    Heaven and Hell
    Both we oppose

    Yin and yang
    Does that I know

    Emperors
    Often wear no clothes

    What the hell
    Do peasants know?

    Multitudes
    Want to rule the world

    Boys and girls
    Are worlds apart...

    Wizardry ~
    Usurps what is God's

    Black and White
    Gray matter flawed

    Sometimes our thinking is just plain flawed, but I guess when all we see are like thinkers, it doesn't appear to be wrong. Your pen always has flair.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!




    1poetsought,

    Got me digging deep! No alternative but to bring a treasure excerpt from the Color of the Cross thread, page 73, #728:

    The Emperor’s New Clothes

    A little learning is a dangerous thing:
    Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
    There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
    And drinking largely sobers us again.

    -Alexander Pope



    Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU)

    We Afro-Americans feel receptive toward all peoples of good will
    We are not opposed to multi-ethnic associations in any walk of life
    In fact, we have had experiences which enable us to understand
    How unfortunate it is that human beings have been set apart
    Or aside from each other because of characteristics known
    As “racial” characteristics.

    -Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik el Shabazz)

    the confines of a polar universe

    the pull
    the push
    the rain
    the sunshine
    the body
    the soul
    the life
    the death

    peace man

    feelin' yo stuff bro. 1P

    polarity and similarity - the sun shines on them both.
    i love the dual nature of this one- it's all purpose by design in order to align.
