The Sun

I said I would blog more, and I didn't want to make it as if I am like a liar. Here's a piece that I wrote on this laptop, whilst unable to find solemn sleep. Enjoy. By the way, just watch Brown Sugar for the zillionth time and can't wait for the Black Star Concert featuring Mos Def and Talib Kweli on September 6th at the House of Blues. I said I wouldn't go to concerts but Mos Def got me into REAL hip-hop, and Black Star only did 1 album 5 years ago!!! This will be a #classic #mustsee.

I’ve stayed up long enough to see the sun rise
Awakening to the falling of
Not anticipating its feat to the rest of the universe, running only to the other side
But awaiting its return to displaying its rays of resiliency
Showing its true colors as it impacts the horizon
Others would rather enjoy it fade to black, indulge the death, the end, of the day, of the sun
The rise is not only the moment when fully visible
But it will have to cease after it’s reached its highest point
So anything less than that, brings your head down
Subconsciously people have to look up to the sun as it is rising, and nod as quickly as possible to the latter
Not a day goes by without it
The sun is also subject to mortality, to the hands of God, the hands of time
Parallel is the view from the sunrise to sunset the same
I am the sun

"If skills sold, truth be told, I'd probably be lyrically Talib Kweli. Truthfully, I wanna rhyme like Common Sense." - Jay-Z in "Moment of Clarity"

"If lyrics sold, then truth be told, I'll probably be just as rich and famous as Jay-Z. Truthfully, I wanna rhyme like Common Sense." - Talib Kweli in "Ghetto Show"

That's how Hip-Hop pays homage. Shout out to Common too. #WordisBorn

Looking through some pictures, found these. =P
