    if with what I write I can put
    a "damnnn" or a "I can dig it"
    in the thoughts of a reader
    then I have done what artists
    intend to do

    if i can put you so close to my tears
    and you can feel the moisture
    on your cheek
    then I have done what artists intend
    to do

    if i can make your emotions skip
    two beats, mouth water
    or just envision a blakman and woman
    making love by myy words
    then I have done what artists intend
    to do

    if i can put you into the palm
    of a raging blak fist and have you
    feel the fire that's in my soul
    for my people
    then I have done what artists intend to
    do

    if i can make that lightbulb in your mind
    light up and show you a different way
    or something new then i have done
    what an artist intends to do

    I have moved you
    I have provoked you
    I have through words evoked
    a thought that makes you stop...
    and admire silence to understand
    it's inherent gift to thinking
    then i have done what an
    artists intends to do.

    We as artist owe it to the reader to try and move them to a place where they've been but gotten there by a different route. We owe it to our craft to try and perfect it, with the understanding that perfection will never be reached yet we press on. I thank you all for your continued support and love like no other. You all have mine. Let us read, write and continue to learn about our craft and move the masses.

    Your Brother blak

    In ancient times

    Scribes were as important as Nobility. They were the educated, the learned, the recorders of history. It is a blessing, a gift, to be so chosen. And there is a responsibility that we have to bring the truth, as the Spirit moves.

    I agree with what you've said. And as I've read the posts on why we write poetry, it has been confirmed in my heart. There are no self-appointed scribes here...anything else isn't soul induced and insincere.

    The last thing you said here, Blak, is something that for me, is the MOST important of all... that we read and write and continue to LEARN ABOUT OUR CRAFT! Natural talent is one thing; blending it with pure inspiration and knowledge of the art... is of the Divine.

    Thank you for this...and excuse me for talking so much. This is close to my heart.

    Well spoken as always poet, Once again you have eloquently expressed the sentiments of the many and given voice to inexpressible thought.
