    wrote this verse in reverse, lost as I rehearse,
    with my lips pursed, knowing only a love so strong 1000 chests burst,
    broke a deadly curse, reminisce the caper,
    crazy thoughts of you melt onto paper,
    ends of the earth is where I'll take ya

    this young buck watched you down the street,
    soul suffocating, silky heat
    damn near fell right off my seat
    my jaw was resting on my feet!
    first night spent together.
    we drowned in passionate pools of pleasure
    exceeding measures of mortal men
    hit it at a perfect 10
    serenade you softly in a state of total zen

    ashamed, those times mind games were played,
    the hurtful names, allaying blame,
    I even lied to myself...
    gotta leave pride & ego on the shelf
    you & I together the finest wealth

    forever I will praise, your displays of sacrificing ways,
    while you walked the game I terminally talked
    sought to tame my wayward thought
    headline on front page news reports,
    now that scandalous life's outlined in chalk

    truest romance...it pushes on through real life situations,
    we wept together as our first childs unborn life was taken,
    took the man in me to grasp hold of sanity
    alone at night, in the window burns candlelight,
    wasnt right, hurt so we'd fight,
    I'd plead walk away, sad but true,
    trouble ensued, heartless things I'd do when I felt used

    time passed, after hard lessons learned, finally the winds turned,
    whole time for you my heart yearned,
    too concerned about pride or money earned,
    countless times my hands were burnt
    realise how much I've won, anthem sung,
    your strengths live proudly in the eyes of our children.

    down mist-covered mountains, water rushes back to sea
    profound spirit washing over me
    intangible roots link land & family
    blessed you in my vicinity,
    and this amazing ability to articulate my unflinching loyalty
    for knowing, that forever our souls are intertwined in perpetual unity
    has set me free...

    Elusive-Fugitive

    the gates of heaven open only to close emotions,
    extortion in the fiery pitts of hell your slowly frozen,
    soul corrosion fragile passive movements broken,
    arching arson scorching smolding snouts snortin,
    muddy matter molding massive patterns sorting,
    a couple courting hand holding uncle sams pointing,
    destroying family structure Destro cobra commander corrupters,
    Gi Joe's suffer taken from Lovers lives swept under covers,
    killing our brothers pillaging others as mothers cry and suffer...

    an old favorite:



    \\\::~ ABSENCE OF LIGHT ~::///




    as passionless activists write, fascists recite in the absence of light
    askin’ for christ in the blackness of night... bastards panic in fright with ravenous spite
    imagine the sight as the vatican fights our rationless practice of rights
    pacifist knights attackin’ the dragons of plight for fractions of life
    with hazardous might, savages brandish a knife and vanish from sight
    banished’em twice; fiends hackin’ with hatchets of ice; wreak havoc, ravagin’ mics
    witness the precision of four; spirits were maliciously torn by the contradictin’ intentions of lords
    the vicious inflictions of war; politicians christened with horns
    violently written compositions of gore, driven by swords
    divisive religions were born, your malignant intuition forlorn; rivet critical conditions of storms
    prolific visions forewarned your exquisite depictions of horror
    crucifixions with thorns, crimson liquids beginnin’ to pour
    i invented the pain that wrenches your brain; injected the bane
    those contendin’ my reign feigned misdirected peasants in chains; i’m rendered insane
    aggressive descendants of rage were sentenced to graves imbedded in flames
    horrendous rains reddened the plains, as effervescent legends were slain
    you’ll forever treasure the shame, surrender you vein; ancient weapons and lesson were gained
    a treacherous fame... send in the brethren of armageddon in vain

    The planets youths in shackles and mother earth is cracked in half yo
    We’ve forged battles outcomes by makin us mammals eat man bro
    But the god aint breeding cattle but bringing my wrath yo to make ya brain rattle
    Its sad thou how we manage to live our life 86 years before the almighty disintegrates mans soul
    The slightest shift of magnetic force placed the planet on a destruction course
    From the days of swinging swords on a horse to missiles landing on a catts porch
    Niggas forced to live without the love of they corpse while exec’s got 4 or more porches
    Poisoned orchids planted to scorn the ghetto roses thistles left to poke at the last of the rodents
    Some true left within but lifeless with no motion caused to live life in a dry ocean
    Morbid potion induced in a system down the throats of the chosen
    So a man has rosin from the midst of the shadows bringing incisive light from deep within the gallows
    A gallant figure knowledge poured from the chalice of the reaper
    No mic has shadowed but been disfigured and I drop history to you meager
    Come wit da hottest ether bound from the mountains
    Reppin from the highest point of my housing-thousands arose like the foot clan of shoalin
    Arrows pouncing like needles shot in da air alignments arise from a field as spectators stare
    Hippies forced to cut off they hair and known thugs run in despair
    Da maximus has shed accurate plots of the government-whose runnin it
    And why da poor take the cunning hits ….I GUESS FOR SURVIVAL

