Wake Up

Dont worry… I’m here to wake you up

We all seem to complain and find fault
with every little effect
that doesn’t meet our personal
or individual agenda
we end up not appreciating the moments
of breathing fresh air
or beholding fresh spring blooms
privy to our perfect atmosphere
the wasted days leave stains on privileged life spans
filled with empty reasons
not to be happy
or joyful
pointing out
everything that could would should be wrong
singing the same sad song
hoping to find someone to
sing along
because misery
loves company
clinging to the common thoughts that confirm the insanity
of mental fuckery
I am so confused by the troubled youth
and the medias portrayal of black and brown dudes
who unknowingly misuse
the opportunity avenues
and the on ramps to
helpful information
only to enroll in the class of
to parole or probation
pass the discrimination rate
stuck in the gray
lines of the law
like the hossier state
freedom to serve based
on religious faith
this should be old news but
still up for debate
black white brown asian or gay
we all have 24 hours of the day
so why can’t we all behave the same
ego and self gratification gets in the way
and believe me when I say
the common sense class majority of people didn’t take
the attention to detail was not paid
so the unconscious incompetent stage
is where they stay
You know:
not Knowing that you don’t know
naive and un-aware of the obvious
to the common but unpracticed
that make life worth while
and adventurous

Someone must shake them up
throw water on them to try wake them up

they must be sleep
to live the American dream
they must really think
it is what really seems
to realize the peace
you must attain a degree
from lies that are told
through the authors of history
I am the voice that cry’s in the silent nights of misery
I want my piece of the pie
instead of this bottle of Hennessy
i want the truth not the lies
of what really happen to Kennedy
i want the truth not a lie
of today’s puppet-master’s true identity
but the media repeatedly
throws up a smoke screen
Themes filled with celebrity pregnancies
and local field nigga causalities
stories of any means
to conventional crimes and themes
common times into nightly
must see TV
how to get away with murder becomes the scandal between
the blacks and the whites true gray anatomy
still with nothing on
the masses flick frantically
through hundreds of three letter acronyms trying to find reality
only to be stuck in the insanity
of humanity
entertained by human tragedy
and natural calamity
and we all must play a role this gnarly
dark comedy
hard to to see
while perpetually
staring at your eye lids
and a lullaby sense

of today’s daily gifts

called seconds and minutes
not fully understood by men and women
they spend them
like raffle tickets
and gift certificates
not to understand their true value you will never reap the benefits
like they say around the way

you don’t know wat da biznness is

you get what you get
cant complain about what you finish with
because results always reflect the hours you decided to fit in
cause and effect
ain’t nothing change but the rent
the more that you sit
the less you get
the more that you risk
the more you get rich
it seems to me this would be common sense
but as we already know common sense isn’t always common practice
it would be cataclysmic
not to implement the obvious
but obviously
the American dreamer is still asleep


My Opinions Part: Zero

Some of these words come from within
but some these words fall from a infinite amount space and matter
Surpassing all telecommunication patterns
Of chatter that advertises to the masses
While little Judy is up in classes

Mr. Mike Murdock is counting up his assets

The American economy clasps
Meltdown in the housing bracket
Bailouts to the Bastards that drafted it
Now mom is worry about her grandkids
Hoping change will come with a black president
In my opinion the election is irrelevant
If most of this stems from the lack of financial intelligence

To better understand myself
I look at the cards I was dealt
Picturing a swift victory
But realizing three cards I did not need
Particularly these
The ones I want
I guess that the way life is huh?
Making sacrifices to gain greater advantage
Planting seeds in the garden to grow annual cabbage
To live far beyond just managing
Or to just get by
Looking at my life in a different light for my own good
To be a living example for my old hood
You have to walk it to talk it
You have to been through it to prove it
But first things first I must just do it
I have thought about this more times than I should
But I seems to all good
Because before building a city you must first tear down the woods

On My Droid (Pt. 2)

Fist clinched
thumbs tap dance
motorola screens
to nobodies
i guess i’m just…
Talking to me.
Hope comes from constant belief.
Won stroke of genius
On digital sheets
positions me
above mediocrity
writing a Hip Hop odyssey
of pure unadulterated…
Exploring the leaps of those be
fore me
studying the verbal
displayed on early
after late night open mics sessions
street light Fluorescence
provide illumination
For our free will to express
Our expression
of peace and frustration
our goals and our transgressions
and every thing is at my fingertips
one thought away from entering in
info into intangible infrastructures
invented invertly inside artificial intelligence
only to hold the details of my intellect
and occasionally surf the internet
and having brief conversations with relatives

