Got your Mind in Circles

mind circles



By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


I got your head spinning

When I’m lyrically spitting

These words that caress your soul

And when it’s all said and told

I got you in my hold

The whispers of my flow got you tripping on your toes

You catch a good rhythm from my melodious prose

You love the sound of my melodious voice

Will you go home with me; well… that’s your choice

My connotations of sound let you unwind

My musical show makes you slow grind

My words become hands that caress your curves

We dance and dance a topsy turve

Your knees get weak when you hear me speak

The privilege is yours this ain’t for the meek

When you get with me girl I’ll make you speak

In tongues never heard with a kiss on the cheek

I sat in a Tree and Pondered

sat in a tree


By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.

I climbed up in a tree one day to sit and think awhile

So many thoughts passed at that time overwhelming me and I almost fell down

A voice told me to be strong and I caught hold of myself

I looked around to find said voice but it was then I realized I was all alone

I sat back upon that tree to think again and at that moment another voice I did hear

It said, “Why do you sit and think instead of pursuing the thoughts that you think”

Started but not moved I responded

“I’m afraid of what the world might think, it’s a harsh place full of let downs and negativity”

The voice responded loud and clear

“If you worry about what’s thought of you, you’re wasting your precious time, because whether or not they think or not you have to stay on your grind”

“Come down outta that tree my friend and start your life anew”

“Cause the more you sit and ponder, opportunity passes you by”

I said, “Starting today I am a man of business, a man of action, a man chasing destiny”

“Outta this tree I came today to do what’s best for me, and along the way I hope to help someone the way this voice helped me”

Off I went to do my calling

Never to sit and ponder

About life’s daily struggles

Is Lauryn Hill a Poetic Genius?

By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


The always soulful Lauryn Noel Hill is one of the most prolific artists of our time. Always an avid writer, her soul stirring songs has captured the hearts of millions worldwide. Hill has an amazing voice and the topics of her songs are the defining point of her work.


Oppression, love, passion, heartbreak, is just a few of the many emotions she touches on in her songs. She has won many awards and accolades, but these pale in comparison to how her words have changed millions of lives. Her true poetic soul invites us to feel where she is coming from and gives us advice on how to reach our divine goals.


Yes, Lauryn Hill is, in my opinion, a poetic genius. Her ability to touch millions, her passion for her work, and her continued effort to write a change in society will forever be remembered. Her poetic expressions are truly felt.
