    You are the light at the end of the tunnel
    I heard you in the heartbeats of pregnant mothers
    I heard you in the fierceness of Farrakhan...Tubman..Garvey
    I heard you in Jill Scott...Billie Holiday...
    You have gone on the right path
    Not the path of those who go astray
    Keita you have eaten of the fruit of knowledge
    Cutting it to get to the truth
    You have planted the seeds of this fruit..
    Cultivating trees and gardens in your mind..
    In your seed..that you plant in your queen..
    In the minds of the family of Destee..
    Your intellect feeds like the darkness of the womb..
    Feeds the fetuses
    That built the pyramids,the sphinx
    That endured slavery..that picked cotton
    That fought for the right to vote
    That built the U.S.
    You give the Black community hope
    A flashlight that guides one out of the cave of darkness
    The darkness of ignorance
    If knowledge is wealth..
    You have the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow..
    K...the 11 th letter of the alphabet...11 laws of Maat
    E.. letter 5...5 the lucky number in the Buddhist religion
    I... letter 9...9 months for a human to form..9 planets in the solar system
    T...letter 20...T is for Truth
    A...letter 1...only one God...only one you..loyality to both

    Much love to you brother Keita for your knowledge

    What a scribe celebrating the knowledge and wisdom of one of our own. I'm sure the brotha will appreciate such kindness. Well written piece.
