An Artist’s Struggle of 2011, Jixi Fox

It’s been a very tough year being myself on a creative side.  I have idea after idea not to see them produce into results.  The pain of not being recognized for my true talents has been getting to me a little bit.  Entertaining others and making sure everyone has a good time is what I what to do and is very good at but I haven’t gotten the chance to do so.

I can’t say the whole year was a bust, even though a fighting through my infamously known, “Fall Curse of Fail Productivity” ummm that’s just some name I made up to represent that every fall project I have had for the last 3 years were failures.  When I say failure, I don’t mean of the creative side, but  the deliver and being ready on time.

I am ready to break curse, I am ready to be me, I am ready to overcome my struggles and unleash my creativity, to entertain the world.  My album is on the way and so is my book.

I Can’t – Jixi Fox [#Poetry]

I can’t, as the forbidden words echos from my lips,

I am reminded of a promise I made to myself as a little kid,

who was a nobody. an outsider to the world every chance he got he was looking in,

I told myself I can’t is not a real word, it blanket of air that don’t exist,

I can’t what is that?  Who says that?  What doesn’t that even mean?

People rely on me to make the world spin in their eyes

Crying words of pains and favors, while I can’t even shed tears from my own eyes when I cry,

I can’t be the only one who tries his hardest, to not leave burdens on upon anyone else but myself,

I don’t even ask for favors, For when I do people store them away leaving them to dry on shelves,

So if I can do for me, why can’t you do for you,

Damn I use the word can’t again, I am going to rephrase it to say, what can you do for you?

I challenge myself everyday to create possibilities and a direct line of escape,

For all my unknowns I try to prepare myself at all times not to choke or to faint,

I can’t be the only one who don’t want to echo those words,

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t,

I always looks forward to say what I can do,

For if I can do for me and you can’t do for you,

What are you even on this earth to do?

Life Is But A Dream – Jixi Fox [#Poetry]

stripper pole

It’s never easy but we live it,
It’s always in our face so we grill it,
We make up dreams, to create possibilities,
We struggle through life with responsibilities,
Big house, green lawn and a dog we envision it,
Credit card bills, terrible jobs, no degrees we living it,
We want to close our eyes to see our fantasies,
We have to open them sometimes to hate our reality,
Successful business, lovely marriage, health is what we want,
Fatty Burgers, expensive cars, and material things is what we bought,
Why can’t we just live our dreams, we aim to create,
Life is but a dream, real life is something we can’t escape,
We live we die we repeat, the curse we hope to break,
Dreams live on forever, our lives has an expiration date,
Life is an equation we try to solve even create our own codes,
Dreams stay infinite, we live our whole lives fighting for them, life becomes the foe.

(*Note (backstory)): I was thinking about that song Row Your Boat, one of the classic songs or melody while growing up, and I thought about how it adapted to life.  I thought about how we row row row our lives down the stream, thinking things will be merry and happy, but actually Life is But A Dream, not everyone gets to live the life they wanted.
