What a poetMoreI remember attending an Open Mic session at a venue located in downtown Detroit. A poet took the stage and before reciting his piece, he said that a poet has five minutes to impact his or her audience either negatively or positively.

What a poet said in those five minutes could either create change or maintain the status quo.I went home that evening and asked myself, What if, after five minutes, I could no longer write poetry for the rest of my life. What would I write in my last five minutes? The answer? If I Only Had Five Minutes.

The Last Will and Testament of a Hip Hop Poet.If I Only Had Five Minutes. The Last Will and Testament of a Hip Hop Poet is a three disc compilation: Life, Love, & Rhymes. In 26 poems I speak his language, swallow her pain, dream my memories, and create our rhythm. In my five minutes I fill white space with unlimited possibility. In my five minutes, I write now, so others can remember later...What will you do with your five minutes? Tia DeShay
