Poetry: Sista Lyric (@SistaLyric ) ‘Split Decision’

Split decition

Inspir­a­tion, ded­ic­a­tion, exclam­a­tion; a state­ment made with a recipe legendary.

Quite con­trary, Holy Mary, fill the wound the core paved way.

The for­bid­den was bit­ten, fangs jammed in the fruit­ful loins of oppos­i­tion.

Pos­i­tion a mis­sion; per­mis­sion? risk an incision, scarred for life.

Scary, fear for the moment, the minute, the hand waves across the face, racing.

Hearts on a track, con­ceived from the field, where the corn spares not its cob.

Hello rock-a-bye baby, its me, Mir­ror vis­ion, glisten, image of cre­ation.

Artist­ic tapestry, del­ic­acy, intim­acy; Bienv­en­ue, Hos­pit­al of Mont­pel­li­er.

Moth­erly bond, words unspeak­able, speech unreach­able for thoughts unthink­able.

Giv­en a leak of blood, a story told; incep­tion, con­cep­tion, cre­ation, gen­es­is.

Wished upon a euro star, galaxy in a good china,

Hip was French, spine of gold; hopped across the chan­nel, found you, me.

Poet­ic break­down:

The day I found hip-hop through my own cul­ture (which is French/Creole). How I felt the ego trans­ition of being myself in every­day life but the com­fort and “moth­erly bond” I had with breath­ing poetry & hip hop through that same “moth­erly bond”.

The begin­ning of the poem intro­duces the birth of it all “inspir­a­tion (what is it), ded­ic­a­tion (what it stands), exclam­a­tion (con­firms)”.

“Risk an incision, scared for life” — Was the split moment when I decided to fall into the brink of a poet­ic ego allow­ing myself to express.

“Hello rock-a-bye baby” — The day I had accep­ted it and accep­ted the fact I have giv­en birth to this tal­ent, style and ego.

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
