    When does sprit soar?
    She never stopped
    The soul gets caught
    In it’s own reflection
    An insurrection
    Against what God loves
    While spirit soars above all
    Only to fall in love
    Like never and many times before
    A chance to adore another’s soul
    No one controls
    The life God gives
    The gift bearer lives in grace
    No body
    Can sustain the taste of desire
    Some become liars
    Only to themselves
    Dwell in deep pressed
    Holding cells
    Jails created in the mind
    Are the kind
    Only you know how to set yourself free
    Some become a jaded lover
    Who find friends on spiritual plains
    Under covers
    Reality is a physical trip
    A one way ticket
    You might not cum Black
    In fact
    What is true
    Becomes a lay
    Foreplay grounds
    Create sounds
    Although satisfying
    No body really wins
    Playing with themselves…
    Lovers of love so much
    Words become the tender touch
    Stroking an ego
    Can **** you up
    Fallen womb and man leave scars
    Far beyond repair
    Still
    Nothing compared to a spirit broken


    When does spirit soar?
    When the soul ignores the test
    The flesh calls out to take
    Make the mind ache
    Break head strong hard ons
    Deserve to be served
    Mental master baiting
    Can’t tell
    Pass or fail
    The soul only knows how willing
    The soul only knows how well
    You finished?
    While Spirit still soars..
    Thieves steal things
    Which don’t belong to them
    Pretend
    Spirit is not looking
    Caught up in circumstances
    Second chances
    Never had a chance
    So, the third eye
    Is the prize we take in vain
    Pain walks boldly
    Into the heart that lets him in
    Brings Shame
    The two of them
    Siamese twins
    Best friends who feed
    On thought mind greed
    Blame has left
    A rich blood stain
    No body claim to know
    How the soul scarred
    When Spirit was here first
    How does fool’s gold
    Continue to tempt the soul
    Curse all
    That knows love
    Can only love
    What can be love
    When does sprit soar?
    When love becomes more
    Than recycled behaviors
    He say he can’t stand
    From the very hand
    Another lover deals with losing
    Cards laid out flat
    Ace of deception
    Spade
    Bluffing style
    Don’t mean a thing
    To hold on to Kings and Queens
    When deuces are wild
    Every body cheating
    Ain’t no body winning!
    Any body can play by their own rules…
    It’s hard to conceive
    Easier to believe
    The conception of disease
    Underneath bed sheets
    Appeased with
    Body licks
    Tongue kissed
    Hard to be at bliss
    The body feels
    But spirit knows
    A soul that needs to heal
    Can only find
    Peace of mind
    A comfort within
    Be holding out
    The piece that is lost
    Can cost a high price
    For a small slice
    One figure
    Is bigger than a sliver
    Already had
    The whole soul can not be cut
    Spirit seeds sow too deep
    For weeds to pull the roots up
    Spirit grows
    Spirit blooms
    Spirit scents
    Consumes the air
    For those who dare breathe the wind
    Spirit transforms
    High above the Heavens
    Spirit transcends
    For a chance to adore another’s soul
    No one controls
    The life God gives
    It is what we live
    When does spirit soar?
    Always and all ways and all the times before
    Times ten
    Then again and again
    Until the after end…..
    Spirit soars
    Past Heaven high
    Put your Black wings on……
    Have you forgotten how to fly?

    hi Roxanne
    So true indeed the life we live is a gift from God.
    And we should never take it for granted.
    Hoping all our souls can soar with ease.
    Much love


    Peace~N~Love

    We Must...

    Remember who we are
    Remember whom we come from
    We must continue to allow spirit to soar
    Within
    Around
    and through us......
    Always and all ways

    Peace & God Bless Family
