Hello

I don't blog as much as I should/want to. I have plenty to say, share, bitch about or try to explain. I just am entirely too lazy to actually type it out. So gonna give a quick rundown. Spring is here but it's feeling like straight summer, let's get some Spring weather please! Drake's album was leaked and o course I've heard it, not too shabby I like it. Got a lot of questions/things I wanna do the rest of this year lets see how things work out. Poetry show the 18th of this month I'm determined to spit some of my best material. That's all for now.

Closer (Nightmares)



Closer (Nightmares)

Day dreamer living in a nightmare
Wake up cold sweats, must've been another night terror
Yell out, but there's no response
Screams muted by the night air
Looking in the mirror rapid growth of white hairs

See my situation's fucked up
Got me wondering how
How Ima make it through
Look up at the stars, but they hold no clues
Not what I envisioned in my dreams
Not the life I'd choose
Life's got my ego bruised
Regardless of what I do I always seem to lose

I'm getting lower
I feel it in my sleep
Not at all my dream world
I'm getting closer to my nightmares
Closer to my fears
Closer to drowning in my sorrows
I've cried too many tears

Hard to not let nightmares get the best of me
Especially when life's got the rest of me
Closer to the edge of insanity
Haunted by demons randomly
Stuck
Asking my self:
Can it be?

Nightmares become a mirror to reality
Reality reflecting my nightmares
Thoughts become cloudy
Unclear
Wondering how life got closer
Closer to my nightmares

I'm getting lower
I feel it in my sleep
Not at all my dream world
I'm getting closer to my nightmares
Closer to my fears
Closer to drowning in my sorrows
I've cried too many tears

Forever Yours




My latest poem. Enjoy:

Forever Yours

I'll never leave you
A shadow by you side
On your loneliest nights
I give you my shoulder to cry
As long as it helps you survive
Nothing is too great of a deed
If it helps you get by

Even when you can't see me
Baby I'm still right here
You may not able to feel my touch
But even your softest whisper I hear
Nothing you ask is ever too much
Alone. Is something you'll never be

Whether Good or bad
Joyous or sad
No one can ever take me from you
End of your night
Start of your day
I am your memory
Always one thought away

Physically
Spiritually
Eternally

Forever
Yours.

The End



Just Listen

Queens



Just got finished listening to Pharoahe Monch's song "Queens" reminded me how good his album "Internal Affairs" is, not was because it's still a dope album, favorite cut off of it has to be "The Light" So even though I'm not the biggest New York fan shouts to Queens, you can thank Pharoahe Monch.

Til Next Time. Peace Bitches.

Beautiful Struggle

Quoted from the hook of a Talib Kweli song called: The Beautiful Struggle

The revolution's here
No one can lead you off your path
You'll try to change the world
So please excuse me while I laugh
No one can change your ways
No one can lead you off your path
You'll try to change the world
So please excuse me while I laugh


Heard this song for the first time in a while, good song, verses and hook are very on point

Happiness



Happiness

Everyone deserves happiness
But not everyone will find it
It's pursuit will leave many blinded
Some will do anything to achieve it
Others will use substance to deceive it
Sometimes its not meant to be
Cold facts
Have to believe it
Happiness comes in many forms
But it best when it's real
Not a facade, a shadow of how you should feel
Time is a bandage that all sorrows it will heal
May not be immediate but soon you'll see that happiness is real...

Lose My Mind

Jeezy & Plies I fucks with this song:

It's been a long time

20 days between post, that's just uncalled for. I did have a post about 2 weeks ago I just never unleashed it, self-censorship at it's worst. But that's how it's gotta be sometimes. Anyway we're here today, time is now. Life as always is rough, there's good there's bad and then there's the middle of the road. Seems like there is a constant cycle of disappointment as of late. I try my best to not let these things get the best of me, it becomes very difficult at times but I refuse to let life get the best of me.

Quick Randoms:
Shyne needs to re-learn how to rap
Music was so much better in the late 90's early 2000's
Pasta Taco FTMFW
Back on my Gin twist

Until next time. Peace bitches.

Quick Thoughts

No time for beefing just trying to get at this money and get m life where I want it to be. Until you actually stop me from making money or cause physical harm to me or my fam there will never be a reason for me to have too much ill will towards any one person. With that being said Hope everyone is doing well and isn't letting the stupid things in life effect them negatively. Negative energy begets negative energy. Fuck Beefing Get Money.

To those of you who read my blog thank oyu. Leave a comment in a language that I can read from time to time. Til next time. Peace bitches.

