    Some folks got nothing but time on their hands.
    To speak of non-revolution and of empty demands.
    Worried about who is getting credit for this and that.
    Don't know the difference between a Dog and a Cat.
    Page after page of unrelenting rage, nothing to give in
    the final stage.
    So much time for spewing venom.
    Make me thing they got nothing good in 'em!

    Some folks think they have all the answers at 25 and 30,
    haven't even got their hands dirty.
    Living the legacy of Martin and Malcolm.
    The year 2000 slaves , forgetting they walk on the road we
    did pave.
    Sitting in cyber demanding a voice, when it is the blood of
    the martyred that gave them a choice.
    Day after day we are in Spiritual warfare.
    And care if you dare, cause these non-revolutionist will
    take you there.

    Some folks give themselves proud names and posture, claiming
    to have all the answers...showboats and mind-limbo dancers.
    Swaying to their own beat, never really moving their feet, sitting
    in high moral judgement.
    The "Truth" will be revealed in time, and it won't be man, it will
    be Heaven sent.
    Taking the time to recognize greatness that came before us.
    Your's and my definition of JUST-US!
    "We fight not against flesh and blood ..." says the good book.
    Take that mote out your eye and have a real good look.

    Some folks have all day to sit and to cypher, non-revolutionary
    rhetoric and witty mindless banter.
    Ya sniffin on something or is it what's in your decanter?
    Sad how we can't seem to get together these days, with out
    someone taking shnit all the way!
    Peace will come when we know what to do with it.
    That's not a lot, but I know a little bit...
    Doubting the progress of a movement that made you.
    Sad cause the elders can see right through you.
    Making your way to the altar of self righteousness...
    When the time comes can you even
    pass the test?

    Some folks can talk til the cows come home, and you know
    what a dogs does when you give him a bone!
    Critical thinking is at an all time low.
    They don't know a thing they just think that they know.
    A true mark of wisdom is knowing what you don't know!
    Hoping that in time they will open their narrow minds and
    really grow.
    So I pray for them all the "Stuck on stupid and can't get off dumb"!
    I don't know everything but I sure know some.
    I came from a heritage that put up and didn't shut up.
    Were way makers and earth shakers and made waves to carry
    us safely to the next rung.
    Some folks think that knowing some basic facts gives them license
    to put other's off tracks.
    Disrespecting , neighborhood neglecting, soul rejecting mouth pieces
    with no real kingdom to reign.
    So they reinvent themselves with a Positive name...

    SOME
    FOLKS...are just a "LOST CAUSE"

    Thank you my sista's of the pen!

    I so appreciate your words and your reading.
    Dialogue is what is necessary for change to begin...
    But we must start from a place of mutual respect, both
    for the Past and the Present, so we can face the Future
    on one accord..
    Blessings On Your House!

    U think that much about me 2 write a piece about me?

    I'm so very flattered.

    Page after page of unrelenting rage, huh, started by whom?

    Definitely not me.

    You're so angry with my words that U have 2 spend all your time trying 2 think of a reply.

    Okay, so I'm only 30, but I ve gone through more than the average 50 year old, my sister

    True, I walk on the streets that my older generation paved, but I'm also cleaning up the mess that y'all made.

    Give me 1 example of where I said I had all the answers?

    How can we unite when some people always want 2 fight against someone trying 2 speak their mind?

    There have always been 2 type of black people in this land, the house servant & the field hand.

    The turn the other cheek, Martin followers, and the By any means necessary Malik(Malcolm X) followers.

    I am proud 2 be the latter, U my dear, angry, hateful sister are the former.

    Since U know it all, tell me what type of mind composes a piece biting their brother's or sister's heads off, just because of what they believe?

    If U don't have the answer, read your piece again.

    Peace, really.

    I liked this flo...
    i may be young.. but i have an old soul...
    sometimes the truth will hurt..there are people out there that do
    think they know it all...long as they have something to back
    up what they say, mo power to them... Critisism may be
    a persons gain... i can agree with both of what yaw said...
    I don't think this is any of my business
    but i feel the tension...PositiveMind was speakin the truth...
    I may not kno him but a message was sent thro him...it may
    came on strong but we can't condemn the speaker...
    some may not agree but facts were facts... some opinions
    may have came from facts in order to
    gather those facts...thats like if some one hates
    eatin carrots but know its good for them...

    GOD BLESS :kiss:

    NICE FLOW

    THAT WAS A NICE FLOW
    U SHOULDNT DOWN PEOPLE U DON'T KNOW
    POETRY IS A GIFT GIVEN TO SPEAK ON HOW U FEEL
    TIS NOT UP TO US TO TELL THE WRITER THAT WHAT THEY FEEL IS NOT REAL
    WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCES
    SOME BETTER THEN THE NEXT
    SOME WORSE THEN ALL THE REST
    POETRY IS NOT A RELIGION
    IT DOESN'T COME DOWN TO A FINAL DECISION
    BELIEVE WHAT I BELIEVE
    NO U HAVE TO BELIEVE ME
    WE ALL HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON HERE ON DESTEE
    THAT IS OUR LOVE AND PASSION OF POETRY
    IT'S MEANT TO EXPRESS OUR EMOTIONS DESIRES FANTASIES AND PASSIONS
    NOT TO BASH ONE ANOTHER AND TRY TO TEACH THE YOUNG
    YOUR LIFE LEARNED LESSON
    THROUGH ALL THE STRUGGLES AND EVERYTHING WE SO CALLED OVERCOME
    THROUGH THE WORDS THAT WERE SPOKEN I CAN'T SEE IT NOT ONE..
    SO TELL ME
    HAVE WE REALLY OVER COME?
    IT'S A STRUGGLE IT'S A FIGHT SO IT'S HARD NOT TO BE STUCK ON DUMB
    WE DO THE BEST WE CAN
    ON HOW TO UNDERSTAND
    I FEEL YOU MY SISTAH BUT...
    I ALSO FEEL MY MAN...
    POETRY......
    JUST AGREE TO DISAGREE....
