Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers

rockin’ amazement

peace before anything.

my ink so hot
it burn though the journal,
walls tremblin’,
rockin’ amazement,
the air simmering.
I wanna tell you
how i feel right now:
the sun is sitting in the treetops
burnin’ the woods,
the focus gettin’ clear
and the light turn sharp–
fly gold, zulu arrangement,
radiating from heaven to pavement
to penetrate beyond
the muscle wall’s inner regions.

love power. slay the hate.


(This poem is composed entirely of song lyrics written by MC/actor Mos Def [Priority, Umi Says, Mathematics, Quiet Dog Bite Hard, New World Water, Auditorium, Do It Now].)
