    Life's road
    strolling from the middle
    walking to the end
    i stand at the top
    to ova look da maze before me

    my heart beats rapidly
    my fears not dead
    my love is strong
    so i continue on & on
    to the road of
    str8 & narrow
    a winding twist
    to my left is lifeless
    to my right is death
    behind me lay darkness
    before me ahead is visions

    too young to stop
    walk to far to go back
    yet so far to go
    to ole to complaint
    the path is all i know
    with full body armor
    a piece of faith
    i stride ahead

    One Way Highway

    my shoes run ova
    my feet burn
    the hand dry
    i see in visions along the way
    my people thirst
    felt the pain of hunger
    lack of wisdom
    yet so knowledgeable
    on this forever walk

    one way highway
    no where to turn
    blood drips
    starvation composed
    body weary
    i'm tired , i'm tired !

    tears dry to my face
    heart yet weep deep within
    i continue on this road
    i hear silent cries from
    the windz
    much was lost on this journey
    that has no end
    tyme will not stop
    tyme will not go back
    moving tic by tic
    my motal soul bend
    back at half staff
    in my mental i continue
    with memories of leg shakles & braces
    whip of marks to my skin
    felt the rape soul of my sista
    beaten & beaten & beaten
    paid with my color
    strip from the home
    now i walk in hope

    crossing my thinking unto moses
    let my people go
    free the souls
    let the spirits of the pass rest in freedom
    let my people go
    died so i may live
    spoken truth unto the lips
    i yell let my people go !!!!

    alone
    one day i will be free
    from the highway
    but until my day i continue
    feelin da pain
    hearing the cries
    watching life strip
    singing that song of moses

    (((LET MY PEOPLE GO)))
    :(

    sista purple........we will be free from the chains the lifeless
    stable of what we see daily into eternal life...

    lpoet...........we live in a circle with no end we continue
    as we see all what has to be along the way we see
    death , pain , hunger,homeless, we see it all from the
    main highway

    Thankz u two..................$R

    Very Deep. Very beautiful.

    We're all on that highway so don't think you're alone.
    But we know where it leads...
    The highway leads to That Place...

    yes cindy the path we all walk
    cries for freedom
    and the love one's we passed
    along da way down this highway
    of hope
    yes we all get tired and lonely
    our face express pain
    our souls weep deep within
    we see it
    feel it
    been through it
    and know it
    but theirs not much we can do but pray
    continue the walk beside me
    thank u

    inside the thoughts
    a rumble of tears crash
    the journey yet so far
    can't turn back
    seen like i can't continue on
    my feet just move forward
    theirs a rainbow of love
    on the otherside I just know it !!!
