Look at my god; the fabric over my skin;
View it closely to find
The kinda person within.

Look this way and we'll keep on tourin';
The Brothers of Nike
and
Followers of Ralph Lauren.

Don't like that? You can find what you want;
Some Ray Ban sunglasses;
Shirt with a "V" down the front?

You see; I do hope that you're catchin' on quick;
Our #1 commandment is,
"You gotta look slick."

Leave your off'ring in the register
Flashy 's how we display
How off'ten we pray;
Straight out our pockets we pay.

In the church that is the mall
You just got to stand tall
Hoping that you'll be on top
of the styles of next fall
When you're really not on top
You're straight at the bottom;
In the palm of CEOs
Who (giggling) say,
"We got 'em."

Ouch, this explains a lot.

Only way to beat the CEOs is to become one, but even when you're at that level you're just an equal.

Disguise a seemingly shallow rap with Runescape references. Challenge Accepted.

Step across the line; I'm in a whole new world.
Finger froze hard; better get it uncurled.
'Cause I got my backpack loaded with pot
Gonna show the whole place why I'm so hot.

Gotta find me a bitch I can work all night
If they playin' safe you know they ain't right.
Same level as me with a defensive stat
So I can play my game; all offensive's where it's at.

I'll go to town on this bitch; we rockin' next to the ditch.
Ain't no other way; fight every inch and get rich.
Hit her with everything I got; empty up the last pot.
Hope my luck doesn't rot; this could be my last shot.

It all comes down to the final few hits
Already thinkin' 'bout that loot (yeah) what we gonna get?
When that bitch drops down straight on her knees
You know you done good; PK'd. Bitch please.

When the sun slips down
The spirits sail up.
Giggles we'll gather
In a red solo cup.

We love and we live;
We give to forget.
And together we smile
And have no regret.

Wherever we wander,
Miss Moon's smooth descent
Will warrant wry smiles
For a night well spent.

Lately I've been trying to spit some lines out;
Something that will tell the people a bit of what I'm about.
But you can't just write and expect the result to be good;
This stuff comes from within (well, at least it should).

A little drop of inspiration perspires from your conscience
That small drip is all it takes to stop your writing of nonsense.
And then all of a sudden words flow from pencil tip to pad;
A thunderstorm of perfection; words you'd never thought to add.

The inspiration drips on a seed of thought (allowing it to flourish)
Which flowers frivolously until the soul has been fully nourished.
The thought wilts back to normality; a constant struggle for the right terms
But the rich thought fertilizes your garden so another (hopefully) soon returns.

My recent attempt to spit some of my soul out
Just satisfied that deep desire (totally; all throughout).
Now it's time to sit hungry and hope for the drought to end
And think for another thought so my soul's garden will flower
again.


I never would have known that I can get into such a zone
If I hadn't been pressured into writing a short poem
For my lit class. Extra credit
Became fun instead of making me say "I dread it."

So here I am again returning to my place of origin;
Pizza Bandits, my family, I come back to you again.
Got the same goal of writing some extra credit rhymes,
But it didn't come easy like it did last time.

Honestly, though, I worked it into my control;
Verses 1 through four dug me out of my hole.
Writer's block no more; I don't fear poor reception
For another attempt at a little bonus credit redemption.

The only problem is that, maybe, I'd have to rap it so for it to flow well,
Give me a little feedback; if it didn't work then OH WELL!
I could always try again; same subject but afresh,
See how I could do if I tried my second best.

But now my feeling is fizzling away;
I'll be back with inspiration on another day.
I just added these extra bits as a bit of a road test,
So my closest friends could hopefully comprehend my process.

People die. It sucks. It really fucking sucks. Every single day, people die. Some ease into their death; a final gasp of air and then they're gone. Other people get their last gasp yanked from them. Every single human being -- all 7 billion of us -- are closer now to death then we were when I started typing a few moments ago.

What the fuck could possibly happen to somebody within their short time alive that allows them to justify their taking the life of another?

I just don't get it. Yeah, people are born angry. People are born with something to prove. Some people are born without everything properly locked into their head. I just don't know how thinking, "hey, I'm gonna shoot up a classroom of kids," can possibly pop into somebody's head. I also don't know how that same person can decide to ACT on such an inhumane thought.

It really fucks me up. I lose sleep when I think about murder. When does killing somebody EVER seem like a good idea? Is there really such an issue that constitutes demolishing the existence of another from the face of the earth?

I just feel like shit thinking about what happened today. You know what else happened, all the way across the globe today? A Chinese man CUT 22 people with a knife. Mass SHANKFEST. What the FUCK is going on? Do I even want to be part of a society that can drive somebody to such extreme measures? I want to talk to somebody who has killed before; be it a single person or several. I want to know why their head told them it was okay.

