Author: Poetic Glory

Poetry is a form of expression and a form of healing. It allows us to freely let our minds flow. Sometimes it makes sense, sometimes it doesn't. Either way it's a beautiful thing... Because it came from the heart, it came from the soul. You freed your thoughts and created art...

Main Component

Magnifying moments

You have talent in being a showman

My glorious moments, you’ve stolen

I wanted a role, but I was never chosen 

You never cared to see that my mind is golden

I was hoping you would notice

But you never provided your focus

You were never with me in the moment 

You always acted like my opponent

And every time I felt like crying, you were the main component 

Journey

So much pressure to do better

From people who think are above you

Always trying to give you a lecture

I have to follow their beliefs because they got it from their ancestors

It’s really a nice gesture, but I’ll get it together

I promise, I’m clever

It’s not what you say, it‘s the way you say it, and a lot of times they come out as an aggressor

Trying to make you feel lesser, because you’re not on the same speed, but we don’t have to get to the finish line together

I’m enjoying my journey, it’s a complete adventure

I appreciate your thoughts, but I am my own professor

I’m learning from others, I’m learning from myself and then I put it together

But don’t tell me I can get there as quick as you, because you’re already there, we all have different testers

I’m not sure what gave you the impression that I’m upset I’m not there

I’ll get there whenever, I know I don’t have forever, but trust me, the journey, to me, is the pleasure

I’m so dope, my mind wants to get sad, but nope

I cannot always sit around and mope

I have found better ways to cope

I was losing hope, but nope

I got up after every fall

I learned from my past but that’s not all

I no longer feel like feeling small

I broke down these freaking walls

From crawling, to walking to now flying

Every day I’m trying

They’re not always happy thoughts, sometimes I be crying 

Never so much though that I feel like dying, I’m lying 

But I keep praying and smiling

Supplying my mind with satisfaction and sometimes distractions

If I had to caption my life, I’ll tell you it’s under construction but I’m performing every transaction with passion

One-sided

I can still smell her fragrance on your shirt

Do you have to be under surveillance? 

To stop the flirt

To stop the dirt

Supreme light of promises

That you would treat me like a Goddess 

That’s a modest thought 

But I don’t think it’s an honest one

Your lies would be flawless if you would keep them 

I was unaware I was a temp

You sold me exotic dreams

While smoking hemp

Told me no one ever loved you

I promised I was here to love you

How can I give you my trust?

When I don’t even know if it’s lust

I left and now you’re lonely

They’re all giving you sex

And running back to their ex

They’re all giving you sex

And expecting their checks

You’re giving them specs

And lost my respect

It’s cool for a while

Until you’re alone in your room

When they pay you no mind

And you’re craving my love

That I once provided

You decided

And now we’re divided

And it doesn’t even matter

Because it was always one-sided

Endlessly

I keep sharing all this unique energy, but they’ve become greedy and they’re not sharing

I’m giving, they’re consuming it, I get nothing in return, it’s not longer a rotation

I’m giving you life, you’re killing me

And if that’s what you want, that’s what you need to chase elsewhere

I’m done with feeling like I always need to win a race, I was never racing with y’all in the first place

Some are trying to compete with each other

I’m trying to compete with myself

And it has been my biggest challenge

I know I have talent, but when I am not balanced, I am severely damaged

To surround myself with people and give them my trust after having my trust broken so many times 

After hearing so many lies, swallowing some many BS lines

Or do I stick to myself because I don’t want to be involved in the noise

It’s a tough choice, sometimes they are the enemy and other times I am a bigger enemy to myself, possibly the worst

I was always worried about them, but now I am putting myself first

Say what you want, my energy is never forced

Sometimes I build this whole fantasy, because it makes me feel closer to sanity

Their actions shouldn’t influence me

I am my worst enemy, I’m also my own damn remedy

Helplessly or heavenly

Someday I’ll get it, I’m fighting myself endlessly 

Mental Outbreak

And for a moment I thought you were giving me a break
But once again you’ve caused me a heartbreak
You are the reason for my heartaches
You’re the cause for my mental outbreaks
Running from you felt like I was running from an earthquake
I thought we were done with the nightmare and finally awake
But you were causing all these mental outbreaks
Your heart was fake, the aches were real
I never had a chance, I couldn’t beat the king snake

Uncontrollable

I’ll rise & I’ll shine

Vibe with me or vibe out

But proceed fearless, without doubts

If the fear consumes you, it will put you out

Walking into positivity, negativity is not allowed

If you feel it, don’t let it gain control

If it gains complete control, it will devour your soul

And no one will know because your story will be untold

Step out of the shadows, and watch the light unfold

Sometimes I consume it, but it’s never an overdose 

Sometimes alone, but never controlled
