Has-been

What did I ever do for you to treat me so cruel
Why are you a genius yet act like a fool
Why is your life a valley of stool
Why do you keep acting like you’re just a tool
Why do you stay prisoner under your own rule
Why do you keep lying as if it were cool

Why does my presence get under your skin
Why does your lie always come with a grin
Why was I never allowed to be your friend
Why do you always take my heart for a spin
Why do you consider losing a win
Why do you spy on me if I’m just a has-been

  1. I do freestyle alot. It’s kinda my thing. I’m glad you love it cuz poetry is leaking from my pores. I don’t really think there’s anything easy about freestyling or rhyming though. Or poetry in general. I have extremely complex pieces as well as tiny micro rhyme with big impact. There’s always an underlying message or theme in my poetry. So grateful for your feedback, thank you! ❤️

  2. I’m very lucky I got to travel the world while serving the Army for 15 years! Might have learned a thing or two. Thank you!! I’m actually very nervous hitting publish every time! ❤️
