NAKED
AND SO NAKED I STAND BEFORE YOU
BECAUSE I HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO HIDE
AND WITH NO CLOTHES ON
YOU MAY HAVE THE VISION TO SEE CLEARLY
TO THE REAL INTENT OF MY POEMS
AND ALL THAT I FEEL INSIDE
AND I KNOW THAT FROM DEALING
WITH THE PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD
I KNOW THAT WE WOULD ALL LIKE A SAFE PLACE TO BE
NATURAL, NAKED, FREE
AND FOR WHATEVER REASONS
WE’VE BEEN FOOLED INTO THINKING
THAT THE ONLY WAY TO GET THROUGH THESE TIMES
IS TO DRESS FLY
AND LIVE HIGH
AS IF THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO HOLD OUR MINDS
WHEN THE MEANS OF THE MONEY STOPS
AND THE LIGHTS GO OFF
WHEN YOUR LOVED ONES ARE DYING
JUST FROM PAYING THAT COST
OF A TAXATION THAT WAS INVENTED
TO KEEP THE BEATEN BEAT
IT’S LIKE RUNNING IN CIRCLES
CHASING YOUR TAIL
ALL THE WHILE ON SWOLLEN FEET
AND I OVERSTAND THESE TIMES
YOU SEE
FOR I AM A PART OF THE STRUGGLE
AND NO, I DON’T WRITE LETTERS TO THE LEGISLATION
I , I WAS JUST BORN BLACK IN THIS JUNGLE
AND FROM THAT TIME TIL NOW
I’VE BEEN TRYING TO BE SEEN
TRYING TO BE HEARD
TRYING TO RESTART DREAMS
TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE MY PEOPLE KNOW
THAT AN OUTFIT CAN NEVER RAISE THE SELF ESTEEM
OF A QUEEN OR A KING
AND DISCOURAGED SOMETIMES YOU MAY FEEL
WHEN ONCE YOU’VE COME TO THE REALITY
THAT THIS LIFE IS ALL TOO REAL
BUT FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS
WE MUST FIND THE WILL
TO PUSH FORWARD STILL
BESIDES…IF WE’VE ALL FLOWN AWAY
WHO WILL TEACH THEM HOW TO ….LIVE
WHO WILL HELP THEM TO UNDERSTAND THE PRESSURES
FELT AROUND THE GLOBE
WHO WILL SHOW THAT RESPECT IS DUE
NO MATTER THE LACK OF ELECTRICITY
OR THE WESTERN WORLDS USE OF A STOVE
WHO WILL TELL THEM THEY ARE BLESSED
AND THAT NOTHING BEATS A FAILURE
BUT A TRY
AND TO ALWAYS LOVE THY NEIGHBOR
BECAUSE HE LIVES IN I AND I
AND THERE’S NO OTHER WAY FOR ME TO DO IT
YOU SEE, I WOULD RATHER TO NOT HAVE TO FAKE IT
SO I’VE TAKEN OFF ALL OF THE BULL ISH
AND I STAND BEFORE YOU
NAKED

NUDE

Here , i am" before you
upon my nudity so clear
whereas i am not hidden
but thy wide open vast
for thy world to see
I know not to be cloth
in da garments of secrecy
so i stand here waitlessly
wailing in da venture
this was so awesome i got lost for words sis ya pen is power
I am indeed one your #1 fanz
 
Thank you Sis Watz, and Thank you Bro Rich,
In this society so much emphasis is placed on things that just are not that important. As you may can tell from my posts and threads that I am quite comfortable with myself, inside and out. I have nothing to hide, it's is yours, mines, and the worlds to see, hopefully by my being able to be so raw and real, it will encourage others too also be real, and not hide behind, the things that don't matter. Then and only then can we begin to deal with the real issues at hand, like taking back our children, our families and our communities.
Be Blessed! and Thank you!