My Dirty Laundry

If you could read my mind
you would find
A manuscript that was
one of a kind
With a DAMUnique design
I’m not one of those guys
Looking for a lady with nice thighs and giant big behind
Even though that would be a plus!!!!
Filling me with lust
Wanting to put my stuff
into her stuff
Letting my imagination run muck
But let me be blunt
That’s not what I came here to talk about_____

I got a couple things I need to get off my chest
Some things make me laugh
some things make mad
Some things just cause me to stress
How can I say it the best
My life has been a big crummy mess
Addicted to controlled substances
I never like taking bath so you can smell how musty I gets
Feening for pornographic practicing sexual absentinance
while I was married 4 and half years
So you can see how much that made sense
I had three wishes but none on those bitches came true
My current religion is mixed with witch doctoring and voo-doo
Just last week I summoned a tornado and got a typhoon
This week I wanted a black cat but ended up with a raccoon

As you can see my mind hasn’t been working correctly
My body’s saying let’s sleep
we’ll wake up early next week
My flesh is weak so I give in daily
Measuring my success with last year’s best
A victim of self inflicted stress
I choice to be poor this is not America’s mess
Under the burden of not trying to be a conformant
Conforming to the ways
useless time is being spent
My inner world is split
One side won’t repent
Loving the scent of Newport cigarettes
After getting off some wet clitoris

My spiritual life is dormant
So my zeal for sin is enormous
Sometimes when I walk into church
I feel like a tourist
Looking at the legs of Deloris
Smelling like fresh orchids
from the local florist
Asking myself how long will I endure this?
The Word of God
is not the only thing I’m ignoring
Bill collectors can’t wake me up from my snoring
Repo man comes
and takes it in the morning
Because I couldn’t afford it
Because I rather spend my time up in orbit
Taking mid-day flights
racking up frequent lie around miles

I should have known by now
I am a product of strong women
But got to use to taking instead of giving
So I don’t look at responsibility as a privilege
I look at it as kid looks at spinach
“I’ll eating but I don’t have to taste it” Yuk!!
Another case of bad luck
But stuck
knowing the truth
That responsibility builds character
like the awareness of terrorist in 2002
Trying so hard to be different
Rules of life I keep skipping them
Only to move on with this shortcut
Short lived and short coming of this self inflicted miss education
I’ve analyzed my behavior
And I find it disappointing like Owner of Oakland Raiders

I almost lost my train of thought
In the reality of the actuality
Of this same old song
Smoking out of a bong
Getting my high on
Till the crack of dawn
Triggering my morning yawn
I’ve been here more than two times before
With the same losing score

When it rains it storms
And pouring ain’t the half of it I use to laugh at this

But I don’t know what this is
So understanding is not yet present
Of course this would happen to me
Someone that just hit his thirties
Smoking away my honest living
Calling on mommy
For a place to lay my head
Of the Salvation Army
With the literally starving
I have nowhere to go so let’s chat on where I’ve been
and then we will have a complete picture on why I never win

Proverbs 31 (Beauty)

is what her name is
Breath taking
Heart quaking
Attention taking

one of a kind
always on my mind
so elegant
so divine
it must be a crime
to be so Godly fine
three sixty five
It’s her smile
That brightens up my life
like sunshine
It’s her eyes
that mesmerize…
like the sight
of a city skyline
Perfect Dime
is her Sign

She the type women
that your Dreams
have dreams of…
like Folgers in your cup
she is the best part of waking up
she is my favorite drug
selling all my stuff
so i can afford just a little bit
of her
she is my
1st and 15th
of the month
A women
that every man would
someone to kick it wit
during those
4th down punts

Good Conversation
Child like Imagination
with ah..
Curious Fascination
with Goals
and ah..
Specific Destination
she is adjacent to greatness
with a
God-like Patience

Warmth and Love
is the Atmosphere
she creates
she seeks The Will of The Father
unlike the Faithless
advising her children
on the narrow path
they should be taking
A virtuous women
is so amazing
moment spent with another
just time wasted

A Good Woman
is like a
Good Foundation
once again…

A Good Woman

is like


Good Foundation

that’s why the virtues
of a Proverbs 31 Women
are so contagious
and “Pure Beauty”
is what her name is

