    The Scapegoat

    2 months ago

    Does Life ever seem unfair to you? Does it ever seem like problems pile on top of you, while everyone else is coasting through life? I know I feel that way. Or more accurately, Felt that way. This is my poem, with a clearer hindsight, of feeling like "The Scapegoat" in Life......

    "Listen Up" is a typical poem for me that I begin when I'm in a horrible place and then use my writing as self- therapy bringing myself back to a confident, upbeat, thankful, faithful mood. Swag even!

    My feeble attempt to capture the meaning of this phrase in the Lord's Prayer: "Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven." This was a Fun poem to write!!!

    I came kinda weak with my first "edited" version. This is a much stronger version of my take on Eminem's "Till I Collapse". I think you'll like it

  • You're The Man

    You're The Man

    2 months ago

    I've heard a few mixtapes lately that I like, and realized that my poem "Entheos" (Jay-Z- "Empire State of Mind") would mesh great with Aloe Blacc's "The Man". It turned out well

  • The Man

    The Man

    In creating "The Man" I took the liberties of combining a hook in Drake's "The Motto" (creating my own motto) and the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling.

    "This metaphor's to roll the dice/ Comparing Grace to human vice"- This is a rather bold attempt to explain the concept of Grace and my own battle with Evil but putting it into gambling terminology

    "The Purpose of Life isn't all that deep or profound." - I wrote this when I was in a good mindset (in pt.2). Part 3 is the opposite- the jeckyl to my hyde mindset of scarcity. Frustrating- alarming

    "Come After Me, I'm a Man!"

    When I wrote this poem I was numb, stunned, and beside myself with rage! There was yet another devastating attack on my loved ones.........and I knew who did it.............and it was ALL MY FAULT!!!

    I have adopted the word "Entheos" as the name of my alter-ego. In Greek it means "having the God within." Also, Entheos is the derivative of the worth "Enthusiasm", which means "inspired by", therefore very appropriate!

    Good or Evil? Right or Wrong? Black or White? Can our existence be boiled down to a "tragic pantomime" between 2 polar opposite forces, and must we choose between the two? Why?

    -“Surely” is a play on words for the name of my fictitious queen of Assurance- Shirley. This was written several years ago, but it still holds true in my life today. To me this poem is about Confidence. About knowing that I CAN. Knowing that if I set my mind to something, it’s a Certainty....
