    My misconception of reality
    have me backed into a corner of misery. :(
    As I climbed my ladder of goals
    I let the worlds insecurities stop my progress and flow
    but like indy I realized I needed to write
    I had to write
    and it had to be dope
    like the last poem I wrote
    See I need to write cause it's my life
    and through it I fight
    I want to make it out the hood
    With out the shed of more blood:peace:
    No more :uzi: drivebys in the middle of the night
    or livin in the drug infected streets that became my life
    No more thoughts of death
    or worryin when a stray bullet would take me home next
    No more stressin about things
    Cause out the hood it would change
    See I had a dream of becoming all that I wanted to be
    through my :teach: intellectual creativity
    but through all my pretending
    I forgot about what was missin
    I was up all night and up all day
    and I relaized on the inside I was just clay
    molded and shaped by man
    I turned my head away and abandoned God's plan
    I changed my walk and my talk
    and God punished me by taking my thoughts.
    I was down and out with no way to write
    Then God said to me my life is your life
    I stopped what I was doing and looked up.
    And asked God why am I stuck?
    Could I be anything before I knew me?
    NO God answered with authority
    I made you uniquily with a complex identity.
    U are my child and you will be who I want
    and until you understnd you'll forever be stuck.
    :bowdown: I fell to my knees and surrendered until him
    I prayed he'd forgive me and give me another chance
    As I awaited an answer hoping he'd say yes
    He put this pen in my hand and gave me this test.
    He said write for me and:nono: none else
    I know you'll stumble a little but I'll handle the rest.
    you are my child and I carrried you this far
    You've fallen down but you always get back up.
    My child I see your struggle I know your :heart:.
    Count on me for all blessings I give
    Do all things for me and I'll take your emptiness
    I raised my hands and Cried out :cry:
    Thanks you father for sparing my life.

    Sister...
    this was powerful...
    many are called
    few are chosen
    and if you have been
    chosen to write for
    the enlightenment and
    awakening of others...
    it is an honor

    Your work is so wonderful...
    I admire any poet who writes
    with "elevated consciousness"
    and purpose!


    Loved this peace!

    Thank you both so much. since i am poet of the week I wanted to post a new poem that kind of shed light on what happened in the months I took all of my work off the site and wasn't posting. I had a rebirth. So now I want to enlighten people and get thier juices going:lol:. I do this because God gave me a second chance.

    Much love and Respect
