    to me
    ancestors speak
    when i sleep
    to transmit wisdom
    that runs so deep
    telling me...
    BE UNIQUE
    STOP THE SELF-DEFEAT!
    YOU'VE CRAWLED ENOUGH
    STAND ON YA FEET!...


    in my dream
    i run w/an Afrikan
    who overstands many things
    he takes my hand & explains
    i can't outrun the things i fear
    he holds me near
    whispering:
    IT'S YOUR SPIRIT
    LISTEN W/N
    I KNOW YOU HEAR...


    we fly
    wings i never knew to exist
    spread as i relax and
    release clinched fists
    the sky i approach
    coasting on winds of freedom
    in this moment i feel so @ home...

    then... THEN
    i wake up!
    dropped right back down to earth
    & i understand that to the
    day2day obstacles
    we are always prone
    and unless we tap into our spirit
    we won't overcome...

    i 2 hear the ancestors speak
    and walk with them in my sleep
    i am touch by your scribe
    as it has indeed open a window
    to our Existence and fuel
    within me the desire
    to gain our freedom to be
    nothing more then free
    Peace

    Our ancestors look upon U with total bliss.

    In reality, U run with Afrikans guiding U every step, giving U that push when U need it.

    Your mind soars with wings unseen.

    Wonderful piece.

    thank you for your poem...it took me to a Diop poem which begins:
    "listen more often to things than to beings.,,
    the fires voice is heard...hear in the wind the bush cry..
    it is the ancestors breath".....

    a really long and b eautiful piece...and your poem took me there..
    thanks...