I'm rambling. Nobody will read this anyways. I guess what I want to get off my chest is.. a tip? A hope? I want everybody to live with love. I want everybody to be HAPPY where they are and work towards SELF-IMPROVEMENT. The only way our society can change is if EACH and EVERY individual is willing to work towards bettering his or her SELF. One man can't change everything; but everyBODY can change everyTHING. Team effort.

Live with love. Love those around you. If you're unhappy in the situation you're in, it is entirely your responsibility to fix it. It's also your responsibility to fix your situation in a wise, well-planned manner that betters not only yourself, but also those whom you hold close -- in a manner that makes others, young kids and peers included, look up to you.

Everybody can be a leader. Everybody can be a role model. There is no such thing as a naturally born role model. Be what you want those around you to be like.

Just love. Don't hate people; certainly don't act on hate. Acting on hate can really fuck up other people's lives, and that's not fucking fair. It's not your place to decide whether or not someone else deserves to keep breathing. I don't know whose it is, but it sure isn't yours. Nor mine. Nor any of the other 7 billion people's choice. We're all the same person, we've just grown up differently.

My existance is that of a small leaf; growing patiently amongst seven billion brethren all on the tree of life.
Alone, I am insignificant; expendable and not of assistance for our tree.
But pair me with many others -- each leaf working together -- and I can help our tree to grow.
Once my time has come to pass, I'll join the many before me who lived and died then drifted away to fertilize the ground below.

We only got on average like ninety years to live
So why isn't the question changed to what we all can give?
Why is it that society seems so inclined to lie to me;
Telling me to love my neighbor but then try to fuel the pride in me?

I'm getting mixed signals from this world that we're livin' in;
Even though deep inside of us its simply just human within.
Seven billion strong yet torn down by internal feuding
How many more dead before we've had our last shooting?

It's time to prioritize the things that really matter:
Between greed hate fear and love always choose the latter.
If everybody works to fix the pang felt in their heart
This world will start looking up and quit looking so dark.

But change can't happen with just one single mortal man;
We need a call to action; each of us hand in hand.
Stop looking to the sky to fix problems on the ground
Issues can be found just by looking around:

Starvation homelessness and drug abuse
Just a few issues that surround me and you.
As first-world citizens its our job to set the world a bar
of what a society can be like if all together we just are.
What we've got in the world today is lots of malice and hate;
Let's move along to now, people; throw the past away.


____________________________________________________



I ask you now to stretch your brain and kindly suggest
just one hero from a well-known story or quest
who managed to procure the elusive "success"
by simply asking the man whom he worshiped as the "best."
Ah, yes!
It seems that even without rest
you can scan all of the stories and find no test
that was ended simply with a prolonged prayer-fest
But somehow these heroes all succeeded nonetheless.
Move on.

I'm at my grandmother's house. This computer is not exactly capable of minecraft. I'll be back on the second or third of January.

Why do all grandparents' computers seem to be at least ten years old and incapable of running much past email?

My grandparents have a fully kitted out gaming computer that they use for solitaire and Facebook. Power of having money I guess.

I flow every day down a river of diverse faces
And sit with thirty others in our own little spaces.

I see all of the hate held in the hearts of my peers;
The hate that has its origin in their deepest fears;
Fright finds its birth in lack of knowledge;
Ironic, considering we're all trying to get to college.

I can't help but look at each little clique and think,
"We could be such friends if we just make a few amends."

Believe it or not, we all come from the same race;
Humanity is and always will be in this same little space:
Third rock from the sun, packed in face-to-face.

When I flow from class to class amidst cinderblock rivers
I'd like to see more helping hands instead of condescending shivers;
A lot more love and a few more givers;
If you treat life with love and compassion,
You'll get her.

The Ocean

I feel at times
As though I’m but a single drip
Amongst the ocean of humans
That creates our species.

At times I feel
As though my existence as a drip
Makes me an insignificant human
Amidst our ocean-sized species.

Now I realize --
Each small drip combines seamlessly,
Effortlessly creating a powerful
And graceful entity
That drapes itself,
With such dominant ease,
Over all that it wishes to exist upon.

Just by being a drip
In the ocean of humans
I become the one graceful
And ominous power
That can carve a beautiful figure
Into the brutish cliff.

Simultaneously,
The same power can
Rip life from unsuspecting
And undeserving entities
That I share Home with.

Though giant I am;
one drip in the ocean of Man,
Gentle I shall be;
Sharing my vast land.

