    From the corridors of history he emerges
    His essence is the flow that keeps us alive
    He has influenced history itself
    Because he is the passion that anoints scribes
    And causes them to write what they feel and feel what they write
    Without him
    We would die
    He is the lifeblood
    Of all who dream of wielding the pen
    He is the spirit that motivates and guides
    The force that empowers us to astound others with prose
    It is he that keeps the beat of the heart in time with our emotions
    Our hearts shall forever resound with the powerful emanations that he exudes
    For with every beat the heart opens
    And powerful imagery comes forth in word and song
    Exciting and invoking
    Stimulating and enlightening
    Putting into words the beat of the heart.

    Bishop, Alyce

    I really don't know what to say except thank you and even that is not quite it. Got a brother all choked up ova heah. The wonderful thing about poetry is you never know what part of it will affect someone and in what way.

    Peace and blessings to you both
