    A hero

    The world flows, the worlds
    Say money make it
    What part does god play
    On judgment day?
    Will I turn the cheek when the times are bleek
    If my man stutter will I speak
    In his defense will I stand?
    For man, if it defies my plan
    Will I stand?
    Tall the trees shade me
    Even though the light evades me

    Where does the mirage lurk when
    The shadow disappears with the wind?
    When the clouds disappear?
    Who’s there when they reappear?
    Who can stand and run when the muscles cramp
    Whose voice is loud enough to speak with no amp?
    Who can vouch
    For a slouch who sleeps
    On dismantled curbs and begs peeps?
    For cash
    Who gone spread my ash?

    If I drop, who gone sign my signature
    Who gon be with me when it’s cold?
    My temperature
    Below Fahrenheit
    Who’s right?
    Who gone walk with him?
    Take heed, hold
    When cold
    Wind blow
    His fro
    When low?

    If a poet drops a flow and someone control c
    The pain, evoked and the words unspoken
    To the mass
    Who’s really crashed?
    And if he’s mad is really an ***
    Who speaks for the cright in legal matters?
    Or does it
    Really matter
    What happens to the people
    You my hero, tell me, we a poetic people?

    you are a poet..
    your flow is your own
    no one can take what is yours
    the date to the left
    marks the time so you know
    when you first enter the flow
    that came deep from your soul

    this is you
    no one else
    500 hundred years from now
    it will still be you
    so flow the vent
    my dear poet brother
    Peace
    Blue :heart:
