    Check the meanin' in the message
    He is as he thinks ...
    Himself better than the rest
    He strivin' to be the best
    And he can be whatever he stress
    King of the World
    But only if you fail to heed this lesson.

    Truth crashin' my foes
    Like the dummies they be
    To entertain such a vain idea
    As to claim my place.

    Paint a Prophet with a pale face
    To give him a race
    Lable the Gods of Ptah Tanen
    An utter disgrace.

    Spreadin' lies of a Wicked Seed
    Fully resurrected
    Blessed of God and given Heaven.

    Six days on the Throne
    November the 14th
    In one swift Motion
    A hundred years deceased.

    Tell me if you know
    Or if you really care
    What the voice of those chosen to suffer
    Speaks of Death.

    Help me understand how it is
    That my people were murdered
    Raped and robbed
    Systematically torcher'd by so-called
    People of God
    Tell ya the devil aint'cha brother
    My experience inspires me
    To murder these bustas.

    Turn around and watch the world burn
    The truth making changes
    Flip the poles and put me in the East
    Waking from my sleep ... to find
    My people scattered, no priest
    To see the rebirth of my mind.

    So true and profound! I believe we have to be our own priests for it is the spirituality within us all that allows us to truly experience our true destiny.

    People of God do not collectively rape, murder, and otherwise harm for years, that is the way of the devil. Speak on, poet.

    Thanks a Bundle of Joy.

    Appreciate your words, Sis. I am also of the opinion that we must be our own priests. In fact, this is hinted in my poem. "Waking from my sleep" speaks to spiritual rebirth of my mind. But what I found was that my people had been scattered and/or displaced. Thus, no priest was present, despite the fact that the Earth (that is, its poles) had been flipped in such a way as to "put me in the East," though I reside in the West, where I find no priest to witness the new me or mind/spirit that I am. The priests are my own people.

    Hi One9
    No the devil is not our brother
    but it has a goal to
    Mess with our mind, hope we will
    Look away from the SUN and not
    Toward it. The Sun, the Moon
    The Stars. We can't be caught sleeping
    Anymore. Or maybe not sleep at all
    Mind open and on guard, because we as a race
    Have gone through some stuff. Awesome drop
    Thank you for the flow


    Peace~N~Love
