rapper by default.

rapper by default.

i’m a rapper by default,
but a poet in my heart.
i don’t do this for hip hop.
i do this ‘cause it’s art.

i do this to maintain,
keep myself from growing insane
like a rose out of concrete.
i rhyme over beats,
and walk the earth
on my own two feet

b e c a u s e   i   c a n n o t   d r i v e.

it’s my attempt to remain alive,
or perhaps i’m just afraid,
scared, and i don’t trust people.
it’s getting dark inside,
and there are shadows on the wall
that call my name(s),
but aren’t my friends.
“where they begin is where i end”,
but it’s not that simple
with so many people.
at some point, our boundaries
all begin to blend,
and all our scars and secrets
become displayed for all to see.

i’m a rapper by default,
but a poet in my heart.
i don’t do this for hip hop.
i do this ‘cause it’s art.
