    I discovered my new home(every1 please read cause you were home when I got there)

    Someone broke into my house
    a few weeks back and vandalized
    what I held dear to me...so I moved
    I came across this house that
    had a neon light "DESTEE" "DESTEE"
    it read /
    curiosity or maybe I was nosy led
    me to investigate
    as I drew near I could smell
    ink on the air and hear people
    discussing things from politics
    to revolution I stopped
    at the window to peek inside but to
    no avail the windows were steamed
    so I entered...

    I found family!

    Destee was blessing the mic
    and Street So'ja was passing
    around upliftment info to his
    peeps N2urSoul was beating her
    lover's brownie pie batter
    in the back and $$RICH$$, baller,
    Bishop, and Yeshujah was playing
    spades GQlive and GASunshyne
    were breaking down some Saul Williams
    work or was it Langston? MAybe Jessica
    Care Moore?
    Amun-Ra was breaking down kemetic
    origins of the alphabet to dnommo,
    nubianlover, Jam and J'hiah and there
    she was Afridancr spinning and dancing and
    laughing and smiling and reciting all
    at the same time. StarGoddess was being her
    ususal self enlightening everyone with her
    scribes and Alyce told me there was some collard
    greens on the table and I better stop
    socializing or a brother may starve.
    On the way I saw kemetstry and asked "how you
    get that fly *** name?" kemetstry replied
    "My name, what about 8th Wonder's?" I said point
    taken and asked 8th, so how does it feel
    to be a wonder of the world? cause I'm just
    a blak man in action, a "blakverb" trying
    to write 'til my brain goes dry. Then I see
    too faces I don't recall Nita and honeyluv
    Wow!, but they're family members so I say
    "what's up cousins."

    and all the while this was taking place
    we all recited our vibes and all felt each one
    at the same time / and knew that it's good
    to home again!

    blakverb off the top thinking

    *I love all ya'lls vibes - the are with me always
