I stand high above, looking down on this earth...
the place where my mothers and sisters gave birth.
I smile sometimes and even wonder why,
just before I notice the tears in my eyes.
I lie to myself and say that all is okay,
just to awaken to another white day.

I try to convince myself that we're really doing fine,
but this illusion I see is like the bum drinking wine.
On the surface our benzo and little bling bling,
compared to our reality don't mean a d@mn thing.
Internally we're ill and the doctor's a little late,
while we sail on the memories of when we were great.

Maybe tomorrow I'll lay down to sleep,
and rise with the best of us, now wouldn't that be deep?

I try to convince myself that we're really doing fine,
buy this illusion I see is like the bum drinking wine.
On the surface our benzo and little bling bling,
compared to our reality don't mean a **** thing.

while we sail on the memories of when we were great.

Peace God.................

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
If the present Kuzma saw the then Kuzma, he would say: Boy, grit your teeth. In twenty years everything will be wrong!
