    Y'all goin'
    and flowin'
    i'd be remiss if i didn't say
    i wuz born a while ago not no way close to yesterday
    i tries to avoid bein' fooled
    so i'll listen and be schooled
    Thas how i learned that i can flow
    never even thought 'bout this befo'
    til' i peeped you youngbloods up in this room
    an' like the yarn upon the loom
    began to knit
    and write the writ
    i lik-ed what y'all was doing
    inside my soul started to brewin'
    a new way for me to spit my stuff
    up to now i can't git enough
    i like to preach
    teach
    reach
    and truly to beseech
    folks to be all they can be
    to travel and see all they can see
    to really take the charge
    to git on to the large
    loose the chains that bind'em
    leave slave ways behind'em
    git it on to liberation
    spit on...
    it's a brand new nation
    talkin'
    an' walkin'
    makin' words take on form
    soundin' the alarm
    All Praises due
    to wordz and flowz
    to the Creator of me and you
    and the places where flowin' growz

    So many flavas of flows inspire us in so many ways. Liked the way you put this all together.
