    zoom by zoom out ,
    round the world-then i'm out.
    out to the outer limits of the mind in unknown kingdoms.
    where the only thing i give,
    is words of freedom.

    lightly floating on air,
    feelin' like a feather ridin' the wind and my passenger is air.
    seeing things i've yet to know.
    continuing my journey,
    knowing not where i will go.

    then i'm dropped from the sky,
    like raindrops piercing my uncleansed soul--from the sky.
    telling all i see.
    that there is more to this old world,
    than will ever be.

    they laugh at me cuz i'm young,
    and appear to know nothing--bcuz i'm still young.
    i laugh along with them.
    cuz i know that what i know- is real,
    and i dare not hit them.

    Bcuz.....

    in the middle of dispair,
    in all my shattered pieces of life called dispair.
    i find a way to find myself.
    through lyrics of old and new,
    where destee's family is my only help.

    help to get away,
    from the things that ppl pile on me--so far away.
    walking now in pre historic times eating bread of leaven.
    talking with my master,
    teaching me the shortcuts to get to heaven.

    Then i experience that.....

    my wits are few,
    my love output isn't--but love input is few.
    my eyes decieve the blind.
    by planting mystery seeds,
    in their minds.

    while i try to adjust to the kingdoms,
    which i have never sought to find in my own kingdom.
    i make a deal with someone to be.
    more than i was,
    but no less than me.

    Slowly..........

    as i zoom by zoom out,
    by your face--i'm all cleansed from the inside out.
    i'm too young you say to know how to prepare for lifes test.
    but i have rode the wind-talked with the master,
    and have found how to ace it by my way to express.

    expressing the words and wisdom i recieved,
    in the unknown kingdom-that bid me stay.

    but i loved you (the unlovable) so much,
    that i had to come back and let you know about it.
    come and go with me............................to that kingdom............. :wave:

    Lilcherry this is a awesome journey. A Beautiful journey.Worthy of taking. Holding your hand, while you take us on this ride.

    " make a deal with someone to be.
    more than i was,
    but no less than me. "

    " i'm too young you say to know how to prepare for lifes test.
    but i have rode the wind-talked with the master,
    and have found how to ace it by my way to express. "

    Your well equiped, for the journey. These words are powerful. You keep your wits and continue to let the negative roll off you like water. :spin: Rolling off a ducks back. He doesn't get wet, during a rain of attack. While many around, act like they don't care or have words, they are listening and observing and you are being heard. Keep flowing.

    The key to the kingdom is often said to be hidden within the depths of your own greatest mystery...yourself...but this sista
    poignantly posed :)

    Flame on poet!

    I see you droppin
    verse with
    deep thoughts
    and real experience
    ...love the energy
    and raw emotion
    that flowed through
    this...you gave us
    a little bit of every
    part of you...
    and that was cool...

    Great Read Sis!