Her Name was Beautiful

she was flawless at first glance
A wonder
A once in a lifetime kind of chance
A woman that would compliment any man
Her name was Beautiful
Her two best friends
Innocence & Kindness
had in their minds
That they were going to hook up Beautiful with a good man this time
They first picked Handsome & friends
To go on a group date
Handsome was feeling Beautiful
So he brought his confident friends Pride & Arrogance
So they could entertain Kindness & Innocence
Pride wasn’t feeling Innocence
So they really didn’t click
And Kindness thought Arrogance
Was really kind of a dick
After a couple hours Kindness decided to leave
She couldn’t believe Handsome had friend like these
A week later…
Beautiful & Innocence met
With their childhood friend Low-Self Esteem
These three met Handsome & his posse
At a club called Bad Dreams
Pride loves Low-Self Esteem because she is easy to manipulate
And Innocence was fed up because Arrogance she could not tolerate
So Beautiful started asking Handsome questions
Which Pride wouldn’t allow him to answer
And Arrogance was over Innocence
So we know how that date went
Beautiful started to live with Low-Self Esteem after a couple months
The two of them were really hanging tough
And since she stopped kicking it with Innocence
These last couple of weeks
Beautiful made some enemies in Jealousy & Envy
Especially when she started dating Good-Looking
Beautiful knew that Jealousy
Really liked Good-Looking
But his friend Smooth Talker was charming Low-Self Esteem
So this gave Beautiful an idea to hook up Good-Looking’s cousin
Named Liar with her home girl she sees every couple months
Named Depression
But Depression was too promiscuous
She was fucking Liar and Bad Decisions
And she hung out with Second-Guessing
Who was sleeping with Bad Decisions friend Empty-Relationships
So since Beautiful was hanging with Low-Self Esteem, Depression and Second-Guessing
She became attracted to leader of Bad Decisions & Empty-Relationships
This cat named Conflict
Beautiful and Conflict got the attention of the Gang of Rumors
And their ringleader Two-Cents
Teaming up with Jealous & Envy
These three polluted the block with thick clouded Resentment
Beautiful can’t see pass her friends chosen mistakes
Wondering “is this all that is left for me?”
“Will I end up with a man like Liar who is now with my friend Low-Self Esteem
Or will I end up like my girl Depression?”
Oh how she loves misery & poor company
But only fucks with Bad-Decisions
Because Second-Guessing
Keeps going back to Empty-Relationships
Low-Self Esteem tells Beautiful she needs to put on make-up to impress Conflict
And Depression says “We need companionship
So I will sleep with Bad-Decisions
So you can stay with Conflict”
And the Gang of Rumors spread because Envy is dating Two-Cents
And Beautiful is now lost without her old friends
Kindness & Innocence
Because they are back home dating Simple’s friends
Simple tried to talk to Beautiful a long time ago
But Beautiful didn’t want Simple
She wanted more
She wanted the status quo
And Handsome had more muscles
She lost a good friend in Kindness
Because Kindness was smart enough to know
“You are who you hang around with the most”
And since Arrogance & Pride did nothing but brag & boast
Handsome had to be pretty damn close
She tried to introduce Beautiful to Simple
But she had already made her choice
Beautiful was her own women
She was strong and had her own voice
But Kindness knew Handsome was nothing but a boy
Innocence didn’t get it until her time with Arrogance
And without those two as her sounding board
Her future relationships were evident
The friends she hung with were her mirror’s reflection
Beautiful would settle for Conflict
Just because she hung out with Depression
Which brought on Second-Guessing, Bad-Decisions
And Empty-Relationship of degradation
For Beautiful to be happy she must mend her friendships
With Kindness & Innocence
So she can open her heart to a Simple man again
Whose best friends are Encouraging & Entertaining
All of them holding “the nice guy” brand
Simple reminds Beautiful she’s too gorgeous for all that make-up
That she’s way too perfect to settle for Conflict
And her friend Low-Self Esteem is the start of her problem
once she cut her off
Second-Guessing stop calling
And Depression just disappeared
All of a sudden Jealousy & Envy
Beautiful couldn’t hear
Beautiful fail in love with Simple
Because he encouraged her innocence and her kindness he entertained
He simply told her she was unmatched
That she be mounted in a frame
Her friends were Innocence & Kindness
But Beautiful was her name

