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

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?

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.
