    dotsblacker than nightdots

    Outside swimming in an ocean of darkness
    A heart of gold
    Body falling apart since my spiritís been tarnished
    Soul being sold
    To those who paint them like artists
    Out of control
    Because those in the shadows always take it the farthest

    Different colors and shades
    Envelop the world in its own likeness remade
    Backward laws
    So the masters get devoured by slaves
    Racing to graves
    People are living to die
    They resist the need or urge to be saved
    Seriously considering lies
    Suicidal kids we degrade
    Look in our eyes
    Making all of our confidence fade
    Those who are wise
    Are the ones failing each grade
    Snakes devoured by flies
    So we bury our kinsmen with spades

    No light
    You canít tell your left from your right
    Lost the enthusiasm we had for the fight
    Eyes without sight
    Because our souls are blacker than night

      This one was good. Interesting. I like the very last stanza the best. Like it summarizes the rest of it without taking anything away from it. Nicely done hon. Later.

    Those lines were deep. Everywhere we go we see these things that you described in these lines. ITs like people our addicted to pain and lie about it.

      And your poetic side is awesome. You a really good rapper and lyric writer, but your one Hell of a poet, too. This flowed very well and your words were beautiful. Good job.

      Troy, you are showing more of your poetic side. Your message was bold and insightful. I would love to see you do some poetry in a set form, besides free verse. I think you have a certain style that can be seen in all your rap work. And, from what it seems, it can be seen in your poetry. That's good. I hope this win the contest, when you send this off. Good job.

      Call me obssesed but I am stalking you after all, so dont be suprised if I read all your work. I cant resist, I try to control myself and say lemme give space, but na...imma smuther your site with comments. I like this one alot. Im begining to notice your more poetic side. For instance, your raps are soundin' a little more like poems. Which is a good thing, you can work many ways with your talent. I hope you do good with sendin' it out again.
    catch ya later babe.

      WOW, another one that blew me away. I loved all of the deepness of the emotion. My favorite part was
    "snakes devoured by flies"
    Great write, and if I didn't know that this was a rap I would consider it probably one of the best poems on this site. And good luck with the riverbend review accepting this one. Although I don't why they wouldn't. Great job!

      I really like the descriptive words and lines in this piece. I really liked the last five lines, it really brought the message home in a strange but powerful way. Good job
    Regards, Kalinda
