NO EVIL

In darkness find refuge.
Without light, no harsh
visuals before you
shall be brought.

 

In silence find fortitude.
Within meditation, the
negativity inside o’you
will always be fought.

 

In withdrawal find comfort.
Without words, no insults
t’monopolize y’tongue
shall be sought.

 

Trust me.

 

Everythin’ I’ma say is true.
This is My point of view.
This is the isht that I wish
someone would’ve dished
m’way so I fricken knew.

 

Cause;

 

One small oversight
on their behalf —
‘n jus’ like that
I’m in a foul mood.

 

My thoughts are skewed.
My anger’s brewed.
It kick start’s a fued.
My vocabulary’s queue’d.
‘n here I am.. Thinkin’ —
Ahhh, yeah
This paper’s f’kn screwed!

 

When it comes t’growin’ up
at an extremely early age —

 

I’M THAT DUDE.

 

As that dude;
I’ma spill factual ink,
like I’m writin’ an oath.

 

The difference between
BEING HUNGRY
and
GOING HUNGRY..

 

I’ve been fortunate
t’know them both.

 

I’ve been fortunate
t’show some growth.

 

I’ve been fortunate
enough t’be able t’provide.

 

I’ve been fortunate
enough t’help conflicts reside.

 

I’ve been fortunate
enough t’help learn that
there is a difference
between bein’ proud,
‘n havin’ a sense o’pride.

 

You see,

 

In darkness I’ve found refuge.
Without light, no harsh
visuals before me
shall be brought.

 

In silence I’ve found fortitude.
In meditation, negativity within me
will always be fought.

 

In withdrawal I’ve found comfort.
Without words, no insults
t’monopolize m’tongue
shall be sought.

 

SEE NONE
HEAR NONE
SPEAK NONE

  1. There it is again… that sharpening of a new and visually enthralling spectacle of a structure. Brilliance, taking me on to these inner thoughts, and the meditation/negativity repetition was done to expertly well. This is what I meant when stating just how much you’re making this poem game your own, Rome. This gem is fire!

    • Means everything, Brother!

      I don’t write about the typical topics, that other’s touch upon. Not because I don’t want to, but because I don’t want it to sound forced.

      I’m just not good at it. What I do know, is what I’ve been through. Which is why my poetry reads relatable (I believe).

      Your critiques are always so encouraging. It makes it easy to share delicate subject matter.

      Thank you, for that!

      • Always, bro!

      • ??

  2. Again and again I try to say I found a favorite by you but I just can’t do it because I’ll sound like a broken record, oh well: this, this, this is a favorite of mine. lol. Well done!

    • If every new poem becomes a favorite of yours, then I’m on the right path each time my pen hits the paper. lol

      Thank you so much, my friend!
