    My mellow connection
    To RHYTHMS
    I’m down with

    Were disturbed by
    IMMATURE
    Thoughts of violence

    Undercurrents
    Of UPSET {anger}
    Threatened my destiny

    No longer
    Was CALM
    Where it needed to be

    I await the day
    CENTER
    comes back to me

    And allow the river
    to flow
    Within me

    sometimes...

    we allow ourselves to get CAUGHT UP. we let PEOPLE get next to us...in a way that belittles us. I ALLOWED THAT. now, i'm back in the drivers seat...back in control of me and my destiny.:)

    aight

    now that you done got rid of them xtra passengers....... But you know sometymes our own peoples get so jealous of us doing good that they will go to above and beyond to bring us down. Some folk just hate to see others doing good and that's a dayum shame. Be it financially, romatically, educationally, or poetically they just be straight hattin'.
