    Through da mindset of stilliness
    of a distant in plain view
    standing there in silent secrecy
    a determination of explosion set in
    as the eyez hold truth & reality
    accomplishing all impossibilities
    confidence wasn't grand beside
    the self -esteem of da river dam
    meanings pours relentlessly

    Watching my people fall capsided
    from own destruction and sins
    bottled up pity and self doubt
    became the hidden burdden
    yet i know from peace that our block
    has made a change a new beginning
    in the awareness through our blackness
    as we shift by no limitation
    despite the superficial notions upon us

    I find tranquility from my determination
    to suceed all odds before me, against me
    it is by my faith and will that i stand here
    beyond mental captivity or captured
    in what evils lurks in my sail
    when the isle was lit by crimson rays
    i didn't know which way to turn
    until i gave a smile upon my people
    as peace covered the land in my mind
    it was TRANQUILITY .

    Ever see a ball in rolling motion? ..Once in motion, it rolls until something interferes with it, Peace and calm ..Is your ball in motion, your Spirit will protect that roll!

    Rich this piece took me on a smooth roller coaster ride ( i know you are thinking that doesn't make much sense). The hope and determination you displayed in the beginning took me on an anticipative high. And the serene ending put it all in place. Excellent piece!
