Folks ....
People AREN'T Joking " ... !!!  
  
When They Say I'm ......
    
..... " OUTSPOKEN " .... !!!!!  
    
Sometimes I Say Things ...  
That Leave People ...  
....... " BROKEN " ......... !!!!!!!!  
    
Some People Have Cried ...    
Because of The Way ...  
I Speak About ... " Life " ...  
    
Suffering PAIN ...  
And Dealing With STRIFE ... !!!  
    
But Things That I Say ...  
Are Simple Reflections ...    
On Things In My Sight ...    
    
Sometimes They Are WRONG ... !!!  
Sometimes They Are RIGHT .... !!!!!!!!  
    
But Speaking My Mind ...  
Should NOT Be A CRIME ... !!!!!  
    
My Words Are Designed ...  
To ... Simply Invite ...  
A Place Within Darkness ...  
  
Where ... CLARITY SHINES ... !!!  
And LIGHT Is ... DEFINED ... !!!!!    
    
Words I Now Write ...  
Are Simply Inclined ...  
To ... Lyrically Dine ...  
Recline And Be PRIMED ...  
    
To Do ... What Is WISE ...    
And Pay CLOSE ATTENTION ... !!!  
To REALITY'S ... Signs ... !!!  
    
On ... How To Live ...  
A POSITIVE LIFE ... !!!  
    
I'd Rather DO THAT ... !!!  
Than Live Life To Fight ... ?!?  
    
I'm NOT In A Rush ...  
To ... Lay Down And DIE ... !!!!!  
    
Since I Was A Kid ...  
I've Always Been Quick ...  
To Air My Opinions ...    
And Speak About Things ...  
    
I LOVE TO Enlist ... !!!  
The Use of ... " EXPRESSION "  
It's CLEARLY A Gift ... !!!  
And Now An OBSESSION ... !!!!!  
    
Poems KEEP COMING ... !!!  
Just Like A PROCESSION ... !!!!!  
    
But Some Do NOT Like ... !!!  
The Words I Recite ...    
  
And DON'T Like The Sight ...  
of My Lips ... By A Mic' ... !!!!!  
    
But Hey That's Okay ... !!!  
    
They REALLY Miss Out ...    
At The End of The Day ... !!!    
    
My Wordplay Has ...    
..... " SUBSTANCE " .....  
    
EVEN ...  
When I RAGE ... !!!!!  
    
But NEVER Indulges ...  
In ... Inciting HATE ... !!!!!!  
    
But CLEARLY Reflects ...  
My Mood When IRATE ... !!!!!  
    
But My Moods ...  
Like The Weather ...  
Show CHANGE EVERYDAY ... !!!!!  
    
I Can't Be The Same ...  
And Always Be ... " tame " ... !?!    
    
Those Who Want That ...  
Like ... CONTROLLING Brains ... !!!!!  
    
And CLEARLY Are People ...  
Who ... NEED TO REFRAIN ... !!!!!!!  
From Trying To .... " LIMIT " ....  
What People .... " Should Say " .... !!!  
    
We Need To Be Mindful ...  
of Those Who Relay ...  
A Message That GLORIFIES ...    
.... DEVIANT Ways .... !!!!!!  
    
Those Who Spread HATE ...  
And MURDEROUS Traits ...    
SHOULD BE LOCKED AWAY ... !!!!!  
    
But That's Just MY VIEW ...  
At The End of The Day ... !!!  
    
Freedom of Speech ...  
Is ... BEAUTY To Me ... !!!  
    
NOT Trying To Teach ... !!!    
Or Trying To Preach ... !!!  
    
We ALL Have A Mouth ...  
I'd Rather Use ... " SPEECH " ... !!!  
Than ... PHYSICAL CLOUTS ...    
That KNOCK People DOWN ... !!!!!  
    
Brainpower FEEDS ....  
Off Wordplay That SPEAKS ...  
To Souls Within People ...    
Who Choose ... NOT TO SEE ... !!!!!  
    
A World Where We STOP ...  
Our ... Freedom of Speech ... !!!  
    
Music Is ... SO GREAT ...    
When Wordplay Relates ...  
A Feeling That TOUCHES ...  
And SENSUALLY CLUTCHES ...  
    
SOMETHING ... DEEP Inside ... !!!  
And HELPS PAIN ... Subside .............................................  
    
This Is One Reason ....    
I Now LOVE TO WRITE ... !!!!!  
    
Because My Expression ...  
HELPS CHANNEL Aggression ... !!!  
    
And Helps Me To STRENGTHEN ...  
My Use of .... Expression .... !!!  
    
My ... OUTSPOKEN Nature ... 
Has Brought Me My TROUBLES ... !!!!!  
    
But Has Been My SAVIOUR ... !!!  
And Keeps Me From FORCES ...  
    
DARKER Than Vader's ... !!!  
  
GREEN Is The Colour ...  
of YES ... My Light Sabre ... !!!!!  
    
GREEN As In Country ...  
Where Animals ROAM .................................................................­  
    
EXPRESSING Themselves ...  
In .... EVERY Zone .... !!!  
    
We Sit And Watch Them ...    
When They Use EXPRESSION ...    
And CANNOT DEFEND ...  
    
The Vision of Them ...  
Behind A ZOO Fence ... !!!  
    
Don't Get It Confused ...  
I'm Simply Suggesting ...    
That Airing Our Views ...    
Is SURELY  A Thing ...  
We Should NOT REFUSE ... !!!  
    
EVEN When People ...    
Say Things That ABUSE ... !!!  
    
Because You Then KNOW ...  
If You Can Be ... COOL ...    
    
And Even If NOT ...  
May Help You To ... Choose ...  
    
A ... POSITIVE Way ...    
To RESOLVE Your Issues ... !!!  
    
Being OUTSPOKEN ...    
Is NOT Always Good ... !!!!!  
    
But Does Help A Person ...    
To Give You Some Clues ...  
On What ... Fuels Their Mood ...    
  
And May Give You PROOF ...  
of What They're Into ...    
    
I Now Prefer THAT ... !!!  
Than Being With ... " Those " ...    
Who Simply .... " Sit Back " .... !!!  
And Wait For The Chance  ...  
To Make An ATTACK ... !!!!!  
    
What Is It THEY LACK ... ?  
That Makes Them DO THAT ... ?!?  
    
Some Folks Are Like This ...  
And That's Just A FACT ... !!!!!  
    
These Are The People ...  
.... Whose Words ....  
  
I'm Now ... " Quoting " ...  
    
And NO I'm NOT JOKING ... !!!!!  
    
These Are The People ...  
Who Say .... " Virgil's " ....  
    
.... " OUTSPOKEN " .... !!!!!!!!
Hmmm, what to say .... ???

I'm an outspoken fella, through usage of letters,
sometimes an upsetter, so don't get irate
because of wordplay, that's from yesterday .....

Don't let my words fret ya ....
Artists should know ... BETTER ... !!!!
