This is the introduction poem that I start my performances with when I step onto a stage. I share it here as I was practicing it this morning and had a WAVE of POSITIVE ENERGY overwhlem me … so I want to spread it to everyone!
I HAVE THE POWERRRRRRRRRRRRR….
of the heart…
But don’t you start thinking of Captain Planet
Farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr from it
Words slice emotions with surgical precision
Lyrical lightsabers twist in the air
Like fighting samurai
I am a Jedi
wielding the power of the Force…
But this isn’t the side of dark or light
My might comes from wielding emotions
Flinging lyrics like potions
Making you sigh as my words get u high….
Or wet as I get you to cum
To the conclusion
That my words were the intrusion
That made you weak kneed…
My friend, breathe…
But Passion’s power is not always sex
Sometimes, I get vexed
Releasing word streams so potent
They render evil impotent
Tongue lashing injustice
I fight evil when I see it in the nation
(And not the newspaper)
My words cater to every emotion
From grief to love to pure seduction
Every syllabIe designed for maximum reaction
Who am I?
I am emotion, I am fire!
I am devotion, I am desire…
I … AM … PASSION!
