    Where the Prince of peace is not
    Peace cannot come
    And where I am found there
    Shall never be peace
    Watching the decaying corpses
    Of poets of old
    Those who suffered tragedies
    Both mental and physical
    Provides me with a rush
    And motivation
    To scribe
    Regarding
    A new plan
    To cover the land in Darkness
    Where no Light can be found
    In the midst of the night
    The enemy shall strike
    When one least expect
    What shall happen to the unexpecting?
    Did not the Holy Writ warn us?
    To be sober and vigilant
    Then why are we often caught unaware?
    Doesn’t matter
    It’s fun this way
    Pouncing when one is not looking
    Like a driveby
    You never know where it’s coming from
    Until you are hit
    Or someone is hit
    Doesn’t matter who is hit
    As long as the hit
    Hits a mark
    We glory in other’s tragedies
    Make fun at their inadequacies
    For this judgment cometh
    The handwriting is on the wall
    And the message is clear
    Be watchful for your adversary
    Roameth the earth to and fro seeking
    Whom he may devour
    Make sure it isn’t you…

    I know I been gone, has it been that long?

    My eyes drip bitter tears
    As I search the pages for scribes
    from my dears.
    I hear , pain and anger and malice.
    What has become of the Destee Palace!
    I know it wasn't me this time...out of sight
    and probably out of mind! I am searching
    and seeking and hoping to find.
    That the love will return and the true fruit
    will again flourish on the vine...
    Blessings on ya house!

    Well dang Bishop, I don't believe I've ever been to this deep and dark side of the lighthouse. Wow!
