    The rain paints my sky with a gray beyond compare
    Sombre moods descends unexpectedly and turns into despair.
    The end of the world is here.


    The rain drops, like bullets from the Evil One's own emissaries hit without cease
    Weighing me down wherever I run, no refuge and no peace.

    I spot her her amidst the rain of bullets and monochrome entities
    Her smile is a broken one, carrying all black women's burdens desperately.

    Bleeding my tears of contention with life and its faux serendipities,
    I stand transfixed as she reminds me that I am the original - and they just mimic me.

    She whispers to me from afar, her 2000 year old sadness grimacing her lips and face
    Her voice quaking with the anger of a million unborn from a long forgotten place.

    Her sullen whisper, her eyes that seem as if they have seen a future that only promises tragedy.
    Her quiet volcanic vibration shakes me so bad my words can rhyme no more... my hip is without my hop, and my rhythm has no poetry.

    Her words breathe a different life into me, and I am relieved of my consciousness.

    Upon waking, all that is left is an endless sky and the notion that I am not the same.
    My third eye is apparently open, for I see spirits soaring the sky. I am not surprised. My hand rests upon the breasts I never had, and my round thighs will not allow me to stand.

    I crawl into another landscape of gloomy architecture, buildings with glass and concrete, people with no humanity and rain like bullets that pierce the soul.
    Here there is no sound of people, no children playing. I hear no drums, I cannot hear my ancestors here! Desperation. What place have I gone to, what misfortune have I wrought on myself to bring me here?!

    I stand, but I am not whole. My past is not here, my life does not belong here.

    All around are pale bags of flesh that do nothing but consume and cause waste. I am somehow aware of my lifelong sin, and being placed here is the sentence that has been passed on me.

    So apathy ensues, nothing of value remains here. I can laugh and smile at my own folly, but with my knowledge of self it is but a broken smile.
    I stand so transfixed, for how long I do not know. I am a ghost, a remnant of the people devoured by the Pale Beast. And we clung to the Pale Beast, yes we did. Everything is meant to be broken.

    Everything is meant to be... broken, until I see him. He who does not know he is me, he - the Black Light. The Darkness given to us by the Bodiless Intelligence for us to rest in.

    Finally he approaches me, staggers in my direction with a million holes in his confused soul. And my longing and love for him, my anger, frustration and my disappointment with him all gather in my lips as I proceed to speak.

    My voice is not as it used to be, dialects of foreigners and physical violations has left my vocal chords scarred and without much of its glory and pride. It no longer commands respect.

    I threw my words at him, the Spirit of my Foremothers....
    I gave him what was left after they stole from us.

    He did not see my tears as I ascended and left him with directions to his past life.

    "Go back to the future with me...

    Beyond beyond, before when I was who I was when the thought of what was wasn't what it has become, but a true representation of what it will be when it's done"

    Going back to beyond what one can even fathom, yet somehow we know must have existed... You took us on such a dynamic journey, beyond time...I'll have to get back to this one later to add more, but this was awesome.
