    Some of us dream secret dreams,
    dreams that will not die.
    Dreams that speak of freedom,
    though tears now fill our eyes.
    Some of us have secret thoughts,
    thought's we never speak.
    Thoughts that scare the lame at heart,
    and terrorfy the weak.
    Some of us have secret words,
    with codes built deep within.
    Codes that tell strategic plans,
    to ensure that we win.
    Some of us wear suits all day,
    with nothing but respect...
    and when the darkness falls
    we place a knife around their neck.
    Some of us do all these things,
    and some do even more.
    For nothing terrorfies them like,
    the spook behind the door.

    Mind provoking I must say. Made the reader dig inbetween the lines and understand the real meaning to this. Great work.

    one luv

    Keita,
    Speak on the "Spook Who Sat by the Door"
    it is real......
    even some Native Americans
    after all that has happened
    still hold plans
    Write on...
    we hear...

    Peace and Blessings
