My poetry is Lana Del Rey
Turning my skies to blue from grey.
My strength is Nicki Minaj because like me she’s
“Tryna forgive you for abandoning may.”
The Black Keys stand guard in my fight
Saying “let me be your everlasting light.”
An artist makes perfect the avoided real;
Nicki shouts out to “that cellulite.”
The poets can be read again and again
Listen to on repeat what stems from their pen
All I need to face any feat
Strength in whatever I face stuck in my head.
It’s no surprise hip hop arose
In a land of oppressed people transcending in prose
Eminem, Tupac, Biggie and Jay Z,
Speak on thorns to grow the rose.
She knows just what to say
He will always stay
A memorized conversation
Of all you can pray.
They say short lived is the motivation to do
Great strength comes from whatever gets you through
Like bathing we pattern to replenish wise words daily
Because poets’ words eternal ring true.
