As I promised, I will be sharing more poetry with you. I got so many emails asking about poetry after I posted a couple of poems months ago, that I just could not go any longer without posting some poetic flow. I will try to post my "flow" a little more consistently in the future. I thought it would help you understand and appreciate the poetry more if you knew what inspires some of it. This poem is called Mosaic.
A Mosaic is a piece of art made from broken pieces and it is put together in a unique unpredictable way. A Mosaic is colorful and random and always amazing to look at. So how did I come to write a poem called Mosaic? Some of you who have been with me from the beginning know that my life over the past year has been pretty rough. I have dealt with a lot and all of it was unexpected and painful. People that I never thought would hurt me did. Others I thought I could trust, betrayed me. I felt like my life was a bunch of random broken pieces, but what I have learned is that God can take some broken pieces and put it back together in a way that is more beautiful than it was in its original form. So, I wanted to share with you a poem about my life...
I’m gonna put these broken Pieces together Mosaic They keep throwing dirt on my name Character Assassination yeah Pour some more on It’ll just make me look better When I rise from the dirt Roses I studied for this test I was built to excel And I won’t quit Strength, Courage and Wisdom I invented the s*** Time ticks quickly From the minute to the hour Positive over negative That thing resting between my ears is my power I catch fiery darts without hesitation My life is a pop quiz God leads me through my initiation I don’t major in minor things Prepared to go Head-to-Head Like a soldier in Soweto But I won’t waste time On those Not fit to lick My stilettos My life imitates art Sometimes the challenges and enemies emerge faster My life is a mosaic Thriving in the hands of
