    Peace All, This was actually done to music that i wish y'all could hear because the track was just so mellow and peace. But it was a freewrite that i wrote to the track. Y'all know the power of music and that zone that you enter. I was taken there...word.



    I casted scriptures encrypted into the position of stars in the night sky
    Tossed coins of gold one by one into oceanic puddles that rained droplets to mouths that were dry
    Disattaching my spirit from all around me
    So that ropes would not bind me
    But rather be affected, affected, affected
    Affected by this change that was created when I stepped off into the vast universe
    The holiest source
    Pours
    From rains that eyes can only see once color-coded streams of paint mesh into one another,
    So are you my brother?
    Are you my sister?
    Can’t tell now since everything looks the same…
    But that’s when you see the truth
    The truth…the truth…
    Breathe in and exhale deep
    Used to Find me in the smallest corner in the back of the room where no one else wanted to be
    I used to sing myself lullabies to calm the nervous cries that seemed to emanate from within
    But that was back then
    Now I be amongst the Sun
    Shining my light into the brightness of our auras
    Singing every chorus line
    That I remember played through time
    Every line that was re-rhymed
    And played back in my mind
    Captured like freeze frame to be renamed under Back Again with smoothed out edges
    I can pledge this,
    I am 3000 stories away from being complete
    But that’s my feat
    So I continue writing to this beat
    Cuz my head seems to like the sway of the metronome
    Filling my dome
    With odds and ends
    About this world’s nothingness
    I confess
    I’m free writing into the winds that move me from them piano keys
    Feel that sway of trees
    Then press repeat
    And take this journey with me
    Into the 3rd Eye’s inner movie screens
    That’ll play every moment ever seen
    Vybin’ off of Words of Truth, Enlightenment and Peace
    That shyne down from rays of Suns that have transcended into Higher Consciousness
    Following these roads lead me to my ultimate quest
    As I take a trip down the ciphers of free thought
    I hear the melodies I sought
    Light years ago
    When I was just a young girl in India,
    My homeland
    Now I stand
    Upon a foundation
    Never lost,
    Only forgotten like a sensation
    That comes back
    Tried and true
    Just like it never went away
    I’m only blinks away
    From closing my eyes
    And seeing those monsoon rains
    Wash away everything on the plains
    It’s called Freedom y’all,
    And this is my Freedom call
