    It's been said that I am fairly controversial
    Cause my writing style is not to commercial
    I write about what I know about and verbalize
    what I observe.
    And I won't take nothing for my journey.
    Every bird needs to fly.
    And it's what I deserve.

    Many folk shy away from the rocking the boat
    status.
    I have been known to use whatever necessary
    aparatus.
    Not one to mince words I don't even mince meat.
    I feed those with teeth.
    Who can digest what they eat.
    And I won't take nothing for my journey.
    Every cook adds their own special something.
    If you don't your dish is remembered as
    just something or nothing.

    Been wealthy, been poor, been on the roof
    and down on the floor.
    Had loves gifts and all of its ruin.
    Gave lots for asking and some just for doing.
    People feel some different things when I do
    share what I know...it's all about a positive
    flow , even if the subject is not postive even
    if you just don't know.
    And I won't take nothing for my journey.
    All teacher's teach from books but they
    gain respect with eyeball (looks)!:eek:


    So as the faintest at this gathering merely
    cover their mouth's in horror.
    I will be there by the roadside screaming
    and shouting until tommorrow.
    That every story be told and everybody
    get love and understanding, respect
    without demanding and all the peace
    that life can afford.
    And an occassional if not daily "Thank you
    Lord!"
    Maya Angelou, I may never be
    But she is apart of my history
    She made me who I am going to be
    And I won't take nothing for my journey.
