The Voice

The Voice was outspoken could care less about retribution, only sought a permanent solution to some of life’s ingrained problems…

To those who wanted to hear undiluted truth, the Voice was smooth as silk, warm like a gigantic quilt that engulfed all their attention…

To those who wanted to know how much truth was being said, the Voice was harsh, stinging, slicing and dicing all the previous foundations that were built and nourished by the People of the Lie…

Daggers of truth, Malcolm lips, the Voice spewed accusations, condemnations at the injustice that still lives in the soul and heart of many people…

Ancient words flew on the wings of the wind, reaching every ear, even those who claimed they didn’t care…

​Seeing-eye Voice, cutting with precision through the many shields that conceal earthly hell that many people refuse to talk about…

Wire-tap, eye spy, you knew the Voice would be monitored all the time…

The Voice brought back memories of Ancient Warriors, Modern Warriors, and Silent Warriors, who are gearing up for battle once again…

The Voice will always live, no matter how many they have killed or plan to kill in the future…

Each time a Warrior dies, Another One Will Rise and be Stronger, Wiser, and more determined to set things straight and solidify the rest of the human race…

The Voice was in Shaka, Sojourner, Garvey, Elijah, Malcolm, just to name a few who had fire in their talk…

The Voice lived and lives in the words of Maya, King, Mandela, and all those others great who walked the earth and tried to enlighten the people and keep the word Hope alive in them.

Listen carefully for when the Voice invades your privacy and bring you back to a painful reality that others claim no longer exist…

When the Voice reaches the core of your heart and you hear with your soul as well as your ears…


I was told that the Voice lives inside of each and every one of us, waiting and anticipating to be activated…

Speak Up! Be Heard! There is Power in Words!
