I write to depart from the reality
Creating a path that’s used to escape
Clearing the dark that captivates me
Conceals it with a temporary drape
And I write to tell the unspoken truth
Explain things for what they actually are
Express myself without moving a tooth
You’d be surprised, the written word goes far
I don’t write to entertain with my lit.

Because if I did then I’d have to lie
Cause I don’t care what they think about it
I’d hav’t follow rules, I’d rather defy
When it comes down to it, no dough or wealth
Could stop me from writing for me, myself
