    The words I wish to say, Seem to have been polluted by cliché, With the closing of another day, As I recollect upon the way You simply left, and went away. Goodbye to the day, Goodbye to you, I find myself broken in two, One half with me, one half with you. So here comes the composition of...

    Bits and pieces Of rhymes Tease my mind As I chase About my Emotions, Simply trying To comprehend, What was said In the end, When you Changed from My one and only, To simply a friend....

    The antique time-piece On my wrist, Seems to say, Again and again, Day after day, That it (my time-piece) Is quite weary And forlorn From the wars It has seen. So with one last tick, And one last tock, It’s time For humanity To finally talk, And end the fighting. For as my time-pie...

    I guess I’m too good at seeing reality To be able to see what she sees When she looks inside her fairytales And sees pink princesses and perfect princes. She sees hope in the clouds As she dances in the rain, Unaware of a broken world’s pain. I see the ghetto, she just sees buildings....

    I see huddled masses, From Detroit to Brooklyn— And they all yearn to breath free, Yet, in their search for liberty, They can’t find any, So they choke on the words of tyranny. They’re the wretched refuse Of America’s gluttonous dream. They’re tempest-tossed, Yet, even on Americ...

    I had a little bit of heartbreak for breakfast, Along with a bagel and some orange juice. I put your hair band on around my wrist, For it seemed to be the most applicable use. I found myself at the lunch counter, Wondering what the hell I was going to do, Thinking back on memories of us, toget...

    Her eyes still shine, Though the photograph is battered. Her smile still catches me breathless, Even through the tearstains. The worn photograph falls, It flutters to the floor, Just as it has, Many times before, As I set my heart adrift, Upon a raft of heartbreak That endlessly bobbles ...

    Waldo the revolutionary Hides amongst the crowd. He tries to rally, tries to scream, But he can only yell so loud. Waldo le Rev Hides between the streets. He whispers words of warning To everyone he meets. Waldo, Waldo, Where is Waldo? Where is a revolutionary, When we truly need one?...

    Loneliness, loneliness, go away, Come again another day. Come on day when the sun is shining, For you and the rain, Bear far too much pain, For a soul that longs for company....

    Get the s*** out of me, Somehow fix me, Help me see, That somewhere, There may be grace to be seen. I’m sick of the sin, The God-awful sin, But it’s stuck deep within, Somewhere that is Awfully hard to reach. My soul’s on a bad trip, My heart’s beginning to trip, While upon s...

    Waterboard me with my tears, Smother me with my fears, Watch the children pass their beers That aren’t quite enough. They want to get high, Too high to see reality, Too far in the sky, To see the imperfections of humanity. But they can’t— So they want more, Which is what turned J...

    The world isn’t black and white, The world isn’t wrong and right. The world isn’t lose or win, The world isn’t grace or sin. The zebra isn’t black. The zebra isn’t white. There’re two stories to be told, And neither have it right. Gray, which composes A whole swath of pigmen...

    Mediocrity, mediocrity— I can ALMOST taste the irony— of your ALMOST-rhyme with debauchery. For debauchery, debauchery, is what takes you and makes you an illness. For mediocrity, mediocrity, you are the kid in the third row of that generic classroom in that generic public school who ...

    Blacken out my constellations, Shrink my hazy skies, Cover it up with your propaganda and lies. Map the whole entire world, Starve the poor—fatten the rich, Then define which is which. Keep lessening my world, Keep killing all my dreams, But one of these days, I’ll find something hi...

    Hugging ghosts, Kissing phantoms, Holding hands with memories, And giving everything for dreams, I trip on emotions, Tied to me by you, And I wonder, If I’ll be damned For never getting over you....

    They paint murals with bloodstains; Bloodstains brought to pass by bullets. As plaster erupts so does the panic. Innocent lay dying and bleeding Next to the killers, who have hellish grins. This isn’t a warzone, It simply has the same décor. The world’s burning from the heat of ammuni...

    Land of the free, home of the brave, The lens we look through’s just a little bit concave. Be you black or be you white, We pledge to sometimes treat you right, As long as you can read and write, And can stimulate our economy, By selling Americans mediocrity. Strolling down the trail of t...

    Words words words On the walls walls walls Accompany footsteps in the halls As I stare out the window, Down at the street, Filled with cars cars cars And feet feet feet All these people, Passing by, And I noticed not one Stole a glance at the sky, I could not tell you why The masses lo...

    The zebra’s black- The zebra’s white- We aren’t sure, But we’re still willing to fight. We could be wrong, But we know we’re right, So we debate through the day, And all through the night, Until we learn to hate each other, Because of the other’s opinion, When maybe, All alon...

    We’re leaning over a rusted railing High up on a ghetto apartment building landing. Swallowing up the din of the city, Wishing for the noises of nature, Yet all we can hear is the sounds of human nature, As sirens mingle with car alarms, Created by cars not worth stealing, And I can’t hel...

    It makes perfect sense to them, If maybe not to me, To medicate all the creative minds, Instead of letting them be. The creative minds would think too much, And of course they’d try to feel, In a world without emotion, That only cares for what is real....

    He plays sax on the corner, Because he could never get into the studio. He plays for nickels and dimes, Because he never got that lucky break. His Hail Mary’s never brought it, And his hard work earned him nothing, Because the world doesn’t give a damn About determination. But that poor ...

    This ain’t the end of the road kids, This is the end of all we know, Because we’re the generation That’s been killed by the over-active imagination Of those who walked this path before us. This world isn’t ours anymore, It’s the scraps of their imagination’s playground, And we ...

    He knew that he got only one shot. He took his turn, stepped up to open the door for Mr. Opportunity. Turns out Mr. Opportunity is a tricky devil. He doorbell ditched that poor kid’s door, And now that poor kid doesn’t have a chance anymore. But what can you do when you’re best’s only m...
