I Can’t (Poem)

I Can’t-

I have been published since I was 16 

Fast forward two years I really have an act for this type of thing

I just love to let my words sing

But I have one problem

I write and I write and write

Despite all the haters in my life 

I write and write

No matter who tries to stop me I see through them like sprite

I spent a year writing a book that flopped

Even though I didn’t make any cash I couldn’t stop

No matter how much they prayed that I stop

I kept going

Now I have doubts in myself

Should I hang it all on the shelf

All the doubters want the wealth

They look at me crazy when I say I’m not pressed for the wealth

I’m pressed for the success

I’m obsess

Countless days barely sleeping

Just creeping

Creeping on my dreams working to get deeper

I try to ignore the haters like Justin Beiber

I can’t help that my spoken word gets deeper

I’m sorry I’m a bleeder

I just have to let my emotions hit the fan

Cause at times I go through it with my fam

I have been tricked before it feels like I’m walking right into a scam

I take steps with caution

So much going through my head feeling like I’m getting a concussion

I have to make an adjustment

I can go all day about the people who tried to rob me of my plans

But you get the picture I know you understand

I’m coming with the master plan

I just have to make it big

Sometimes I feel like I should listen to moms and just quit

I got to think back to all the tricks

They say tricks are for kids

I must be a kid cause I thinking I’m falling for the tricks

But I just can’t 

I can’t quit

I got to hit the tricks with the matrix

I can’t quit

No matter how deep the pit

I stick to my self 

I just can’t 

I think back to when I first started

Felt like an engine just starting

Just powerful as it makes its mark

I want to be at the top of the charts

I want to love my art

I want you to put all the music in your kart

I just can’t quit
