Poetic Beats Written Poetry by EHPHEX


Poetic Blessing This is not a solicitation of any kind just a transfer of thoughts from mind to mind. Mine to yours and as the poetic dialect pours past my tongue spiting a concoction of word play fresh as the day I wrote it, I hoped it be quoted some day in the hallways of the Smithsonian. Inspiring children young and old to take up their pen an design a sonnet of rhyme for reasons unknown. Pleasing to know one and everyone. Cleansing ears clogged with nonsensical rhetoric replacing it with stimulating intellect that'll tickle your subconscious with hypnotic undertones. I thank you for letting me in to your mental home if only for this minute visit. The time spent with you will be a vague memory in days to come, but for now, cherish the moment of this poetic blessing.


Dry Waters There's no morale to this story. Just a story about a boy. A black boy 16 year old star athlete, a high school jock with hoop dreams that was bound to take him off the block. Two more years, 1000 more points, 5200 hundred yards and 40 touchdowns. He was the talk around town, and his people called him Weeble. You know, weeble wobble but he don't fall down. On the court, or the field they called him waters. He would make a sport look so easy because he was like water. Pure and refreshing to watch. Almost every shot he put up was swish... like water. His speed was like a river running down a mountain side. And pride! He made everybody proud. Waters is going to the NBA is what they used to say; “nah with his talent NFL is where he'll play”. Just two more years. By the time he turn 18 he'll be twice as nice. Pure athletic awesomeness, quicker, slicker, a force to be reckoned with. Just two more years. He didn't know at the time but I was going to be his agent. Cutting deals for Nike endorsements, dreaming of managing my friend’s celebrity. But at 16, all we had were dreams. Hopes that Weeble's talent would get us all off the block. But The streets were attractive to a 16 year old black boy raised by his grandmother and the streets, free to explore and experiment in a playground of drugs and alcohol night life only 100 yards from his home. He was just as good running the streets as he ran 100 yards in football cleats. And the streets called him D-wyno. He always had a bottle or two of 40 ounce brew. Ole gold and crazy horse and only 18 years old. Damn where did the two more years go? Lost in a drunken, blunted memory and petty crimes that labeled him juvenile delinquency. And the high hopes and expectations were gone. See waters was quick and waters was slick; Weeble could do a crime and get away with it. Until just days after his high school graduation he got sacked with a parole violation and fined with the lost opportunity of a college education. And playing college ball was just a dissipated dream. And dreams and wishes don't come true... when the waters in the well have run dry.


Que stio ns Who am I ? Where am I ? How did I get here ? Where in this world am I going ? Lost in not knowing. Second guessing the first signs of a way out. Seeking truth and beauty while scientifically experimenting with the honesty of my spirituality, through unholy worship. Digging for gifts treasured by the measure of my ability to imagine a God or a purpose and answers to the questions. Who you are you ? Where are you ? How did you get here ? Where in this world are you going ? Together we can find our way. If true love is the path and we respect each others ignorance and believe our existence is about understanding that our consciousness is infinite. I guess there is a point to be made.

If you want something done right, do it yourself. If you trying to get wealth you got to do it yourself. Don't except help you have to do it yourself. Life is hard to live when you just trying to live. Give to get. A life you won't forget or won’t regret. The wrongs you've done, the harm you've done and the battles you've won. The blessings of life is sometimes bittersweet. And sometimes it's tough to get on your feet. But don’t give in and let agony defeat. Your victory is just a matter of time. And the greatest measure of who you are is how you master time in your own mind. So Stand up! Man up! Don't wait for no one else to get the job done. You got to do it yourself!

c i g a M d l C hi I wish we could destroy evil, malice and strife; With the magic of a child’s smile. I wish you could end hunger and stop the stomach thunder of the starving children who lack the energy to smile. Destroy the ugliness of hate and erase and all the isms that divide us and imprisons our own magical powers to shower the world with love, peace and joy. Like the magic of a child’s smile and the joy when they get a toy no matter boy nor girl if only their smile could light the world. And melt the cold hearts of men who sins cant win against the innocent grin of children. But now days it seems as if less children are smiling because their hearts are hardened and their hopes are fading

xx

and they don’t dream or believe in magic.


Blessed, Favored & Loved I am greatly blessed, Highly favored, And deeply loved, By me as if no one else mattered. My hopes and dreams shattered, this tattered fabric of a man that stands before you broken into pieces of faith. Bound by my aspirations of becoming more of a man than I was yesterday. Complete in existential being, seeking meaning and clarity, extending my love through charity. Giving my heart to no one, but sharing it with the world. Giving more then what's expected. More or less rejected by a world that says it's not up to me. Get a degree and I'll be ok. I be able to compete in the job market. Get a fair wage and live a good life. But by who's standards? Not mine, because my dreams are divine but harder to define and if it weren't for forces pulling me back, for lack of a better word this shit is whack, the devil trying to bring me down. So I surround my thoughts and emotions with positive devotions. Affirmations and good vibrations as preparation for what’s to come. Because only God knows how greatly blessed, deeply loved, and highly favored I am.


