Smoking Ashes


Look at me, go ahead

I know you seethe

With envy and greed

But look at me

I am the hottest flicker

Of the flame

The MVP’s here to reign

On your parade

Are you insane to even dream

You can reach this pinnacle?

I may sound cynical but really

Let’s be serious

You do not possess the intellect

Or command respect

Gazes intersect and collide

Just to land on me

I write your checks and cash

You in for change

I am the reason for the

Disdain that remains plastered on your face

I am blazing hot

Until I can’t stand it

Climbing out of my own skin

To stand next myself

Only to realize

I never inspired any sparks

I was just smoking ashes….
