    Poets need to take the world back and
    Use their tool till' there's nothing left to fix
    And teach the world not to conform to
    This commercialness
    Because the more that we do we will
    Only find ourselves broken and in binds
    Letting the world put us back into chains
    Over a few spoken lines, by contolling others
    With what kind of rims to have and what
    Kind of cars to drive
    Is that really what we want to stand up and claim?
    I need all the Poets to take the world back
    Because America has become so comfortable
    With death it's in our own back yard,
    And morality has been in disreguard
    And the only ones that are getting the
    Full effects of it are people like
    Shaivo,
    Louma,
    And every single Black man still in exsistance,
    All handicaps, and anybody who
    Has a religion that is outside of Christianity
    I need Poets to take the world back
    Because they seem to be the only people
    Who think like me...
    We don't have Republican or Democratic minds
    We take our own Political stance on
    Lying statistics and 3rd World genocides
    Saying forget the U.N. because we have
    The real solution, And we're not in this
    M.T.V. or B.E.T. type stuff because
    That's just musical pollution
    And until i can get the greats like
    Monk,
    Common,
    Nas and
    Holiday
    On one station then i don't even want to watch T.V.
    And i only want to be with someone who
    Has the same Mind as me because i feel that
    I'm real enough to, because i want to have
    Metaphoric conversations and make Intellectual Love
    Without it being all complexicated
    Because your the only person that can detangle me
    And see through the same eyes as me,
    And for that i appreciate you
    Because your a Poet yourself
    So with I'm asking that
    All Poets to take the world back and
    Use their tool till' there's nothing left to fix
    Because if we let mainstream society inform us
    More than we do to them,
    Than who knows....
    We may just be next

    I liked the message here, letting our own inner voices color what we see and write, and feeling as one with those who do the same. Diggin the vibe in this piece.
