    Dang!!!

    This joint here was tyght and i felt every single word...right down to the last one. I feel like that and my life didn't even start until it was almost the 80's...

    Your world back in the 60's brought much reality...
    But for my generation.... It brought a grave fatility...
    upon our nation for parents decided to hide the truth...
    Knowing the one day...Me the youth...
    will have to experience those hardships too...
    Your protest and quorals...have placed us in a beautiful position...
    Now our elders hate on our worldy transitions...

    We are fatal...
    In what way..for we still have it hard...
    Education is higher...
    And we all know debt starts with a credit card....

    I sit back of the streets..I'm looking out my window...
    I see traces of blood...
    The sun is the color yellow...
    AT times it looks red...
    Does that mean another young soul is dead...
    Because of the ways they lived by...
    and another mother has to cry...
    and yet we sit back in ridicule...
    When half the population have no faith in us youth...
    We all know seeing is believing...
    And right now...our earth is bleeding...
    from our past to our future...
    from elders and the youth...

    But I'm still on the look out...
    seeking what you have not found...
    completing this journey for the soldiers must go on...
    We must fix all that has gone wrong...
    and it may take years...
    and another century...
    So i'm gonna recruit more soldiers and pray...
    we make this a better world...
    Eventually....

    And those CEO's
    and street ho's
    and political debates...
    and freed slaves....
    and journey men from country to country...
    and mothers with no fathers...
    and kids with no hope...
    and alcohol and dope...
    and hate and love...
    and fire and water...
    and earth and wind...
    as we spin on this axle...
    waiting to brake...
    to tell our fate...
    through the eyes of a Street Soja!!!!

    I am loving this flow...i had to add a little something... :D

    thanks

    sha - that was a response you should have posted as a piece girl. that was great work and is one reason why i know you real

    pd - thank you, you always catch me huh, and i appreciate the love very much because you are not obligated so i know it's real

    GQ - yo i got to say the same thing to you i said to PD cause man that's feeling thank for feeling a brother it's appreciated.

    Destee - please no tears , laugh it up and listen to my favorite tracks, cause death is part of life, you can't live life without death so why worry live and be happy as you can, cause when time's up
    time's up and there's nothing nobody can do, oh maybe life support but that means you're just hanging on.

    Sorry So'ja,

    It ain't time to pull your plug, yet,
    get ready, we gonna resuscitate.
    You ain't done giving vision to blind minds,
    keep using your pen to spoon feed truth to the misinformed.
    That's not the fat lady singing, it's us calling you back to
    the stuggle, we'll help bear the weight to change our fate
    it's not too late.
    Your words are a porthole to reality, so many need to see,
    come on breathe and together we can fight to the death,
    then we'll have enternal rest, knowing we did our best.

    Mad Sistahly Love:heart:
    Your Lady St. So'ja
