Open Mic Night 🎤#OPENMICNIGHT #OPENMIC

It’s the grand opening,
For anything spoken,
Or sung,
It’s low key a competition,
Each and everyone,
Who submit,
Could broadcast their talents,
While winning something legit,
So each and every week,
Submissions are open to the stage,
Get out of your cage,
Showcase your voice on centerstage,
Don’t be afraid,
To brave,
There is an audience for everyone.

*Note. “I have to include a small piece to see even if I am good enough for open mic night. 🙂
“In everything you do, add value.”

Calculating my beans,
Running the streets with my team,
Hustling hard because we are fiends,
So digital I am Microsoft Teams,
I believe,
I can create change,
Won’t know if it works,
Unless I drive my myself insane,
I am not the chosen one,
But I am game,
To put myself on a platform,
And maintain,
I am not the only one,
So I need to dig,
So long until the hole,
Is truly open,
Never stop until the opportunity in golden,
And the world has spoken,
Building credit,
And not debt,
You might feel like it’s impossible,
But never give in.

Every week, I am hosting OPEN MIC NIGHT on my blog starting in August 2022… It will be on a trial run. Where each week between Tuesday and Saturday talents across the globe can can submit a poem or song to be to enter in our weekly contest to win a prize. The goal is to build a community of original content and creators, and showcase their talents to the world in a unique form. I will rank what I think is the best 5-20 each week, in which the OPEN MIC NIGHT is open for viewing and polling to the world on MONDAY’s at 8pm.

I think it’s fairly simple. Share your original created craft, to possibly win, but also but in a lineup of other creatives, to be shared to a new audience to gain new viewership and possibly win something cool. I think it’s a win win.

I know this is a new initiative, in case I don’t have any submissions, my goal is to enter a few creators and tag them in, if they want to opt in, and showcase blogs, poetry, stories, songs, poems, creators around the world in the online WordPress community.

Submissions will be taken via several sources… I am working out the details currently, check back soon, as the release is soon upon us.

Mostly it may be via Instagram, TikTok & Youtube links for submission. For each if you are a creator you should be using your social media and displaying your art to the world.

LOOK FORWARD to OPEN MIC NIGHT each week on jixifox.me.

Lonely Nights | @jixifox

On my lonely nights I look up at the stars,
Hoping I could see you, goddess in my eyes beautiful,
To lift my spirits, and marinate in my soul, love and faith,
In my sheets, alone, and tucked away, for you I dream with me you stay.

True Love – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]

Let me be blunt, love is overrated,
Everyone is out to get it, or experience the feel,
Love is what you make it, if you say you love,
Something or somebody, Then there you go, that’s your love,

Love is like a mystery you have to figure out,
But as much as you pick up on the clues
You just seem to get side track and lost,
Then you ask where has love gone?
When will it come back again?
Do I have to go find it?
The expression slash impression of love, appeals to you,
But it has blinded you in thinking; love is a jump for joy
Knock it out the park crazy feeling, HOME RUN
But what have you endured to reach to this feeling of Love, to have it leave?

Will you fight for it?
Will you die for it?
What excites you about it?
Love can alter minds and lives, do you really want it?

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.
