    Illuminating the terrain
    upon which the oral
    is deployed
    when the candle grows dim
    and the oxygen is thin
    skewing vision and perspective

    the battle field though
    marked and clear provides
    exceptional camouflage for
    honesty misquoted and misplaced

    flame throwers
    backfire and cause self mutilation

    while the shield of calm allows dignity to survive

    but

    in the end
    victor and victim claim the same prize

    the shield of calm allows dignity to survive ...

    i'm liking that, yo'...
    wisdom shines in he whose tongue is under control.
    ya gotz ta know when to shut up and listen.

    thanks for the blessing,

    peace.

    I cut this piece way down to allow for more ambiguity of thought and to see that you still feel me exactly (make love not War) "GA_Sunshine" especially, just makes a bro worm inside.
    baller thanks for your read and comment

    much luv and appreciation
