Eyes Wide Open – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

With my eyes wide open, I can still breathe,
With my eyes wide open, I can still see,
With my eyes wide open, I can still feel,
That the person I am is real and is still me,
Never should my eyes shutter closes,
Or utter disbelieves or I can’t to my woes,
For I shall strive and defeat obstacles that stands before me,
Because I can see them with both eyes wide,
Never leaving me sight even when I put them behind me,
So I shall never forget or be snuck upon by my past,
For I am going forward and leave my past last,
Left in my trail I am blazing pass,
I want to open other’s eyes, and leave them open wide,
For we can’t see what is ahead of us without our wide open eyes.  (Don’t Blink)

All About The Benjamins, Dollar Bills – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

I was excited at the fact they tried to sell me,

That if you went to school, get educated, lots of money is what I would get,

For I was a broke guy at the time and money was what I wanted,

Not saying working hard wasn’t going to cut it but I ain’t want small money,

I wanted tall residual checks of money with long amount of zeros,

Like a circular garden hose if you chopped it up in small pieces.

I am still on the straight and narrow on that fact, umm I mean concept,

Based on where the knowledge comes from can cost you more than you gain,

Bringing you more aggression and pain, enough to drive you insane that the mission you was on,

To get all the benjamins, the dollar bills, the loot, and the stack of cash mounted from the floor to the ceiling,

Every dealings I have put together was another exciting feeling that I will make it,

But no matter all the fails and time it takes, I am still excited at the fact that one day I will get that enormous money stack.

Always Bitching…

I don’t know why she always bitching,
As I step in the kitchen I get that stare,
I walk away real fast I just don’t care,
I get up out the bed, put on pants don’t look back,

 

Well Wishes…

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.

The Burna Effect EP (music album)

Elementary Beginnings: Soulful Jazz Funk

Mystic Mirrors (poetry book)

Thanks to everyone who supports me, I really appreciate it.

I Can’t – Jixi Fox [#Poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

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?

To Be Continued…

As The Page Turns, Amateur Night – Jixi Fox [#Poetry]

Bowery Poetry Club

I going to turn the page and see what I have done,

I don’t bust no shots, I need not carry a gun,

What I do is party hard and have me some fun,

I ain’t scare of nobody, so I ain’t got to run,

All of my life I been happy like 5 times,

When I was about 9 I started to write rhymes,

Most were jokes I guess it was just a sign,

When I get older and bolder I am going to shine,

Like it’s a dark night and a shooting star appears,

The only things nappy is my weed and my hair,

It’s once upon a time blah blah I don’t care,

If my moms see this it’s probably gonna disappear,

I hate to be fake but I like fishing on the lake,

My girl said she wanted cake, I gave her some flour and said go bake,

Why should I be bothered with troubled people for Christ sake,

That’s what I wonder, like wonder bread in which don’t taste so great.

(*Note (backstory)): This is a very old poem I wrote, mixing and match thoughts, as I was just an amateur with no direction but the goal of knowing I will be better and great down the line.  As I keep writing and my pages turn, I will learn and pass my amateur nights.

Miss Brown Sugar – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

Interlude:

While searching in the cupboard for something sweet, I ask myself, where is my Brown Sugar?

.

Patiently waiting for the day to say,

That love kindly came my way,

And stayed with me when I pray,

For it not to up and leave me abandoned, a stray,

Ok, batter up I am ready for the pitch,

A girl likely not to turn out to be a bitch,

Enriched with qualities and be open for discussions,

Even if they are hard to bear or have repercussions,

Where is my love, my sweetheart, my senorita,

My divine, headstrong, independent mamasita,

To be continued…

I Feel Like Flying – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

After all the lies,

I feel to Fly,

No motions to my actions,

I feel to Fly,

No sight to see,

I feel to Fly,

Love equals pain,

I feel to Fly,

I speak but no sound,

I feel to Fly,

I looks good I can’t sense you,

I feel to Fly,

I feel the touch but not you,

I feel to Fly,

I use nouns but no verbs,

I feel to Fly,

Got no games to play,

I feel to Fly,

I have no will to try,

I feel to Fly,

Can’t Live but can die,

I feel to Fly,

There are tears in my eyes,

I feel to Fly,

Some floats some glides,

I feel to Fly,

How can I cry,

I feel to Fly,

If all hopes is lost

Why do I feel like flying?