High Horse Riding

By: DAM!Unique

On my high horse
riding thru the valley of uncertainty
gazing into the horizon following nature’s call
Giving life to all
stepping into fresh new terrain
days and nights
with my eye on the prize
mind on the promise of good times
once I reach
the feeling with grass underneath my feet
taking a breath of the sweet
scent of milk and honey
and everything lovely
because where I’m from
the concrete wreaks of partiality
of living life casually
while collecting debt passively
where waking up has become
the liability
hard to see
past the smoke screen
brought to you visually
every day of the week
the way of mediocrity has become main street
daring to be different
will only get you part of a hiring freeze
the status quo is the best way to go
keep your mouth close
and a clean nose
staying politically correct and total conventional
is a formula to becoming dead broke
kids looking at their inheritance like a bad joke
The rules of the Fed’s notes changed in ’74
Why do you think the interest rates can be so low??
(Just think how much has been borrowed)
read the timeline  of monetary history
the Roman Empire depicts it perfectly
same thing happen in mid-20th century Germany
 the lack of financial literacy
camouflaged the debauching of the currency
and currently
the lottery is played by those in poverty
going on EBT shopping sprees
while the elephants and donkeys arguing over foreign policy
and the failing economy  
becoming a worldwide dichotomy
Where the elected officials are the new kings of comedy
While the globe is in a recession
I keep on progressing
leaving the town of second guessing
finding real answers for my questions
time well invested
to enjoy time in the present
taking steps towards awareness
riding on a horse named Gregarious
controlling my fears staying relentless
carrying bolt cutters
to go thru the fences
prepared to build bridges
to travel over the  trenches
what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger
so bring on the resistance
because change only comes with diligent presistance
Giddy Up!

the hopeful realMANtic

By: DAM!unique

What am i suppose to do?
with this
easy to forgive
selfless part of me
that is so eager to give
a mid week gift
forehead kiss
mixed with passion & a dash of innocence
i often wonder
what do i suppose to do with this
so i don’t look so needy or desperate
do i
put up a series of test and questions
to see
who might qualify
or who fits the best
for my thoughtful expressions
or do I
let the eyes do the selecting
getting beauty misrepresented
by not looking pass skin deep
knowing me
i will get bored if the conversation isn’t mentality
but i must do something with these
words of encouragement
not just bury them beneath years of embarrassment
from countless years of rejection
because the nice guy never wins
i have to use this touch of nourishment
i got a massage that will wash away life’s turbulence
i can’t help but to use my ear to listen in
on how your day went
& how your free time was spent
what’s your biggest goal? your deepest wish?
what’s your darkest desire? the perfect gift?
my friends say I’m too sensitive
but correction
I’m a realMANtic
i have feelings that forces me to meet my partners
i believe if i stay proactive
she will never be unhappy
with a natural sense of humor
i will always keep her laughing
and with my strict attention to detail
i will have her forever climaxing
i ask again
 what am i suppose to do?
until the right one comes through
someone who can handle me being true
open and totally honest
one who can believe in this promise
i am a man with only one intention
to be with one women with spunk and ambition
a queen with a dream a goal a purpose a lofty vision
but what am i suppose to do?
when most women believe a good man is hard to find
but i stop counting how many times i tried
to approach a female just to attempt to say hi
just to get shot down and for them to roll they eyes
do you know what that does to my pride
i brush it off it’s because my wrist
don’t shine
or it’s because when i open my mouth
you say i sound white
now what am i suppose to do with these
22 weeks
of cooking classes
the only reason I’m even asking
is because delivering breakfast in bed is one of my passions
i have learned 33 ways to prepare pancakes
that will truly make her lips shake
after she finishes her plate
i can’t wait
to see how her lips taste
eating and munching right through her lace
got her hips trembling like 808 bass
swimming in her Cash Rules Everything Around Me
I’m a Bad Boy waiting for her Mase
if this were a cucci eating contest
I’d be in first place
i need to do something
with this raging sensation
but there are a few stipulations
she must be happy and have a hobby
excluding television and things like shopping
And I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with TV and shopping
But there is more to life than
“TV and Shopping”
she must be independent and I’m not talking politics
but she must understand what executive orders are and what quantitative easing is
If not..
she’s always learning
her intelligence is forever increasing
because she always reading
always believing
in future achievements & double teaming
there are better days
ahead for two heads
of a chess game
well played
out of the comfort zone
we escape
foreign landscapes
to sitting
still in Chesapeake Lake
off in the horizon feeding each other grapes
about our past mistakes
because living with a endless amount of hugs
feels so great
euphoria is our constant
of mind
my greatest memory
will be our first time
so in tune with each other
our hearts beat at the same time
she will be my
at anytime
she will complete me
encourage me
to reach my peak
correct me
in my speech
anytime we would beef
i would lose sleep
because i would be
a hand written card asking
her to forgive me
with pop up letters and her favorite cartoon character in origami
because with her beside me
i feel nothing can stop me
she will be gentle kind hearted with a walk that is mean
because her 6 inch pump collection is every girls dream
she’ll make a brother want to double his salary
change tax brackets
but is there any women out there
worthy to have it
i want to give my heart away
but who will treat it right?
if you know of a dynamic women
please drop me a line
