    I've been granted asylum...
    I've been blessed.
    I've been given an outlet 2 express.
    I've been allowed 2 put all negative emotions 2 rest.
    My 10 seconds...
    (Inhale) 1...(exhale) 2...
    From a presidential hopeful 2 a crooked white cop,
    I've been it.
    After the re-election of he who started a war cuz of what he thought,
    I vented.
    And I read...
    ...and read...
    ...and felt.

    Consumed with emotions of many who were writing 4 self.
    Whose minds have never held their feelings prisoner.
    Whose thoughts R mental grenades designed 2 blow U away.
    Like, whoa...
    Here, advice is given freely.
    Sometimes discipline if need be.
    And all opinions R respected.
    Personal beliefs R all accepted.
    The misinformed get redirected.
    Loving hearts plea 4 the neglected.

    But now I silence my pen (hushhh) :crying:
    But that silence is not my end.
    The time it'd take 2 type my words
    Will be the time spent 2 let others know they've been heard.
    Cuz that's what it's all about, right?

    Spread love.

    Peace.

    Positive...

    This is by far one of the most poignant
    and "Insightful" poems...I've yet
    to read from you..."whoa"...

    This was on the "avenue"......u know

    I "applaud" you for this...but I hope
    the silencing of the pen is not literal..
    please tell us that it was metaphorical...

    Bro. $$, thank U 4 the feel, this is completely sincere.

    watz., I will definitely keep writing, cuz I can't stop that, but I won't post anymore here, not 4 lack of love, but 2 gain peace within due 2 that last episode with U-know-who. He never replied, I'll only reply. Peace.

    daroc, peace.

    Thank U, gempis. Your words move me.

    Sister angelic, my pen will only be silent when my life is finished. I'm not going anywhere, just gotta let it be known 2 myself that it is possible 2 spread love & not look 4 it in return.

    Thank U from the depths of my heart. mind, & soul 4 the feel. Peace.

    Poet...I do hope you will change your mind, as it pains me to think
    that one bad apple will spoil the bunch and cause such a wonderful
    additon such as you, not to post here. Your voice is a light...and if
    you feel there is darkness here, in theory I would think your passions
    for teaching and enlightening the lost would compell you to speak...
    Don't bury your gift in the sand...there are impoverished minds and souls
    that are revived because of your words...

    I hope this is not the mountain that you would want to silence yourself upon...Some mountains simply aren't worth dying on...if u know what I mean.

    "Your voice is needed...Warrior", Reconsider... :grouphug: for the greater good.

    I must admit brotha I was with sista sage...somewhat fearful
    that the silencing was literal :eeek:

    cant have that smh

    this piece/peace was so emotive it was hard to tell

    But a part of me is almost sure that you will always speak your mind as you do simply because

    it is who you are :)

    I enjoyed this piece/peace and i will say it again brotha...

    WONDERFUL to have you back :)
