A Shadow passes through my consciousness. My being is alive.
The Shadow flutters, then darts --- Here --- Then quickly gone.
Its leading edge is brightness --- Unimagined.
Its body etched with graduations of light and dark,
grays and smoke, blue-black and pitch.
The undulations of its colors lend subtlety.
Much like that found in the melding colors of the rainbow.
The Shadow is the Ways. The Means. The Sum of my life.
The leading edge? The bright blast of my first slap on the ***.
The first cough of my insolence. The first cry of adventures ahead.
The ripples of gray, of smoke, and blue-black,
mark the tears and the triumphs I’ve absorbed and passed on.
And the journey first thought to be long --- Everlasting.
Has passed with an intake of breath.
Now I stand in the pitch. In the darkest of dark.
My feet at the edge of Eternity’s Vacuity.
And I know, moving forward, with my last weary step;
I’ll again see the blinding brightness --- Unimagined.
The leading edge of My Shadow --- A New Shadow for me.

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!
