    The Alter
    Author Jacqueline Amos

    If thy hold thy peace to darkness of the heart.
    The harden of the rock ,
    of thy foundation shall surely die.
    Servants that sings its own rules,
    shall mold away and die.
    Thy shall not hold thy peace of righteousness ,
    thy darkness shall no longer sanctions thy truth.
    Decaying of a world order which refuse to confess.
    Wombs of earth validated by the scorns of revenges,
    Hostage to the devils revenge.
    The Abomination of earth bows to a different high.

    Immersions in a transformations,
    of corrupt values of individuality ,
    weeping that the soul has no strength of its own.


    Oh thou face is covered with sand,
    as I shield from the breeze,
    that drifts across my plantations ,
    of history documented the curse of the soul man.
    Atonement of spirituality growth,
    internal an external, circle of life has stopped ,
    360 degrees of equations ,
    that has rusted within the circles of life.

    Shrines, and temples ,
    bestowed upon fruitful worlds,
    the devil has convicted,
    my fathers house upon the universe,
    of salvation there is no sanctuary that I may pray.


    I stand before God,
    in the ancient memories,
    of a better day.
    Psychological lynching, activist,
    only expressions for self, I revolutionist.

    I Ancient Dust of the alter,
    cry out in disbelief, entrapment of Satan beliefs.
    Extermination, Hate me be me,
    Society program to destruct.
    Betrayal by a place called earth.
    I the ancient dust cry no more: I
    have return to claim my rightful place,
    cry not for me, cry for the world,
    as it self destruct. Trampling on creations,
    of the ancient dust.



    Oh the light that shines ,
    among the diamonds and pearls, sacred places,
    visualizations, emotional, revolutions, meditations.
    A people cannot manifest a hero until he merits his status whether by mask are soul.

    and you know all that stuff seems to be caused by MAN
    himself

    it's all about survival
    it's the bottom denominator

    not everyone can understand it's better for us to get along then be divided

    great piece poet

    the scars of the past remain
