    I’m movin
    to this new found
    Groove in
    my mind
    I find
    time to move to the rhythm of my
    own thinkin
    stayin a float while ****** be
    sinkin
    further down in the crab barrel hole
    and my soul
    aches for my brothas and sistas who can’t move.
    but I’m movin.
    I’m movin on up like George and Weezzy
    I’m just doin it slow, cause heights make me queezy.
    I’m movin mountains that stand in my pathway.
    I’m movin the clouds, so I can have a sunny day.
    I’m movin the courtroom to the ghetto’s and burrows so the judge
    can be intimidated.
    Every since I been emancipated…..I been tryin to move.
    I’m watchin my sistas movin them hips…glossin them lips
    and sanctifying the earth with their presence,
    True Queen of us all the definition of Essence……
    I’m watchin my brothas scratchin the itch,
    lickin their lips, and twistin the naps in their hair.
    all the while tryin to figure out how to move somethin, that can’t fit
    in your sock…..But curiosity killed the cat, and im where im at
    cause of decisions I ain’t got no control of…..so my moves be swift
    like the cheetah, In tall blades of grass….
    and noble like the bearded ONE who had feet of Brass…..
    But it ain’t no fun if im the only one.
    movin
    I mean my moves ain’t just reserved for me
    there still some room under the tree, for you and me to catch the apple
    when it falls…..besides…who’s gonna start me up …when my moves stall…..but if you stay where you lay..
    That is totally your choice…..I listen to a higher voice and it tells me to keep
    Movin, cause I can’t stay still……and if you choose to step in my way
    Either reMOVE yourself….or I will….

    thanks

    Thanks for the love, sorry I dont get a chance to vibe that much, just been busy at work, but I will try to get in here and read everybody's stuff, Poetry serves as my release and I thank God Almighty for the gift of expression, and I thank all the poets in here for allowing me to both share and experience the gift to its fullest....

    vibe on poets....VIBE ON...

    ONE LOVE
