    I put pen to paper because my soul is overflowing
    And my thoughts toss to and fro like wind blowing
    No direction or course changing at their own whim
    How I wish my mind would behave proper and prim
    Then I could somehow get in step with everyone else
    I long to be able to waltz through life simply on impulse
    But I am doomed to be conscientious and give a care
    Which in this day in age seems to be just so rare
    Somewhere we have the lost the consciousness of the we
    And in its place we have became all absorbed in the “me”
    Forgetting that we are not free to flutter our life away
    I know that it’s been ingrained into you to seize the day
    But you have to begin to take some regard for our plight
    And stop wasting time and jump in and join the fight
    For it’s in our unity that the solution shall be found
    And we will finally be able to get off the ground
    For no matter what the world or you think of you
    I really need every last one of you to make it through
    No matter who you are I can’t afford to throw you away
    For you may be the spark needed to light our pathway
    So my brother, my sister I beg of you to get it together
    I’ve go your back even if your biological don’t bother
    We are all in this together so we all are interrelated
    So as you rise, I will never be the one to offer hate
    But I will be standing on the sidelines uplifting you
    Pushing you, hoping for you, and praying for you
    For as you rise, I rise and we all rise together as one

    uplifting

    Through da tyme new age

    we all as one must set da stage
    we not free but never cage
    forget about olden day in rage
    Uplifting da spirits of another
    from our awareness sisters & brothers
    we must fight forward to uncover
    our truth and love to each other
    we can leave not one behind
    for so we lost on da dime
    see the me and the I has to fly
    so it can be a we the world now see
    so i stand at da helms
    pushing , guiding and love all
    see uplifting is within da call
    who's next don't even stall..

    This was awesome and well heard / felt and lingers in da mind thankz for da wake up!

    Asimplepoet...what can I say to this? As I read your words, I envisioned us grasping each others' hands no matter how much strength it took to lift the other up, no matter how hurt, tired, angry, depressed... Amazing you are in your inspiration...
