    With a capacity for complacency
    a combatant seeks
    protection from
    soothing breezes and
    sun-warming
    altitudes
    that move stale winds
    between
    ten fingers
    Palms held upward
    world-weary lines
    find forgiveness
    inside of veins
    Restoration flourishes
    then nourishes
    to the roots
    cleansing from within

    I see parallels between
    myself and thee

    and from this earth I cry
    prayers of longevity
    I release my worries
    from finger tips
    and parted lips
    these arms
    are opened wide
    taking in
    all that He has
    given me

    For my praises --
    He
    is worthy
    for His love
    has made
    me more than just
    an ordinary tree
    -- an extra ordinary
    living thing
    Now and forevermore
    I will live and die with
    my hands against the sky

    YOU 'RERIGHT HONEY READ THIS BUT DIDN'T REPLY I'M LOSING IT FOR REAL

    THIS WAS REALY NICE IT FLOWED PERFECT FOR REAL

    mud adheres to my shoes but love steers me to the blues, like college and university got knowledge and I'm thirsty // well MADD show some love to the poets, glad to hun this thug know it girl i been criticize but in the end i recognize there are blue skies and true lies // my hands against the sky now I understands what it's like to fly like birds in herds my thoughts wing and many times caught wearing hot bling-e-bling not a ding-a-ling but try to do my thing
