    I always know that a drop from you is going to stimulate my mind and this one right here is no exception you got my mind doing cartwheels as usual and working overtime looking at things from your perspective.

    a walk down the streets of EVERYDAY...

    ...we pray for guidance in the things we say...and do...and how we interact with the crew...wanting to do RIGHT but stuck in the plight of a PEOPLE struggling to find their center between extremes of GOOD & BAD. BUT i ain't mad...coz WE have arrived.

    flow dat.

    Gee, I can't say enough about this one. The rhyme scheme and pace wowed me. Then there is your message, when what seems to make sense, doesn't, we look a bit deeper only to find our past as well as our power. Way to flow poet, way to flow!

    thank you poets

    Thanks bro. $$RICH$$ i appreciate it if i got YOU to think, i think i've done my job thank you again CHI-brethren

    ASP - you simulate my mind too, minus the cartwheels, i do push-ups when i read your stuff

    Baller - yes everyday but we would not have an "everyday" if someone
    didn't bear the pain for us to have it so "easy" now and i pay homage to that

    WATZ - we have power a collective, but with everyone running around "doing their own thing" they/we can't see it

    SOMEBODY DIED FOR US, TOOK BEATINGS FOR US, and we need to forever
    pay our respects

    PICTURE ANY ONE OF US LIVING DURING SLAVERY TIMES,

    COULD YOU HANDLE IT?

    think about

    that's why i forever give praise to the ancestors

    :great:

    Sense is to learn...

    and gain wisdom from those who have come and gone before us.
    I'm very thankful, because I don't believe I could have handle it.

    Soja,


    You can't make sense of where you're going, if you don't recognize where you've been.


    Flow on poet...

    thank you poets

    FREE2 BME i try to be as clear as i can you know we live in a state of
    confusion as it is, i try not to add to that lol thanks for the love

    COCO - i probably wouldn't have seen the age of 19 they would've had to kill
    me

    EPI - our strength doesn't come from lifting weight and exercising it comes
    from all those spirits who paved the way and made it easier for you

    we SHOULD be forever grateful

    i KNOW i am
