    O… BLAK Man…
    In a world intent on the destruction of thee…
    a fading history clings to your inner sanctity
    Fading…and….gradually………dissipating…
    Where do WE… stand?
    Hand in hand?
    Because it is evident in your eyes
    That this world, this life, this time… has let you down
    The pain… the despondency,
    the..….. “break you down to the ground and strip you of the strength you have found”
    it has all broken you down
    ………………………………down
    ………………………………………..down

    and…inside
    you are torn
    Inside… you are worn
    And your walls bury you alive…
    Where NO ONE can touch you
    …giving a false sense of security
    You feel NO ONE can harm you
    NO ONE can hurt you
    Or seek to deceive you
    Burden or bereave you
    of that which you have managed to re-claim
    and maintain
    But…
    ……………………

    O… BLAK man
    Where do WE… stand?
    Outside your fortress of success
    Is there any room for…interest?
    As your lighted core is…
    ….shrouded
    …………clouded
    ……………and subdued
    by all the madness your tender soul has been through
    the brutality of “THAT”……which is no better explained
    but leaves a trail of soul dissolving degradation and …”PAIN”
    Paralyzing… Paralyzing… Paralyzing …”PAIN”
    the intensity of “THAT”……which is no better explained
    but leaves you blinded with…”dismay”
    Disappointing, disheartening, disemboweling….”dismay”
    …the same tomorrow…. as yesterday…is now today?
    As the WALLS begin to form and solidify…with decay


    O… BLAK man
    O…………….my beautiful…….. strong BLAK man
    …Make me understand…
    Where do WE… stand?
    As I lay my hands on your walls
    ………………..my hands on your walls
    ……………………..my hands on your walls
    I deny myself of “ALL”…
    I lay my… “EVERYTHING”… at the feet of your walls…

    My audacious annealing armor… I risk

    My substantial stone-cold shield…I risk

    My proud persistent protection…I risk

    My… “EVERYTHING”…

    I….

    Risk…

    It all………..


    for a glimpse of …the King…behind the walls
    Behind the mortar, brick and stone faced intentions
    I risk my trembling…
    terrified-at-your-unknown-reaction and apprehensions
    Battered, broken and bruised
    Wounded and tattered and used
    If this is what I must suffer…in attempts to gain access…to…you
    I WILL do what I must do…
    …………to save you
    ……………….to love you
    …………………..to finally touch…the you…that is you

    O…Bold Beautiful BLAK man…
    If I may be … permitted to
    drink from your cup of sorrow and bear this pain with you
    If I may be … permitted to
    soothe the fragility of a King and offer healing to you
    The sacrifice of my entity splayed upon an altar…for you
    ALL THESE THINGS
    And these things alone
    I offer in exchange for you to see…
    ~ Me ~ Your Queen
    as I risk… my insecurities…
    To step behind the fortresses
    And into the holy of holies…
    Which is your lovely lighted evanescence…

    Oh… BLAK man
    Though marred by your past endurances, I come to you

    At the risk of heartbreak and sorrow, I come to you

    At the risk of dismal rejection and humiliation, I come to you

    I come to you, I come to you…I come to receive you

    At the risk of absolute renouncement and abject humility, I come to thee


    O… BLAK man…
    Can you not see?
    In the recesses of my existence
    I can never be whole
    Without thee…

    I lay my hands upon your walls…and bring them under my command…
    “Come down…
    ………….Come down
    ………………….Come down and release This King…to Love his Queen ~ Eternally”
    So that WE…may stand Hand and Hand…Free

    :love: :love: :love:
    umph, umph, umph
    there really is no singular accolade I could give to this...

    I understand through this magnificent song sung by Your Majesty's...
    I understand why the Blak man cannot fail, despite himself for you will not allow him...
    we have prevailed where all others faced with the same adversity has failed and its simply because of you...

    Know This...YOU ARE LOVED :heart: :heart: :heart:

    ALL HAIL!!!
    For wisdom has spoken from the highest plane of spirit life...

    What! ...yall sung this piece in "harmony"?...tell me it ain't so, ...in that case, "Don't :nono: lose your day job"
    (Oop's sorry bout that, just had to get the hanks off me first :laugh: )

    I understand that this piece is not a poem...but "Reality" ...smh
    I've said over and over again, "Women", let's save our (hidden) Kings,
    I understand that "Man...can't kill...Man" (mentally), women can. Surely this "mind blowing poem"...is for our Kings,
    *oh my god, this piece is deep*​
    But, collectively...we can bring them forth, without effort or force.
    A very awesome piece has been laided here...what else can I say?...except...
    It's a lightening and thunderous piece...

    Keep striking lightening .... :spinstar: Triniti :spinstar:
    Keep striking thunder... :spinstar: Sage :spinstar:
    We hear you, ...and we're on our way to save/bring back our "Kings" ...who's been lost in the sauce.
    thanks a lot.
