    Lurk

    There’s a million points of view and I’m keeping mine focal

    Expansion of the mind – it needs to be global

    You can search and find but if only looking local

    You’ll suppress your mind like the kind who control the total



    Live and let die – do more than just exist

    Cherish all the love- savor life’s kiss

    Your body’s just the shell which holds your conscienceness

    Experience pain – love- lost- and pure bliss



    I keep my hat down walkin’ New York- talkin’ the talk

    And laugh loud when there’s a spark – all in my heart

    I chalk the negativity and erase it’s sad display

    For I can’t allow the bull**** to take away my day



    I play all my cards never keepin’ them hidden

    For those who hide their scars never really end up livin’

    Your body is the temple – your mind is the prison

    Knowledge is the key that will free your known existence



    I’ve been spreading love for years -Wiping clean their tears

    Meeting angels in the bars drinking from some empty beers

    And I once shook the hand of a self described leader

    Who preached the word of “God” but never looked deeper



    I traveled long and short- I traveled far and wide

    What I learned is most people are all the same inside

    We don’t want war – we want peace and change

    It happens with YOU first- not Obama or U.S.A


    DSS

    I see you there inside the concrete cubicle
    no fanfare for life to what you consider suitable
    a mule with no conscious is why they ridicule
    our fear of death makes us look pitiful

    first it was village to village then country to country
    now it’s planet to planet
    few really understand it
    this has nothing to do with how you’re handlin'
    this is a global con-struck
    where we hate women to be women
    and men be men again

    see we’re on the clock
    2012 but there nothing to fear
    As long as u know when there is a earthquake
    There are aftershocks
    And your psyche can’t be contained by master locks
    And what does your scripture say what do once
    The pastor drops

    Flock thee my little sheep
    Your life comes cheap
    The matrix defines what you speak
    We NOW reached a NEW saga

    And oh yea

    IT RUNS DEEP!

    Thanks for the genuine love..after all the years we've known each other , this is our first poetry collab..

    We've done a few songs together, but sitting down to write something deep we both feel the same about was very satisfying..

    Thanks again for taking the time to check it out

    Peace and love

    You both threw the flow down here.
    This is awesome.

    I was thinking about how we used to get this in open mic chat..

    Great Collab Brothers.
