    I see a thousand things that I could be
    or which society infringes upon me
    but through it all I remain untainted, unstained.
    A mystery but so simplistically realistic
    I see others stroll by as if on a mental high...
    far away from the ground they fly
    I wonder why
    so many cannot tolerate the chains that sustain us on this plane...
    why we escape to the place where the Etheric reigns...
    Enduring pains upon pains and savage games
    where despicable beings gain off of our grief
    in disbelief sometimes while I'm tryin to stay alive.
    I just write a rhyme to kill the whispers in my ear that combine my own fears with the fears of the world and I hear nothin
    but the pitiful cries of my ancestors...
    shining from heaven, sendin blessings down to provide
    the sustenance I need to go on in pride...

    I know in time the reflection will be here

    I know in time the mystery will re-appear

    I know in time the legacy will unwind

    but until then I'm gone be chillin with a nickel or dime
    releasing my mind stresses
    feelin the God connection
    preachin the life lessons
    street questions
    the undeniable message
    that though we see the hell
    and think we feel it closin in...it's just an illusion

    Step out of confusion to see that we are Divine

    Step out and use the talents which are inscribed in your mind

    Step out and shine.............

    Don't I...

    ...always 'tell' you that
    I look up to you? I hoping
    that there was never a time
    in which you wondered why,
    because this would be, at least,
    one of your answers right here.
    So deep... so informative...
    so enriching... and much
    more...
    Go 'head girl! :D
