    my tears tell me that much.”

    Is that so?

    Am I so
    …..confused
    …so disillusioned
    that my tears crept up on me
    without my knowing

    am I so
    …..lost in despair
    …so deserted by my SELF
    that this self was caught...surprised
    by the sound of that SELF’s lies

    Am I?

    “I’m crying,
    my tears tell me that much.”

    I sat

    Underneath an old, oak tree
    On the bank of the river pain
    Tear-stained blood flowing
    From the core of my being

    I wasn’t seeing
    Life pass before me
    Waterless streams ran
    …trembles over-whelmed me

    underneath an old, oak tree

    I sat

    “I’m crying,
    my tears tell me that much.”

    we mustn't let "SELF" deter the knowledge/growth of self.

    man man man was this ever felt in the heart instantly.

    we must embrace "SELF" to see what's on the other side. J'hia is on the money.

    THANKS...

    for raising a brutha to his feet
    ...so he can see SELF as a valuable commodity
    and not just another THROW RUG
    to be walked on...ova...and tossed aside
    when the RESPECTABLE COMPANY comes ova.

    THANKS FOR THE LOVE.

    baller,

    time to unroll the new rug son...God's weaving a new tapestry for you...one that cannot be walked on but hung up for all to see...
