Hip-Poetry you sub-cultural art movement,
Who took part in the South African youth movement.
Hip-Poetry you MC-ing, DJ-ing, b-boying grafitti art,
Your significant uniqueness made me who I am.
Hip-Poetry you move within me, through me, around me.
Do you see that road to success?
You gave me the key,
You made me be a wanna be.
Hip-Poetry you inadequate, rhythmic mentor,
You give joy to those who can feel the drum beats,
Paint walls on the streets,
To those who do not accept defeat,
But follow their heart beat.
Hip-Poetry your rhythm, your dance, your touch, your mind, your voice, your free verse,
They almost became a curse to me,
But then again, Hip-Poetry has made me who I am today.
