    Hip-hop
    R&B
    Neo Soul
    W/n lyrical content & rhythm
    stories of our personal & collective
    struggle unfold
    melodies console
    as we carry on
    in this spiritual twilight zone...

    Dancing round my place
    Jill Scott serenades me
    offers reminders to love myself
    i sing while promenading my locs
    palm rolling, twisting nappy roots into knots...

    da heartbeat of enlightenment don't stop
    as India.Aire soulfully tells me
    of strength, courage & wisdom
    Lauryn Hill helps w/my own mis-education
    schooling me how to break out of prisons
    of so many kinds...

    from this & that
    i extract tools
    for my life
    to move through
    confusion, doubt
    misery, strife...

    Meditation on rules
    of the Universe
    some Biblical
    or Qur'anic verse
    treasures so diverse
    playing it by ear
    cause for this life
    i couldn't rehearse...

    spirit w/n i try to hear
    for guidance through
    anxiety, grief
    anger, fear
    the revolution won't be televized
    the revolution's already begun inside...

    Bravo Sister....

    I do hope this is the end of your "Sabbatical"

    your work has been missed...

    and by the way...

    I absolutely became fused with essence of this piece!
    Excellent, Excellent Scribe!
