    i cry
    rain pours from
    my heart
    washing away life
    vice grip tightens
    breath is stolen
    faith in love
    questionable
    fade to black

    and still...

    the LOVE of GOD
    is the Love that
    wakes me each morning
    provides my breath
    creator of you and i
    protector of my soul
    worthy of praise...

    and still...

    i reap the benefits of stillness
    after my mind has questioned
    and is lacking in answers
    often times tears
    spell it out for me
    other times
    i wait
    and wait
    patiently
    longinly
    loyally

    and still...

    wondering consumes me
    life keeps moving
    around
    on top of
    and thru me
    but i see
    i think i see
    im sure i see
    i wanna see
    please help me...
    SEE
    this never becomes less
    confusing
    only more or less
    mainly yes
    im outta breath
    so take the only words i have left
    remember me...
    and still...

    yes great write

    yes this statement is so true

    if you want to "see" bad enough pray and it will come, but will you be able
    to recognize it when it does is the question (not you per se, i was speaking in general terms)

    this piece spoke to the soul man

    peace

    DSS- It definately spoke to mine as I was reading stuff from 2001 and 2002 respectively. It's so interesting the things that resonate and are relevant THEN and NOW.

    Baller- and still...who you are will only be as great as YOU yourself can see because where others believe based on what you show...you have to KNOW!
