    Let's harness these words
    And use their powers
    To direct enLIGHTenment
    Into our coming hours
    To move the barriers
    Our ememy has set up
    To add nourishment
    To our empty cup
    As a hand up
    To our fallen kin
    Open the doors
    Let prosperity in
    We're just an idea away
    From success
    Alien thinking
    Is supporting the mess
    That has us trapped
    With no way to move on
    Enemy thinking
    Has us on the run
    We've got to change
    Use our natural mind
    Free ourselves
    From Satan and his kind
    If we keep on
    In the same losin’ vein
    The Butt kickin' we'll get
    Will be the same

    "If we keep on doing what we're doing; we're going to keep on getting what we're getting"

    REVOLUTION...is coming !!!
    Brother you have never been more on point, if we're not on the road of "change" ...the :court: continues. We see the "change" comming...in our young...we just don't reconize it...they are in dire need to be directed into more positive directions, instead of the one "MASTER" laid out for us.
    I like where you went with this...

    Yes, this was on point, change is hard, but in the long run going round and round in circles is harder.

    I loved this flow. To get what you have never got you got to do what you have never done. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In 2009 I dare us all to be the catalyst for change.
