    tripping on shoe laces from owns foot
    intent spun of spider webs of irony
    walking mighty on water that greed drank
    keepin self on mntain atop city sheeps
    the inner being praised but ignored
    scales tippin self drippin vision lost
    soul lost soul lost self never xcepted

    Daroc - There is a poignant undercurrent behind your poetry here. It demands the reader to peruse this several times to prod the thinking. Enjoyed very much your craft of words. You did good Daroc. Namyh

    very true sista brethren

    someone once told the best thing a person can do it GET OUT OF THEIR OWN WAY, it took me a minute to dwell on that then the light went on

    as your first line so eloquently puts it so perfect
