    This may not be the place but I had to shout out Angelicsage, Rich, Watizinaname, Deepy, Muse, 7th Poet, Toylin, Monetary, Poetrymama, Alphamale Prizefighter, Khasm 13 Mzblkangel, triniti424, krazelrides, and of course Destee herself!!! You all have showed too much love and I wanted to say thanks!!!

    One love
    for all my poets
    without dubs at the club
    huslin’ cd’s to make a livin’,
    after being banished by the
    bull**** corporate american system.
    One love
    for all my grassroots guerilla soldiers
    standing strong on the frontline of
    Truth, Justice, and Honesty.
    One love to the family.
    Not the mama’s and daddies of the babies,
    but the husband and wife team
    who dream of the day that their child
    will go wild on this fabricated existence known
    as life.
    One love
    to those working at night.
    Waffle House hats or suited in
    your whites and blacks
    attacking tables to make a way;
    much respect, I feel you everyday.
    One love
    to the street;
    concrete gains cuzz scholarly brains
    failed you….
    but you
    reign true during head to head free style battles
    in clubs from 402 to depths deep blue.
    One love
    to the old school.
    Saggin’ jeans with marijuana induced dreams
    ’86 box Chevy (so clean)
    rollin’ on them thangs.
    One love to God
    Who watches from heaven’s height,
    Spying His children
    who run in the night. (Finally)
    One love to the love that love produced.
    To the roots and boots
    that are laced every morn;
    One love to the pages torn,
    and to each and every poet…..
    that is born!!!

    I may have posted this here before, but I had to do it again to express myself because of all the love that this family and community has showed me :hot: :hot: :hot: :hot: :hot: :love: :love: :love: :jumping: :jumping: :luvv: :luvv: :luvv:

    It takes a poet who is as thoughtful and as talented as yourself, to scribe such a piece. I appreciate this more than you know. Thank you.
