Off,
peaceful, dull,
yawning, cuddling, lying down,
Take a breath, look them in the eye,
ending, remembering, smiling,
bitter, sweet,
Goodbye.
A matching poem to Microphone On... I decided to follow the same themes, but reminding how sometimes good things come to an end. This was to represent how I took a huge YouTube break in making content for my education.

Sometimes, being someone ‘big’ is everyone’s dreams, but sometimes being ‘big’ isn’t always the most important thing in life itself – or at least, in my personal opinion.

I’m personally someone who wants to love life the best they can, show people we are more than just ‘people’ and we can do so much more for our future as the human race.

However, being in the spotlight 24/7 is tiring, sometimes, people want a break, or a moment to reflect and see what they are showing off to the world. Do you like it?

Sometimes moments away in the shade are a lot more enjoyable than moments with thousands of people.

Speak
gentle, honest
drawing, talking, trying
This is what you can do, this is what you can’t
stealing, screaming, threatening
dangerous, loud
Victim
When I started ranting, it was originally on PrincessElizabeth013 a young female sonic artist who stole art, threatened people and did quite a few terrible things. She was very short tempered.

For some reason, I felt a way to build myself back up was to do a rant, but not just that, I saw her acting the way that the woman in  Headlines! Was acting and I had to say something. Little did I know that would change so many lives forever.

I know the ranting community has been around for years, it’s been here and not had the best reputation, but as a young kid with a need to complain, I felt it was a perfect way to make content, and soon enough many more started joining in.

Except, I regret doing it.
Some people are worth a public callout, if they bring danger to those around them but I couldn’t help but feel I ruined PrincessElizabeth013’s life when I made those videos and many others after that. I had managed to accidentally create the same toxicity I wanted to fight against. I was just too naive to see and it seemed I just wanted to bully people for the sake of bullying them. I was obsessed with making her life a ****, it was just disgusting, the worst part? I would receive an applaud for what I did. I was praised.  I shouldn’t of been praised and now I try my best in hopefully giving her a better life by being her genuine friend.

It doesn’t change the past, but I feel better knowing I can help her when I can.

When young, kids make mistakes, PrincessElizabeth013 grew up with many people attempting to harass her, bait her, treat her badly and soon enough it fossilised into her being too anxious to show any kind of emotions. Don’t get me wrong, she has her flaws.  I just felt bad for putting them on display.

Overall, it was just my introduction to the ranting community and becoming a YouTuber. I tried to show this in a Diamante form, which was quite hard considering I was not talking about objects and more or less talking about speech.
Once it was a wildfire,
the love.
Now its a candle, I have to protect
from the merciless wind.

Broke, sitting with half plate
Pasta, butter, spice
Shuffle through my old clothes
I used to look nice

What is nice, but smaller?
Smaller, smaller, still
String bean and potatoes
Go fine together

The grocer tries to tell me,
"Divide, conquer, divide."
"What is nice, but smaller?"

I guess the grocer's right

I was a fiend ... before I became a teen
I melted microphone instead of cones of ice cream
Music-orientated so when hip-hop was originated
Fitted like pieces of puzzles, complicated
Cause I grabbed the mic and try to say, "yes, y'all"
They tried to take it, and say that I'm too small
Cool, cause I don't get upset
I kick a hole in the speaker, pull the plug, then I jet
Back to the lab, without a mic to grab
So then I add all the rhymes I had
One after the other one, then I make another one
To diss the opposite then ask if the brother's done
I get a craving like I fiend for nicotine
But I don't need a cigarette, know what I mean?
I'm raging, ripping up the stage and
Don't it sound amazing cause every rhyme is made and
Thought of, cause it's sort of, an addiction
Magnetized by the mixing
Vocals, vocabulary, your verses, you're stuck in
The mic is a Drano, volcanoes erupting
Rhymes overflowing, gradually growing
Everything is written in a code, so it can coincide
My thought's a guide
48 tracks to slide
The invincible, microphone fiend Rakim
Spread the word, cause I'm in
E-F-F-E-C-T
A smooth operator operating correctly
But back to the problem, I gotta habit
You can't solve it, silly rabbit
The prescription is a hypertone that's thorough when
I fiend for a microphone like ******
Soon as the bass kicks, I need a fix
Gimme a stage and a mic and a mix
And I'll put you in a mood or is it a state of
Unawareness? Beware, it's the re-animator
A menace to a microphone, a lethal weapon
An assassinator, if the people ain't stepping
You see a part of me that you never seen
When I'm fiending for a microphone, I'm the microphone fiend

After 12, I'm worse than a Gremlin
Feed me hip-hop and I start trembling
The thrill of suspense is intense, you're horrified
But this ain't the cinemas or Tales From the Dark Side
By any means necessary, this is what has to be done
Make way cause here I come
My DJ cuts material
Grand imperial
It's a must that I bust any mic you hand to me
It's inherited, it runs in the family
I wrote the rhyme that broke the bull's back
If that don't slow 'em up, I carry a full pack
Now I don't want to have to let off, you should have kept off
You didn't keep the stage warm, step off
Ladies and gentleman, you're about to see
A pastime, hobby about to be
Taken to the maximum, I can't relax see, I'm
Hype as a hypochondriac cause the rap be one
**** of a antidote, something you can't smoke
More than dope, you're trying to move away but you can't, you're broke
More than cracked up, you should have backed up
For those that act up need to be more than smacked up
Any entertainer, I got a torture chamber
One on one and I'm the remainder
So close your eyes and hold your breath
And I'mma hit ya with the blow of death
Before you go, you'll remember ya seen
The fiend of a microphone, I'm the microphone fiend
The microphone fiend
Microphone Fiend by - Eric B & Rakim
**Rakim is a Supreme Favorite lyricist of mine and this rap is
1 of My Top 5 favorite Rhymes of All Time!**
Not to be out shined his partner in crime Eric was a mastermind at the time on the steel wheels that underline all of their tracks. Take a moment and recognize and respect the raw untamed talent that these two present.

A dream has come true today.

Dressed in white, with a blue scarf,
Everything seems just cool as can be,
Looking so sweet to see.

An Angel sits on a tall chair, In front of a microphone.

Glass walls have ears, and there are no hands on the clock.

Happy as can be.
The Angel sings with a;
soulful, beautiful, sweet, pure, powerful, strong, pure, upbeat, lush, charismatic, different,  appealing...
Voice.

To children.
From out of the book of Worship
She sings of love, hope and friendship,

On this dreamy day.

I am curtained behind a small stage
humming slowly in bright red colors
into a microphone
that is held not by my own hand
but by that of her
and the crowd stands slowly
their hands coming together
in a crescendo
of applause
to say that I should go on
let me sing more
and they never have to see me
I can be your favorite idol
but don't look at me
no, please don't, don't look at me
just listen to my voice
luring you into the dark
so I can touch you once more
and you never have to know my name
just listen to my voice
low against your ear
with sultry vibrations
to alert you
to those behind you
so you will fight for me
until you return
and I will wait.

— The End —
