    A poem for them (dedicated, to the Terrorist)

    Slience was the loudest thing
    They heard before they stepped
    On that plane confusion wafted in the cabin air
    Samari soldiers strategically placed in unsuspecting bombs
    Some type of code word was given and no one
    Was armed and or dangerous they did
    A spiritual holy wash before crossing deaths thresh hold
    The “band-aid” was too much to handle,
    It had to be removed and the first build went down
    Before it hit silent prayers were said
    Oh! Jesus
    God Help us
    Our soul is being taken
    Mothers held children
    Who held stuffed
    Animals that hit the floor
    Heartless men you say they had more heart
    Than the ***** standing on street
    Corner
    Killing their people daily
    Injecting their communities with crack, crank,
    And meth oh! let’s not forget speed.
    Just cause you think that, they were heartless,
    There soul was raised to carry the scars of
    Policies politics in his bloodline this is a poem for
    Them the three un-named un-identified souls that
    crossed heaven’s gate.
    This is a poem for then
    Usted tu’ neccacita comprende’
    Todos, el tiempo el mundo
    Es mal
    This is a poem 4 them
    They pray to the rising sun with the
    West wind in their finger tips un-holy act of war you say
    This is a poem for them
    And there loudest slience
    And the last building
    dropped

    (take a moment of slience for them)

    Verdad ! -

    NO DOUBT - We are the terrorists to them.

    I think peeps my age understand - but
    most folks i've tried to express this P.O.V. to who are
    set in their ways don't get it.

    And plenty of us black folks ran out
    and got flags and mess like we rep'n Uncle Sam
    as hard as we rep brand names and gang colors.

    I have NEVER agreed w/ the taking of innocent lives -
    but ****,
    If america wants to wage war on terrorism, they
    should wage war on their Ef-D up foreign policy.

    I saw a news special a couple of years ago
    that kids in Iraq have been living with water shortages
    for so long, that they are starting to become immune
    to the disease water shortage fosters at early ages.
    who cut off the water ? - we did.


    Exodus - i've been meaning to holla at you-
    You are very much welcomed new member.
    nice pic by the way also.
