    My heart bleeds for my race, my heart bleeds for the innocent person whose DA just lost their case.

    My heart bleeds for all of my people who are stressed and so mind tired my heart bleeds for lady who just got fired because of downsizing and system optimizing.

    My heart bleeds for the child that has to go hungry, my heart bleeds for the war-vet that is homeless and lonely.

    My heart bleeds for the woman killed and raped in a racist hate crime, my heart bleeds for the one with a bigamist mind.

    My heart bleeds, bleeds, bleeds and I’m almost anemic.

    And my people wonder I’m a cynic.

    John 14:27
    "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

    Colossians 3:12
    So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

    i send these to you for your scribe speaks so much to what these verses say. i thank you for such a wonderful insight into the heart that beats in you and bleeds for those who maqy believe no one cares....

    peace be with you covered in many blessings of GOD today,

    Poet!

    I hope we, the conscious people, NEVER become desensitized, in order that we can ALWAYS stand ready to MOBILIZE!

    Speak!

    MISS....

    FROM ABOVE I FEEL YO WISDOM OF KNOWLEDGE
    SPOKEN IN BROKEN TONGUE WHICH MY HEART
    DRIP THE SAME BLOOD OF MY SAVIOR
    ITS A CONTINUED FIGHT IN THE WORLD TODAY
    ITS LIKE RAZOR SHARP CUTTING AT MY SOUL
    I BLEED WIT YA DAILY
    I CRY THE BLOOD STAIN TEARS
    EMBRACING MY SISTHA'S AND BRUTHAS
    WE BOND
    OUR BATTLES LOST YET WE WILL WIN THE WAR!
    AS DNOMMO SAID : WITH THE MOST GRACEFUL
    WORDS ......AND REMEMBER TOGETHER WE STAND.
