About Me

My photo
I'm Lejon Mumford from Detroit Michgan. I'm 17 about to be 18 on Nov 28th. I love writing poetry and I actually started after my father passed away in December of 2006. I wrote a poem in his Obituary that i thought was really good, and it took me three months to write again and my baby inspired it in march when i wrote a poem about my father on the internet. It sparked a lot of comments on Facebook so i pretty much have been writing ever since. Although since then my writing abilities have grown and using my two favorite rappers (Eminem, Lupe) I have pulled inspiration from their lyrics time and time again. Oh and i really have gotten alot of inspiration out of Linkin Park also. When I write I'm able to become any one, which means it's a different point of view thus my name becomes Notion because I am a living concept or depiction of everything when I'm holding my pen.

"Look Away"


Look away, as if there’s a distraction to your right
And don’t act like you don’t know why
All it takes is one contact with another’s eyes
And they’ll see everything inside

The crack of their mouth will ripple
Your mind’s blowing, and triple
The adrenaline’s flowing, the pressure
Of your tremble, the sowing

Like watching the timer to a bomb click on
And you see the chemicals getting closer
And this bomb hooked by chain,
Has a grapple hook woven into your shoulder

Back to that crack, when it is completed
And your defeated, secreted in soil like deceased again
Right where the darkness is,
The dust

Do you know how long it took to stitch up the scalpel cuts
The tummy tucks, stitching close you tear ducts
That completed crack is a slight grin
A grin acknowledging the weakness in you

Don’t see the grin, and in the end
you’ll be greater than men
What?
You ask why? Because

The less a human reveals emotion
The more unlike human he is, this human
Can become flawless, boundless and nothing
But sounding to the sound less

Because human emotions weakens
it’s dominance in voice

Notion reciting his piece called "Neuron's Ink"

This poem represents the level of depth my poetry

has reached and the process it takes to

get there. It's kinda like I'm showing off.

I Need That


If it is what you seek

then twist the knob each week

open the door to reach this low at it's peek

do it with caution, real bleek


press it in your arm

shake to make sure it works

do not be alarmed

if it's this pain you'll soon irk


the love of your addiction

is always real love

because you'd sacrifice life

just to accept with a hug


now when they give you that small nudge,
open your arms and give

your needle the biggest

tightest hug,
because of course thats true love
