    As our country is prepared to launch an attack into Iraq at any given time, I would like for us to take a minute to say a prayer for those of our natural families or our Destee Family that will be involved...We know of Kimdricka, and GQ who will be part of this confrontattion...Is Desert Storm involved in this? Please say a prayer to whatever deity you worship....However you think you can get a prayer through, do it. If there's any special person, you would like to solicit a prayer for please shout the name out.

    Also if you would like to compose a piece dedicated to our destee family members involved in the war you can put it here. I do know Kimdricka is still able to see the forum, not sure about the others, but I sure they would love to receive this letter from home.

    Destee I know that this is not a poem, but I felt that it was pertinent to do this because some of our poets are involved...

    So Speaketh the Bishop

    Queen Of Hearts (4 Kimdricka and GQ)

    True story...walking home from school with three other firstgrade girls..a pair of four of which two were my enemies among friends...led me behind a CHURCH and beat me...didn't know why...the fourth girl stood as a witness and didn't help defend me...she simply asked me why didn't I help defend myself...didn't know why I turned the other cheek...but months roll by...mom decides one afternoon to give me a ride home from school...the sun was very hot...and walking were my two enemies among friends...hadn't seen them in a while must have been hiding in their shame of sin...told my mom to pull over...to offer a ride to my enemies among friends...she knew not of this...as they thankfully hopped in...their faces were filled with fear...sitting erect yet I'm cool, calm, and collect as a cucumber...finally they reach their stop...without hesitating they hopped out...my mom in the driving seat...me still in the passenger seat...I finally reveal to her...those were my two enemies among friends...she was quite angry and couldn't comprehend...it wasn't until years later that I understood why Jesus said,"love your enemies"...making friends among your enemies brings peace and prosperity....you will never have to worry about them again...but an enemy among friends will always be your enemy...learn how to make friends among your enemies...it can turn out to be quite helpful in the end...

    Black men go
    abroad in the military
    like marines far from
    their sweethearts

    cast away on a day
    with Valentines to
    lovers quarrel amidst
    war a form of art

    they call me the
    queen of hearts

    because I'm rich with
    love and understanding
    yet poor in the things
    that won't really matter
    once I leave the
    planet earth

    been dedicated since
    birth to say what I feel
    when life gets real at
    multiple times of its worst

    no need to rehearse
    this thought flow process
    unfolds verse by verse

    simply hold
    my hand and understand
    why angels have brought me
    here for what it's worth

    they call me the
    queen of hearts

    lay your head
    on my heart
    and listen

    spreading God's love
    from above with cheer
    is my infinite passion
    leading and guiding me
    on different missions

    there's no need for repetition
    in stating my position

    they call me
    the queen of hearts

    come fly away
    with me to ectasy
    the world we're living in
    is tearing our people apart

    ever since the days
    of Abe and his
    Emancipation Proclamation
    now more than four
    scores ago today

    don't even start

    brother if you ever
    feel the need to cry
    come lie here on my shoulder

    they call me
    the queen of hearts

    Concept Of Queen Of Hearts

    Some people need me to break the concept of Queen Of Hearts down even further because like my mother in the story. They still don't comprehend its underlying meaning. How does love conquer all? Love conquers all through timing and effectiveness. If you take the timing and effectiveness of the situation into consideration, then your plan is powerful enough to defeat your enemies/opponents. In a deck of 52 cards, you have the spades, diamonds, hearts, and clubs of which kings/queens make up a pair of four. President Bush with the power of our military is the king of spades. Spades cuts diamonds, hearts, and clubs. Saddam Hussein with the power of his wealth is the king of diamonds. Paper covers rock or in other words money defeats power and influence. Osama Bin Laden with the power of his convictions is the king of clubs. Clubs can't really do anything except ridicule others and save face because they are cowards. Jesus with the power of his love and understanding is the king of hearts. Hearts can't really do anything either except call one's bluff through strategy. This is why Jesus is the king of all earthly kings. According to him, wisdom is more precious than silver and gold. If you play your cards right, then it's possible for anyone to win but the Lord usually has the last and final say in the end. His great works of love lives and reigns through each one of us. This poem is entitled "Queen Of Hearts" because I am a woman delivering a message on his behalf.

    Bishop, you are 1 in a million. Thank you.

    Everyone, i really appreciate your thoughts and prayers. they mean more than you know right now. What's happening over in Iraq hasn't yet directly effected me. I'm still here in Korea tryna keep peace between the north and south. Yet and still, things are getting pretty tense around here and it's keeping me a lot more busy than normal. but all in the same, your prayers and thoughts are what keep us going so please continue to do so and hope for a quick end to this mess that we're in. Thanks again and God bless you all.

    This is my prayer for protecton over all who are involved and over all of humanity.
    We think we cannot change these ways...BUT WE CAN!
    We think we have no influence...BUT WE DO!

    Merely focusing on LIGHT and LOVE will HEAL and PROTECT, but we must have FAITH and BELIEVE we are capable of these THINGS!

    Do we really OVERstand what it means to be a BELIEVER?

    I have FAITH in all of my people that we WILL make the CORRECT decision, let it be your MISSON!

    1love to all and May LIGHT Protect US!!!
