    .... could it be that it was all so simple
    to hear my mom pray the night away..
    crying... sweating...
    reaching heaven right away
    and l watch...
    l see ideological, theological hands without the
    sweat and tears on their philosophical palms
    trying to have her ability to calm the soul...
    and the grasp to have the key...

    that's why l yell...
    peeps like Mel Gibson increase my passion to get my lethal weapon
    l see church people 2 step but they're 1 step from hell.
    they yell....
    churches divide over doctrinal differences
    but when it comes to dividends they
    all want you to dig deep for your dollars
    and l'm like "****,,
    y'all worse than Uncle Sam."

    now look at the poets next to you and say "**** spam"

    capitalism
    becomes the circuitry
    meanwhile
    a pastor/priest reads a verse to me with
    d!ck on his breath
    right before a little Crunk and Praise
    with Lil' Jon as
    choir director...
    nowadayz that's how they get down....
    it all looks the same....
    sad and lame
    and l promise it's a shame to The Risen
    how the church can be a prison....

    My Dearest J'hiah...
    how this "bomb" of enlightenment
    radiated upon my face as I
    smiled,laughed and my eybrows raised consistently
    with an occasional..."hmmmm" and "ooooo,k"...
    as I read...
    I felt as though I had found water
    in the dryest of deserts...
    because that's how good it is...
    to see you back...breaking it off
    without restraints...

    Sending Love Your Way....Always Your Sage :heart:
    For I am in awe... :bowdown:






    ooooooooooooooooooooo

    Well now...if i wasn't wide awake before, I am now. I know you're not saying that this is the majority, but it does occur all too often. I loved this in your face vibe. Keep flowing.

    you speak the truth
    i read it again and realized
    you ain't got the radical view
    you are very very insightful poet
    and i know what you talkin about
    the corruption eruptin inside the church is disturbing

    thank you for allowin me to read your work :read: :read: :read: :read: :wave: :wave:
