da reverse sight
    so i'll just continue da love path
    until i reach all into everlast .


    This flow of yours was off the hook you drop it smooth real and on point i just loved it....
