Author Demitri Tyler: Behold

You

Like heaven falling

Like angel held

Like love would taste

If fruit were its shell

Like the woman in God-imagine

This world without you

They can keep it but leave me your smile

I will set it upon the sky

Call it my sun

Fashion a new world around you

Each day lifting my face to

Flower in your light

You like wind to bird song

Like moon face on water form

Stirring the soul quietly

Writer, orator and activist, Demitri the poet with the Greek name that if translated would read “dedicated to, follower of Mother Earth,” is a rising voice out of San Francisco planting words of wisdom as if seeds beneath the flesh. His talents as a rapper formed his early years gaining him recognition as mc to watch in underground circles with performances at the Upper Room the cities hottest poetry/rap venue at the time as well as his activism in and around the community and state college campuses.

Family tragedy and the realities of life caused this man to hang up his music career and vanish for over ten years but it was time well spent for out of the darkness has emerged a streaking comet who has made the transition from rap to poetry look seamless.
