    to the world,
    and to the people.
    let me turn up,
    my speaker.
    i say to the crowd,
    voice stretching.
    it's time to move on,
    pain was needed for this blessing.
    all was lost,
    none was gained.
    but we waxed strong,
    our faith remained.
    we proceeded to the storm,
    took a rope like Buffalo Bill.
    and tamed it,
    when we sat behind the wheel.
    you still there,
    if you're not,
    i'm not tripping.
    because most of the world,
    is just shinning their teeth and glistening.
    while truth,
    is being spoke.
    and the book is looking empty,
    like Pre-Cal notes.
    step forward move on,
    you can't stay where you're at.
    you need to look beyond,
    instead of looking back.
    these are words,
    spoken daily by others.
    but you can take it either way you want,
    it doesn't matter to me one way or another.
    because i'm doing what i should,
    to do what must be done.
    and i don't care,
    if i'm the only one.
    but...........
    it would be nice,
    if someone else joined the religious force.
    that isn't too scared to spread the word,
    but hey-it's your choice.
    to the world,
    and to the people,
    let me turn up,
    my speaker,
    volume please........testing 1, 2, 3..............what you mean it wasn't on!

    Poet...this piece was cool
    I'm not sure I've seen one
    from you like this before...
    but believe your message is
    heard...

    love the perseverance, determination
    and hope in your words...

    Very inspirational work!

    The flow was put forth, someone will hear it even if it is but one lost soul. Clever vibe.
