    silence of the lamb

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On Silence.
    It is to be used as a weapon of sorts.
    Not too long, not too short.
    Silence stops the soul from ranting on
    Silence is wthin those chanting OHM
    When Martin Luther the King paused you felt his speech
    Malcolm X did'nt pause he let it leak
    Some choose to let it peak to the breaking point
    Some choose to let it out over a fat joint
    Some hide it in their minds until it's needed
    Some people earn, learn and eloquently speak it
    Some people hate it and all it's counterparts
    You can find it behind Thou shalt and Thou art
    Before then it was written on walls and tablets
    and today only 9 divine minds have it
    You can't preach it or believe it
    decode or decieve it
    we know we can achieve it
    if we study and read it
    silence will release it
    from that dark and bottomless pit
    Some hear it and say, "I don't believe that ish."
    So, less of IT means more of THAT
    IT is a FACT and THAT is wack
    only my opinion "I'll be right back..."
    For real, I had to go use it.
    It's hard to put it in music or even a poem
    Say, uh, "Outside it's raining." See what i'm sayin'?
    Okay, okay i'm done. Here the silence comes
    Just waiting for the next beat from the eardrum
    You gonna answer that?[/

    Silence does have a way of being strongly felt, it can bring both ease and pain. Posed on point.

    Your flo goes on and on....
    I don't think there's anything you can't
    write about. SILIENCE....
    Sometimes saying nothing speaks volumes.
    Excellent Scribe!


    Much Luv
