    well get the fuck out the foyer embroiled in a battle of wits the cattle is hit mad paddles are hit ping pong tables of lawyers loop hole spoilers laws made to encrypt tales failed to enlist pails full of bile slowly are tipped poured over shit pockets full of bits bacon forsaken taken told stories shake n bake unfolding enslavement broken homes oragami folds lack of compassion is the street codes sheeps sold shaved for fortunes untold as the stewed beef simmers slow spiced with a bitter blow nights turn to winter cold days become pitiful lives turn to dollar signs greed will only gratify your soul grows old and liquify's Lucifer sips and takes your life....

    SUMMERTIME

    my beautiful, brown skinned princess,
    a momentous dream, immensely intense,
    offering incense to honor gift thats heaven-scent
    up until the birthing day, my brain a canvas of sprayed thought like hood graffiti,
    layered with one million reasons why this child would need me,
    teach her to recite genealogy, with rich tales woven of unwritten mythology
    impart skills of elusive life methodology,
    remain fugitive at heart in worlds of subliminal, target marketed technology

    play the role of father, teacher, a philosophical role model,
    the one at 3am to get up, change nappies & warm a milk bottle
    shape and hone her mind, teach about the many flaws of mankind
    hope to become best friends, and I intend, to defend her fiercely 'til the end

    this newborn, adorned in fine egyptian cotton and other fabrics,
    remember how to count in synergy mathematics?
    now 1 + 1 = 4, not 2 or even 3 'cos its 2nd time round for me,
    admittedly sometimes I'm doubtful of my ability
    to provide for a 4 person family,
    but I continue to excel, without bragging I intuitively let it happen
    and things falls together like 31st December,
    I remember the way I stared into the embers,
    of the blunt end, extend my hand to old friends...
    sharing laughs, crack a beer; scent of change is in the air,
    glaring truth in the New Year; yeah...thinking of my career
    I'm making my way now, acquiring taste of full cream milk from a cash cow,
    KAPOW...like superheroes it hit me, damn! Im a grown man,
    living a 5 year plan, so I ignore shallow demands
    I learnt to stand, by working the hard earth with my own two hands
    not prepared to waste my life struggling in quicksand...

    and then she smiles, something so surreal and sweet makes all the shit worthwhile
    I'd run 10,000 miles just to see it on her dial, stare awhile
    file it to memory so even if stranded on a desert isle,
    starving to death, being eaten by a crocodile or some other vicious reptile
    I'd be at peace, complete, like the first love of a juvenile...

    my little girl...I would set fire to the whole world
    at dusk just to keep you warm, then at dawn,
    summon a torrential thunderstorm,
    so we could jump in the puddles,
    then go inside guzzle cocoa,
    while we dry off, play with jigsaw puzzles,
    never going to let my priorities get muddled

    ain' got no time for disbelievers & their negativity,
    pays not to meddle in the affairs of the heart & family
    you obviously dont know me or have a fucken clue about my capabilities
    pity, the fools who stricken with terminal disabilities
    dont bother pulling up at my curb, study the words
    of Eminem's Mockingbird, anthem heard by real men,
    feelin' the real struggle in the suburbs
    proverbs of real life, staunch guardians of the REAL world...
    haters watch close as I smile, and let my middle finger unfurl

    Elusive-Fugitive

    " Occupations ment, though better experiences challenged the faults, other moments went unexpected, for those that had to choose their own work, teams parted to activate the cause, reactions proposed to accept the rest, while some tribes tried to kill each one, as the spirits came and took a glance, well informed yet kept to continuous methods, when they started to perform, all that had taken notice plus noted of, esteems with devious active distructions, whilst was unable to recall, with those later postponed".

    A congragation of bombed illations rips through nations
    purpoused equation revalation and savage desperation
    condensation fades where weather vein corrodes in pain
    realisation degrades sickness reign in descriptive of gain
    bare witness to figures listed ingrain withered and plain


    peace just a little 5 lines before i go out peace

    money can corrupt happiness turn it into rich shallow sadness buying friends trust is damaged searching for love while gold diggers scavange money buys materials but materials quickly vanish Love is a state of mind over trust and time built and primed if you have happiness then money you'll find cream can fracture your foundation if the temptations glimmer and shine compared to dimmer dank times remember the rich divorce a lot and search for naught as money is there addiction causing friction that easily grinds a relationship down over time floating in money can drown the blind! feed our children and invoke new crimes if you search for happiness in wealth you're blind if you find happiness in health you're fine money used to instill happiness confines...

