Music I Can Feel

by Derrick L. McFadden

Give me music I can feel
Instead of sugar coated pop bullshit
That ainít real
Give me music that feeds the soul
The kind of lyrics that outshines the rest
Something new, something bold
Give me music that provokes thought
Deep as the ocean
Solid as a rock
As in diamond
If your music ainít uplifting 
Then why are you rhyming?
 If your music ainít reaching for new levels
New heights
New sounds
Then you need to visit the underground.
Where individualism and creativity thrives
Pushing music to the edge
At the same time keeping it live.
There is more to life than ice and rides.
What about family, self-respect, and pride
How long do you think your career is gonna last
With elementary lyrics and beats that are trash.
Come on now 
Itís time to move on
From bragging about what you have
And how much you own.
I donít care about that
Or how much paper you stack
Is that where your minds at
Materialistic things come and go
We got to prepare for the future
Didnít you know? 
We got to get our minds right and cut out all this nonsense
Stepping into the light and out of the darkness.
