    heaven's gotta be better
    there has
    got
    to
    be
    MORE
    to scribe about there
    there
    has got to be a better place than here
    which is where
    one's life can be stripped from he
    from a being other than God

    there has to be civilization above the clouds
    in distant dimensions where people aren't segregated
    in heart
    spirit
    in thought
    where people aren't hungry
    and weary from the long days
    that
    have
    become
    their lives...

    what really is reality?

    the dress rehearsal for heaven?

    because
    simply put

    life is hard.
    this family makes it easier.

    yet i lost a brother.
    there has
    go to be a relief
    there
    must be
    MORE than what this life has to offer...
    there is a heaven.

    J is there.
    and he's writing.
    scribing in the skies
    in distant civilaizations
    incomprehensible to our physical form.

    he is writing.
    still writing here.
    vicariously thru
    us.

    espee.remembering.

    BROTHER J ~ MOTHER DESTEE

    Word to your brother
    Watching as we struggle
    Writing it all down
    Waiting for the crowd

    We'll delight in heaven
    Writers, poets, legends
    With Destee as our patron
    Without all the hating

    1poetsought ~ peace!

    That was real touching TPS, yeh, he is up there writin for Gabriel, reading what we write, being what he was on earth xcept without eternal strife. May his family find peace in his writing and our words of condolences.

    The Poet Sean ... wow ... such a beautiful flow for our Brother ... yes ... while God has blessed us with a refuge here ... there must be more ... it has to get better ... he's there, an Ancestor himself ... leading and guiding ... reading and writing ... perhaps even giving our hearts and minds words to share ... so much hope and love in this peace ... thank you for it.

    :heart:

    Destee
