Life ain’t a bed of rose,
I tried to do the best I can,
Because I chose,
To raise up,
So close to the bottom,
My feet’s stuck,
The ambition I have,
Is called trust your real gut,
I have to dig myself out the mud,
Working too hard or catch some mean luck,
I am trying to get to a new high,
The lows dont seem so bad,
Because I feel like a new guy,
Dressing way too fly,
Soaring way too high,
I am in a new sky,
I Ain’t worrying about losing,
Until the noose is tied,
Trying to bring me down,
Take off my crown,
Life is a cycle,
Just a bunch of wild ups and downs.

About This Series:

Spoken Word Thursday is a series I have been doing for years, bringing the real and important topics to life. I still have the style to produced the works in poetry, lyrics and storytelling in an artistic way. Either in the form of writtens, poetry reading, poetry slam, slam poetry, and of course spoken word, creativity & originality will always be the core.
As a creative writer, I write about anything, as my inspiration list is almost infinite. There is nothing like connecting with people, while learning and sharing art & style.
I hope you enjoy the experience.

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.

I am loud as ever,
Don’t ask me to shut up,
I have the mission locked in,
Don’t let me pop up,
I am about to be a beast,
You want me locked up,
I exist,
Never down,
I have the top up,
Off the roof,
New whip on the streets,
You can’t see me with my words,
Continue reading,
I am ahead of the game,
I am already leading,
You hungry,
I am fed,
I been already eating,
Pop in on my zoom,
It’s that kind of meeting,
You know I am hot,
I been on the stove,
Forever heating.
