Renda Writer - Planting Seeds


All the flowers
Of all the tomorrows
Are in the seeds of today

Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Me
And that's all I ever want to be
All I wanna do is plant some seeds

I'm the transformer
Transforming inspiration
Into little pieces of poetry
Nobody even noticed me
Transforming
A brainstorm
Into the form of a piece
I was forced to release
My thoughts to a piece
Of paper

My modus operandus
Is totally outlandish

When it comes to the business of passion
My passion is business

Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Me
And that's all I ever want to be
All I wanna do is plant some seeds

Should I shake myself loose
From the habits that inhabit my head?
Should I do something else instead?
Should I have fought?
Should I have fled?
Should I lie in bed or rise from bed?
Or fly instead?
Or search inside my head
For something else that rhymes with head?

Inside of a silent mind
Where I cried and shed
Implied tears
From five years
Recognizing my biggest fear
The biggest thing I dread

No rhyming words left
Sounds absurd? - Yes

It's better to kiss a miss
Than to miss a kiss

My skeleton is a coat rack for my flesh
Why do people have pets?

Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Me
And that's all I ever want to be
All I wanna do is plant some seeds

Nerve damage
Makes a person out of touch
With their sense of touch

My insomniac soul sleeps in the soles of my feet
And makes me sleepwalk to a beat

Where you gonna go?
Go with the flow
Flow with the go
Just go wherever the wind blows

Everything is inspiration
EVERYTHING

I'm running with untied shoes
Through an open field
Inside of an open mind
Hoping to find
Closure
Losing my mind
But finding composure

It's that old day after day repetition
Like I sold my soul to this condition
But absolutely no way I can hold this in

And so I broke tradition
And coasted toward a vision
I envisioned years ago
My experience showed
I wrote while I rode
And I broke the whole mold

Good things started to unfold
Good thing I found some good people
That's why I founded Good Peoples

Nobody in the world thinks like me
I drink white tea
I wear white tees
I don't do thai che
But I drink chai tea
I'm just tryin' to get my piece of the P.I.E.
All before the day that I D.I.E.

I'll split a word open just to see what it's made of
I'm the wicked synonym the antonyms are afraid of

Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Anyone who wants to be
Who's a poet?
Me
And that's all I ever want to be
All I wanna do is plant some seeds

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