    I haven't read everything yet but I'm loving the vibe
    It seems like poetry is the only time I feel alive
    Well besides when I chill with my fam and build with my peeps
    Or learn some lessons from people that get denied in the streets
    I take journeys and try not to throw my family off key
    When all I'm trying to do is get myself completly free
    It's time to eat and yeah I know this isn't the freestyle chamber
    But I had to kick a verse to show that I'm not being a stranger
    I leave you with the words "Peace Be Unto You"
    Lets build and congrigate cause this is how us poets do

    some random thoughts I quickly jotted...

    congregated minds equate an open thinking box
    constipated rhymes create shitty covered cocks

    lincoln logs are building blocks in adolescent thoughts
    cinder blocks are bombed and dropped in terroristic plots

    fishes that are hooked then sorted... pinchers reflex you're paying for it

    Who's God??

    Is he a spook in the sky? Atheists demand proof have we been spoofed to believe lies
    Have we been deceived by fictious stories of heaven n' hell when we die?
    Churches defeat the purpose of finding what's beneath the surface
    Wage war on sinners as if their free of sin, christians started crusifixion
    Slaughtered indians, a trail of tears history is missing facts
    I'm here to bring you back and awaken sleepy heads from their naps
    Even scriptures have been tainted it's been stated by historians
    Ya'll ignoring them mislead by Satan, hating the truth
    Pastors, and preachers fool you with their interpretations of the truth

    we're trapped in a world of pleasure and pain
    where even sexual encounters are one in the same
    and tyrants of men steal wives of the slain
    while the suffering stay humble and the rich always complain
    and alcholic beverages are produced from the grain
    while there's children who starve when bread can be made by the same

    I smell the weight of a diaper from a baby neglected
    I see a woman thown on the streets after her house was inspected
    I hear a crack head beg for change cuz he like's pleasure injected
    I feel my body grow week from all these things- it's infected
    a world where it's better to be feared then respected

    Peace to all the poets dropping' the mad lines
    weather it be food for thought or simple nourishment for the mind
    as the bells of life chime, they take me back to a time
    when a woman had no worries and thoughts were blurry when it came to crime
    it all seems so distant because the world is full of ills
    sending shivers up my spine while leaving my flesh covered with chills
    no one gives a fuck about the thrills
    cuz, it's only momentary elation
    a snap back to reality makes one envision the vast frustration
    ... complications holding us down
    while the higher ups plaster on frowns
    swimming in a sea of luxury while the rest of us just drown
    they're selfishly holding the life boats with the hopes that keep us afloat
    teasing us like little children and stringing us along like fiends on dope
    to hell with all their bullshit attempts to sell us these dreams of freedom
    brainwashed by sugarcoated lines that have the flock going wherever they choose to lead them
    but I'll rebel ...
    cuz see, a sister wants out of this cell
    I don't give a damn about this melting pot they call America because to me it's synonymous with hell
    it's like living a death sentence that been wrongly opposed upon me
    still suppressed and oppressed in a land where we're supposed to be free
    so, fuck the 40 acres and a mule, how about real employment with descent wages
    and owning a home and an automobile without prices and taxes being so outrageous
    how about a free collage education and some muthafuckin' healthcare
    you know, some real shit for the "children" instead of the endless grip of welfare
    help solidify this "future" that you claim they're supposed to be
    because the future as it stands right now appears to me to be quite bleak
    the only thing our government does is procrastinate and hesitate
    putting our lives on the back burner, not giving a damn about out fate
    I feel hopeless at times, like I'm trapped in a maze with no escape
    That's just how it seems ...
    I just want to spread my wing and take flight to a land of lost dreams
    where people really care about their fellow man first, and give a fuck about the possessions and the cream
    I'm not just blowing off some steam, I'm giving a voice to some real issues
    trying to let the masses of children know "I'M STILL WITH YOU"
    hopefully others will feel my message so that I won't have to stand alone
    unite under the flags of what right so that we can provide our children with a "HOME"


    Peace




    I sew...
    beautiful seeds that sprout flowers thatís deeply rooted
    your weak style-diluted with concepts thatís so polluted
    my words flourish, creating jewels the conscious will cherish ...

    Dae your 2 posts here are fantastic & inspiring, loaded with armor piercing truth.
    Spoken, digging your original style and confrontative perspective on religion,
    Black W.I.S.D.O.M taking it back to the essence, peace be upon you brother. Look forward to reading more from you
    Charging Soldier- Deep, insightful & beautifully worded. A different approach to some of the material I've read from you. Keepin' it real in the badlandz!

    Peace to everyone postin' in here. Shit is high class, no doubt. Too many quotables to even try to specifically mention them all, lets keep building!

    ONE LOVE
