If I Call A Rose A Weed
If I call a rose a weed
Would it give off the fragrance
Of a different seed?
Would it’s colour fade?
Would it tear up the roots that it had layed?
Or try to top it’s self with a spade?

Would it stop facing the sun?
Feel that it's time was done?
Hold its head down?
Let the rain help it drown?

Do you suppose?
That after being called a weed..
A rose
Would take off its petal's
And wear baggy clothes?
And start refering to all other flowers
As bitches & hoes?

The answer is...
No!

And nor should you or anyone else
Deflect sense of self
Or allow a word to define you
People who do
Are blind to
The fact
That we give words
Their definitions intact
That's why words can serve purpose
With multi dimensions
Because its not the word used
But there very intentions
That decide whether its used
for good or inflictions

I am not a good person to comment ~because I don't know anything about writing in the hip hop genre. But in my own opinion there are many lines that I do find very poetic. My favorite stanza is the second one. I love the message of your writing. Thanks for sharing!
