Masses

I won’t speak to the masses
or bleed lyrical to please
this ain’t about fame
or coins jinglin’ to my knees

I won’t speak to the masses
or go beggin’ for ears
I ain’t tryin’ to be a cool kid
cliquin’ in, sippin’ beers

I won’t speak to the masses
I’ll use my voice when my spirit moves
it’ll find the ones it’s s’posed to
it’ll dance to its own grooves

  1. Great writing, and great message, Angela! I especially love the lines, “I’ll use my voice when my spirit moves / it’ll find the ones it’s s’posed to.” Sometimes I feel the pressure to speak/write just to pull audiences, but your poem reminded me of the importance of sticking with what truly moves us and trusting that’ll reach the right people. Thank you!
