    Continue marching So'ja
    Thru the channels of black time.
    We hear thru out the jungle
    The beat of all your rhymes.

    You scribe of black present,
    The juxtaposes of black destiny.
    Your pen flows a pain in words,
    Of things that seek to oppress me.

    I have noticed and beheld
    Foot prints of ink on trails.
    They lead me to a street corner,
    Where a poet writes of frails.

    His tablet is of stone
    And at times...he has stood alone.
    Yet still I do admire,
    The flames of his poetic fire.

    His lines burn with reality
    Of the pains I have inside of me.
    This is my tribute to him...my brotha.
    A standing ovation to Da Street So'ja.:)

    So'ja,

    Continue to make us think bro...no matter how deep you get sometimes...I'll strive to stay above the "surface".

    Thanks :spin: Joyce

    Thanks for the read Brotherman. Sorry for not gettin' back wit yall.

    Alyce:I have always admire eccentric poets. They scribe with boldness that few of us are willing to do. They make you think when you would rather not think. We need mo of em' Alyce.
