    [ give up a little, to live a little longer, to the ones that barely give enough to keep on living]


    :sand:

    daily asked,
    to do whatever,
    must be done.

    have you heard of fun my sistah's and brotha's.

    have you heard of it?

    constantly made to do,
    what has to be done,
    to continue.

    have you heard of leisure activities my sistah and brotha.

    have you heard of it?

    stop complaining--for time,
    will drop more on you,
    than a dump truck.

    have you heard of reality my sista and broth.

    have you heard of it?

    poetry written to calm the soul,
    the mind,
    and all in between.

    have you written any lately my sist and brot,

    have you written any?

    closing by saying,
    life ain't about playing,
    it's about surviving-maintaining-realizing-giving praise to God-living right.

    have you heard of my beautiful colored sistahz and brothaz.

    have you heard their cries through my writings.

    do you hear them calling you to hear their stories?

    listen..............

    Very nice flow.

    I imagined you reading this peace as if you were on a stage at the Opollo. :D

    You really should come into voice chat http://www.destee.com/chat/ ...and let us hear the poet of this peace read it. That way, we can put the voice with the chat name. :D

    :thanks: for sharing a piece of you with us.

    :toast:

    Your writing speaks loud and clear. Poetry can be written for many reasons, and this one makes me think and question, which is a good thing.
