    jesus saves??
    you mean as the flag waves vibrantly
    over inner city poverty...
    where in a sea of influences my self-sovereignty is tossed
    to the bottom and becomes a garbage feeder
    for government and games...

    time and space are too universal to fit in america's little frame..
    and so is love...
    but when l say love you think of white doves,
    lambs and humble sheep but l found love
    in people from the cold hard streets who couldn't fly and refused
    to be taken to a slaughter b/c
    justice and freedom are too universal to fit america's oppressive frame-
    and so love becomes a different game when you have family to feed
    and these people suppress your need!!

    but love doesn't seem to exist and they...
    say you don't exist
    but l....
    see you on their list for constant debate
    so you...
    must exist in some kind of state
    or else...
    why do they carry your name with much hate

    a man helped you carry the cross b/c we too must bear its weight for the love of our brothers and sisters
    and began
    to clear our slate from religious and political mind mingling
    b/c in the end
    all of those bells will quit ringing when truth comes to light
    and mass confusion is no longer in sight
    and Jesus comes like a thief in the night

    Seems like he can't be here if all this confusion is going on, yet he is, as we continue to bear the weight with him. If he were to let go, we wouldn't be able to carry on. You give us something to ponder as usual poet.

    No more love above the sheets,
    it just creeps--causing the emotion,
    (Love)
    to be seen as weak.
    And the flock known as sheep suffer.....

    That's a bit of my piece entitled "The Pit" and I feel what you're sayin' in this piece.

    "but love doesn't seem to exist and they...
    say you don't exist
    but l....
    see you on their list for constant debate
    so you...
    must exist in some kind of state
    or else...
    why do they carry your name with much hate"

    I greatly enjoyed your thought provoking piece poet. I'll have to search the board for more of your writting...Very Interesting work!!

    I've always enjoyed this series...
    you've drove it home
    with some thought provoking words
    in the end...
    made me think about the instinctiveness
    to calling on God when man is in trouble
    even when some don't believe or fail to
    recognize him...in this world of mass confusion
    ...something inside of us cries out
    to it's source of existence no matter what

    this piece stirred lots of thoughts and views within me...

    feeling this...poet
    Much love,
    Sage

    Amen and AMEN
    let no one stifle your voice my brotha
    the day of reckoning is near
    let it be known
    let it be heard
    SPEAK my brotha SPEAK

    ..." then came you "

    love was
    a puzzle..
    a muzzle over my mouth until along came my queen
    escorted to me by the hand of the Most High
    in auras of praise
    and hues of earth and sky leading you
    to the last step to my distanced domain...
    l knelt out the open door...
    everything in me was brought to the floor
    from my search to my surrender

    three years later
    ...and each day is new
    each ocean is blue
    the love for you

    l am securely your house... your home
    l have many windows only your soul can see
    l have many doors only your hand can "key"...
    years later...
