    Look at them
    Contemplating reality
    Trying in vain to decipher who I am
    Yet if they truly learn my style
    They still won’t understand this
    Child of the Edenic one
    The sacrificial lamb of Heaven’s Earth
    Or will they?

    To my dying breathe in struggle I abide
    Creating philosophic lines which quicken
    The pulse of unity in all Tribes
    Depth of thought displayed
    Lyrically potent
    So be conscious to the message as you
    Peer into the cipher of him who wrote it
    Rastafarian of universal levity speaking
    Out from within urban Soweto’s
    This child of Mama Africa coming home
    Carrying the burden of the slave hand

    A feather of truth struck this paper
    Spiritually guided as I inhale cannabic vapors
    Heavy in my movements
    Like a bullet striking weak hearts stuck in the
    Ghetto being bi***es and ******
    While the ancestors await their arrival

    Causing folks to check themselves with this flow of reality, keep the flow going.
