    Evolution requires
    That we evolve
    Our posture
    Our message
    Our approch
    Our understanding
    What was on it
    A few clicks ago
    May not be in any more
    Nothing
    But G-d
    is constant
    Things are changing
    And if we
    Are going to make it
    We'd best be about
    Rearranging
    To stay complete
    Avoid
    Becoming OB-SO-LETE
    IR-Re-VALENT
    Lost
    In the abyss
    "Hip" in our own minds only
    Watching that fade away
    Until one day
    We have to admit
    We are in reality
    ONE BIG MESS​

    Never too old or wise to learn a new tune. I liked this scribe about ever evolving to grow.

    This is to the point man- to a great extent 'we' as in black folk- in general, still singing; 'we shall overcome'- sheeit! if we ain't over yet, we'll never come. Feeling this.

    JAH Love is ONE.
