    FLOW…

    When the flow stops to flow
    Then u know the drama’s gots to go…

    When the flow is slow
    And the word don’t flow
    Then u know, the drama’s got to go

    For drama is oppression
    To free expression
    And that why Im silent without a word to say,
    Its cause my flow has stopped to flow.

    And the drama consumes me like a fire quenched only
    By the waters of hypocrisy and denying who I am but in
    Reality I take the sun of dignity and righteousness and dry the waters of Babylon
    And sit and wait for the real waters of truth to flow..

    For in my heart there is a stuttering voice hesitating to tell me what my itching ears
    Don’t want to hear…

    For its been a long time since my conscious has suckled from the breast of human
    Kindness. I do not seek originality or want to be miss personality, if only I can copy
    Your humility, imitate your compassion, memorise your wisdom and feed on your courage maybe I again can start to flow and let the drama go..

    seated on the banks of serenity...watching drama flow, silently, away. feeling stress pour out onto the beach of yesterday's life...knowing that tomorrow's sun will shine bright.

    WELCOME HOME, my sistah.:)

    let the river flow
