This is a poem I wrote last January and just rediscovered on my computer. I was listening to a lot of rap music at the time, hence the title.
I’m not quite asleep and not quite awake
I can’t believe how this young body aches
Got to stop all these dark nights of late
I like to hang with the stars and the owls
and join the lone wolf when it howls
I’m one of those all night stay up laters
contemplating the moon and it’s craters
I’m not wasting my time by making these rhymes
But now it’s dawn and I’m ready to crash
So blow out the light and scatter the ash.
