Confession Of A Ghostwriter

Everything Isn't Always As It Seems

At your verbal battles,

I play the shadows,

even though I'm the creator of the tales you tattle.

No one will ever know,

that not only do you not write -what you recite, but also,

that you don't even possess your own flow.

As long as you and I know what's real,

I could care less about how others feel,

even though my name isn't associated with your record deal,

I still get half of that mill'.

In your phone,

you have me listed under unknown,

in mine, I have you listed as my rap clone.

I'm just fine with our arrangement,

because from where I sit,

I'm 95% responsible for that platinum plus hit.

Take me out of the equation,

and there goes your power of persuasion,

doing it your way is a thought you think during that heavy drinking occasion.

I'm that safe bet,

and though we have never officially met,

connecting with me is a decision you'll never grow to regret.

I brought about clarity,

turned hope into prosperity.

You were lost but found,

the second you decided to pick me up, and the moment you put the pen down.

I studied this trade,

learned from the mistakes that were made,

and for my effort, I received more than just a passing grade.

I graduated the best in my class,

this is how you can go from last to first so fast,

your bright future is due to my dark past.

And there's never a need to feel some type of way,

because there's a hundred more just like you that pay me to write what they say.

"I love playing with words, convincing them that they mean so much more than they were made to believe."-Henery X (long).
