    I'm feeling inspired from BOB MARLEY you see.
    I grew up listening to the words that be.
    Truth in frame.
    In call the name of those to deliver the truth.
    Catch a fire.
    His words mean more.
    Than you could imagine.
    Feel the bare.
    Of poverty.
    Of strife and shame.
    World caring out violence using my name.
    AFRICA .

    Touching soul with his legacy.
    Rastfari Man from Jamaica tree.
    Politics was his music sense.
    Spreading love, and common sound.
    Listen feel the beat, stomp your feet.
    To ride the sky. No need to get high.
    His music wasn't shy. Stir it up.
    Concrete jungle is our natural sound.
    Spreading truth and love around.
    Do you want to wake up, stand up, move your feet.
    Bob can move the dead from the street.
    Make Jamaica your home, free to live, to call our own.
    Listen to the word of BM stir the crowd. Speaking truth.
    Speaking loud. He said we build their prisons.
    We build their schools.. but they are trying to make us fools.
    If you want to live and last. Never ever forget your past.
    Look up his legacy. Check out the site.
    Feel his wonder awesome right. LIVE ON!

    " No chains around my feet, but I'm not free I know I am bound here in captivity And I've never known happiness, and I've never known sweet caresses Still, I be always laughing like a clown Won't someone help me? Cause, sweet life, I've, I've got to pick myself from off the ground, yeah In this here concrete jungle, I say, what do you got for me now? Concrete jungle, oh, why won't you let me be now? " .....BOB MARLEY (www.bobmarley.com)

    *Tribute to you in honoring Robert Nestor Marley.

    Yeah Mon! Take a bow

    Brother Marley, Master poet

    Articulating the pain

    As well as the rage

    Of a people doomed and in mental chains

    Yes! "Enmancipate yourselves from mental slavery,

    None but ourselves can free our minds"

    Yeah Mon!

    "This morning I woke up in a curfew, oh God I was a prisoner too

    Could not recognize the faces standing over me

    They were all faces of brutality."

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Oh man, see what you got me doing [smile]

    Thanks for sharing, PEACE.
