    I dreamt of stars

    of roses
    before I was sleeping
    and as I was waking
    I was thinking
    of a pitch black sky
    full of what they never see
    because they say
    what they see
    visibly
    and even name it
    once it appears to them
    for us

    I was picturing a garden
    Full of something
    So abundant and they don't see it
    Because they say
    What they see
    when they see it
    How they see it
    As they smell it
    But no one knows of it
    For us

    I stood staring
    At my own hands
    Making my own words
    In my my own way
    In my own time
    To mix with yours
    (and yours)
    Overlapping with mine
    To give birth to whats ours
    As mothers and fathers
    Raising generations of speech
    For us

    I sipped my water
    And sat it down
    Licked my lips and closed
    My eyes
    Closed my ears
    Adjusted the contrast
    And opened my heart
    For us

    Living our lives
    Wishing upon Black stars
    And watering translucent roses
    surely and deliberately
    creating a home
    out of poetic dreams & meanings
    means we always
    have somewhere we come from
    and some place to go back to
    All for us!!!

    we have to prepare ourselves for the helping of each other...to set aside the noise, dismiss the distraction. THANK YOU for saying it.

    Baller- I don't know if anyone here really knows how much im grateful that THIS place still exists and u all are still here. I learned to speak and grew my speech here. The presence of this forum alone helps me!

    RICH- Glad you enjoyed this PEACE!

    Watzinaname- I had to show love to those that have unconditionally shown me love...and kept my room as I left it...lol

    Coco- Coco Coco Coco...Seeing you allows me to exhale. You're the sister I always wanted :)

    Clyde- Like all of us...I feel so intensely, and never keep the praise to myself. The family nurtured me so I HAD to give back.

    LOVE&RESPECT,
    DP2G
