    IN THE MEANTIME
    RUNNING FROM MY PAST TIME
    PATIENTLY WAITING HERE FOR CLOSURE
    MY FATE IN THE HANDS OF ANOTHER WHITE MAN
    UNCLE SAM AND IT AINT NO JUSTICE FOR ME
    CLOSED LIKE A FLOWER FORCED TO ROT
    DEPRIEVED FROM ITS NUTRIENTS
    HIDDEN FROM ITS WATER
    AND FORCED TO TURN ITS SEEDS AWAY
    TORN FROM THE THRESHOLES OF HIS SOIL
    PLACED IN SHALLOW GROUND
    EXPECTED TO GROW
    SIDE WAYS
    SUNLIGHT GREW DARK
    WASNT ENOUGH LOVE THE FIRST TIME AROUND
    AGAINST ALL ODDS
    DEATH WAS A FACT
    READ THE CONTRACT
    COULDNT HOLD BACK
    CRIMINALS STARTING INNOCENT WARS TO PUT DEMOCRACY ON THE MAP
    LIVING WAS NO OPTION
    BUT I PROMISED TO
    SING SHOUT AND STAND SOLID
    TO BEAR BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS
    WAS MY ONLY DREAM
    CLOSED HALF WAY
    OPEN HALF WAY
    EQUALLY CONFUSED
    WANTING TO SEE MY SELF AGAIN
    MISTA

    REALITY AINT REALITY WHEN YOUR NOT HAPPY
    REALITY AINT REALITY AINT REALITY WHEN YOUR NOT HAPPY
    PRAYING PRAYING PRAYING PRAYING PRAYING...................................................... OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH
    PRAYING
    TO FUFILL THESE OVER BEARING MOMENTS OF PAIN
    IN THE MIDST OF MY DOMESTICATED ENEIMIES
    I HAVE FOUND JOY HERE
    WILL KEEP JOY HERE
    BROUGHT JOY HERE
    THE FIRST TIME AROUND
    COULDNT FIND JOY HERE
    UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES
    WILL I GIVE UP
    EVEN IF THE ROAD
    CLOSED UP
    LIFES HOLDS UP
    AND
    THE SUN AROSE
    AND BEGIN TO SHOW BEAUTIFUL THINGS
    FOR THIS I KNOW
    BUT I AM LAMONT
    MISTA IS NOT FAR AWAY BUT
    REALITY
    WAS THE BEST
    TEACHER
    REALITY WAS THE BEST WITNESS
    REALITY WAS THE BEST MOTHER
    NOW
    CAUGHT FOR BEING AWOL
    TRUTH ONLY THE TRUTH FOREVER TRUTH
    THE DOUBLE FEATURE
    BOTH SIDES TO AN IMPORTANT MAN
    I RAN
    JUST LIKE A SLAVE BROUGHT BACK IN CHAINS
    MY LFE WAS IN VAIN
    BUT NOW I FLY WITH CLOSED WINGS
    FROM ANY LOCATION
    MOVING NOT TOWARDS
    MOVING FOR
    THE MOVEMENT
    INCONCLUSION
    I
    CANT BE LAMONT DUNCAN
    OR
    PVT DUNCAN
    ONLY MISTA.........................................
    BUT NOW I OPEN MY WINDOW AND FLY
    A MUSE FOR THE MOVEMENT

    If one road is closed, another will be open for you, you seemed to flow with this easily, keep the scribes coming.

    Wow...brother this was an incrediblely moving piece
    your words were so gripping and insightful...
    a reflection of struggle, lessons learned and
    a bright much more enligtened future...
    I felt as if I were standing at the window
    watching you as you took to flight...at the end

    Excellent Write...Wonderful Peace...

    Continue on Poet!
