    Come on Poet
    These happenings are bloody insane
    Give us some words
    To help us to explain
    Just how we got here
    At this enslaved point again
    Umberella words
    To get us out this rain
    Raining acid raining steel
    Bringing us pain
    We're trying to think
    But all attempts are in vain
    With the enemy concepts
    Coursing through our brain
    Making it difficult
    To elude the slaver's net and chain
    Come on poet
    Offer up some saving refrain
    To help us move back
    Into our saving lane
    You've got the gift
    Don't leave us here inane
    Lay the words on us
    To help us keep sound and sane

    Are you calling us poets out so to speak Rasheed?

    The state of this world
    I cannot lie and say
    I have any of the answers
    for the chaos of today
    The one inkling I do have
    that might bring a glimmer of hope
    is for us to take care of our own house.
    Initiate an inspection of every scope
    brainstorm and incorporate a renewal
    in ourselves. Ask difficult questions,
    conduct a plan of self action.
    I'm all for collective suggestions
    but until we clean up our own act,
    We cannot audition for a role
    in somebody else's play.
    That's all I have to say.....

    I think it's really simple,
    too simple to be true...
    but the answer you are seeking,
    lies in me and you.
    God gave us the power,
    to rule over this earth...
    but we have yet to rule ourselves,
    or manifest our worth.
    Collective goals, collective thoughts,
    as one sounds mighty fine,
    but this will never happen
    till we learn to free our minds.

    glad ya came
    yeah i'm calling poets out in the righteous name
    it's high noon
    the dish done ran away with the spoon
    with both the sun and full moon
    up in the sky
    the universe has started to cry
    and the question prevailing is why
    the devil's hole card is face up
    we can see the victory cup
    calling poets out
    there is no doubt
    i'm seeking collaboration
    to shed more light on the situation
    calling for words from sharp minds to snap
    show us the way past this modern trap
    the ingredient you added brought some how
    and we cannot even stop now..................
    read this and join us poet
    bring the word as you know it

    we battle the struggle
    wit open mind
    forget the fight
    tyme after tyme
    fall into da shame
    name blame and cross
    da journey tossing lies
    setting up self destruction
    inside the man's connection
    to master our faith & guide
    taking us for da long ride
    but tyme we stand in unite
    flash da unity in our
    community
    pull our power wit goodness
    and not the ruler of insanity
    but the sane of life we claim
    so come on poet's flow
    let da world know
    passing da sho as da wind blowz

    WAKE UP

    We've got to become soul donors.
    To get ourselves out of this corner.
    We need to turn things around.
    And pick our hearts up off the ground.
    It's time for us to congregate.
    And devote some time to penetrate.
    The source of our mis-direction,of where to stop the destroying of affection.
    It's in the minds of many and in a destructive phase of plenty.
    To shut your awareness down,keeping you blind to what's happening now.
    Only you can be the power to withstand.
    To bring a forceful stop to such plan.
    On that bandwagon of self-preservation.
    Is no solution to the situation.
    Without true leaders of the child.
    Do you really think your babies will survive.
    How can you not see,what is happening to us.
    In our minds we've lost all thoughts of trust.
    Are our hearts so filled with anger and hate.
    That we've taken the road of give up,it's too late.
    Why let world-wide evil turn you into non-believers.
    You can easily see hate spreading like a forever lasting shower.
    And people are being used as instruments for power.
    Listen, without togetherness, of all our minds.
    The disappearance of the human race is just a matter of time.
    So it's best we pull out the human within ourselves.
    Or you can forget about any generation being left.

    The challenge was great I enjoyed the rush
    BE SAFE

    reply to RASHEED

    These happenings are bloody insane
    All watch and laugh while its totally plain
    Actions speak louder then some poets words
    Specially when humans run in sheep herds
    Leaders from among the flock try to explain
    But all that they say ; they say in bloody vain
    How we got here I could tell all of you
    But I’d only be speaking till black and blue
    Where have I heard this enslaved point again
    Perhaps it was in now us and them then!
    Umbrella words wont protect us from sin!
    So be strong and take it on your black chin!

    THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT POEM!

    i am about spreading love
    sharing knowledge and building up
    following the foot steps of my ancestors
    to carry on the struggle of us
    not trying to seem weak
    that is the path walked by my two feet
    no matter what trail we roam
    in the end it carries us home
    so trying to lift us up
    not trying to tear us down
    because we have been played so many times
    by the others even the ones of our colors
    so hope is what i have
    and faith is what have helped us last
    to make away for our seeds
    to live in peace and harmony
    Peace
    BlueWater:heart:
