    Slain Brains
    Infiltrated Hearts
    In this stuff they call rap and R&B
    Don't you dare say Hip-Hop
    That is now a Mystery
    DEAD
    It's DEAD
    Get over it
    Common isn't enough for it to survive
    (He has his times too)

    Dreadful
    Insane!
    The teachings of the young
    To be Miserable and make sex exchange
    In the Light of a Father
    We have Blood
    Not blood from our Bodies
    But Bleeding Minds

    Crashing and Burning Earth
    Comming to a slow demise
    Who gave you this planet
    And said destine it's people to die?
    Oblivious? No
    Rebellious of the time
    People got us so WHACKED
    We'd Choose Hell over GOD

    How dare you think I am down!
    Not a person....not a time
    But a Life
    a Spirit
    SOmething that could make so many respond
    Something in the midst
    That could be manipulated and flipped
    People go along then are caught in it
    Low self esteem africans
    Can't bring their minds to think
    Of what they are doing
    Hurting Not one
    Not Two
    But Maybe an entire Planet

    Not to blame
    Because I believe
    It's in the Music.


    No Matter what there is always something there...Always something to bring someone down...always something to hurt another....always something there to remind. It's getting worse...Nowadays diseases are FIVE TIMES as worse as they were before....Does that seem weird? Even as we progress we get so bad we can not protect ourselves from horror.
    Until the day comes and We are all Reckoned....and Scream...."What have I done?"
    I am sorry....It was just there....

    Indeed it's all in the music we hear and the T.V we see in this mental state of liberty
    the song of teaching a dreadful scary fear and the youth who get mindfully lost on da
    lyrics.......ole skol still where truth and heart & soul is found ....reching back into my
    collection for direction and turn death ear from today's noise call music

    destruction is all in the music of betrayal what have we become !?

    It's a trend that should have come to an end like yesterday. As I read these lines...
    I had to say, Whoa, this poetess is laying it down. Speak on it!

    This was so profound. It's sad that we've come to this but it's always wonderful there are those who are still aware of the condition we're in. Powerful scribe "hurting not one, not two, but maybe an entire planet." The effect of this line is just so unexplainable to me. TRUTH

    You all are my Blessings. I appreciate all of the Love you all are giving to me and also identifying with me.
    These are and have always been trying times....but it matters who fights against the trials.
