...she's gone......

.....thrown from a rooftop.

another
broken body
becoming proof
us humans CAN'T
flap our arms
and fly
even when
high on the
"best" crack
in fact
cocaine
MAYBE
only
dulled the pain
on impact....

...I wonder...
did she have time ?
to see
IT
coming ?
I mean...
did "the fiend"
IN HER
abandon ship and
leave her to face
sudden death
alone ?
...as
impending doom
was CERTAIN
in the seconds it took
from roof
to
pavement...
were those moments
filled with
regret and
thoughts of
her enslavement
to that
HIGH
cost of living dead
...dread filled ritual
full of scraps
and residual
pipe hits
bartering her
physical
intensively critical
mental
a far gone conclusion
now considered a casualty
in her war
to
fill the
NEED
in the end
only
fulfilling
the
dopeman's
GREED.

...KNOWING
the
dopeman
aint gonna
feed
her seeds
when she's
gone...
did
realization
FINALLY
dawn ?
that-
-she was leaving them
ALONE
to be trained
by the
Soldiers of Cocaine
to perpetuate pain
main aim
to maim
FOR GAIN
and aim
needles and
pipes
at swollen arms
and lost lips
at night....
did she SCREAM as she fell ?
did she fight...?

YES !
her body
took flight
from a height that
insured her
passing....

NOW we
stand around
asking
HOW ???

HOW DID IT
HAPPEN ???

well....

there's a rule
I USE..
I suppose

it's true....

YOU DON'T USE DRUGS....


DRUGS USE...




YOU .





REST IN PEACE MICHELLE.

WE LOVE YOU.







On A Continuous Journey

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!
