Autobiography

© Breeze Vincinz

My mother will always have a nickel

as long as I have a dime

My life will always have a purpose

as long as I have a rhyme

I will always remember who I am

as long as my hair is nappy

I have so many tears to cry

because I am so happy


and I hear the angels sounding

like pen against paper bounding

to make it work again


There is air in these words and

it makes them fly like birds and

I want to fly like that again


My heart will always have hope

as long as it’s beating

I’ll always say some shit about love

if that’s what I’m feeling


Like my first live was a dude and when

we made love it sounded like the ocean

My last love was a dude and he felt so good

I spread him al lover like lotion


and it’s the moon that always gets me

one of the few women who get me hard as a tree

and I love being that hard again and again


There is color in this monochrome existence like

there are sounds in this monotone instance that

whatever the color, I want to love again


My mother will always have a dime

as long as I have a quarter

I will never go thirsty

As long as I know how to get water

I will always have a clue as to where I’m going

because I know where I’ve been

I will always know what it means to be righteous

because I know what it means to sin


and I hear the angels sounding

like pen against paper bounding

to make it work again


There is air in these words and

it makes them fly like birds and

I want to fly like that again


and it’s the moon that always gets me

one of the few women who get me hard as a tree

and I love being that hard again and again


There is color in this monochrome existence like

there are sounds in this monotone instance that

whatever the color, I want to love again


Our mothers, who art in heaven

Always watching over us I reckon

And when it’s over, I want to see them again


And when I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

And when it’s over, I want to come back again
