    Everyone has a void to shape
    An address outside of time space

    And I have made a reservation for two

    A starry night, with candlelight
    As we discuss the making of you

    Holding on and letting go all in one lifetime
    My time with you so instant

    My love for you persistent

    I was so sure and certain
    And bold in my assertion

    That you were looking for me

    But only out of necessity
    Did you come to my inner city

    And found that I found you a God
    And you replaced your man hood with self pity

    What can be has always been
    Waiting

    And met with disappointment at the door
    The intent to maintain that which is not

    I could never retaliate with hate
    With the totality of love I draw the void in my heart

    The silence to hear a voice still distant
    And the arrogance that it is I that stagnates

    For the eternal black man
    In eons hasn't learned

    He is God and the crown of life him awaits

    Still a void your space
    As you accept a place
    Of past and dove straight in

    But if you neglect to see the future of you
    That is the only time you would have created a sin

    A very powerfully penned and poignant piece here! :toast:

    It's tone, for me, was advisory yet supportive.


    THESE were the parts which struck me most:


    and the ending...
