    Concentrated Flames,
    tamed by refined skin,
    a kin, elevated from within,
    a power, suppressed
    by monumental cowards,
    sent to devour,
    Alexander ate the great,
    defaced the nostrils of our race,
    and misplaced our name,
    yet our frame remains,
    on God’s primary stage,
    for we were made plague resilient,
    ordained by Hieroglyphics,
    adorned with amulets-
    luxurious lapis lazuli-
    adept men admired
    mirrored images conjoined to mirages;
    serene scenes set on nilotic dreams,
    but complexities intervened
    inundating the pristine.
    mystiques faded,
    philosophers’ stoned.
    phobic doubters tore the left eyes
    bedazzled by Ma’at’s thematic sequence.
    her medic didn’t care
    as much as she Thoth.
    she scoffed,
    laughed,
    coughed and wheezed
    in her coffin,
    ravaged
    by the bandits
    who left a trail of torn bandages
    records and libraries
    manuscripts.
    unappeased
    by the upheaval
    of a lavish land
    and culture
    now in pieces
    like the people
    breathing deep from the diaphragm
    inhaling the past
    we breath
    in the present.

    Much has been done to us by those who sought to rob us of our greatness. Yet, our great essence cannot be taken away. Fabulous write poet.

    See inside ya soul

    Be congradulating

    Stormy one's life

    Yet sweet in the basins

    Saturated like be tha image of a raisin

    Powerful

    Clearly hearing the words you be precipitating

    Gotta new beat
    When I feel the heat

    So elating

    Bounce back

    Dance wit me

    Soul soul

    Fresh debating

    Story told

    Misrepresentation

    Dat's the flow

    Knowin ya mind

    Past fire

    So disinigratin

    Mad flow... luvin ya

    D.S.
