    As a child, knowing rights and wrongs
    of the planets and having a great affinity
    with afrikans and feeling their pain and yet no gain
    and wondering .. why why why, where is the justice ?
    A child talking to something much greater than me
    and told patience patience ..your time will come
    a child watching the clouds and knowing they speak to thee
    hopeful and expectant and sometimes impatient ..... waiting ...
    and yet eye Be

    A young woman, naive in many respects
    holding such aspirations for man, disillusion is what one begets
    How can one be so wrong, when my knowing tells me differently
    the trails of life is pure tribulation
    our mentality stops at a point of stagnation
    and so we fester not knowing of our distractions
    and believe in the song, that you are so wrong
    And yet, eye Be

    Upon reaching an age where one listens to self
    the same self which you ducked, dived, avoided and hide
    from
    the same tells who tells of who you Be
    the same self who will set you free of your misery
    embrace me,
    so we can be whole and free
    and Be what you Be

    Then suddenly one day we were up close and personal
    very personal .. in my face, toe to toe
    No where to run, no where to hide, no one but you and me
    and what did I see
    I saw the props I used to get rid of thee
    I saw the illusion called fear .. and it was me
    a powerful inner being that's to make us all see
    My long awaiting has been my destiny
    and still eye Be

    Sloughing off the debris of the old me
    and stretch my arms wide, yet tentatively
    to see and embrace such wonders are quite beyond
    the scope of the human mind ..
    how to find the words to describe such greatness and potentiality
    knowing all along that this was meant to be
    Amazed and yet stunned that unknown brothers be breaking all bonds
    to set me free

    Thank you. Thank you.
    Eye breathe, embrace and integrate
    and know
    EYE BE WHO EYE BE
    as we rise and transform our entire destiny

    peace

    Reading these lines I felt like I was climbing up a ladder with you, reaching such great heights. So wonderfully expressed, well done.