2 Weeks

Damn I was supposed to be doing these more often. Well it surely isn't for lack of things on my mind or anything like that. Just haven't gotten around to sharing. So lets start from the most recent event of buying a car from the auction. I now own 1997 Chrysler Sebring runs good, but needs some work. Also there's a poetry show coming up next month and another book coming soon. This past week I've been training at a BMER (beamer) store for Boost Mobile. Lets see how this change effects my gig, hopefully for the best. Maybe I can get some more money. That's the most current stuff. Besides that there isn't really that much more. Life is life what's the use in bitching and complaining? Actually I think that's all for now. Kinda watchin a movie. Til Next Time. Peace Bitches.

Use your brain not your heart




We're all adults here right? Well could've fooled me. Sometimes peoples actions really annoy me. As an adult regardless of your position in someone's life you should always be able to tell yourself: 'I'm going to be the bigger person in this situation.' Or at least be able to attempt to speak about something in a intelligent manner. Percentage of people that are actually good at this are very few. People do stupid things involving their pride, emotions (love/hate), and perceptions. Take a step back think about a situation before reacting and you'll see in the end that it isn't worth wasting energy on acting in the manner you originally wanted to due to the fact it would have been wasted energy and nothing would have been solved. Whether the actions are violent or just spiteful, at the end of the day it's a lose-lose situation. And the only person who looks like a fool is you.

Ok enough on that just needed to get that off my chest. And why the pic of chess pieces, easy in chess if you react solely on the fact that you lost a pawn it will cost you the game.

Deluxe version of Philadelphia Demeanor is being worked on. And I still got more & better music than you.

Until next time. Peace Bitches.

Few & Far Between

These are starting to become few and far between. I'm not liking that much. Or at all actually. I've stopped posting links to music out of pure greed of not wanting to share. And with that being said has anyone heard Big Sean feat. Mr. Hudson - Way Out? It's a dope song, Try and find it I'm sure you can you tube it. Other things I'm fancying at the moment are my brand new Nexus One...say what you want Blackberry and iPhone junkies, what Google is doing with it's Android operating system for cell phones, tho not totally revolutionary is quite impressive and the feel of it surpasses any other experiences I've had with any other phone I've had, including Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and the iPhone. Enough about my pretty new toy.

I'm still waiting on my taxes to get done. One more week and I'm going to have to get my paperwork back from the person who's supposed to be helping me get them done. I hate waiting. I need this money. End. When you want something done, best to get it done yourself always holds true. Especially for me, being very particular with how things get done.

Projects on the horizon: Philadelphia Demeanor Deluxe Edition. (Cheaper, more poetry, more of what I really wanted my 1st poetry book to be.) Poetry Book # 2 still to be titled. And hopefully memorization of my poetry. I also wanna teach myself how to play the guitar and start getting in better shape...

Well I think Ima cut it here for now. Still have a lot to talk about but I'll save it for another post. And I leave you with this little gem:

Big Sean feat Mr Hudson - Way Out enjoy.

I was gonna blog tonight but listening to music has taken over. Sorry folks but I can't listen to the new/old hotness and concentrate on typing out my thoughts. Until next time. Peace Bitches.

It's Been A Long Time

Colin Munroe - Piano Lessons is a song I think you guys should listen to. It's a good song. Now to the nitty gritty. I haven't blogged in a few days and it isn't because I don't have time or anything to say just been kinda lazy. Valentines Day just passed people make a huge deal out of it me not so much. I did have a Poetry show that day getting back in that saddle again, have a lot of new ideas. Hopefully they translate well.

In other news I hope the snow in Philly stops the cold/snow really bother my knees, more than I let on, more than I show. Oh that and I done bust my ass twice, shit coulda been real bad especially considering I have no health insurance. [Hey government weren't you workin' on this sorta thing?]

Lent starts today, don't wanna hear peoples BS about I'm giving this up for lent just to go back to your bullshit after it's over. That's not what it's all about. But I will not, WILL NOT have a religious or political rant at this time. But anyone trying to seriously better themselves during not jut this time but continue in the future best of luck.

Next topic at hand is tattoos. I really wanna get some more ink. More specifically get my fore-arm finished off. Just gotta map everything out. My most recent tattoo is kinda on a weird angle so I gotta find something that fits yet doesn't interfere/take away from what's already there.

Well that's all for now I think. Mind is getting sidetracked so it's best I quit while I'm ahead. Until Next Time. Peace Bitches.

It has arrived



My hand. My book. It has finally arrived, and of course as I look through it I wish it was a little different but hey for the first time around it ain't all that bad. The text is a little smaller than I would have liked on certain pages. Comp screen & printed pages are a tad bit different I guess. And even though the book seems thin if I were to sell the poems individually framed, i'd do it for no less than $5 so I feel it's quite a good deal. But of course I would. Well that's all for now. Deuces.

