    When we Were Heroes

    When we were heroes
    We had a tribe
    To call our own

    We were the sun
    Sent unto the sons
    Of Kingdoms
    Swept away
    By distant moons

    When we were heroes
    A woman's chastity
    was cradled in our arms
    And when she gave us blood
    Her children suckled at her bosom

    When we were heroes
    Freedom was the
    First name for earth
    And the wall of Berlin
    Was just a stone

    Then
    The walls came tumbling
    Down...down

    And the world
    Sunk further into
    Ground...ground

    Now only the stone
    Remembers the
    Sound...sound

    Of bricks
    Building

    When we were heroes

    When you build monuments to/for your PEOPLE; your MEN, your WOMEN, your CHILDREN, you lay a foundation made from the genius of your mind, and the contents of your heart and soul. Your ARE the rock, my sistah, a true daughter of the Cornerstone.

    Outstanding piece!

    take us back to those days
    When We Were Heroes
    our ear to the stone
    hearing the sounds
    move around
    inside

    Luv'n this Belle

    When I think of stone I think of
    strength,
    carefully constructed,
    absorbing all the crys,laughter,happiness and pain
    through out the existance of the earth...
    such a great piece
