the things you miss during your absence. my apologies for my tardiness.

THANK YOU, good friend TotalView. a wonderful day it was...which would have been made even better had i saw these special words on that day. THANK YOU.

Destee...we have come a long way. and, yet, our journey has "...only just begun." THANK YOU.


My Season Has Come
I have grown…maturely
I have matured…gracefully
I have seen the lack of respect
In how the young ones act
And reacted…distastefully
~ My apology ~
I have grown in my views
Viewed many things…old and new
I have given opinions where opinions weren’t wanted
I have explored the soul of the blues
~ Give me Jazz everyday ~
I have grown more patient
Patiently, I have waited
…For hopes and dreams
To realize their plane of existence isn’t fated
In a reality unlike mine
So, I decline the offer
To be demure in my proffer
Of day-after-day
When my rhyme-scheme says
It’s time for the laughter…to start
The seasons have blossomed
My petal stands true…and tall
No wilting wane, or waning limbs
To stem the tide of my daily whims
My season has come
I am
O
N
E
With me

talk about being late for your own party.:(

but, as they say, memory is the first to go.:)

thank you for remembering, my friend. October 13th went very well, indeed.

i sit here, looking out onto a sea of whiteness, thinking, "the shovel is still waiting.":)

Thank you, my sister of the word flow. i'm happy that the years keep on coming...and hope they never stop...at least, not 'til five score plus ten--i'm a sucker for torture, what can i say.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
