We wait no more.
For the time has come when the
Sick and tired are sick of being tired.
Shedding the old ways of wailing, crying, and begging for change
If only to protect the face,
block the blows and counterpunch the systemic plan to oppress.
Let us pray and protest.. maneuver and manifest
Give a small piece of your sensual soul to the cause
Melodies and maladies,
Singing through the tragedies
Time to set the tone
Hover like drone until time to strike.
Invite movers and shakers to the karamu
Let’s dance and mingle in the moment and rejoice
For we have made a choice
To no longer stand in line and wait
All that we deserve
With gall and nerve
Restrictions fall off like clothes
To the natural, the naturist vibe, I strive for
A deeper meaning of freedom
Rich with meditative, melanated dark matter
Piercing the pineal with sharp sparks from southern skies
The wise follow trinity, take your pick – one, two or three?
Navigating the shadowy past with a matchstick.
Triangles and triads, pyramid schemes and liquid dreams
Inherently passionate…And prepared to stand strong.
Never slowing – forever growing,
Weathering the storm and stillness
Overcoming the illness – the lack of sustenance and substance.
And acknowledging the lack of motion
The pendulum at a stand still
Until YOU and ME – WE Rise up!
With Ra in our eyes.
Rotations in the constellations of life
We, wait …no more.
From door to door, we knock – Hodi! we shout!
Careful – the leeches are lurking Looking and jerking.
Trolling down the boulevard
And into the courtyard.
Announcement: Open doors to all who seek redemption and restitution!
My solution is simple: Cause and effect.
Action turns to reaction then gains traction.
And we wait – no more.
We make many moves under many moons and then soon
Momentum is born and brings a conquering soul into the bright light.
…and there, we find – victory.

I need to reconnect with you all… I’m spiritually suffocating. Forgive me for past missteps. Peace. Ali Ali
