    Some claim they want to see
    But then become afraid of their vision
    Some ask for the gift to teach
    Then become afraid of their mission
    And ask for an intermission
    Or some type of intervention
    While all the while trying to run
    From their mission and their inner vision
    Which was about to turn into inner wisdom
    Falling short of their quick decision
    Now the answers to their quick decision
    Can’t be heard because they refuse to sit and listen
    So all the while they think that something is missin’
    And that somethin’ that’s missin’
    Start’s feeling more like mysticism
    But they refuse to subside
    And reflect on the mystical teacher they heard down by the seaside
    Always teaching on false pride
    But their own arrogance made them think
    He had one false eye
    Whose vision get’s blurred
    When the words of wisdom are heard
    When the lesson goes un-headed
    At the time not knowing
    That’s exactly what was needed
    One Example, the result of the O.J. trial
    I guess black people needed to smile
    Don’t disagree so quickly
    Or like the teacher by the seaside, you might just miss me
    Ponder on the injustices
    We scream about almost daily
    Or Harry potters “tale of the 2 towers”
    Which we were lied to about, because they were blown up by Israeli’s
    We can dance around poetic lines
    Like we were all taught by Alvin Ailey
    Or snitch on El-hajj Malik’s were abouts when he left the N.O.I.
    No not me, it was Alex Haley
    Take it or leave it alone
    It’s just a message in a bottle
    I’d rather George Grand Master James
    Couldn’t give a f—k about an Aristotle
    Meaning study your own
    Why should we follow what they teach
    If they risk their lives to break into our “home”
    Just to study our bones
    And they can’t even find them without the help of our own
    “I’m over here”
    Is what the bones say when the gods come near
    Or our “Arfrikan brothers”, I know some still don’t refer to themselves as gods
    So let the god come clear

    There's much power in what we feel, sometimes it can be overwhelming, the truth often is. Flow on, Info.
