Poetry-Hip Hop Saved My Life - Poem by GodBody O.G

Some say my words are as deep as can be
back in the day there was no peep out of me
never was the type to try and stay focused
but I could tell a lie and hang with the jokers
If you knew me you didn't love me, at least not for long
then something grew inside me, the beast became strong
I put pen to paper and out came something poetic
relished in hip hop,2 women named it floetic
instead of holding onto a blunt in my mouth
I hold now a pen and cast out my doubt
Finding this easier than roaming the streets everyday
I've become a man hoaning my talents in everyway
encouraged to do this by those around me and in my life
engulfed in darkness until poetry and hip hop shed some light
would have done this sooner but the drugs delayed me
thanking Got that (poetry) (hip hop) saved me