Chains

We live.
Over-saturated by the weight
of modern living;
Our uncontrollable complexities
are stressed as high priorities.

We live.
Overexposed to murder
and evildoing;
Glorifying the actions of those with
mental instabilities
only opens up our scabbed-over
vulnerabilities.

We live
In a time period ready for change;
A time with empowerment to cast
off our chains --
and still we stay put for fear of the pains
that precede growth.

Social Media

I can scroll for days
in thirty different ways
in search for the start
of the status updates;
Still I won't find an end
to the information we send
to some book with a face
or a bird that knows a trend.

The stupidest thought
that my drunkenness sought
to proclaim to the public
is immortally wrought
into html.

Call it a self-righteous generation
or kids hungry for attention;
However it's labeled, what does the future hold
for ten years of boys and girls
who through Facebook and Twitter are told
that their every thought is as bold
as statements proven to be historical.

Sudden clarity between the eyes
reveals all of the things
that your mind disguised.

The most important of the Truth
can be too much to accept
and is stored in a haze
that your mind can't inspect.

Suddenly some connection
triggers your brain's detection
and an epiphany is birthed.

This sudden clear-mindedness
tears open the curtains
on what once blinded us.

For a moment we glimpse paradise;
a completely visible heaven

Until, just as swiftly as it opened,
your clarity curtain closes.
In heaven's wake
you grasp to intake
these visions
your mind exposes.

Huh, BUMP!

DAMN! I remembered this thread out of the blue, and it is great! Some of my earliest recorded poems and prose. Cool! Four years and many notebooks later, let me drop a couple rhymes for y'all to let it be known how life is rollin'.

I maintain that the Pizza Bandits are some of the best friends I've ever made, and I truly, dearly hope that each of you is excelling in whatever your endeavors are.

Me? I've been writing. I haven't slowed down, I just write poems at a rate of one or two per day. Here are a few recent ones. I would like to read anything y'all have written as well!

-----------------------------------------
February 26, 2016

It goes first page
for the weed & the homies who puff-fly
and second page
for the reasons & questions that start "why?"

I got a pain in my chest
usually cured by a sesh,
but I ain't been been blessed by adequate funds
so I had to slow down on the fun.

It goes third page
for my loneliness, sitting at home
and fourth page
for my onlyness -- in the flesh & bone.

I walk the way I walk;
I talk the way I talk --
I don't know no one like Luke,
so I must be doing something right
when I free my mind at night.

It goes last page
for the -ism that keeps you in it,
your patience and persistence will pay off in a minute.
When ya do as ya do,
you're actin as you
and you can do no wrong.

-----------------------------------
February 23, 2016

As the wind howls
and the ghosts moan on,
I stare into the night
where everyone has gone.
When the sun comes rolling back,
sometime around dawn:

I'll be hanging by a fingernail off the side of the planet
and as I lose my grip, I'll be shouting out
"DAMMIT!"

As I spin into space, the last glimpse I manage:
third rock from the sun.

I've been called back home --
it was all good fun;
it was all I'd known.

-----------------------------------------------------------
February 17, rhymes to a friend

How you been?
Keepin' it real, I presume?
Flew across the world for a semester -- zoom!
Well I been at it still,
writing words & wild thoughts
in an attempt to keep it real --
because the way I feel and how I act
sometimes seem at odds,
like not a fact.

Anyway,
wherever you're at, I hope you're smiling,
and Saturday nights, I know you're wiling --
and I understand your team has changed,
'cause mine has too.
When we return home,
it's all the same crew.

---------------------------------------------------------

pls post ur poums b-low.

Your writing is good Luke and I admire your dedication to write every day. I'm not one for creative writing; I'm much more comfortable writing a historical or political essay.

Completely off topic but I just remembered that I worked with a guy last summer who went to Appalachian State, though I think he might have graduated before you got there. His name was Will Garwood.

Some local color for you fine folks. I wrote this Monday afternoon on the commons area of App State campus. It was a damn circus out there.

*Ahem*

Pretty girls in sundresses
laze on Sanford Mall.
"Where will you be this weekend?"
I want to ask them all.

The hippies play hackeysack
and bounce of slacklines.
The military spends too much
to step on landmines.

Frat boys play football
as sunbathers idly watch,
waiting 'til the weekend comes
to turn it up a notch.

The cliques assemble cheerfully
and no hate can be found --
no bigoted, big-mouthed preachers around.

Sit with me and watch
peers hard at play --
a break from what must be done this day.

Every second counts
and I want them all,
like the pretty girls in sundresses
who lounge on Sanford Mall.
