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.

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

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…

As Sly As A Fox – Jixi Fox

I am quite clever, cool, calm and collected,
I read my everyone’s every motion, their every step,
I am sly, cunning and awesomely charming,
I can attack in any which way without any warning.

The Grace of Action – Jixi Fox – [#poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

The Grace of Actions

The day was brick

Frozen stiff as a stick

Couldn’t move my eye lids

Not even for a wink

I needed some heat

To get some relief

But I could hardly speak

Body was strong but now weak

I need that tender touch

Even a little brush

This girl’s arms I must clutch

So excited I felt the rush

I am in the mood for romance

Therefore asked the girl to dance

Hopes are high wishing for a chance

To obtain and advance, somewhere in her pants

But that’s not on my mind

Even if so it’s not a crime

This girl is a dime

So pure and so divine

Every moment is crucial

This feeling is not something I am use to

In a way I feel quite unusual

But I guess this is how I should

For this is my Grace of Actions

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?

20 yr old – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

I am a menace much similar to the kid called Dennis,
Nobody can claim what I say all up in my sentence,
Busy as I bee is what they claim I am always is,
Can’t sleep not for a second is what it always is,
Hitting dem books, and counting them stacks,
Collecting them checks, putting cash up in the bank,

I am a multi-action kind of a dude,
No one knows me quite true,
Got stuff I am trying to do times two,
I am out all night, you checking in at curfew,

High school 3.7 already claimed,
Smashed couple sweet honies that loved to say my name,
College close to 3.0 already saved,
At 19 have my own company billed in my name,
Adding digits with digits you all look at my check,
Couple more months and years, I will be fresh out of debt,
Ice grilled on the streets cause I started from scratch,
Life as a hustler to dame is just the dash,
F all the talk about credit, give me cash,
Adding to my fame and fortune and call it my stash,
Moving so fast people thinking I am the flash,
The road is going to be rough watching out trying not to crash.

Default – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Jixi-Fox-Poetry-Tuesday-Series

By default you are the apple of my eye,
By default you are the only one that will ever see me cry,
Be default you are the only one that I could ever love,
The one that I am always thinking and dreaming of,

By default its only your lips that I crave,
By default your lips are what keeps me calm and safe everyday,
By default you are the one that’s better than the rest,
Just the love I deserve and I could never ever resist,

By default it’s memories of you that makes me reminisce,
By default no cloudy days but sunny ones that shall ever exist,
By default I can love more, and give to you my heart,
For it stays a whole in your hands and shall never break apart,

By default my life with you will definitely be a blessing,
By default on your chest is where I lay my head when resting,
By default loving you brings more joy than tears or sorrow,
These are the vows I can live with yesterday, today and tomorrow.

(*Note (backstory)): Think of your true love as your default setting, the person you will always reset and they will always be there.  We all don’t make it work the first time around, or the second or third, but when you know true love to be real, it will always be there, whether start or finish.)
