    I wish I could but...
    To Be Honest...
    I don't give two cents about 911...
    not because of the innocent lives lost
    God bless the spirits...
    but governmental indiscretions and
    fallacy laden foreign policies
    don't fly beneath my mental radar...
    everyone should have saw it coming
    ...Vietnam...Los Angeles...Isreal/Palestine...
    Detroit...Cuba...see China's is/was/is a commmunist
    government but uncle scam has not shut off trade
    with them...hmmm...economics...

    To Be Honest...
    I don't pledge allegiance to that
    rag old glory cause i know the real story...
    kidnapping...pillaging...deceit...police brutality...
    slave quarter rapes...innocent despite the video tapes...
    theivery...broken treaties...and designed reservations
    (ghettos)...absence of a signature on the bill for reparations...
    I've grown weary of demonstrations...
    walking with posters is passe' and besides ******'s
    too lay-zay too march if it don't have bass music...
    historical mind control has stole the soul
    (and now sells it on tv as a Monster Jamz cd)

    To Be Honest...
    I understand the constant foot on our necks
    man only respect man who...respects himself...
    and too many busy calling each other ******
    (get my point)...and killing for a reality...
    that isn't even meant for him...wealth...power...
    is reserved for the descendants of forefathers...
    not *******...those in tim-boots and armani suits...
    who don't understand the true game only out for self
    to find within himself / in others the blame of his plight...
    ONE SMALL NOTE: IT'S ALL ABOUT UNITY...

    To Be Honest....To Be Cont'

    this is deep...thought provoking....

    of course i do believe unity or better yet, the lack of ...holds people back....always trying to be better than the next instead of extending a hand to pull a sister/brother up....

    ...to be honest..bless the innocent lives that were lost during the 9/11-yet it pales with the world tragedies which have taken place-take the Rwandan genocide for instance.

    lo'
