    It’s no question that I’m destined
    Learned life from many lessons
    Turned strife into progression
    Earned more from giving -but let’s see

    If the rest be feeling me
    Awarding the
    Philanthropy
    Philosophical approach
    Of planting seeds without the fees

    Let the world carry its missions
    Athiests Arabs and Christians
    Even though this world view
    Sometimes, is hard to construe

    When people are looking at you
    As if you carry out national policy
    When we look outward at “them”
    As if their cause is lost in the ungodly

    Not hardly
    Not even oddly
    When you put it in perspective
    None the less it is no question
    When there’s obvious aggression

    Taking place right on our soil
    And yes, abroad in secrecy
    Making us all facilitators of policy
    And question our own theology

    It’s all economic positioning
    Veiled in terrorism against the mission
    But the order remains intact
    As economies reposition

    And if the rhetoric forms your opinion
    And you join in superstitions
    You become one of eighty-five
    A percentage that’s statistically predicted

    Could have flipped this one in wordplay
    But you might have missed the message
    Yet its almost guaranteed
    That you’ve already second guessed it…

    …because it didn’t make you wanna dance, right?

    this is hitting on ALL point
    deep thought the deep thinker
    and on the surface someone might feel this is hot air
    but when one reads deeply they discover this piece is hot with verses like

    And yes, abroad in secrecy
    Making us all facilitators of policy
    And question our own theology


    yes yes you have it down brutha

    DSS
    peace
    but i know that will be hard

    Yeah, my approach to this was to shed light on the anti-arab sentiments going around the world. Yet, I value my family's safety as well. So the question is, will I be condemned to die for holding the title as american by arab dissenters like so many americans are condemning arabs in general -all because of politicians and world order missions....

    so on one hand I got to support the security of the nation and yet on the other -recognize the reason "why" we americans are being hated in the first place. got no other hands, just feet now.

    Tyte my brother...
    consider...

    this title - American?
    makes me the enemy of many
    the savior of some
    blood on my hand
    taring flesh from the sun
    stealing the sovereintyof nations
    not behaving as one under God
    and yet the title
    once made me three fifths
    and not one
    so am i really American?
    do i bleed red, white and blue?
    one thing is certain
    many may die that look just like....
    YOU!

    so do i desire the plight
    to fight an unwanted fight
    to stand for freedom enslaved
    and for a flag that for me does not wave
    sad but true
    for both me and you
    we have become targets
    victims of things we did not do.
