    for my friend. Out in the Wilderness, strugglin'.

    Do you know what's going on, like Brother Marvin says?
    are you stuck in a rut, steadily ignoring the new day?
    Look around, there's a race to get through to your mind,
    It's tough to help those that choose to remain 'blind.'
    Unlike some others, I'll always make the time,
    to help you out, because you're a lost friend of mine.

    Like brothers, we started out little fellas with the same dreams,
    to get big, chase skirts, and escape the stalemating schemes.
    But one of us fell to the wayside, stuck in Neutral,
    tell me, if I did, would you save me from being a fool?
    I hope so, so don't take this as trying to test your manhood,
    I'm only trying to pick you up, to show you all that's good.

    There is no Cain and Abel between you and I,
    I got much love for you dog, until the day I die.
    I won't tell you what you want, I'll tell you what you need to hear,
    the 'whale' will swallow you, watch out, it knows what you fear.
    The same, it fears the truth, as it will bring about the Light,
    to pierce the crust from your 'third eye,' restoring your true Sight.

    Peace

    "...I won't tell you what you want, I'll tell you what you need to hear"

    Brother I was just telling someone that exact thing. A lot of people feed into "what people want to hear" as opposed to being honest with them and "keeping it real". If more people offered the truth as opposed to trying not to hurt feelings, people would be a lot better off. I appreciate all that you said in this piece brother. Keep scribing and "...keep the crust off your third eye". Much respect.

    Greetings, my brothas and sistas out there...
    glad that you appreciate my thoughts,
    I am lucky to have found this forum,
    my wife presses me to write, to share in my expressions,
    but with all my deployments, I have had little time,
    hopefully I will be able to drop more to get honest opinions.
    Poems are great, and one day I wouldn't mind publishing them
    hopefully to make someone else's day better, either by brightening it and show that sometimes all is not what it seems, and to be grateful for what they got...

    peace
