    you saw me the other day,
    but because i didn't call your name,
    you never claimed my existence.
    you never took the common courtesy,
    of a hi,
    or even a wave.
    because i'm no longer that rollie pollie,
    making my way through life,
    going so far and stopping.
    but the rocks in life,
    and the thorns in my side,
    proved to nobody but me that i could overcome.
    heavenly Father your grace,
    is sufficient and your mercy unmeasurable,
    but yet and still i sin the sinless sin.
    of what?-- common courtesy,
    that others cease to obtain,
    withold and dispute as common.
    woe to me and my dirt that consumes me,
    in covers and stitched quilts of dust,
    but woe unto the window of strife that suffocates my cause.
    i also rode your shadow yesterday,
    but you brushed me off,
    and claimed me not as a follower.
    try as i might,
    i withstood the storm you rode gutlessly,
    and carried your hidden pride in my back pocket.
    supported you ever step of the way,
    and took what you threw away,
    and recycled it back to you in amounts of gold.
    the elite status of a human,
    de-militarizes the daintiness of your supremeness,
    that captures me in your devilish radiance.
    you see i catered to you,
    like a child destined to do so,
    but once more i was fooled.
    into sacrifying the gratitude,
    you never deserved,
    that you never would have taken even if you did deserved it.
    i had to laugh,
    for crying did nothing but made flood waters higher,
    within my body.
    and i dare not drown myself,
    over a person that ceases to claim me,
    what God has made me.
    i had to think,
    for talking did nothing but made books over worded,
    within bookstore shelves.
    and i dare not out talk my lips,
    for a person that has headphones on their ears,
    when i speak with the tongues of knowledge.
    i had to just pause,
    for going on would be tedious to my health,
    even though i knew that once more i was turning into that rollie pollie by pausing.
    and i dare not risk a perfected tradition,
    to please one--onE--oNE--ONE mind,
    that determined that i am no one's challenge.
    i'm no crack,
    or dope,
    to infect your system with hallucinations.
    i don't even try,
    to intoxicate your very life,
    with my existence.
    because to you i don't exist anyway,
    but it's better that way because,
    to someone else--you don't exist either.
    i sin the sinless sin,
    that was destined for me,
    to love the unlovely.
    my reflection,
    my whole being,
    my cause of creation.
    my cause to,
    become to someone i don't know,
    someone that somebody will know.
    but it's better that way because,
    to someone else--you don't exist either.
    i just wish,
    i just -------------------------------WISH!
    that it wasn't me.
    you saw me the other day,
    but because i didn't call your name,
    you never claimed my existence.
    but alls well that ends well,
    but i've only begun to become,
    someone to me........ :car:

    Very Nice. This flowed like a sermon , I thought I had entered a silent prayer session, but I couldn't stop listening because of its relevancy. The flow was fantastic and gripping. $$RICH is right, this is deep.

    thank you for the love shown fam, sometimes at the points in life when we can't seem to place ourselves above others is the time when we can't seem to place ourselves anywhere, so begin to know yourself and then and only then will you be able to look beyond a place that can't be physcially filled with yourself, but with the love you obtain towards others.....thank you again fam...PeAcE
