    Making claims and shortening games
    Fouling out and shooting off at the
    mouth.
    Alienation, ALIEN_nation
    AGGRAVATION,AGGRA_vation
    Here we go again
    Running off a friend
    Who came to share they skillz
    But, misery loves company
    and restraining creativity kills
    the soul, the spirit
    don't you get it!
    Everytime we run a poet in the
    ground
    We are putting our artform six
    feet down

    If you can't fulfill it
    Please don't kill it!
    WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE?

    First to Da Street So'ja whom I admire deeply why oh why do you feel me so much in my pieces? Because as my Granny says
    "Spirit will speak to Spirit!"
    To Rich thank you for always encouraging me to stay on the Poetic Battle field and feeling my vibe in the Spirit in which they are intended.
    Alyce you know I love me some you! Thank you for the kind words .
    Mr. Derrick Jay, You, you remind me of someone precious that I know... always ready with a positive flow and a pat on the back!
    And last but certainly not least Brotherman...you and me (eye to eye) ...feeling me! I reached down deep for the sake of poets everywhere who are sometimes burdened by the threats of conformist attitudes. We are artist, creators and what we make is not always understood, or appreciated! But, that surely doesn't mean it is not art! When we learn that we will all grow and go to the next level. Be yo self!
    I love you all
    all the time!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSES!
    AND MAY PEACE ABOUND!
