Over the course of the last twelve years I devoted myself to honing my writing skills. I’ve been able to create my own style of writing. I was able to place a balance between evoking emotions and my love for music into my writing which has helped me discuss a lot of experiences I’ve had over the years.

Certain artists captivate me with the shock value they bring when it comes to the music they release. Songs like these cause an instant response for me to begin writing down things as I listen to it over and over. One song that did this was ‘Canceled’ by Bryson Tiller. Bryson Tiller is a multifaceted R&B artist that is very good at blending his singing/rap abilities to personally discuss relationships issues. Listening to this song recently had the same reaction I had when listening to it the first time and I was able to curate a new piece. Enjoy.

Canceled (inspired by the song of the same name)

Can you not…

Not come at me respectfully

Living life the best way I can

All the other shit is dead to me

Only believing actions

And not the bogus shit being said to me

Hearsay is invalid, so you need to come correct to me

Especially, if you want to stand next to me

Sitting on content 

But nothing yet complex to me

You can send me paragraphs

In the end, it’s just text to me

If you don’t stand for anything, 

how you think you can stand next to me

Perplexes me

Been through a lot, but it never stopped me

Mental been a punching bag

But they could never spar me

Better yet don’t spare me

Because it ain’t fair to me

Spending so much time worrying 

When they not paying a fare for me

Just need to be aware of me

If only I knew then, what I know now

See who would’ve rocked with me still

People’s Eyebrow

If only I knew then, what I know now

A lot of people would’ve been canceled by now
