    yesterday

    i marched down corridors of hopelessness

    beyond the cliff of great despair

    i saw there

    a
    senselessness

    a madness
    i'm unfamiliar with

    a level of grief i cannot dance with

    as i walked my way

    along the banks of the river LIFE

    my bonds fell free

    my shackles gave way to inner strength

    i'm a prisoner...no more.

    no longer
    am i bound by the chains of LUST

    no longer
    does desire for WRONG pain my soul

    no longer
    are PLAYA games a part of my repertoire

    i'm free

    FREE
    to LOVE
    ...to give the WHOLE of me
    to she who has been there for me
    comforted me
    through the games
    ...the lies
    and midnight alibis
    that once consumed me

    FREE...

    not weighed down by
    DRAMA
    and negative Karma
    associated with the PLAYA dogma

    FREE...

    of all the GUILT that once hounded me
    the PAIN i caused (in others) that i could never see
    now, clearly visible, staring back at me
    from the windows of broken souls
    forgive me
    these trespasses
    i've inflicted on thee
    and all the anger
    i've caused thee
    when all you wanted was
    you and me

    now, i'm free.

    FREE

    ...to be the man i was intended to be
    the husband my lady wants me to be
    the father my children expects me to be

    FREE.

    {to be me}

    now you know...

    what i meant...
    when i last
    spoke with your...
    person...

    i can have no worries
    of who i used to be
    and what i once
    ...wanted, badly (brown skin)

    i freed...me

    the poetess inspired you
    ...poet...
    to reach beyond your
    SELF
    and realize the greatness
    the lived within
    your soul...

    freed...

    a man...
    i see...in
    you

    happy for you~

    IN AWE.............

    I AM STUNNED INTO SILENCE
    BY THE DEPTH OF YOUR WORDS
    MOVED BY THE BEAUTY
    IN WHAT I HEARD
    AS I TASTED YOUR THOUGHTS UPON MY LIPS
    I BEGAN TO PICTURE THIS
    A UNIVERSALLY LOVING SOUL
    A SWEET CARESS MAKING YOU WHOLE
    APPRECIATION FOR WHO U R
    NOT WHO YOU COULD BE
    SEE, I RELEASED ME
    FROM THE NEGATIVITY AND PAIN
    I WALK TALL IN HONOR OF MY NAME
    AND THOSE THAT CAME BEFORE ME
    READY TO STEP THRU THE DOOR AND SEE
    WHAT THE FUTURE WILL HOLD
    IF IT LIVES UP TO WHAT I'VE THOUGHT AND BEEN TOLD
    FEELIN THE POWER WHEN I BEHOLD
    ALL THAT IS ME, THAT IS WE
    I CAN FINALLY SEE
    CUZ I AM FINALLY FREE

    MsD...

    like you've said so many times before...once you reach that point, none of the BS matters. AND YOU KNOW WHEN YOU'VE REACHED THAT POINT.

    NINI...you know. {SEE YOUR POST.}
