    Pardon me if my vernacular
    Is quintessentially spectacular
    For my intentions are bona fide
    Dictation intended to incite pride
    Orchestrated to speak to your soul
    Designed to inspire one to be whole
    So your greatness can be permeated
    Causing ignorance to be terminated
    Security of delusions to be eradicated
    Forcing your mental to be emancipated
    Awakening you to the conscious mind
    To never again accept being defined
    Ruffling feathers to get you to see you
    Try to ensure you can perceive the hues
    Dismantling the contentment of fairytales
    So that your royalty from within is unveiled
    King and Queen I miss us jointly reigning
    Thus for your return I'll keep campaigning
    Till my pen runs dry of all its inspired ink
    Even then I'll keep travailing without a wink

    Sister this drop is past AWESOME!
    Every line, Every_Stanza of it pops.
    I quickly saw the power of each line.
    Kissing within the flow, Both our Kings, and Queens, to reign once more.
    Letting the brothers who lead know. Placed on call for eternity.
    Until the ink is out, not to have breath remain. You will flow.. as ( asimplepoet ) for love.

    This is of all of your work.. I said is awesome.
