a quick 16

i’m not an ordinary man
i’m extra
   understand
even when i’m going IN
i keep an exit plan

eyes on all sides
they say they like my vision
learn lessons from the skies
on how to keep on giving

never gettin got
you can’t steal the rain
i’m not tom petty
but i’m free falling mayne

heartbreaker gimme glue
duct tape and a minute
life ain’t a competition
but they say i’m gonna win it

i say i’m dedicated
like the page after the title
ten thousand RPM’s
my heart’s never on idle

i’m gear-shifting, spirit-lifting
writing ish you wish you could
getting paid to talk to kids from
london to englewood

rockin stages with my sheroes
they say they like my style
words are so deep
you ain’t heard ’em in a while

some call me eight mile
but i ain’t eminem
more yehuda amichai and einstein
mixed with howard zinn

 

(from L to R) my mans Pages, CJ, and me at Brave New Voices in Philly this past weekend.
