    What one person feels that love is, can be worlds apart from what the next person feels. And when that is the case, I can see why it would be deferred, indefinitely. Definitely, posed on point.

    Your words describe the void I see separating Black people from their oppressors. We lack the security produced and maintained by true community. We do not treat one another as other civilized nationalities treat each other. We've lost our once deserved attributes: Truth, the Loyalty of Brotherhood, and numerous principles and codes of conduct worthy of the righteous rewards of freedom and independence of both Thought and Action. "Where I give you all of me," an open declaration that I want for my brother what I want for myself. And you being worthy of my dedication, are justly "[t]reat[ed] ... like royalty," because you live according to a moral code developed from within our community.

    Hi Brother DSS
    The beat is awesome
    I was reading your words
    with the rhythm that added
    to the tempo of your heart felt flow
    And the sigh it place on my heart
    to feel just how deep you are reaching
    to show and share a open love..much love poet
    Very awesome drop

    Peace~N~Love

    thank you poets

    thank you asimplepoet

    you are so right sista Watz

    One9-arch you are very spiritual you saw this from the core, you didn't see this
    from man-woman, more from the spiritual man and woman, thanks for picking that up and everything you said was right inline with my thought here
    this is not just man and woman but all PEOPLE, this crazy mutated set up we live in now is killing us, killing our spirit, there has to be more than this right?

    thank you so much Desert Storm you are very much appreciated

    Bluewater thanks so much for feeling me and this is even deeper then what you've read

    thanks again

    peace and what up, solja...

    excellent wordplay. forgive my disappearance. i've been gearing up for travelling. i'll be in GA, IN, NY (in April), TX (in May), and CA (for the summer). by the time i get to NY, my cd project should be done. i anticipate giving you a copy. this write took me back to the old Harlem Rennaissance genius LAngston Hughes, A Dream Deferred, perhaps this was your inspiration, true? if so, we are truly like-minds. real scribes live on!
