Im back
Not that ive ever left
but my face has been illuminated..
warmed by the sun..
My brain juices are flowing..
thoughts breaking through the barriers of suppression..
another life long lesson..
that you cant bite your tongue for no one
he who does not ask dosent get fed..
so im taking this to the Kings table..
and demanding that I get the turkeys leg..
Climbing the highest peaks..
nothing but bare hands and feet...
when i get there ima tell the **** mountain lion..
that eats.. back away from your kill...
this is my feast!
This isnt about strength..
its not about power..
its about waking up one day..
and realizing somehow;
somewhere,
your life went sour.
Taking it back can be messy..
and you may have to fight.
But its now or never..
and im ending this plight..
Back from the darkness..
walking forwards..
back into the light..
He who challenges me be weary..
and prepare for one heck of a fight..
This is my life.. my time to shine..
and you can kick rocks...
perhaps go fly a kite..:?:
As the sun warms my soul..
what had turned silver in the night..
has now turned gold!


Im back...
 
In the Spirit of Sankofa and Chocolate Trill Thunder!

And its good to have you back Poetess, that was fire, truth and strength all in one package....Peace In, PoeticManifesta...

He who challenges me be weary..
and prepare for one heck of a fight..
This is my life.. my time to shine..
and you can kick rocks...
perhaps go fly a kite..
