    So'ja!! You are a power brotha

    This piece has flooded my mental with a tidal wave of thoughts. Very POWERFUL!! When I think of what black men have been through and what they still continue to go through, makes my heart weep. I can't begin to understand the emotions they must feel. Most of the time they keep them bottled up inside like a timebomb, where it ticks it's countdown. I may not understand completely, however I do feel their pain. My poem War On The Black Man was my attempt to ask, Why? Only God knows the answer and I have faith that he'll make it apparent to us all some day. There are a lot of great poetry posted here, but none intrigue me more than the poetry of you and my other brothas has. For its through your poetry that I gain some understand of what my brothas are feeling. I thank you so much for sharing this. It has left a lasting imprint in my mind. I apologize for the long reply, but I was feeling this poem to the up most!

    I salute a true Street So'ja.

    this was a powerful piece!... the passion you
    used to express yourself, simply poured from
    the page & now resides in the mental of every

    thank You!!... for letting me be one of the
    fortunate few!! :)

    AlwaysLove.
