    Arms opened wide, I stand to greet you.
    So happy I finally get to meet you.
    We met in cyber heaven and flowed like a river.
    The scribes that you vibe made my whole body shiver.
    Heart opened wide, I feel the status quo defeat you.
    The poison pen brigade rush to punish and to beat you.
    Poetic freedom is a thing to be cherished.
    Where did all the free thinking people go, I think they
    perished.

    Arms opened wide, I stand to greet you.
    So glad now that we had the chance to be.
    To sad the others had no eyes to see.
    All of the beauty that was in your prose.
    They are only worried about the price of your clothes.
    Heart opened wide as I hurry to read you.
    No one else seem to even get you.
    Proud words of wisdom , some to deep for the skimmers.
    They float on the surface like beginning swimmers.
    Poetic freedom is a thing to be cherished.
    Where did all the free thinking people go, I think they
    perished.

    Arms opened wide, I stand to greet you.
    My poetic muse couldn't get enough of you.
    Some take offense to my outspoken ways.
    Others only wish for the same old yesterdays.
    When poets simply entertained as if they didn't
    have a brain.
    Poets are the scribes the keepers of the secrets.
    Some will read but they won't even get this.
    Poetic freedom is a thing to be cherished.
    Where did all the free thinking people go, I think they
    perished...

    Poetry can be entertaining, but it's always nice when there is something to feed the soul as well. Flow on.

    Freedom of the soul is important... free-thinkning radicalism is how I like my flow... people too busy censoring this one and that one just beacuse they cuss and they can't see beyond that filter to see the justifiable anger in one's prose... I like this skribe, sista... gone are the days when people used to love each other for their mind and their views... the media has made it so that we value only superficial things... BRING BACK THE REAL REVOLUTIONARIES !!! Not the ones who spit dumb ish.

    One Poet, where else would I be?

    An open heart and ready smile, I came here to stay a while.
    To spit some verbs and nouns and adjectives the occasional explicative.
    If it's your shoe and you know you fitting it.
    Scribing for a cause, in the lab when we pause.
    With arms open wide to accept the fruits of this knowledge
    tree.
    I save some for you and take some for me.
    The Poets freedom is part of his destiny.
    When our words are bridled and our lips are hushed.
    Then a Poets Freedom won't mean much.
    With arms wide open and an heart opened wide.
    Here to partake of wisdom and here to impart.
    The Poets freedom is like the drum beat of the heart.
    Unyielding often revealing the inner most places of the soul.
    It's the Poet's freedom the dark forces want to control.
    When creativity dies...
    The
    Sun
    will
    no longer light the skies!
