    My intent is well minded
    If it's bought and sold
    You'll never find it

    Some KNOW I show love
    Some think I'm bugged
    And those born before 1970
    Don't know what I'm speaking of

    "you" burn me by fire meaning you've committed arson
    and I'll resort back to the oxygen, hydrogen and carbon
    my state before elements combine

    It's not a death wish
    I just comfortable knowing my life is not infinite
    Jehovah never witnessed it
    What no one gets
    Is life is supposed to be experienced

    Not lived through the stretches of times
    Then you would be a GOD of another kind

    Can't accept we are ALL mortals
    Running thru the time portal
    Oh how awful

    Listen "you", accept life for what it is
    Born to die, just as the grandparents as well as the kids
    All the ills of nature now which you are trying to rid
    And the truths of nature shall stay hid

    It's called BALANCE
    Nature's own measuring stick
    To keep things legit
    Something got to die
    So something can live
    And that's the way it is

    So keep the experiments
    And the organic and biological changes
    "you" have us headed for danger

    and all "your" wishes will turn fruitless
    in the World of Mutants

    "you" stop hating yourself
    and everyone else
    stop searching for MARS
    and try to better where WE ARE
    right here
    right now

    aaah...

    enlightenment.

    and, for those born before 1970, i forgive you.

    you are my sistah, though young
    and your wisdom shines through
    that throng of sweet innocense
    i know surrounds you
    you speak from the streets
    that's good and all that
    showing love toward family
    even this old hat
    just thought i would tell you
    from the pre-70's crew
    we lived it
    and loved it
    then taught it
    to you.

    JUST SO YOU KNOW.:)

    peace&muchlove

    Wisdom is wisdom
    and this poem speaks of deep thought
    especially for those of you born after 1970
