7 Phases of the Moon
Basking in the pale light
Flight slight like a flash
of light

Was once running slow in a
Past Life, with the future me
presently in hindsight,
Purposely ditching the Limelight

Or was I just simply floating
Pass Life?

While losing sight of my Insight
Caught staring at these triple beam
That were too bright for my
Yet, was never dim in the Sunlight

Yes.. I remember this
The Sunshine was never too bright

Man ( SMH ) But in the end?

I can see I'm just a poor man with
Poor Sight

And I can see I got..
Many onlookers looking on from the
Porch Light

But then?
They only visit for a Fortnight
Then steal away after Midnight
For I only have..
30 days to change

That's 30 days and 30 nights

So why do you neglect
The Vision.. of a true

I can see right through the Pixels
of your Pictionary

With these..
Two Pupils no longer dilated
By the non-illuminating style
of your Critiques




Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted, in one moment
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?

Yo! His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's ***** on his sweater already: Mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking, how? Everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up, over—blaow!
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity, oh
There goes Rabbit, he choked, he's so mad but he won't
Give up that easy, no, he won't have it, he knows
His whole back's to these ropes, it don't matter, he's dope
He knows that but he's broke, he's so stagnant, he knows
When he goes back to this mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again yo, this whole rhapsody
Better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
One of the greatest songs. Now tell me isn't it pure poem.
Artist- Eminem( Not mine no one can be this good except Em. It is just to make you all see what real art is!❤️

the sun sleeps behind a blanket of clouds
i am surrounded by crowds
and yet loneliness preys on me
i pray no one observes or sees
i have buried myself in a cemetery
alone, i am content and happy
and yet my thoughts ramble restlessly
the time i feel alone stretches out endlessly
loneliness reminds me of a con man
his lies convince me alone i stand
he cheats me out of all that could have been
and informs me i deserve hell, there i will pay for my sins
no one tells you how isolating it is to exist
ironically, we feel alone in each other’s midsts
people avoid the odd one out
people avoid those who are silent, and those who shout
our species is cruel to its own kind
eyes lose their shine, we don’t realize we are confined
there are holes in all of us,
why is it we never discuss
the craters we create, and the craters others leave,
i can’t even begin to perceive how easily
we call each other ***, *****, pig
we never stop to empathize
we think only of the things we would jeopardize,
always on the fence about one another
yet we are all mothers, brothers, each other’s
perhaps we are satisfied with being alone
maybe ill be happier sitting on a throne, overthrown
someone told me victory is tastiest when achieved individually
but i think differently,
i believe we don’t need to suffer miserably, individually
i know loneliness takes all we can commit to it,
often times, it leaves us feeling like ****,
loneliness is love’s counterfeit
they promise to fill a hole, and yet the cavity remains omitted
but i chose to believe that the broken can mend
and i chose to believe the paths we walk are not dead ends.

Zippity do dah zippity a
My oh my what a ******' HOT *** day
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Sunshine heading my away!?!
HELL NO sunshine I've got something to say:

"Your shine is too bright,
Your rays are too hot,
You weren't invited to hang out,
& you take too long to leave!!

Staying cool is forever a fight,
Rain I sure do miss you an awful lot!
I hate being in a ******* drought!
Sweet drippin' in places you wouldn't believe!!"

Zippity do dah zippity a
My oh my what a wonderful day!!

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Thy skys are beautiful
And so are you
For throughout time
I shall call you mine
I will make you blush
With a single touch
I shall fight your fears
And wipe your tears
I will show you love
Give you all of the above
Never call you names
Never give you the blame
Treat you with respect
And will always protect

— The End —
