I had a crazy 3 day weekend but nevertheless I was able to knock down three more mics. The price of reaching goals are priceless. So from work to mic I went at times it seemed as if the mic was an electronic energy drink that wouldn’t let me sleep…!
My fourth mic was on Friday July 13, 2012 at a poetry set called “Strictly for the listener’s”. Where a host of my poet brothers and sisters unified to hear testaments amplified, emotions released, and worries find peace.
My fifth mic was Sunday morning/evening July,15,2012 at a community based event at the Mosque Maryam located on the east side Chicago. This ORGANIZATION had several people of different backgrounds unite for one common good which is FIGHTING 4 A CRIME FREE COMMUNITY. Some people danced to be heard, some played instruments, and of course I sprayed lyrics to rewrite the story of the untold along with my P.O.E.T sister’s Zakeia, J.Butta, Spirit, and Imani Truth. See as an artist there is more than just creating music we have to be conscious on what we stand for. I rather be an asset to the community than a hindrance, and that is why I carefully select what I say and how I say it.
My sixth mic was the conclusion of my hectic weekend ended Sunday night / Monday morning on July 15/16, 2012 at a ALL white poetry event hosted by RexLex Productions. This night I allowed my ears to transform into receivers as I tentatively listened to the talent that hit the stage. I performed my hot 16 live to with a band called HD well I will call them H for now I borrowed their D (Drummer) to pull my show off. Photo’s and a live video is below I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Ladies in gentleman I would like to leave you with something dreams come true if your dream is long distance just keep calling and I’m sure one day it will be answered.
Cocktail and conversations event hosted by the super woman of poetry.
Lyric is determined to be heard one mic at a time. If dreams are fuel and you reach a goal what will keep your engine running…and the response that was given like only Lyric can say was simple, ” I never made it”! She believes the feeling of never obtaining a goal will keep you striving to hit a target, meaning settling becomes option less. With a goal in mind and another obstacle called a mic lying in front of her Lyric leaps as she set the mic on fire.
Chicago stand up!!! The talent the resides within this place is amazing. Mz. Jae one of the dopiest comedic poets in Chicago opened her mic to Lyric and she humbly excepted as she graced the stage at Cocktail and conversations. A set hosted by Mz.Jae herself at the Checkerboard Lounge in Hyde Park on Tuesdays.

Hey world now can you say romantically hectic. My second mic was at an intimate back yard wedding where I shouted out “I can hear it too” with my famous poem Common Cry for help. It was a different setting for me but what can I say I pulled it off. Let’s go over my checklist list
Scared X(yes – unknown environment)
Ready X(yes – rule number 5 always be prepared)
See this day I learned I don’t need a mic for my voice to be heard, nor a stage for my image to be seen, but I needed belief in me in order for others to believe in my message why I press forward to crack this goal of mine in half. Well until the next mic remember it doesn’t matter where you come from it’s where you decide to go that matters the most. So I praying this leads you to twitter to follow me @lyricsjourney.
Lyric (pics coming soon)
