shine bright

11 Nov

Shine brighter than the sun, louder than a gun
soak up life like a sponge,
he spoke jargon that was bottled by the bar in mason jars
joke and laugh but never forget where it’s stashed
wut >_< is enough before you have to ask
Do you always wear a mask?
“No, only before and after class”
Rascal minds had radically practical goals
pragmatically defined, stole the designs to practically a gold mine
tasked with monitoring the holdings
“just sign on the dotted line”
Everyday he freestyles his mind in cipher rings

and when there is time
some could be written, grow wings
some things cannot be forgotten
He played guitar strings with caution
fought hard to spar in the yard
with dedication comes a passion that leaves scars
Real education makes you stand on guard
No report cards or day dreaming with stars
Just knowledge and skills and techniques and will

Shine bright across the fields
learning how to engineer greater yield
the day and year that fate was sealed
wielding such powerful options so constant
often leaves a noxious conscience from not stopping
the assumption that this is a problem
is an obnoxious concoction that is optional

Tonight writing new instrumentals
that shine brighter than potential
more melody than rhythm but still sequential
building a palace from the zero level
out of rhymes made of wood and metal
Shine bright as the times when you wouldn’t settle

Having no breath

3 Nov

Getting ready for the evening
choking and wheezing
unable to go to bed
unable to slip into subconscious
due to this constricting grip he can’t shed

Thoughts of suffocation
no doctor and no medication
unlike last time, drove to the hospital
almost passed out on his bicycle
Thank God for Albuterol
Vital to asthmatic individuals

It’s time to change our old rituals
In Persian it is ‘Nafas’
Turkish it is ‘Nefes’
In Sufism it is ‘Freedom’
the self soul breathed into a body

Looking at life’s entirety half blind
always made different things shine
but w/out oxygen the brain can’t maintain or assign
longevity has its place
but I’ve been to the mountain top and climbed
just to find my breath escaped

Another way

2 Nov

The day I found another way
was with my fam-i-lay

Saw God on their face
you don’t need to look far to find a heavenly place
even among hate and disgrace

Making new attitudes to taste
Who knew the blue sky
was the brother to the sea
Never die, resurrect every morning
Hard work takes discipline and learning

Ready more than ever,
send off the letters
For our clients
Forget the competitors
Measuring for compliance
it’s harder being the editor and I’m pretty sure less of a pleasure, write through lines

change structure
the designs need to be layered in precise order
Of course he was merely a porter

the day I found another way
started drinking more water
and listening to the words of my father
teaching my sisters and brothers

Clean clothes creased with a crisp
Sharper wit that’s fit to commit
Meaning to make it with our tool kits
the really legit, even got the permit
to transmit real hip hop in lyrics
spit the nitty gritty little bits
The itty bitty pieces are part of a larger entity
It’s entirety is constantly changing identity

My theory is grow with the times responsibly
and with positivity
you matter to a lot of people in your life
but we don’t notice and speak of it regularly
reach out to another one in another way
to focus reality

How everything starts

28 Oct

Shine brighter than the sun
Louder than a gun
Soaking up life like a sponge
Make 1 and break it in half
lunge for the pieces that make you laugh
Sit back and ask how are the parts fit to last

The early bird gets the worm
Even the sun couldn’t catch him with its burn
every morning he starts to learn
prefers the time when everyone is sleeping
The trick is to constantly be leaving & arriving
a state of statelessness in an abyss you can’t miss

he stopped finding things to wish for
of course it comes from an inner core
for study he always did 4 more to be ready
for practice catch him in the lobby for breakfast
my rhymes are real life experience
designed by a mind who likes to steal happiness
if serious no one’s going to give it to you
if curious take it when you please
it’s something that can fit in the sleeve of your grief

reprieve the standard preconceived naive impression
that God’s decree fell somewhere around Tel Aviv and Jerusalem
Tell em’ Bij,
I give unchallenged minds a different way to perceive and believe
lyrical accession and cessation of bad presentation
the orchestration will take much concentration
but it’s the only way we will achieve self actualization

Fresh off the train

28 Oct

It has been long since the factory has been publishing
Feels good being in a neighborhood where most is understood
writing is like a bicycle I just found
improvising mic tricks with no delivery to his sound
Mono tone but at least he gets the message across
like cellular phones and tin cans of dinner sauce
My family is my biggest boss

Toss out the garbage there is much to reap of our harvest
Leaving behind old targets that were too unrefined
Bigger pictures require more paint
acquaint to using too much restraint on the mind
“He ain’t the preacher patron saint”
but neither was jesus of nazareth
more of a zealot radical activist

transform through portals of black magic
Poetic freestyle practice
on most days

reaching for performance of something much more gorgeous
it takes planning, procedure and process
lest we forget the diligence and revert to poor habits
Its a regular kind of act, that expands and contracts
back to back laps of spitting raps on that boom bap
can you leave you forgetting to wrap it in a netting sack

Zoom into 10 years and see how you think the future will appear
will we have enough time to sit right here and drink a beer
Fresh off the train, looking for a nice place to rest the brain
I suppose some thangs are only visible with certain frames
Having too much change doesn’t allow you to appreciate things when they don’t stay the same
vice versa versus a middle ground
being able to eyeball a pound
of that raw truth
recorded on a track in a vocal booth
with a sweet tooth for the clever leveraging proof
that we create every second of experience

Our bodies and minds naturally are inclined to filter out that which needs no shine
the darkness of subconscious cannot be restrained or confined

the life in times

For the one I love

26 Oct

Thank you for your kind words and genuineness
For showing me the things I’ve missed
For nice walks and a kiss
You make me want to paint the cliffs of Egypt
with subtitles of hieroglyphics
your love of animals and life is terrific
lets go out to the park for a picnic
where the outdoors is scenic
just a little bit of lyrics


4 Oct

Inspired by Reality
faster, more resilient and ready to tinker
everything just seems that much cleaner
sharper focus and demeanor
was able to become a mind reader, deceiver of few
learning how to pick up on clues, never lose
even when you do it’s a lesson for the future you

Dude stopped speaking in slang
found more ways to relax than one thang
bound to be back if frames aren’t changed
New eyes, prescription of the latest edition
Staying fresher than original encounters
the trick is to always listen, especially to intuition
around these corners its your choice to voice parameters
partial participation gets partial results
Ran full strength to empty tanks without needing the thanks
he opened the vault to opportunity and found ranks
value judgement to actions,
behavior modification conditioning practice

Sobriety gives clarity its merit and dignity
Fact is you do deliver better consistently through Sobriety
Life is more than one activity or Faculty
draining energy when it could be produced naturally
re-adapting to the habitat in our surroundings
Sobriety brings less anxiety, money worries and thieving
Cheating, exploiting and regretting
Sobriety knows it’s stand and plans
to not repeat the failures of past beatings
meeting the same road in a new view
can move mountains with the edge of a hand
to Demand what you go through
to be less painful than prior
takes a sobering courage that you must desire
