    ('lo agin, dis is one a mah sonnets 'bout me gittin to know U and U gittin to know me-----li ta'arafu)

    Come walk in my environmental lands
    See the sights hear the sounds feel the breezes
    Then you'll know better why i take my stands
    As the deep tensions between us eases

    And i shall stroll with you another day
    In lovely gardens where you choose to walk
    And listen to the things you have to say
    As you leave off inhibitions and talk

    We dwell it seems in worlds so far apart
    Yet common things await for us to see
    Already the vibrations of your heart
    Are calling strongly and beckoning me

    We are truly much closer than would seem
    i want you more than just an empty dream

    يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَى وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ


    Ya ayyuha alnnasu inna khalaqnakum min thakarin waontha wajaAAalnakum shuAAooban waqabaila litaAAarafoo inna akramakum AAinda Allahi atqakum inna Allaha AAaleemun khabeerun

    49:13 O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

    Seems like a bounding of two souls no matter how distant they are physically. Beautifully phrased.

    Oh brotha Rasheed :grouphug: my heart has never felt so at ease in hearing the confessions of my fellow brotha king allowing me to know him and he me. I feel warm after this my brotha...infused with a piece/peace of mind that can only come from being "ONE" :)