Philadelphia Demeanor Pt. 2




So my book has shipped I have several copies coming to me directly. 5 to be exact 1 for my mom dukes, cause I know she'll cherish it with all her heart the rest are for sale. I have 1 sold already, which means I'll have 3 available for sale at the Poetry show on the 14 and I'm hoping I sell those 3 that day. I joked on twitter that if I sell 10 copies online I will get me a crazy tattoo, but I was half serious if I sell enough online then I'm def going into NY and hitting up Grin Stylez and getting some ink done. Check his work out here: Grin Stylez. I'm already thinking about a Part Two to this book, with all new material, which means I gotta get this pen to the pad. Typing out poems is one thing, but when you actually write them down there's something more organic to the work.

Currently Listening To: Mike Posner - One Foot Out The Door (mixtape)

I Wonder...

So listening to a little Kanye West been wanting to blog for a while about a few things so here goes nothing.

Today kinda sucked, it's never good to be woken up with a call about having to go to the ER with your mom cause her back is acting up again. I truly hate hospitals and seeing my mom in pain. But shouts to the staff of Einstein Medical Center much more professional and personable than the fuck boys at Frankford Hospital. Not gonna spend to much time on this but I really hope once my mom has this back surgery that everything will be better for her. She's been through a lot since getting hurt working back in 08. But it's about time to move on to the next.

Haiti has been all over the news everywhere and not to seem insensitive, but it's starting to become one of those enough already things. Certain types of people take things like this as an opportunity to preach to others, when 3 weeks ago they probably had no knowledge of Haiti or the type of condition their people have been living in. I hope that all this donated money goes into making Haiti BETTER than it was before. As for me I have donated what I can. But I have a family that needs to make sure rent and bills are paid. I have personal debts, wants needs etc. Haiti is still in my prayers and has been before the unfortunate incident. Haitian refugees used to get turned away on the beaches of Miami forced to go back to a country where there was little to no hope for a better life. So to my Haitian brethren I say Sac Passé in the end it all will be ok. It has to be.

On a personal note things are seemingly going better for me currently. My current bills are mostly caught up, not those Student Loans or Capital One bills tho [they are going to have to wait a while]. Hopefully this tax season gives me the ability to purchase another car. Having to depend on my brother to go places and getting to work sucks. I need my independence I need to be able to go where I want when I want listening to what I want. Not to mention I hate the way everyone who isn't named Irwin Roman [me] drives.

I want/need more tattoos gotta get this one arm finished up still debating on what to put on there. I think some clean text needs to be there. Then there's the other forearm and then the several tattoos that I really want done. 1 of which being the lyrics to 'Una Mirada' Which is the song at the end of Man on Fire. That will most likely go on the back of my arm.

It was my Dad's birthday on the 23rd which was Friday, and it's been about 12 years since he passed and the pain of not having him around is the same as the day it happened. You miss the little things the most. So if you have a good relationships with your parents I beg of you to just cherish it. I know it's hard to always appreciate everything they do, but you'll miss it one day.

The ramblings could go on forever but I find myself editing my own thoughts, which mean it's time to bring this blog to a close.

I have a lot to say, but I choose to stay silent. Not for my benefit, but for yours.

Love & Lost




Love & Lost

They say it's better to have loved and lost
Bullshit
There's no greater pain then when love is lost
And is it really worth it
When your heart's the cost
Now your cold inside
Hurt more than your ego
It fucked up your pride
Now love is free for all
But whether in or out it's the hardest fall
So they can say
It's better to have loved and lost
But fuck that
I say it would have been better
To have never loved at all

Accomplished



The shoes above have nothing to do with this post, but I'll most likely buy and wear them for the 2.14.10 Poetry show Ima be in.


Today I have a feeling of accomplishment I got a lot of things done from work til a little over an hour ago. When I got to work I took it upon myself to put up all the car and house chargers if not they woulda sat in the black trash bags for ever, I then made the Boost display nice and purty when Fed-Ex delivered them. I also had changed out the old posters with the new ones, and as far as sales we did pretty good as far as that's concerned. Now on the more personal side of things I got to target and bought "The Gold's Gym Circuit Training System" which is fancy talk for pull up bar and perfect push ups. Also copped up on some resistance bands (Gonna start P90X next wee), Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, and some other odds and ends. All capped off with updating my resumé and sending it off to my nigga Bert who is gonna try and get me into Children's Hospital. Praying for the best with that. 2010 no time for bullshit focused on making the best of what I have, which isn't much but my bills will be paid and I'll have some extra money for the first time in a long time...gotta save for a car with that cash. And these are my ramblings for today. God bless the people of Hispaniola (Haiti & the Dominican Republic) crazy, crazy earthquake hit them.

PS 09

Just a few things I did in 09 that I feel like sharing
