    When I listen to the poets of my generation flow
    I hear voices of conscious reflection
    Sisters tired of being called ******* and whores
    Brothers elevating themselves from the street corner
    To become kings of unknown worlds
    I witness everyday life written down into lyric
    Compositions
    Divine missions to free the spirituality of the internal
    Self from a slave-like bondage of ignorance

    This Poetry is designed to enlighten the mental
    Not heighten those things that divide us or make
    Us criminal-minded
    Blinded because we refuse to look beyond the
    Community the holds us captive to the bling bling
    Weakening us, instead of making us GODS within
    The land of the living
    You see, sometimes we must look back from within
    Our prison to gain REFLECTION

    I write about life’s vision
    The way thing’s are within my society and the way
    Jah created them and ordered them to eventually be
    And when I look back and hear the voices of they
    Who say that I’m a dreamer,
    I laugh a little and say; now I live as a believer in
    The spirit of Jah
