Yenaros' mix of lyricism, detail, and style is a dangerous poetic force to be reckoned with.
Deeper Than Most
I’m not like any other man.
I see things in more dimensions and angles
Than most can.
It’s not geometry.
I’m talking about the angles of life.
The angles of life?
Yeah, the ones not in sight.
Interpreting life different than most?
As a matter of fact,
That question is right.
I see life so differently than others.
I can tell things about one person to another
That they didn’t even realize about themselves.
I told one girl today that she was beautiful,
But not the same way that she’s heard.
Instead of giving her empty phrases,
I spelled them out in a way that made
Her ponder over my words.
It’s God’s gift that I can say things
That make people wonder
Where exactly I come from because
My words surprise them like thunder.
