Knife’s Edge // Meriem Ahmed.

Only twenty and graduating,
while building up my stats.

This is a focus on the passion,
I have no concern for the cash.

Consistent struggle,
and everyday hard work.

When things become too much,
I let my thoughts blow up in smoke.

Your time is up before you know it,
and I am merely scratching the start line.

I was never big on team sports,
always been me, myself and I.

Doesn’t matter where my mind flies to,
my heart is set in the right place.

I’m not looking to race against anyone,
I like to set my own pace.

When my mind overpowers my heart,
I simply let it wander.

No one can hold me back,
and no one can push me further.

Focused on what I want,
and all that I can be.

Tell me my dream is a lie,
but this dream is all I see.

Aware of all that I am,
I know what I am not.

I don’t dumb my brain with liquor,
I elevate my thoughts with pot.

Born head-strong and stubborn,
I face problems head on.

I confront tough situations,
because only cowards hide and run.

If you can’t deal with petty,
then you’re no good for real life shit.

This life isn’t pick and choose,
it’s more about hit and miss.

I don’t fancy being a romantic Shakespeare ,
or the next political Heaney.

I want to speak to people,
with no set tone,
no specific rhythm,
only personality.

And what is success really,
if it only benefits you?

Is success not inspiring,
success for others too?























GC Poetry: Sore // Youssef Al-Shanti.

Tanks and plains.
Cages and chains.
Fear, death, and blood stains.

A little voice rises from the smoke.
It was crying of anger.
It was crying provoke.

A bullet takes off.
A father dies.
On the rubble.
A son cries.
Family trouble.
A bullet lands.

Even though he is dead.
They will never be apart.
Weeping late night, no bed.
The father is always alive in the son’s heart.

Taken, put in a jail cell.
No classes.
No school bell.
No fear.
Only hate.
No cheer.
Too late.

A Concert Review: G-Eazy.

On the 5th of last month I went to go see G-Eazy perform at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin. I got to spend the eve of my 20th birthday with one of my coolest and closest girlfriends, Sian. The show G-Eazy put on that night was out of this world crazy, and I genuinely cannot think of a better way to have celebrated.

I’m not an early G-Eazy fan, not a day 1 supporter or anything. It was G-Eazy’s latest album ‘The Beautiful and Damned” that really won me over. Focused on the idea of duality and Gemini nature, I was hooked from first listen. If you haven’t listened to it yet, I would highly recommend it. I was near bloody obsessed with the album for the first 2 months after its release to the point that I thought it might have topped Russ’ debut album, which is crazy to anyone who knows how big a Russ fan I am. Once I was hooked on the album, it wasn’t long before I was hooked on his old work too. I then did my research on G-Eazy and I was intrigued almost immediately.

Sian is an early fan and she’s also a Gemini like moi. With only 2 days between both our birthdays, what better way to celebrate our birthday week than by going to see the King of Gemini himself? The energy G-Eazy brought to the crowd that night was bewildering. He blew my mind. G-Eazy performed the biggest hits off his latest album, such as Sober, Gotdamn, Eazy, and of course his infamous track with girlfriend Halsey, Him and I. It’s no secret that G-Eazy has a large and early following of Irish fans – anyone in the theatre that night could see that almost immediately. In all the rap concerts I’ve been to (excluding Russ), this was the most engaged crowd I had witnessed with an artist, at least lyrically. Old tracks or new, fans knew and sang along to every word.

Mid concert, G-Eazy slowed the concert down with No Less, wanting to “sing one for the ladies” in the crowd. We also got treated to old favourites such as Lotta That, Order More, Me Myself and I, and a personal favourite of mine, Calm Down. It was a special night and performance G-Eazy explained that night, with his mom in the crowd. It was a special night for me too, spending it with one of my sweetest friends and getting to celebrate the end of my teenage years.

Overall, G-Eazy’s energy is hard to compare to. His show was truly an out of this world experience, raw, and truly felt. I would recommend it to anyone looking for true art and rap brought to life. It was a night I will always remember and cherish. Next tour G-eazy brings around, it’s a no brainer to me now that I’ll be buying tickets.

G-Eazy; 5/5.
