LYRICAL BULLETS

Sorry but I can’t
Don’t make me choose…
Cause I won’t
Thanks to those lyrics I’m able to take away the bad feelings
Why carry such negativity like a cadaverous face ravaged and brittle by osteoporosis?
Without lyrics you’ll leave my hips broken
My brain will shrivel
Even my walk will look funny
I’ll be the only one pigeon-toed with an overflowing beltline
No mental or intellectual lines
artless I will be
A murderous death, my suicide
With my lyrics I’m the painter
the philosopher, a rhythmic thinker
You can’t carry my cross
Its all mine, it’s in me
The day those lyrics touched me
I was rattled and survived
I will say it again I won’t choose
Without it I will die
