Yasiin Bey: I’m Leaving (Poetry)

Mos-Def-3_2014

By: Yasiin Bey

Yeah
Yo yo what time the plane leaving?
Alright, see you at the airport

I’m leaving, on the next plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me, like you know I’ll never go
Even though you know I will
I’m a travelling man
Moving through places
Space and time
Got a lot of things I got to do
But God willing I’m coming back to you
My baby-boo
I’m a travelling man
Moving through places
Space and time
Gotta lotta things I got to do
But God willing I’m coming back to you
My baby-boo
I’m leaving

Yasiin Bey: Life Is Good (Poetry)

Yasiin-Bey-LIVEFROMAFRICA-wide

By: Yasiin Bey

Wake up in the mornin!
And I give thanks and praise, Open up the gift called a brand new day
This life is fantastic
It’s easy
It’s hard
It’s intense
It’s young
And on and on and on!
Road around hometown on the day I was born
There somethings changed and don’t change at all
Like the ghetto feel the pressure on coppas keep stepin on them, hungry got their chopper loaded and it could pop at any moment
Say a prayer for the sick and the sufferin
The odd-turners
The hardworkers
And hustlers
The sinner and saints
The cons and there customers
I came up with them
I keep in touch with them
I show love for them
And show love again
I plant a seed and grow love again
It’s most elegant
It’s celebrated long time
A lovely the horn that starts decorated voice that of imagination, inspiration information
Salute to Zulu Nation!
It’s like peace
Unity
Love
Let’s have some fun
