"The Wrath of the Lyrical Dragon"

I'm the first of the last/ Whose lyrics surpass/ Those of the past/ And rip through the back/ As a matter of fact/ It's a must you react/ To a track that attacks/ And blows the mind like acidic tabs/ so close your eyes and enter a rhyme/ A scheme of time/ chopped out in lines/ you'll know you're right/ once you tear out the crimes/ and all the signs point to a lesson called life/ wake from your bed to a shiny new knife/ to cut out your sight/ in the depths of the night/ your vision goes white/ like tundras of ice/ where frozen hearts shatter the years/ millions of pages soak up the tears/ so blame it on heroin, liquor and coke/ blame it on all those hearts that you broke/ but whoever you blame/ just don't make it me/ cause I've always been there helping you be/ a Lyrical Beast/ with a killer instinct/ in the home of the brave and the land of the free/ I plant the seeds of Anarchy Inc./ Welcome the pain of evolution/ rise from the ashes my prodigal son/ let the pen bleed Armageddon/ the wrath of the Dragon born under the gun/ fire rains down to scorch the earth/ my birth was a curse/ but you ain't seen the worst/ eyes open wide, abdomen's burst/ spilling out fluids to stake the thirsts/ of all these lost souls searching for answers/ with a new breed of tumor killing the cancers/ never by chance/ always by fate/ I'm ready to die/ so open Hell's gate...

It's all in my head/ it has to be/ cause if not, then I'm dead/ and they've come for me/ these fallen angels calling/ those devils and demons crawling/ Through me...


  1. I can't begin to undersstand how you feel,
    I do enjoy your writing though, it puts one's life into perpective.

    Take care

  2. I guess this is a rap song. The rhyming, meter, and imagery is very good, but I hope it's not about you..

    Tossing It Out


    Yvonne, those who have not been in prison or similar circumstances cannot know exactly what I am going through but my feelings...My emotional states are no different than what anyone else goes through. This is what goes into my writings. While you may not be able to understand my feelings, in relation to my situation, somewhere in your life you have most likely experienced the same feelings.


    'Wrath' is about me, or at least a part of me. I think all of us go through a number of internal struggles, the devil on our shoulder so to speak. The Dragon is my 'devil', the voice of temptation. But even while it is my 'anti-conscience', the Dragon reminds me that his emotions are as much a part of me as the good.

    I don't believe I am a bad person but I do believe we all are tempted to do bad things sometimes and only by accepting who we are, the good and the bad, can we ever defeat our own Dragons.

    By the way, for those who have been reading the poetry and lyrics posted on Tuesdays, I will be releasing a completed collection entitled "2084: The Beasts of Orwellian Burden" beginning in October.
