    Climb upon the stone of wisdom
    where knowledge is bare raw
    squeezing da life of knowning

    Head high aware of what is
    from what was and who
    I stood on pride rock today

    Learning wit fist in air
    feeling the soulful good
    displaying my root that i am

    I found an angel at her end of journey
    cage in her isolation through stale air
    but on da rock of pride she stood

    comfort in apathy
    what a feeling of urgency
    all my fears escape concealing powerment

    Strong anew and alive
    hope now endow me to move forward
    with greater pride of greatness

    I’ve been gone for a while but it’s nice to come home and see a familiar face. You’ve been doing your thing for as long as I can remember and the consistency is undeniable. Dude, you are the pride of this poetry forum and an inspiration for a brotha like myself that needs to pick the pen back up and for that I thank you.
