    when all the bullets freeze
    become stoic lazy
    still upon the wind not
    making their ill fated destiny
    will it be too late?
    will the population dwindle to
    zero before bullets
    take lunch....for good
    will trigger fingers cramp
    up and bodies in eyesights
    become things of the past
    will we be able to do as the village
    is supposed to do....
    ...before it's too late?

    the air is putrid enough
    dead stenches of broken
    breached souls cold
    from reality and
    experience.................
    and I'm choking on this
    smell...
    ...........
    of the inability to
    communicate.

    man BV

    i done ordered 4 pairs of 20" high waterproof boots
    2 helmets
    18 survival packets
    400 batteries
    and my lucky charm

    cause you for real soldier
    you ain't nothing to be playing with
    i am a true soldier
    i don't care who leads
    i just want to WIN
    feel me

    you know people ain't gonna snap out of this nonsense until a great catastrophe or when the
    meteor hits

    communication is something that we lack
    i mean look at me people don't want to hear me cause i'm black from the inner city so they pre-judge before even i get a word in

    So'ja,

    For every person that doesn't want to herar your voice there are ten that do. Keep speaking brother and if they still don't hear you we'll give 'em new batteries for their hearing aid. Your voice is powerful that is why many do not want to hear it. What;s that saying? The truth hurts...

    thanks for the words bro

    your words are powerful, blak.

    we may not listen, but for those of us who read--coz they have no one to argue with--they begin to understand the den of damnation we're sitting in.

    i comprehend

    {lifting my voice in unison with yours...that my people might hear the wisdom of what you say}

    One.
