And I Spit
Standing up in front and center with the mic in your face.
Bow your head and say a little rhyme.
Get up to the speaker and start to breathe.
One breath is all you need.
And then you spit.
“This may be the hardest thing you ever do
but you do it, right?
This might just be your one last shot
but you take it, right?
And while you fouls all look at me wondering
what the hell goes on in that head of hers?
I tick the mic like clockwork
And I rock the stage like Jagger
I punch the words from my verse
onto the amps which amplify the rants that go on in my mind
and seeing is believing when you see my mouth move to the rhythm of my beat
the beat that I treat is the the heart in my chest
and the words on the page are verses with age
cause these rhymes didn’t just appear
they were brought here by the lights in the dark
and the darkness of the lights”
And then I breathe
And I’m done
