    A diamond being of many different facets
    It brilliance unknown,
    until viewed as a whole
    The glory of which is a joy to behold
    As we learn aside with our neighbour
    Process sometimes uncomfortable and to dimensions unknown
    So no fear as we grow
    Safe in akashic memories and the knowledge that it bestows
    And so it is with us

    yes

    the search for truth is not easy

    fear is a very big problem

    fear is a great defense mechanism

    but it can get in the way

    sometimes

    feeling the spiritual essence of your work poet

    The continous battle of overstanding and comprehension of our system. How wonderful it is in it's true form. accepting all realities rather good or bad as real life is and should be. Fear is a very important tool used to keep us from re membering. I am taking this ride to the last stop sister. I have a feeling you will be on the bus with me. hotep great write!:toast:

    SeekingMaat,

    This is so beautiful, you have properly identified Black People as a whole, and specifically us here, Destee.com. You capture the essence of being for all.

    There is that unifier that makes us shine, that collectively, we have not identified in common terms, just in my view, only, that is the missing Link!

    You own a beautiful pen, SeekingMaat, use it
    !

    The search for truth is well worth the apprehension of what might be discovered. Appreciate your flow.
