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 ... !!!!
Spirit and matter
The light and the dark
left and right brained
the Ying and the Yang
an outspoken mute
a chaotic plan
mortal and eternal
a pacifist Warrior
ambidextrous hands
A foot on the ground
A head in the clouds
Silence and sound
A teacher a pupil
Reserved with no Scruples
A genius a fool
slave and the master
man I am God
feline and dog
reason and Insanity
A well planned Calamity
I am BALANCE

Today is the day
my existence fades away
ever since high school days
invisible is the way I stayed
I would give up everything
just to fit in.

Outcast, misfit
I'll never fit in
tried to take the time
to do things right
But I've just had enough
I want to give up.

So pathetic
they just don't get it
I can't take it anymore
I wanna tell you
But I'm scared about it
Because I don't know
how you'll react.

Outcast, misfit
I'll never fit in
tried to take the time
to do things right
But I've just had enough
I want to give up.

It's not right
I hate my life
Wish I was gone (alright)
Hand me downs
Trying to make you proud
But I just can't take
I just can't take it now.

Outcast, misfit
I'll never fit in
tried to take the time
to do things right
But I've just had enough
I want to give up.

Saving face
is not
my saving grace.

I made myself small for you
My outspoken ways behind me
My "latin spice" put in the cupboard
Because, I stupidly thought that
That was what you wanted.

Only to be texted a couple months later with,
"I just don't feel a connection anymore"

I have spent three months
trying to get used to the latin spices in my food
Trying to remember what it was to be me.
The original me, not the modified Americanized version

Trying to remember my outspoken ways
My eagerness for learning that left me once I met you
And trying to forget the thrill of mischief that you,
and only you,
could have shown me.
//the original me was better than the sequel\\
I am*    what iam.
I will make no apologies for that
**Take me as you find me

she's outspoken
yet she shies away
she's blunt
yet she's some kind of fake
i wonder how vague this girl can get
i just don't understand her
For once in my life I am speaking out
Not just in the form of a violent excuse of a poem
But to the faces of those who make me pout
For once in my life I'm saying what I mean
It takes courage to be honest to even myself
Courage I never ******* had it seems
Chaotically formed and tumbling from my spout
If speaking my mind makes me a *****
Then let me be the biggest ***** and hear me shout
Because you've had me on and stuck like an itch
I've had about enough so hear me out
Such friends you all are excluding me
From your games and fun and goss and parties
While I sit and watch and try to believe
That every nasty thing you say is not about me
I get it, you're right, I talk about things
That you can't relate to
As love to you is all about rings
I've gone through more than any of you
Would care to hear about from my ramblings
I've outgrown you all before you gave me a chance to prove
My worth is not worn out by nasty old things
Like you and her and the rest of your gang
So let your jaws drop at my sudden burst of honesty
Because you're heads are in your own *****
And you don't deserve to be eaten by me
You girls can get married and live your lives oblivious to the world around you. I've had too many "friends" like you, it's time you all ****** my **** and took a long walk off a tall building.

Be
Be Brave and Be Outspoken,

Be Beautiful and Be Wise,

Be Stubborn and Be Heroic,

Be Rebellious and Be Crazy,

Be Strong and Be Kind,

because at the end of the day,

when all is said and done,

you will have no regrets.
