"Use It !!!" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 7/8/2007

Use It For ... " Your Music " ...
Use It For ... " Your Verse " ...

Use It To EXPRESS What Makes You HURT ... !!!
Use It YES ... To Write Poems ...

But DON'T ABUSE It When You Use Your Pen ... !!!

Anyone Can Curse When Using Words ...
But Those Who Choose NOT To ABUSE ...
But USE Lyrics That Make You THINK ...
Tend NOT To Sink Like The WEAKEST Link ... !!!

Good Poets Use Their Words Like TOOLS ...
That Are Used To School ...
Those Crews Who Choose To Create FEUDS ...

Like IGNORANT Fools From ... SEPARATIST Groups ... !!!

So ...
Use It ... WISELY ...
Use It ... NIGHTLY ...

Use It WELL And It Might Sell ... ?!?
EXPAND Your Mind If You Write Rhymes ...

Then USE Your Vocab' To Spit Slick Raps ...
Just Like KWELI ... Mos' DEFINITELY ... !!!!!

If You Get Some CASH Buy THAT CD ... !!!!
And Then You'll SEE Just What I Mean ... !!!!

Historically .... Check Muhammad Ali ...
Because Poetically His USE of Speech ...
BY FAR OUTREACHED MOST Young Emcees ... !!!

He Was A ... " TRUE MASTER of Ceremonies " ....
Who CLEARLY Was SHARPER Than His ENEMIES .... !!!!!

NO Gimmicks Or Frills Just Poetic Skills ...
That He BACKED UP When He Used His Gloves ... !!!!!

He Packed A PUNCH Like Hip Hop DOES ...
When It Is Done By The RIGHT Someone Like ... KRS-One ... !!!

Check Out His Stuff His Rhyme Style Runs And CLEARLY STUNS ... !!!
Those Who CLAIM To ... RUN The Game ... !!!
NO Naming Names Cos' They're ALL The SAME ... !!!

Poetic CLONES Who USE Weak Flows ... !!!

.... " DON'T Be Like THOSE " .... !!!!!

Make Your Words GLOW So That They KNOW ...
That You'll BOLDLY Go Where THEY WON'T GO ... !!!

DON'T Be AFRAID When You Sit and Write ...
To Write What Resides INSIDE Your Mind ...
Let Your Brain DISPLAY Wordplay That's STRAIGHT ...

AVOID What's ................................... FAKE .............. !!!!!!!
And Make It ... GREAT ... !!!!!!

If You STICK To The TRUTH It's Bound To MOVE ...
People Who LISTEN To What You've WRITTEN ... !!!

What's REAL To YOU IS REAL To ... YOU ... !!!!!

NOBODY Should Make You Write THEIR WAY ... !!!

..... INCLUDING ME ..... !!!

This Simple Piece Just Explains My Views ... !!!
On Poetic Tools I've Come To Use ... POETICALLY ...

The Choice Is YOURS ... Your Pen's Your SWORD ... !!!
Or Nowadays Of Course It's Your Keyboard ... !!!

WHATEVER The Source ... ?
Write What You FEEL And What's REVEALED ...
May HELP You SEE What's In YOUR CORE ...

NOT Seeds Or PIPS But Written Scripts ...
That'll SHOW You How You LIVE and THINK ... !!!

See Poetry Can Soothe And Ease Your Mood ...
And Like GOOD FOOD Can Do You GOOD ... !!!!!

Consistent Use of GOOD Diction Whether Spoken Or Written ...
Is A Form of NUTRITION That HELPS BROADEN Your Vision ... !!!

SEE What I Mean ...
It Can Sound So SWEET When It Is COMPLETE ... !!!
Poetry That's NEAT Like A WELL Produced Beat ... !!!

But Poetry You Write DOESN'T Have To Rhyme ... !!!
It Can Simply Paint A BEAUTIFUL Scene ...
Like A Bird Flying HIGH Over Calm Blue Seas ... !!!

Write WHAT YOU LIKE In ... YOUR OWN STYLE ... !!!
And Let It FLY ... Like A Bird In The SKY ............................................. !!!!!

Write For YOURSELF And You'll Write WELL ... !!!
Everybody CAN'T Like What's IN Your Mind ... !!!
USE It To DROWN When You Feel Down ... !!!
And USE It Like You USE A ... " SMILE " ...
To BRIGHTEN Yours And OTHER Lives ... !!!

NOT TO Start WARS WITHOUT A Cause ... !!!
USE It For SURE To PROMOTE Much MORE ... !!!!!

Poetry IS A Heavenly Gift That CAN UPLIFT ... !!!
And Give You Things BEYOND What Blings' ... !!!

TRUST Me On THIS ...
I Suggest You ... GET TO IT ... !!!

And Start To ....

............... " USE IT !!! " ...............

Simply Excellent! You've got talent and need to be in the slam scene- if not already.😊
