    for all the brothas here at Destee who defiantly fight with the pen

    you flow like waters, reinvigorating dehydrated mental stations with your cooling effect,
    you blaze like aurora bursts, resurrecting daybreak to post-midnight contemplations,
    you shine, Dashikied diamonds in the rough, manipulating words with your transfixing glow,
    and you know…yeah, you know…
    it’s in the way your words glide across the page,
    the way your verbs stride into metaphoric plains
    causing nouns to stop and act accordingly,
    your prowess, taking human pain
    rephrasing and adlibbing
    ultimately creating singsongs of emotion, that leap off the page,
    your rage, a soliloquy of our peoples plight
    struggle embodied in your poetic force,
    you are the voice of the future
    the voice of life, thriving, surviving, refuse to accept vainly dying,
    striving to be the epitome
    of the black man/poetic/intelligent/strong/benefactor
    of the greatest creativity
    when you love, you elevate it to a whole different state,
    a higher plane where mind, body, heart, soul….and pen constantly remain
    combined, intertwined, locked in a continuous stream,
    all determined to accommodate endlessly for the black Queen,
    diligently, you intently devise a plan, so that you can be the man
    she deserves, has searched for, has needed for so many years,
    you are one of
    a chosen few
    who recognize
    our greatest needs,
    and your soul won’t let you rest until
    in your words, you’ve expressed these….

    he sits, eating a let meal,
    at a diner around the way,
    he consumes his food, mind casually explore
    the stresses of the day,
    then, suddenly he sees,
    mother (and child)
    outside
    (they beg for bread)
    from deep within
    compassion
    rage (they are being ignored)
    sorrow
    guilt (why is he so blessed?)
    these thoughts ring in his head….
    and so he writes,
    cause this is his escape
    from a world so cruel
    with tragic fates
    like forced to beg before you’ve had
    the chance to live
    and so he writes,
    cause this helps him cope
    with a world to content
    on its will to break,
    so many forced to take what they get
    while a minority can greedily get what they take
    and so he writes,
    because its in his blood,
    flowing, growing,
    he writes, because he wants to,
    he writes, because he can,
    he writes, because for him to survive
    this is what it takes….


    and this is dedicated to all of you out there, pen ready,
    who can relate

    keep scribin’
