    This is an interpretation of a dream I had, long story.


    I've got 2 close my windows.
    Must be sure 2 secure my temple.
    Can't allow evil forces from outside 2 gain access into my innermost chambers.
    I've got 2 protect my sanctuary from any external dangers.

    Therefore I draw the shutters & latch the bolts.
    Stand watch like brother Malcolm in the picture that everyone knows.
    I've got 2 keep my temple's windows closed.
    The only true way 2 keep my mental controlled.
    Carefully choose who holds a seat within my cipher.
    I don't want a Judas Iscariot 2 betray me the same way the Christ was.
    It's much easier 4 someone 2 get money from me than it is 4 them 2 get my trust.
    I must keep the drama in my life at a minimum.
    So my temple's protected from adversaries whenever the main one keeps
    sendin 'em.
    There are slots in my windows large enuf 2 insert rifle muzzles thru 4
    defendin 'em.

    And I'll bust shots with no hesitation if one threatens my salvation.
    Then slide the airtight covers shut cuz malicious intentions have been known
    2 slip thru the tiniest cracks.
    Causing the most humble of minds 2 react.
    So the windows of my temple must remain latched.
    Allowing only JAH's light 2 shine thru the stained glass.

    RIGHT, we have to be vigilant; putting on the full armour of JAH.

    I enjoyed reading this.

    This reads like someone who has been burned before, and wants to ensure that it doesn't happen again. Thank goodness we can trust God's light to shine in. You posed this dream quite clearly poet, well written scribe.

    Well I see some lotto numbers in this joint the 222 and the 424! Nah for real though this is powerfully said. I really like the reference to Malcolm X by the window guarding his house from the evildoers at bay. I love that Movie! I have to give you mad congrats on your wording and great ending. The stained glass at the end was masterfully done. Altogether brilliant work of words Positive Mindset!

    Hi PositiveMindset
    Well felt peace brother. Sometimes
    we have to close the doors tight
    So that once they are open
    Watch Out and Beware
    Keep spilling brother
    Ver deep , loving it

    Peace~N~Love
