      The Dead Are Not Dead...


      Hearing things more than beings,

      listening to the voice of fire,

      the voice of water.

      Hearing in wind the weeping bushes,

      sighs of our forefathers.



      The dead are never gone:

      they are in the shadows.

      The dead are not in earth:

      they're in the rustling tree,

      the groaning wood,

      water that runs,

      water that sleeps,

      they're in the hut, in the crowd,

      the dead are not dead.



      The dead are never gone,

      they're in the breast of a woman,

      they're in the crying child,

      in the flaming firebrand.

      The dead are not in earth:

      they're in the dying fire,

      the weeping grasses,

      whimpering rocks,

      they're in the forest, they're in the house,

      the dead are not dead.

      Thumbs up The DEAD

      The DEAD

      What a thought to behold
      The DEAD?
      Hmm? May I speak so bold?
      As boldly as the DEAD?

      They have allowed a FEW access
      SO, what is after LIFE?
      I have some idea I must confess
      And hope the answer, little misery and strife

      Hell is not what chu think and Heaven ain't either
      God overstands what he did
      He knows we're weaker
      On life, you don't have to bid

      Just live the best you can
      Don't worry bout tomorrow
      Just be a just woman, just man
      When shyt fails, remember the rainbow

      When I spot a rainbow my day glows
      I remember what was promised
      I take the knocks wid the blows
      And dont get pissed at all the things I missed

      Life is full of shyt
      Yeah, full of briars and thorns
      Sometimes you have to do wid what chu git
      Taxes, discriminations and the Devil's horns

      Stand tall is what I say
      Whip the world the best you can
      Don't cry too much and watch Satan at bay
      Don't Let'em ride, you duh REAL man

      Say the DEAD know nothing?
      I wouldn't buy it if I were you
      I've heard a plenty of times from my king
      I loved him true and I swear he's still my boo

      The End of here is the beginning of where
      I touched him, smelt him, cried on him
      Before he disappeared he smiled, said i'd be there
      Then he kissed me as his light went dim

      Heaven ain't in the sky
      Heaven ain't above your head
      It ain't in some bye and bye
      And the DEAD ain't really DEAD

      You think Dr. Khallid is gone?!!
      Just like THAT!
      Malcolm, Martin and Rosa, blown?
      Their lives tossed in a hat!

      Oh no, LIFE ain't like dat!
      God's got the whole world in his hands
      Every human comes to bat!
      Afterwards comes the bands!

      When you awaken to new life, what will the band be playing?
      Life to you or Death?
      Are you hearing what i'm saying?
      Where will you be standing in your final breath?

      With the DEAD that's all that truly matters when it's over
      This life is ILLUSION and DREAM!
      Will you be a mover, hover or need a cover?
      Or shoot outward like a beam? Heh heh. Yeah, like a beam.

      .."We call the dead, they answer, We call the living, they do not answer. The dry leaves on the earth are dead, crackle when trodden on, whereas green leaves, the living, make no sound when we step on them."


      Saying in Jamaica
      Bockra si mi gun but ing cyaa run
      awl fly chu im bak, ed drop a grung
      eye an brain mi nuh si weh dat tun
      wi bun dem wid tya dem find dem inna drum
      shoot dem a farrin, kill dem a Kingston
      any weh wi fyne dem, dem life aguh done

      That's a very deep poem. The body will die,but the Afrikan spirit is immortal.

      the dead are not dead.



      The dead are never gone,

      they're in the breast of a woman,

      they're in the crying child,

      in the flaming firebrand.

      The dead are not in earth:

      they're in the dying fire,

      the weeping grasses,

      whimpering rocks,

      they're in the forest, they're in the house,

      the dead are not dead.

      All of us may not live to see the higher accomplishment of an African Empire—so strong and powerful, as to compel the respect of mankind, but we in our life-time can so work and act as to make the dream a possibility within another generation.-Marcus Garvey
