I downloaded Propaganda‘s album awhile ago. He is a talented Christian spoken word poet and rapper. One song on his album hadn’t really infected me, though, until a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve been listening to it non-stop.
When I first met Laura, I wrote a poem about not having the right words to capture her. This song captures that same feeling. Stanzas like this:
Some things can’t even be said in poetry,
but I’ll give it a shot:
You are what I’m not.
What I wish to be,
Let me find a simile.
And, it captures the idea that meeting the “right” person is strange, because it is so “right”, but feeling “right” is a weird feeling. Because you’ve never felt it before:
It feels so right,
which ironically doesn’t feel right,
’cause it ain’t never felt right.
You feel me, right?
Listen and enjoy.
