    i can take a knife
    and stab you in the heart
    nstead
    i turn murder into art
    so follow the red trails...
    adreline rush- head spells
    i'm dizzy
    pen bleeding
    reincarnating lost souls into scribes
    "devil's bizzy" grandma said in view of
    hunger, disease, poverty, death and war
    i watch the plane of crime soar...
    i watch the scene at the corner store...
    "man, what did he get pulled over for??"
    drugbust, theft or driving while black
    angry cop did a racial profile
    he hates my whole style so i'm shot, sodomized, and beaten 2 death
    my manhood is eaten alive. i strive for breath in America..
    sorrow i bleed
    -headlines-
    "a man kills the mother of his unborn seed, a dying breed."
    i'm starving but noone will feed
    knowledge
    i'm feeling cheated as if by the electoral college
    or like Esau when he sold his birthright
    to Jacob for sod pottage...
    or like jesse jackson's wife as he continues
    his "operation push" in another woman's tush..
    while our recessing economy shake hands with george w. bush eating dinner with crisis...
    i hold on to my isis wholly
    while lovers put a tag on love which is priceless
    resorting to hatred, hurt, and violence
    i bleed in silence.
    i drench in the fates'....
    still i scribe words on the earth's plates
    that creep through your gates
    and lift you like abortion rates..
    wanted by fifty states bearing gov't hates
    because i don't bite stereotypical baits
    and while more of my people own estates
    the death penalty of others awaits
    but what we need more than material reparations
    is spiritual education,
    political preparation
    to meet our physical destination
    but until then
    my ink is blood..................

    Jehiah I did'nt know,
    How you take up words
    and let them flow
    What a rush
    Put my hand to my head
    Face dripping wet from
    the blood that was shed
    You moved me bruh
    So I say move bruh move
    Look foward to dancing
    To jehiah's grooves

    Welcome J

    thank you

    I am riveted to the screen, unable to find appropriate language to describe my mental/emotional/physical/spiritual condition after reading this awesome work!

    "Thank you" & "please", will have to suffice this time. :)

    "Thank you" and "please keep it coming @ me just like this".
