    in my sacred space
    meditating on
    Love Musiq

    words transform and fill my
    spiritual sphere and

    tears drop

    in my sacred ocean I...
    don't budge
    I'm trapped in the
    oceanic arms of the

    sacred one
    re-cleansing places
    sacred spaces
    with...

    teardrops
    I...
    give
    honor
    respect
    pay homage to
    my Afrikan Culture and my
    Ancestors

    Nothing and No one
    will never take that from me
    but...
    being what some call a
    "conscious sistah"
    dressing in garb
    dancing/choreographing
    in afrocentric rhythms to
    djembes and doundouns
    passing on knowledge to
    youth of tomorrow

    didn't keep me from
    death
    drugs
    the streets
    from insanity due to rape
    or hate projected by parents

    ... OR DID IT? ...

    God created the
    heavens and earth and
    He knew that in addition to
    HIM
    these "things" that also bring LIFE would
    keep me spiritually LIFTED and ALIVE
    "YES!!!"

    Teardrops

    incited these thoughts in me
    see...
    I've also realized that there
    IS NO CONTRADICTION
    between
    Christian
    God Loving
    and being
    Afrocentrically centered

    ~Teardrops in my
    sacred space~

    recently in Destee's place
    I read that

    If I write what HE gives me, HE'LL give me what I write

    I wondered later that night
    when the words would come and
    pierce me

    through
    LOVE Musiq he struck

    so I prepare
    and wait
    for

    LOVE=GOD

    Teardrops
