    I wonder if I sang the blues loud
    enough
    would my voice reach the clouds and
    cause them to break down and fall into
    the arms of the people and provide
    soft masses so people could
    lay their heads at night and sleep away the pain
    of just being...because being can sometimes
    be a *****........and I hate
    seeing people trapped inside of
    a self imposed futile existence a joyful
    impotence of sorts
    can't get up cause they always down
    on themselves
    on their luck
    for the count
    cause "just being"
    is kicking their *** with a vengence
    If i could sing the blues loud enough
    maybe people can lay down their heads
    and just dream.

    Blak ... if you sang the blues that loud
    you'd be arrested for disturbing the peace

    loving your flow

    "so people could lay their heads at night and sleep away the pain"...laying your head on a soft cloud and leavin the pain behind...what a beautiful thought...this peace brings serenity with it...

    I just a few verses you have defined the creative burden of a poet. This is what men of conscience do...they reason louder ways of singing the blues. They continually devise new means of rescuing a drowning society trapped in states of 'being'.

    I can see you clearly poet..see you negotiating peace with fingertips striking keys..

    If I could write what yours words mean to a brother and the fuel it gives me I'd have a novel.

    once again thank you, thank you, thank you.
