    blast from the past...

    The likes in which the world nevaseen
    I mean
    hit ya like a dream
    an extreme
    Take someofthem pearls of wisdom wit' that vision
    understanding this don't servetonegate that indecision
    Listen as I pray for a way up outofthis hole that we was left in
    Exceptin'
    no blame forthepain
    except when
    we choose to stop steppin'
    I guess when it's over
    it's over
    Slave
    Bettahmetamorph to soldier
    Drop that shtuff they sold ya
    Told ya,
    Minds should be uplifted
    Should've been made to shine like a nine
    Make ya blind when they be gifted
    Sifting through that flour
    power
    Can't pay no bills on no five bucks an hour
    Can't pay no bills on no six bucks an hour
    Can't pay no bills on no…
    Hmm
    ButI'mwise
    totheways
    oftheworld
    Side-steppin' swine baby
    tryin' to get my pearls




    I walked the earth
    Seen this birth and death
    First and last breaths
    A task just to pass this test
    Orisitapuzzle?
    I wonder
    like Stevie
    B-B-B-Been there
    done that and they
    still don't believe me
    I just laugh
    'causetheydon't know the half
    A path in the makin'
    Awaken
    with a splash or a crash
    if we're hell raisin' and trail blazin'
    but we gon' still
    betheones
    up in the sun like that raisin
    Prayin' and praisin' the almighty
    Blessin's and intercessions
    Questions best answered after
    lessons and sessions
    I'm guessin'
    Yeah, then in come the swine tryin' to use me
    I watch Your heavenly mercy rain down profusely
    Excuse me ya'll imposters
    The news be
    I'm slippin' syllabic seeds up in your dome
    Ya can't refuse me
    Hmm
    And I'm wise
    to the ways
    of the world
    Side-steppin' swine baby
    tryin' to get my pearls

    Thanx, yall.
    The look? As in "show nuf do be cookin in my book" look?
    but what is appearence without substance?
    only thing I can think of worse than that is no look
    and no substance... sigh...

    Peace

    sequential
    words like evidence yo
    feel the quentessencial
    permanence of the mental
    not accidental
    temporal subjective
    visage
    just the superficial reflected
    deeper than sub surface
    and initial perspectives
    tho so so selective
    like vision corrected
    or light redirected
    or bent past the topical
    like levels of rain on the brain
    like tropical
    epochs past philosophy
    plato or socrates
    into the metaphysical
    Jesus and the Spiritual
    this is what I'm hearin yo
    and the words true to ring
    I'm feelin' the feel
    so go 'head and do the thing

    Peace
