Sun flames burnt the soles of my feet
as I walk towards the light of forever,
barefoot and hungry.
Distance becomes time.
Time becomes the weight of my woes
don’t forget my burnt toes.
Trying to be slick,
but can’t kick the habit of searching…
Seeking out the knowledge of tomorrow
that was born yesterday
making for a brighter today,
which was actually last Friday at Jumuah
Subliminal messages of the mind
tend to strengthen what’s already mine
Growing hair that’s faded
Making niggas jaded of dred-locked,
hieroglyphic symbols engraved under the title…
Know Thy Self!
The scrawl on the wall tells a tale
of tribe of conscious pyramid building Kings and Queens
crowned with the stars planetary skies.
Majestic ties of kinship
Reach 360 degrees back in our time
Creating a flawless sphere that encompasses the great minds
of Jesus, Muhammad, Malcolm, and Martin.
The blood of heredity, legendary men and women
ride the ruby walling of my veins
enhancing the beating of this warriors heart.
The sounds vibrate and shake my chest cavity
like twelve-inch speakers
Beat, Beat, Beatin’…
Thump, Thump, Thumpin’…
Until the rearview mirror falls from the windshield of life
shattering aspired aspirations.
