    Blak allow us to send you away with this tribute for you will truly be missed.


    Lyrical verses
    Of philosophical proclaim
    Invoking our minds and inviting new ideas
    Changing our way of thinking
    Whether love or life
    You possess a power of the flow
    That energizes our soul
    As you leave to consecrate yourself
    And prepare yourself
    For a new level in life
    You shall experience
    A deeper flow
    That shall allow you
    To transcend
    And move in a vein
    Unexplored
    Allow the vibes of the fam
    To empower you
    To strengthen you
    When the forces of life
    Tries to drain you of the poetic edge
    Draw on the poetic fire
    Of this body of scribes
    To consume and baptize you
    so that as a phoenix
    You may rise with more poetic power
    Than ever before
    reveal and dispel the darkness of life
    inspire and revive the creative mind
    mold and shape and foster new life
    reign as a Master Scribe
    on the words of your prose
    we shall ride
    high
    into the impossibilities
    changing reality
    into what true poetry be.

    Be Blessed My Brother

    My brothers, I say "Thank You"

    Bish and Watcher, you brothers are definitely real. I appreciate the piece to the depths of my soul. As I've replied to a couple of other pieces to try and describe this piece would be impossible. I thank you, you brothers have always got a brother in me, mos def. I haven't gotten to Destee just yet, but, there will be an anthology you brothers just have your scribes ready (I know you will). It's time everyone here has the opportunity to let their gift shine. Hit me on my email and leave me your email addys so we can keep in touch. [email protected]

    one love,blak
