cowtown design

it’s not perfect
nothing is
certainly not me
so i get this biz

i remember

telling those cats back in hot tdot
that i was leaving for a place
to even visit they would not
the fact i was departing from the place i was conceived
put the mental off the ignorant and my gut upon the grieve
they just couldn’t believe
but somehow i was certain i’d an ace upside my sleeve
and my sanity
i had to retrieve

this city has changed me
mad rearranged me
i started making such shifts
it was thought here had deranged me

my voice and my veins bled a fresh inflection
the edifice erected was designed by affection
i made the stories of my life come together
a collection

and here i be,
I’m in the zone, the place I call home
every day falling more in love with calgary
my land of opportunity
where i relate with poetry
and slam with the best and the rest in my society

i open young minds
the way here opened mine
with a rap hip-hop based flow of mad rhyme
years of investment in this cowtown design
many more coming for to age like fine wine

i’ve talked my way around this town
i’ve shut mad thought off like a power down
i’ve found my success
even through great duress
this capital of culture
truly is the new west
