Start Anew (FF 86)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Start anew
Before you get shook, it might not be that hard to do
Do the negative looks fall in the margin of truth
Or do you let too many cooks attempt to barge in the room
The kitchen they tell you listen but their words don’t harbor proof
Serving nutritional deficient food then come to harvest you
Since I was an awkward youth I been digging through the rubbish
Trying to get to the root of it and finally find some substance
But there’s a lot of moving parts
Sometimes I feel I’m treading water in a pool of sharks
And I’m not bred from oligarchs so I don’t get the benefits of nepotism
But I hope to impart wisdom before I depart
Perusing searching for clues in the dark a lit spark
Paying my dues and I’m assuming it’s art
Since it don’t zoom up the charts can I illuminate hearts
And still accumulate racks and put some shoes on my cart I’m flossin
My vanity masking insecure anxieties
Secretly hoping honesty will increase notoriety
It feels good to tell my truth to the earth
Look at myself with love and recognize my true worth
