    I have no skills
    I have no true flo
    just write what my soul tells me to

    I am not creative and no real imagination
    it just comes out that way
    hell I'm surprised too

    Inside my soul cries and screams
    it has no voice ,so my soul use me
    I am the host and I so graciously I scribe
    whatever it tells me

    I have no skills
    I have no flo
    I am merely
    flesh

    I promised the spirit
    that I will right whatever
    it puts in the soul
    and I would be the voice
    to my people

    telling my soul 's battles and torments
    joys and accomplishments
    a voice to a mute soul that endures all but can not speak words
    my soul's testimony
    So you see
    I have no skills to claim
    It is my soul that has the mastery of flo

    My soul speaks to me but not using words
    I can 't contaminate the scribes with emptiness and vulgarity
    for they are my soul words not mine

    When my soul speaks to me I must obey
    I have no skills
    no flo
    the glory belongs to my soul
    only when my soul speaks

    Ms. Poetic,

    I truly, truly, felt you here. More than you will ever know. This poem really left me in awe because often times, I have told people that I really can't write poetry...God writes on the tablet of my heart. Read
    THIS POEM. It explains just what I am talkin' bout. You will understand better...why I enjoyed your poem so much. :heart:

    Au Contraire`

    What you feel , if you will let me interject to some degree, cause
    by all that is Holy looks like SKILLS to me!
    In time you will feel at one with this blessing/curse that has us
    all addicted, obsessed and driven by verse.
    I share in your humility , but I want you to shine for your souls mute voice, gives strength to mine.
    TOGETHER WE WILL BRING THE SPOKEN AND WRITTEN WORD BACK TO IT'S RIGHTFUL PLACE AND SHINE , SHINE , SHINE!
    MUCH RESPECT
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE
