    Metaphoric particles create mental blizzards
    Standing knee-deep in abstract flakes
    Using the pen and pad as my sleigh
    Elevating my mind…..
    I take on the form of a wizard
    The wan glides effortlessly across
    the page firing off rounds in this
    Mental war I’ve waged.
    Covert operations of lyrical piracy
    stealthily try and copy the
    visions I see,
    their eyes loose focus,
    equilibrium shot down
    amidst this verbal hocus-pocus
    of castin spells and
    spitin tales of
    the futuristic, revelations both
    cosmic and mystic
    like the phoenix,
    I too have risen from the flames of hell
    Putting your conscience to the test
    as I make manifest what
    Nostradamus professed to know quite well

    Humble Thanks to you all. I feel blessed to be amongst such dignified artists. " Let us come together, laugh together, and cry together, and when it's all said and done, through strength we are one, so as we may live, we die together.
