    Rejection is rejection
    And hate is hate
    Let's not get it twisted
    It's all the same

    Pain is pain
    And fear is fear
    POVERTY IS POVERTY
    No matter what walk of life you live in
    It is near

    Jealousy is jelousy and envy is envy
    gossip is gossip
    Grief is disatisfaction

    The question of this age

    Is WHO CAN SATISFY MY SOUL?

    Not a melody
    Not a belief
    Not a remedy

    No no one can hold

    Extreme is extreme
    Ain't no one different than the other

    Hurt is hurt
    Weather it's from a stranger or your own brother
    As Oleta James once sang

    EVERYTHING MUST CHANGE
    CUZ NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
    EVERYONE MUST CHANGE
    AND NO ONE STAYS THE SAME

    THE YOUNG BECOME THE OLD
    AND MYSTERIES DO UNFOLD
    AND THAT'S THE WAY I'LL DIE,
    OLD
    NO ONE STAYS THE SAME

    You look around
    You hear the youth cry, from a fatherless generation
    You see people die senseless
    Violence must be the cause of RACISM

    You see people SPEND themselves
    Living day after day
    Is there any kind of HOPE
    Living in desperation
    Is there any other way?

    CUZ It's overwhelmingly spreading across the earth

    Who can feed my soul?
    What is love?
    SOME MAY NEVER KNOW
    Release me from this DEATH
    I've lost TRUST AND THEREFORE RESPECT!
    Where does it go what does it all mean??????

    There must be something deeper
    WHAT'S NEXT?

    REJECTION IS REJECTION
    And hate is hate
    Let's not get it twisted
    It's all the same

    Pain is pain
    And fear is fear
    POVERTY IS POVERTY
    No matter what walk of life you live in
    It is near

    Jealousy is jelousy and envy is envy
    gossip is gossip
    Grief is disatisfaction

    The question of this age

    Is WHO CAN SATISFY MY SOUL?
    who can soothe this pain
    who can calm the stormy sea
    WHO CAN FEEL THIS PAIN?

    I am a soul
    I AM A SOUL
    I am a soul

    I AM A SOUL
    THAT when i perish i perish
    As my spirit leaves my body
    And it is written in the book
    To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord
    Not taking anyone with me
    Not taking even my DNA

    Just me and the creator
    Before him I will give an account
    Beforfe him
    I will feel no SHAME.

    Desert Storm

    There are many different reasons as to why pain is inflicted, and in all it's forms it hurts. Let your ink continue to flow.

    I FEEL You!!!!
    I FEEL You!!!!
    I FEEL You!!!!

    and then some more

    Desert Storm as a name, is putting it lightly
    I wanna BE with thee Almighty
    Cause I'm tired of this pain
    I've had enough of the shame
    Running around ..playing a game

    Seeking fortune and fame
    And all I want is to BE
    LOVED, PROTECTED AND CARED FOR

    I'm leaving now...getting up off the FLOOR
    walking out the DOOR
    Going after MORE.....

    Rejection can be love ...
    Rejection can be pride...

    if u turn ur back on taught self-hate

    their hate can make u rise...

    gotta play these cards been dealt..
    yeah, maybe life ain't fair...

    the whole purpose at the end my friend..
    yeah, I still have no answer there...

    but their purpose I figured out..
    to say I'm not beautiful...

    I gladly reject that bullish...
    cause I c myself.. and i know they r full of bull

    fear is fear.. only thing to fear is fear itself..
    and i c the fear in their eyes.. cause they know i don't fear myself!

    all this what u can't b.. what you'll never b...
    who ever said i wasn't happy as I am...

    i love my place in the struggle...
    my soul is my business... leave america to "the man"

    the crooked *** establishment.. the tricks they try to play..
    jedi mind tricks... we supreme.....

    yeah... i'm rejecting that today...

    one day i know last will be first...
    and those that think they first will be last.....

    social structure they set up......
    designed to make us underclass....

    trust urself.... man u all alone.. it's something we all go thru..
    but it always been this way... judas did it to jesus too...

    cain he killed his brother.... adam's wife gave him forbidden fruit...

    i think all these thing represent... envy, jealousy... hate and loot...
    the things that make us sell our soul......

    it's always been this way...

    but these are the things that I reject...
    so I think rejection can represent love in this way...

    what u think?

    Thanks, Rich, your input is always appreciated it. :SuN030: Mr. Sweety Mayn~ hee hee hee

    Watzinaname~ I think you have such an awesome gift of love. A gift of encouragement that comes from that heart and warms the soul. You make me smile, I WUV YOU. Thanks for flowin wit me.

    Miss Lady- I feel you completely. I feel you completely. One of the many great things about our people is that we have been able to RISE to the top despite ADVERSITY. I will and we will continue to CARRY ON!, We will continue to JOURNEY ON, we will continue to LOVE ON and HOLD ON, and SHINE ON~ I feel you, I feel you...I'm so glad you put this out there. Just a little reminder to not forget, ya know who you are and then purpose of it all is to make you STRONGER. And that it will when you EMBRACE IT and frame it in the right perspective. This is a journey that we are all on and things that we've all faced. Thanks sis

    Blessings to All

    I TOTALLY GET YOU HERE

    TRUST ME DESERT

    and i understand what you meant about rejection

    i just wanted to add

    rejection sometimes is a good thing lol

    not saying rejecting someone because of whatever

    but if someone is doing things like drugs, having sex all over the place

    and crimes, that person i know you would reject

    feel me

    your piece was beautiful DS

    when you understand where you are in this material matrix

    but you allow you spirit to thrive

    that's when your soul will be satisfied

    thru you thru the light portal

    and again you make another great point
