    I write poetry to tell stories and for expression. A lot of my inspiration for my poems come from my own life experiences, or conversations I've had with others. BTW, I'm new here, but I hope that I can post some of my poetry on here soon, if that's okay.

    That's how i started out. Using life experiences.. It was very theraputic for me.

    Absolutely you can post your stuff here.. Your more than welcome to ;)

    poetry is the best way to express own emotions painting with literal devices.
    In song you can clear your thought, but in poetry You'll clear your thoughts even in a better gratification.

    Thats some real talk Sovo, I wish my writing had that emotion in it

    The only way to put more emotion into your writing is to feel more pain. and thats not something to look forward to.

    if i would ever allow myself to let go and flow my shit, i could make it a job. thats the part im afraid of.

    i have a big cousin who does it for a living, and he dont even know how much i idolized him while growing up, or, how much better than him I am.

    and he's a facebook friend of mine. But if he ever comes home, and we have a family get together, its gonna be "on!"

  • “Certified Proof” July,23rd,2013
    We’re all”decision-maker’s”some of us are real and other’s are fueled by the vapor’s;I have a myriad of ladyfriend’s that I have yet to address about”us”and what could be and what they won’t ever see.I focus on what you say to”me”and”consistency”,the true sistas will(prevail)and the fake one’s stay done.
    I can’t force you to”be”what you’re not ready to embrace&see”mentally”:
    Some ladies may ask”what about you”??I’m a loyal&true Sunni ndugu,I’m not here for second or third place,I’m here for the one who was built&created who took first and can’t be faded!!!She’s a reflection of”me”we’re not perfect but we wisely select.
    I’m not here to name name’s or play”monopoly”Certified proof allow’s me to size you up&see,my auntie(wannita)asked me what’s going on with you??You’re solo and out of character where’s your boo??My past isn’t perfect and 2013 I wisely select what’s best,so it’s a calculated process;
    Certified proof reveal’s”The Truth”I shake my head in disbelief when Allah show’s”me”what I need to see,I’m here to”help”and not be’used”I’m here to”win”and not”lose”:
    This is a universal process that I have chosen to address,so that includes your sexual orientation&ethnicity who you really are that’s what I’m gonna see.
    “Check yourself”before we meet because your”body language”and”decision-making”will speak;Some might think I’m to”deep”but I’m only”writing”to”teach”the truth&clarity is what you need to seek:
    All of my work(define’s me)and with Allah’s guidance&help I stay rooted in a universal reality(definition??)with or without”me”;I’ve had my turn and this is what I’ve learned,and it’s true because”Certified Proof”reveal’s”you”!!!!
    Salaam,Bro.Mark X(aka)”D”Minus;
  • Your sexual orientation&ethnicity on that one part.

    When im moved by an event in my life I typically write to share my joy and feelings.
    Express what I'm going thru, what others may be going thru or have been through.
    I wouldn't list as an escape but def as therapy for something I can get out of my head that may bother me or may be just weighing heavy on my mind positively or negatively.

    I try to relate, relay and convey my truth in that moment.

    Ya I see my influence all over the IC
    Niggas start threads and title them just like me
    My influence everywhere like the Swoosh from a Nike
    Even my so called cheapseat enemies
    Dont wanna be like Jordan,
    but wanna bow, WOW, and be just like me
    If you're reading this its too late to argue that point
    Most likely
    Call me all types of names but those faggots in real life would never fight me
    Had a battle I was suppose to have with Tupacfan
    But after reading her response I realized it wasn't worth it and had a change of plans
    People say I'm the Reason why The Reason fell off,
    I didn't know y'all really thought of me as an actual God
    And giving me all the blame proves from the very beginning that I actually held all of the cards
    Its funny cuz I bet if we could switch roles
    Youd would want to be the mod
    But instead you notice everything I do
    Blow out of proportion with ya fake facades
    Just comes to show me all you closet fans are the worst of frauds
    Ya say you don't care
    Bet you gonna talk about this though fuck faggot
    So go try angles,
    My pineal gland is fully aware
    Beantown.

    To understand my inner worth
    In order to avoid the invisible friend
    that want to make amends with every argument
    constantly telling me that I don't have what it takes to be
    better than the few or just a plain unusual individual
    religious propaganda is my stance to the poetry
    except I'm not trying to take a tithe
    I'm aiming for the wise and focus
    lead them into the past times of rhyme scriptures
    elevation is the motivation
    so I put it down on the keyboard despite my promising decline
    college middle age broken bastard
    casting spells on my future karma
    harming the existence of my resistance
    like a dragon ball z episode
    bare witness to the fitness of a man flexing for five episodes
    screaming and growing
    expelling and exhaling my inner demons
    that's been seeking through my pores from ages
    of ridicule and bitter feuds with my former self
    trying to adjust to being a man of good wealth
    to the average mass of people that have trauma of baby momma drama
    and fatherless ambitions despising my reasoning towards breaking the chain
    I write to recite the words of pain to help my fellow youth maintain
    and gain wisdom that this word ain't shit
    you are a promising king
    for now I give you this words as armor and rhymes for the moat
    try to maintain as the army within yourself protects you
    no weapon shall form against thee who trust in the epitome of the beginning
    there's no end to you
    Paprika
