Today I am pleased to bring you a poem by W.I.N. at Writing’s guest poet, K.A.O.T.I.K. THOUGHT. This poet is an entrepreneur as well as someone who upholds the principles of this blog — Writing to Inspire and Nurture. One of BUSS-Radio’s “BUSS Drivers”, he can be found running his artist management company (OBM Enterprises & Studios) and hosting his Internet radio show. Look for K.A.O.T.I.K. THOUGHT at the Collective Minds House Music Festival, Labor Day weekend in Druid Hill Park — Baltimore Maryland, as host of the Cultural Arts stage. For a video of K.A.O.T.I.K. THOUGHT performing another one of his spoken word pieces, The King Within, visit OBM Enterprise’s YouTube website.
A twister for your brain, of course all the words will sound the same.
At the end of this poem wont you please tell me my name?
You dont know me from Adam tho you judge me as if you do.
You seem as if my very existence is a bother to you.
I go about my day, I bother no one I stay in my lane.
For the world passes me by I am numb due to my pain.
Some mistakes were made and opportunities were missed.
I had no idea things would turn out quite like this.
I speak to myself mostly dwelling on my regrets.
And because you dont see me I cant get proper respect?
Nobody is perfect who the hell are you to judge?
You don’t know how I got here maybe I should be the one with the grudge
See thats what happens when ignnorance ir present, we must brake this chain
you’re so wrapped up in you, you cant even see another’s pain.
Is it your clothes, cars or money that makes you think you’re so great?
And I’m supposed to be nobody because I don’t have your material items and cant remember the last time I ate?
Your position in life is just that, where you are.
Your zip code and income tax don’t make me a derelict and you a star.
The energy you burn being negative could have a more positive use.
My possession’s are minimal and I’m not ignorant like you so whats your excuse?
You don’t see me because you judge based upon my surface
My experiences in life could have been grand, only Allah (swt) knows their purpose.
I may have knowledge that will help you grow.
I’m talking about your spirituality, centering yourself not your portfolio.
So judge not based upon the surface
For all of Allah’s (swt) creations have purpose.
Your purpose is not greater than mine nor is mine greater than yours
Drop the negative! you blocking your blessings look at all those open windows and doors.
See we can block our blessings by the way that we live
They come in many forms and sometimes the size is determined by what you give.
I am at the end of the twister that is for your brain
So wont you please tell me my name?