    " Don't yet rejoice, in what had been overcomed, for that was the past, which was later suceeded, afterward must have been a while, to explain all the goings, truth was only kept amongst, those which needed to know, only to be mentioned, but not to be known, and there are many more situations to thrill, and will remain, to go forward after, all that was but now is completed, yet one to not change, willed to see continuation, in a revolved cycle, which was once done, repeated and not was it once noticed, thats how it went, of its surviving life time, those who witnessed, could experience it all over again, through their memory mind".

    Wow ... it's nice to come back and see something like this jumping off in the Temple. Maybe now we can all replace all of our lost jewels with some even greater ones. Props to you Bigben for resetting it off .

    this is an old piece

    *An Unnecessary Tragedy

    A child left alone to roam with no place to call her own
    a heart once warm-now broken, cold and hard like stone
    love is something she’s never known,
    so her feelings of hatred are full blown
    misguided, pride subsided, bitter and cold to the bone
    the place she once called home, forgotten, only memories of her past life
    enveloped in a cyclone of self destruction, grief and strife
    she walks the streets and leaves behind her own trail of tears
    facing obstacles while climbing hills, burdened down with anguish and fear
    her pain is so severe that she wishes she could disappear
    the code of the homeless are the only rules to which she’s ever adhered
    stuck in a cycle of the surreal,
    a relentless wheel unable to persevere
    with a hunger that can’t be concealed,
    a life of crime and prostitution beginning to have more appeal
    in the face of danger, she’s transformed into a woman of the night
    a dreadful plight that puts humiliation within her line of sight
    cohorts filled with spite,
    shame extinguished her light
    malevolent thoughts now replace her previous feelings of fright
    consumed by immorality
    no sense of rationality
    acts of brutality have forever altered her personality
    coupled with a mentality that stemmed from her venality
    a new statistic since the breakdown that caused her current state of duality
    multiple personalities
    they now mask any trace of previous originality
    her fatality a sad reality ... as I read about her life
    learning through this paper that she was a beloved daughter, mother and wife
    words of sorrow so consice, but who pays the ultimate price?
    should’ve, could’ve, and would’ve-too late, they simply won’t suffice
    some words of advice ... we should all think twice,
    before passing judgment on a person without knowing the story of their life
    see, the words you say today could possibly save someone tomorrow
    lift them out of their sorrow
    so in grief and despair they won’t wallow
    maybe even swallow ...
    the pride that might lead to a rash decision
    and enable them to envision,
    hope, with a great desire for livin’
    instead of the condemning darkness of a self contained prison ....




    we all need to be aware of the power of our words!

    Peace




    I sew...
    beautiful seeds that sprout flowers that’s deeply rooted
    your weak style-diluted with concepts that’s so polluted

    Peace all,

    this is my first time submitting my thoughts on-line so any feedback would be cool.


    "You Already Know"

    Who am I?...I am that thing that existed
    since before the beginning.
    Fuck a Big Bang Theory, clearly I brought
    myself into manifestation as the creation
    of the dead and the living.
    This is no metaphor nor riddle, just a simple
    question, a quest for the truth to see if you
    knew, Who am I?...Well it's kinda hard to
    explain. See I take on many forms,
    some complex others plane. No name just
    mostly descriptions, written in twisted up
    scriptures. Stolen from princes over centuries
    who built pyramids in Egypt for me.
    Still my story goes untold in this cold world.
    I'm often forgotten, the rotten and dying
    Who am I?...The gift and the curse, the better
    of the best, the less of the worst. The hunger
    and thirst felt by evey kid in every project,
    the object of satisfaction. Reason you be asking me
    to have shit and you ain't never answer my question,
    Who am I?...You don't even know me still you wanna
    control me and flaunt me on some phoney
    paper me and call it money. For sure that's not me.
    Another form of trickery to slave me. They wanna
    slay me, they hate me cuz i got nothing but love but,
    Who am I?...I am the inside and outside of everything,
    literally living invisibly for eternity. I am something to
    feel deep in your heart, yet nothing. But if you turn
    the lights off you can see me in the dark. I hear what
    you say, and speak when you talk.
    I am reality. Given the name God. Even with all that
    said I'm still scared most don't know Who I Am!

    WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!
