A Heartfelt Welcome

To those of you who call me friend, those of you that call me love, those of you who call me brother, those of you that call me son, those of you who call me hero, & those of you who don't know me at all: I welcome you to the mind of a man who's destined to save the world...
1 word at a time.

1st New "Work" of 2010

Finally, a mean case of "writer's block" is erased with my new piece finished last night. Ironically, this was written in a matter of minutes via BlackBerry @ a club while waiting for friends to arrive. (Oh, & being a little "under the influence" lol) Hopefully, you guys enjoy. I don't want to say it's personal... But... (Kanye shrug)

Superman. Out.

So This Is What It Feels Like

A truck filled with pain, agony, and distress
Going back and forth running over my chest

Like watching a loved one
Holding on to the edge of a cliff
And you’re their only hope extending a hand
Only to see them slip

So this is what it feels like huh?

Like I ate a glass full of
Thumbtacks and nails
Like the sun had a reverse effect
And instead of tanning a white person
They turned pale

Like scales covered your whole body
And boils spread in your mouth
Like you lost the ability to tell the difference
Between north and south

This is what it feels like?

Like you’re standing alone in a crowded room
Like seeing a person who looked like they
Just woke up out of a tomb
Like hearing your child say
“I wish I never came out your womb”
Like hoping but realizing things won’t change soon

Is this what it’s supposed to feel like?!

Like Diddy after J. Lo
Singing “I Need A Girl”
Like coming to terms
That your favorite thing is out of style
i.e. the Jheri Curl
Like being a Super Hero
Yet you can’t save the World

This is what it feels like!
Someone said “This can’t be life”
You can’t be right
God tell me I’m wrong.... please
Because love can’t possibly
Have this effect on me
