    I was inspired by a poem by Taalam Acey off of his CD Changing Faces, so if it some what sounds close to what he said on there it is because Taalam Acey is a big influence on me. But then so are all the poets in the Spoken word circle. Big up to All the slam poets that are getting ready for Nationals in Austin, TX. See you all there....

    What if God
    Open up the gates of Hell
    And all the demons run up towards heaven
    Making Angels contemplate
    Their divine conception
    Of what really is gods plan

    And what if Adam
    Never would have
    Eaten the fruit
    That condemns man for eternity
    Would we still be
    Living in a world of scrutiny

    And what if Moses
    Really never parted the red sea
    And never made it
    To the mountain
    To receive the 10 commandments
    Would we still believe

    And what if Abraham
    Never had 2 sons
    And Ishmael and Ezekiel
    Would have never been born
    Would we still have
    Christian fighting Muslims
    In a religious war

    And what if Judas
    Never would have
    Betrayed Jesus
    Would Jesus still
    Have been Crucified
    And taking all
    Of Mans sin on his shoulder

    What if poets where the messengers
    Of gods spoken word
    And Politicians and Preachers
    Where just
    figures of oblivions
    Would we still trust
    What they would tell us

    After all what if everything
    That I was saying was true
    And each one of us
    At least once in our lives
    Gave true respect
    To one another
    Wouldn’t that be grand

    But the reality of this facility
    Is this we are not of bondage
    Or better yet slaves
    We are people
    Who breath this fake crap
    Each and every day
    Still looking for our savor​

    This might be my last piece on Destee.com. Not because anyone offended me or said anything to me but because it seems like I just don't have enough time in my already busy schedule. However if you want to keep up with my writings you can go to www.myspace.com/defiantson I have been doing a lot of shows and slams lately. So I am going to focus more on those performances then. Just putting up some of my poems on destee.com. You all will be missed but I have to say peace and blessings. I will keep my account open so I can read some of y'alls poems and I might even comment on them. Who knows I might in the future even post one. But as for right now I will be taking a break from destee.com

    Peace and Blessings
