    hey world out there,
    staring from beneath my glass.
    can you see me,
    feel me,
    or can you barely touch me.


    plz!!!!!!!!!!!

    you only can see so deep,
    and i give it to you,
    cuz that's all,
    that you can see.
    and i ain't hatin' you,
    just wanna see what you see,
    the outside of me,
    cuz i know what's on the inside.


    but..................................


    you don't!

    man what's up with that,
    one love,
    one rhythm,
    one soul,
    one God,
    one rap,
    all black.
    that's me to the fullest,
    that's me all around.
    i'm the shadow,
    i'm the wind.
    i give depth,
    to the sound.

    but....................

    you're still trying to see beneath,
    my glass.
    and i'm trying to break it,
    cuz i want you to see the real me.
    so i can be :new: and be able to love me,
    the way i wanna be loved.
    and the music in the air,
    is rocking me back and forth in the wind.
    smooth,
    calm,
    oh so beautiful.....
    oh sorry,
    i got caught up in the moment. :sand:
    so back to reality,
    where there's no gravity.
    but my personality,
    and the whole worlds mad at me.
    cuz i did the one thing,
    they thought i could never do.



    i broke through....................................

    to the next level of change,
    rasheed dropped a nice piece on the reason for names.
    and i ain't afraid of change,
    cuz it'll happen sooner or later.

    but i ain't trying to :teach:
    just trying to get my :sleep:
    cuz new and higher heights are what i'm trying to reach.
    where the stars do this :spinstar: and everybody ain't staring at it,
    like they staring at me.


    but...........


    nobody is willing to see...................(sigh)

    I'm allowed myself to drink of your poetry once again and oh how refreshing it was...even as I meditate on the oilwells and diamonds...in my soul. I felt your spirit...rocking me back and forth in your wind.

    Oh, lil sister...

    how we do see and feel...

    through this unbelievable flow...

    the journey to self...is a winding one

    sit back and enjoy the ride...

    Breaking free to be who you are, those who choose to see will, those who don't, their loss. I like where you took this poem.
