Sister you don’t seem to understand where I am coming from
With my lyrics of revolution and freedom
Is my inspiration any less than yours?
When I recline chin in the palm of my hand
Thoughts whirling in a waterfall
Until they drip marathons of lines across paper
Torrential passion
Whether you be making love
Or I be making war
Pressing for the next cause
Should I disdain you for preferring to speak on soaked draws
Funk, sex, and sweat?
While I would rather get minds wet
Find out what lies between genes X and Y
Instead of access to jeans to part thighs
I stroke your cerebral with creamy words
Impart songs in the key of life unheard
Silky similes slide softly from my lips
Like Victoria Secret of hips
When I engage in this oral affection
Guaranteed to stimulate erection----
No need to slide on protection
I want you to feel and each and every curve of this selection
I French kiss the tips of your neurons
Got your spirit arching more gracefully than a swan
Tongue trailing against the nape of your erotic-neurotic senses
Rendering your soul defenseless
With my pen strokes
My words tickle your throat
Nibble at your earlobe
As I reveal a world of pleasures untold
My epic unfolds
All over you like a summer morning mist
Metaphors melt upon lips
The honey of my wisdom drips
Deep into the essence of your brown skin
Truths so good you would swear it was a sin
I set your soul aflame with whispers of the wind
Peaking passion through poetical promises
The Revolution becomes an all-consuming fire
In the escalated desire for these words to take you higher
Delve deeper than the depths of the Atlantic Ocean
Into your mind motion evoking sensational emotion
Open mic got you open wide
Open eyes and open minds
Revolution is ----
The curve in your smile
The hope to carry you that extra mile
The beauty in your lover’s face
The Gift of God’s grace
Laughter of the soul
Words that make you whole
Holding hands
Making love in golden sands
Keeping the faith
Defining your own destiny and fate
Uplifting your mind
Encouraging your brothers and sisters to shine
It is strength from the heavens above
It is love
It is life
It is the ability to stand and fight
It is you and it is I
It us unified
So please understand that the revolution is no one person or thing
But a scope that is all encompassing
And though we may stand on two different shores
You making love and I making war
There would be no future worth living
If it were not for both of us giving
The deepest and purest sentiments of our souls and hearts
To the beauty of these arts
It is truly one…….

Now **** Legacy that is a line of all lines. I've written numerous times on other replies that there is always one or two lines that sum up a piece. For me that was it.

I'm living in the "Minneapple" ,but my HOME is Detroit, the "D". 7 mile and Pennington. What part of the "D" you reside?
