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.

Superman Song Of The Week

One of the smartest things I did was to follow my favorite rapper, Kanye West, on twitter... With all the controversy surrounding his behavior, sayings, and lifestyle Kanye was away from the spotlight for quite some time... But he's back and better than ever... He's announced via twitter that he will be releasing a new song every friday stopping on Christmas... It's been dubbed G.O.O.D. (Getting Out Our Dreams) Friday... He stated it's not going to be just his songs but i'm sure he'll be involved with every one he puts out. The first song he released just last night is my Song Of The Week... "Monster" is apparently (Kanye states) the second song from a 5-song collaboration album with fellow rapper Jay-Z... The song not only features them but also Rick Ross (who really isn't needed on the track at all), Bon Iver (an Indie Rock Group) and my new favorite female rapper (Sorry, Eve) Nicki Minaj (She had the best verse on the song)... So here it is ladies & gents:

S.O.T.W.: "Monster" by Kanye West & Jay-Z ft. Rick Ross, Bon Iver, & Nicki Minaj

Best Line: Kanye: "Get that Goose and Malibu, I call it 'MaliBooYa'"
Jay-Z: "Everybody wanna know what my achilles heel is... LOVE! I don't get enough of it"
Nicki: "Hotter than a Middle Eastern climate, Tony Matterhorn... Dutty Wine it"

Distant Closeness

You're right next to me
Yet Light Years away
I'm stuck on the now
You? Yesterday
Oh I believe in it but
Was your heart in it
Do you realize
That though I'm lookin into your eyes
It feels like we're lookin at 2 different colors of skies
Night & Day if you will
Not on the same page, Still
I wait for you to keep proofreading any misleading errors in our story
Erasing memories attached to our glory
All I ask is that you catch up and we write together
During any weather
We are to write our history with both our right hands grasped on one pen
But then is it a possiblity?
When, though we may be conjoined physically,
We are surgically separated emotionally and mentally
I'm laying with you
But you're lying to me
Cuz I'm in your head and you wanna ask me
Should we?
I see you smell you and breathe your air
It doesn't matter whether or not I can touch you
Either way
You're really not there

Grilled Cheese Sammich (Haiku)

Browned on the outside
And melted on the inside
My people suffer

This Day In History

Today is Barack Hussien Obama's birthday... Now, though many are excited and giving the Nation's First African-American (in some way) President major shout-outs, I'm cool... Because I don't see it as his day... This is my brother's day... Mr. Matt Burroughs was born this day 24 years ago... I've had the privilege of knowing him for 6 of those years... "Little Big Brother" is what I've called him since ATL first came out lol... Because although I am older (and may have a little more sense sometimes lol) I still look at him as my "Big Bro"... One of the very few to inspire me to write poetry, his artistic instincts are uncanny... His names are endless: Musician, singer, writer, poet, amateur sports anaylst, comedian, son, brother and father being the most recent... (Thanks to him I've been crowned "Uncle Greg"... coolest thing ever)... It's been hilarious times everytime Matt & I met up during and after that 1 year stint I had at Drexel University (Funny story how we became friends)... This 1 is for you bro... and MJ 2... Let the good times roll...

Happy Born Day to Matt "Coolest Person in the Universe & That Includes Aliens" Burroughs

Tell the 'rents I said Hey and thanks... For History has been made today

The Refusal

I have a lot on the brain as of now... This is not one of my finest moments... How does one cope with not achieving their goals?... Especially ones they've worked hard and diligently for... The first four days of this month have been a huge struggle emotionally as well as physically... Granted, I'll admit that I've allowed myself to get into this "funk"... But my determination, desire, and pride has overcome me... I refuse to believe I'm not capable... I refuse to believe I don't meet requirements... I refuse to believe I'm not who I was born to be: A leader... A pioneer... An living example of what some should follow or aspire to be... With that being said... I'm going to fight for my sanity... A Bishop told me "In order to get something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done"... I'm not a fighter... But here I am... Waiting to hear that bell

Superman. Out.
