    i'm a piano player in the dark
    i like walks in serenity's park with my wisdom as we stroll by the peace of the still waters
    i'm building my ark in chaotic times as these on my knees 2 God
    probing under the evergreen trees as he answers my prayers in a breeze..
    and i'm at ease
    i can overview the seven seas for that is the height of my faith surpassing the appalachian mountain as i drink from the fountain of life and the sun must not exceed the countenance of my wife
    of the latter
    the earth is full of "matter" as hearts begin to shatter like glass so
    it's better that i kept my a**in class than my "class" in a** ..

    i eat after twelve and pull granny smith apples from the shelves,
    a bottle of aquafina and later my mama's biscuits..
    other than that i chill
    i 've inhaled joy and pain in the same breath and but never exhaled death for God is my keeper..
    you want to know what's played out to me besides beepers??

    men who cry over women as if they are always the weakest link
    and men who often "ink" cry...
    &
    those who swear they have vision but they have no eye
    just to name a few as i reenter my garden of serenity
    and till under the drops of dew..

    have a safe and merry christmas everyone. :cool:

    peace.
