Acidic | Artwork by @StevetheBum

I once took a tab of acid and tapped into different planets.
Met a dog that came from NASA. And a bird from Alabama sang me blues and Country Grammar as I held on to a flower.
I was holding on for dear life as my brain cells got devoured till I realized I’m the master of my mind and I have power so I started meditating for what seemed like endless hours
till I reached a peace of mind that only patience can acquire.
– Daniel Steez

Direct inspiration for the poem came from this trippy artwork by #GullySteez contributor @Stevethebum.

Hell | Artwork by Hell & Trafik Captured by @Ninaqueral

We all live our own versions of hell.
We only differ in the way we play the hands that we’re dealt.
We succumb or we rise.
We topple or grind.
We should never live in fear from what resides in our mind.
I find you seek the truth in every line you put to your nose.
You tell yourself that things are changing while you unroll the note
but everytime things start a-flaming you go back down that road.
I don’t know what else to tell ya I ain’t tell ya befo’. You always say that you’re just going through hell
but the hell you put your mama through is unparalleled.

Draped In Red | Artwork by @Albfs Captured by @Estorninos1

To the angel draped in red…
I’ll give you all your heart desires.

I would serenade you daily.
I’d crawl through a deadly fire
just to see you for a second
and tell you just how I’m feeling.

I would smother you with roses and make you feel like you’re dreaming.

And no one in my life could treat me quite as right as you.
I think I may have found a wife. I may have stumbled ‘pon a jewel.

And I don’t think you sense how real my intentions are now
but you’ll see it much clearer when you still shine in a crowd.

Padlocked |Artwork by @Lecogoyote Captured by @Tag_pdx

I’m tryna get inside her mind
but I think that it’s padlocked.
She’s talking pretty wild sometimes
and she says that I’m bad luck.

And I know that she’s doubting me.
But I guess that it’s fine to me
cuz I’m not built for salaries.
I’m working just to boss up.

And she don’t need to get that.
But she should just respect that.
I’m who I am. No take backs.
No shame. No games. No fake friends.
I’m gone.

Flower | Artwork by @Pabl0Navas Captured by @Estorninos1


She’s my flower.
She’s my muse.
She’s my rock.
Ride or die.
She’s a fuse.
When I pop she’s gon’ be by my side.
I’ma feed her all my love everyday I’m alive.
She’s the reason I don’t gotta take the pills I’m prescribed.
Her and I are forever intertwined in the eyes of the universe and I cherish every moment.
Every second.
Every night.
– Daniel Steez

Bless-ed | Artwork by @Shalakattack Captured by @Streetartaustralia


They said, “I heard the dead hang on her ears.
Her soul is very vibrant but she clutches on your fears.
She feasts on ribs of men and gets drunk off all of their tears!” But maybe she’s just waiting for the perfect one. He’s here
despite her imperfections and her many past transgressions. I’m here
cuz to me she’s just angelic. It’s weird
I’m feeling really close to heaven.
With her right by my side I get this feeling that I’m bless-ed.
