    {THERE ARE MANY OF YOU THAT I MISSED...BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IT WOULD END UP LIKE THIS...LONG. ANYWAY, I GOTS NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR ALL THE PLAYGROUND CREW...AND DESTEE, TOO.}

    i love women
    I LOVE WOMEN
    i love you
    but whatever happened to women who flirt with you
    who made you feel like a man...even when you acted like a boy

    what happened to
    "I LOVE YOU"
    and...

    WHAT HAPPENED?

    what happened to REAL PEOPLE
    like Blak Verb and Amun Ra

    what about Afridancr and Alyce
    as love flows
    N2urSoul
    and everyone knows
    the beep beep
    of a Heartbeat
    as liviti
    sit on the steps with
    twofish
    talking about the itch
    that MAN and WOMAN
    have
    that they have
    that i have.:(

    why aren't the innocent illuminations
    of Hunter
    contagious
    why aren't we infected
    with the aura
    that encapsulates her

    {what happened to the TRUTHS
    of Aminata
    what happened to her father
    what happened?}

    why aren't there more $$RICH$$ folk
    who don't smoke but loves to joke
    ...who have family and friends who light up the world
    with their beacons of HOPE.
    ...watching over the less fortunate
    from light houses and celestial gardens

    the TRUTH, they say, will set us free
    but most of us are too blind to see
    that TRUTH is coated in different hues

    one for me

    another for you

    TRUE

    why are we exacting
    Maplextract
    from honey vines
    while trying
    to gain knowledge of
    J'hiah
    who just wants to keep it real
    but REAL
    ain't the word
    in the middle of the streets

    so,
    THE FATHER sent us a So'ja
    to protect the streets
    and cocobutterskyns
    to join here with me
    a most lucious woman
    in msluciousb
    and there are others
    in Destee's crew
    Epiphany
    Desert Storm
    to name a few
    GASunshyne
    bringing warmth and more
    absorbed by
    UbZoRbShUn
    as she steps out the door

    what happened to the sounds
    that define who we are
    MADDRAPPER set the tone
    but will we help him to go far

    do we support what's ours
    in its early beginnings
    ...show love for a brutha
    without scheming and grinning

    do we?

    in these hallowed halls of Destee's home
    are we ONE-FOR-ALL
    or, in a crowd, alone

    will dnommo return from the garden
    ...strong
    rejuvenated with love
    or infested by wrongs

    hmmm

    Hunter was deep in her
    Vagina Chronicles
    when Balla discovered
    that MsDliteful is quite a mouthful
    five feet ten and caramel tone
    melodic voice and a lucious moan

    ummm

    feel me
    do you really?

    coz there's a quaking
    in the nation
    and a storming in the Desert
    we haven't experienced before
    spoken of
    ...prophesized
    by Prophet2

    you know

    Sistah Joyce stood up
    and took the podium:
    "we're living in the days
    of my FATHER'S
    last days
    for this system"
    she said

    "really"
    cried Kitana
    as she knelt beside
    Aminata
    who said
    "Don't worry, sistahgurl
    wherever the river go(eth)
    we shall flow(eth)

    Balla sat by the river's edge
    ...under the old, oak tree
    watching the river's flow
    ...seeing what he could see

    THE TRUTH

    as recorded in the bound volumes of
    The Ivory Starr Collection
    Volume 6
    Chapter 3

    you feel me now?

    MUCH LOVE TO THE FAMILY.

    I used to write love
    poems and talked
    about when a man
    loved a woman and
    how I loved when my
    imigination was licked
    my pearl stimulated
    giving good head yeah
    you heard what I said

    I used to flow about bottom
    lyps and hip jerks Mars deep
    in Venus waters
    thick dingo head warriors
    parting dense jungle curls
    toe sucks and nipple licks
    ummm I remember when I even
    said the word dick.....

    I remember
    how it used to be no holds bared
    but with class, I never thought I have
    to scribe a piece telling someone to
    kiss my ***... because they couldn't
    deal with me, with my sexuality, with
    who I be yeah I remember when I first
    came in and the flava was so thyck

    I ain't gone lie that I have changed since
    my Nappy Transition crossin back over has
    left my dome wide open and I see things in
    a different lite I gets a different vibe but I'm
    still me

    I still be UbZoRbShUn talkin bout this and dat
    I be here probably not in full capacity
    I love hangin on Destee cause I know its
    100 purecent guaranteed... ain't no place
    I'd rather be

    Preciate the roll call Baller cause I was just thinkin the same thing while I was washing the clothes. I love you like ma play cousin and that's real.

    Oh so...

    ...deep Baller, that I
    was as entranced as
    always, when I read you.
    Love is always due you.
    You personify the phrase,
    'a poet true'
    and you know, I wouldn't be
    surprised if you amazed, even,
    yourself sometimes,
    with the way you verbalize.
    *Incredible, sincerely*
