All Falls Down

Posted March 6, 2013 By: OMi

Had my headphones on the other night listening to Common and some other greats and I wrote this..

I'm no Giselle, I'm no Salma
I'm no Kim, I'm no Nicki
Skinny as fuck and I ain't so pretty
See how this shit is tricky
Ya gotta look like this
And ya gotta look like that
My mind and heart are being tested
But still tryna stay cool, calm and collected
Kill 'em with kindness
Cuz I really am nice, yes
Let the sweetest muthafucka go
With the sweetest touch and the sweetest kisses
Doubt he'll miss this
Now go on and wipe that look off ya face
This ain't no rap, not a rapper
Nope no trace
Put the pen to the paper
Just so happens that I'm rhyming
Thoughts spilling out from inside me
Judge all you want
what is she doing?
how embarrassing!
she really isn't pretty.
This is not to please you
Or appease you
Looking past all the yous
To find me

    You're welcome! I've always felt nervous about putting out my work. But I've learned to expect criticism and counter-arguments, it's all apart of my learning process. Plus it comes with the territory. And you are so right. There is "nothing to but fear itself."

    Thank you! Im glad you like it. It's so scary putting your work out there for others to critique but I appreciate the love. Nothing to fear but fear itself right?
