True Eyes


Tribute to a Great Poet Poem by True Eyes


An inner glow revealed from the
1st verse you ripped

How did you come up with such lyrics
So cool and intelligent
beyond words
You spoke as if you were running for President
and you cornered
liars and racists
with four walls of truth
Had a sweet side
how poetic you are; if it were my class
you are one of the best minds
that I've seen so far

Longevity you have achieved
and with your words you painted a picture
You are the panther,
the rose blooming with such amazing folds
Extending letters into words
words into phrases
phrases into paragraphs
paragraphs into truth,
truth into meaning

Meaning that provided clarity to corrupted
hearts
wiping them with a rag of emotion and
sincerity
leaving behind your gentle fingerprints on
the world
