    LIFE THE UPS AND DOWNS,TO SEARCH FOR AN ANSWER ONLY TO FEEL THE EMPTINESS.YOU REFLECT BACK ON THE THINGS YOU HAVE TRIED TO ACCOMPLISH ONLY TO BE LEFT WITHIN AN EMCOMPASS OF NOTHINGLESS.YOU REMEMBER YOUR OWN PHRASE ABOUT STARTING OVER AGAIN,THEN YOU START TO LOSE THAT EDGE;YOU QUESTION WHY? AND ALL THE WHILE THE ANSWER WAS WITHIN YOU.NEVER DID YOU GIVE IN TO THE SURROUNDING PRESSURES OF DRUGS,NEVER DID YOU FALL TO ANY OF THE THINGS THAT WENT TERRIBLY WRONG,YES YOU FOUGHT TO REMAIN STRONG,AND AT TIMES YOU FELT EMPTY,AND OUT OF IT ALL, YOU WERE NEVER ALONE.THE PRESENCE OF GOD PROTECTED AND BROUGHT YOU THROUGH.SOMETIMES WE LOSE SIGHT OF THE BEAUTIFUL FOREST FROM THAT ONE TREE THAT BLOCKS YOUR VIEW.FEEL THE CALMNESS OF THE LAKE AS GOD BLOWS THE BREATHE OF SURVIVAL OVER YOU TO SOOTHE ALL YOUR HURTS AND PAINS.SO NEVER STOP BELIEVING,NEVER STOP PRAYING,ALWAYS LOVE AND FOREGIVE, EVEN THY ENEMIES.

    Bayete!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (that is the royal address of Shaka Zulu by anyone wanting to speak to him) usually you would wait for Shaka to acknowledge your presence before you would even dare to speak...when he got very blood thirsty in his last years, he would have people killed if he so much as thought that they were looking at him in the wrong way..just a bit of my two cents worth..

    anyway, to the scribe, my brother, struggle makes a man stronger. Stronger to survive, stronger to remain when others fall on your left and right, and yes at time you will be the only man standing..

    later..