God is an Artist five black dots on a lady bugs back sprinkled, freckle, speckled Diamond sparkling prism of a suns rays peeking through the hole in coal ashes dusting the volcanic lands caped the mountainous Hawaiian flowering botanical gardens of rose see cheeks peek from a baby smiling in her sleep while softly whispering and cooing a melody sweeter than honey dew on the mornings lawn groomed meadows of amber waves of grains of sandy beaches kissing crystal blue seas tropical water falls slowly frozen flakes snowy lakes home to golden fish that wished their fins were wings on a dove soaring high above the green forests of rosewood oak and mahogany beauty of African Serengeti where the giraffe and antelope graze and shade from the rays dry the desert haze a mirage oasis of love and care painted on the universal canvas bejeweled in astonishment of fractal stars shine amongst the moon in June on the summers eve to the fall of the first autumn leaves artistic nature is painted with peace from God is the artist and I am a masterpiece.


FRESH AIR I wish love like air was everywhere. Taking deep breaths filling up my heart waiting to exhale. Love like air that never gets stale. Or pale in comparison to a cool breeze. The dancing leaves of the trees know the love I’m speaking of. Love like the wind beneath the wings of a dove. Who knows the air will keep him soaring. Love is adoring, Like deeper breaths and holding… Inhale…. And exhale… If love like air was everywhere there would be nowhere you couldn’t go to find it. No need to search, because the love your looking for is right under you nose. You can’t see the wind but you feel its touch. A brush against your skin or a hurricane with the strength to blow you away. Sweep you off your feet or leave you for dead. But please don’t take away my air, in despair I’ll gasp for more, like love I need more, but it’s everywhere so why am I gasping for fresh air.


POETIC I make beats and write poetry, because I have nothing else better to do. I'd probably listen to beats and read poetry, if I didn't have nothing else to do. I make beats and write poetry for my soul and for what little hold I have on reality and all that I’m told is a fallacy. American idolatry. See my life consists of 80 percent responsibility and 20 percent thinking bout how the fuck do I exist Creating my own reality, making moves, making beats and writing poetry. My dreams come true when I write, and the beat is the soundtrack to the science of my life, a nonfiction comic dramatic love story that's in it's 32'nd season, and under new contract, in fact every season I hope the show don't get canceled. Replaced with more suitable programming for example. Someone else’s false reality of a life. Someone else's dreams, someone else’s plight. So I hope I never stop making beats and writing poetry and making moves. Because my soul would have nothing else better to do. Then what would I do?

Hello Poetry Where did you come from? I didn’t know...

I mean we've meet before but I didn't think you liked me. I thought I wasn't creative enough for you. Not smart enough,

Definitely no artsy-fartsy literary intellectual type like most of your friends. I don't have the swagger of a rapper, flossing my spit with the credo of I'm the shit. What was it about me?

And don't say it was my way with words because I heard that line before, in fact more times than four from other poets. I didn't realize I had it in me (I didn't Know it) until the day I realized I had it in me. A point, a passion and voice... A choice to open my eyes and seek...

open my mouth and speak, or leak words on a page from thoughts that have been caged for a long time... Hello poetry.

Thank you for letting me in out of the cold, and nursing me back to health. Not long before I was lost and confused, battered and bruised, hoping to choose the right path, that hath not lead to my destruction, Hello poetry

This is my reconstruction. Thank you for letting me be myself. Being me, while finding myself. Your a good friend, and I our friendship will last forever, and the memories of times we will spend together. Hello poetry.

Name me your faithful student, capable and prudent and I'll be the crusader for your cause, to cause change, inspiration, education, enlightenment, peace, and understanding,

or a point of view that was never considered until you told me I could be one. Hello poetry.

together we will change the world. Together me and you will weather the storms of life and love.

life and love,

hate and death,

the words that mean nothing but what you want them to be...

Hello poetry.

Syncopated hypnotic rhythm venom spit the antidote I wrote Another verse to quote beats to provoke your movement organized in time With The pen and pad I organized this rhyme Thought’s that sought by the subconscious mind Electric impulse in sync with the sonic synth pulse, kick and snare drum hits the slick mixed and mastered I wrote till my pen broke, spoke my hope for more of that sweet melody would you could get caught up in a musical matrix so real you taste it laced with flows of poems and algorithmic tones.............................................................................................. ......................................................................................................... Some call it hip hop I call it hypnotic exotic electronic beats with a poetic backdrop audible tech rock and roll the soul My tracks burn the empire like Nero coded in one's and zeros EHPHEX THE HERO.............. ……………………………………………………………………… ……………………………...............................................................

Blind Vision Vision is what you see with you eyes closed. It's what you know when know one else knows. It's thoughts and ideas when creativity Ă‚ows. It slows everything down to acquire a greater focus. It's magic without the hocus pocus. Without vision the people perish. It conscious knowing and awareness. A blind man can paint a beautiful picture with vision. The biggest enemy of vision is division. For vision thrives on the precondition of disposition of a dream, that is real. Not yet born of this world. But it feels like you can touch it. Almost clutch it. Such it is vision is the unseen light from the newborn star 1 billion light-years away. The light is there but it cant be see by the naked eye. For 5 million generations. In distant constellations' in galaxies' far far away your vision is being born. Like the word of this poem that came to me on a new moon. Oh you'll know when your vision in full bloom. And all it consumes. As your minds eye shines with the light. the gift. the blessing of a blind vision.
