"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds. "
                          Bob Marley

To expand the senses,

One must first see past tenses,

One must allow the self to drop defense’s,

There they are to keep one safe,

Imaginative intellect is just one of our pretenses…


The mind it is said is a terrible thing to waste,

On drugs our minds are as eggs in a fry pan,

Though to expand that mind, the self we have to face,

Most of the time however my mind seems to be far out & spaced…


The music of enlightenment is achieved,

Further discussion is in transition,

The mind from birth is preconceived,

Though enlightenment is our end all ambition,

Born with it we were, fighting we are for a natural acquisition…

"Sex, drugs, and insanity have always worked for me, but I wouldn't recommend them for everyone. "Hunter S. Thompson

Leftover druggies from the sixties and new-age druggies all have one thing in common, they believe their stuff sdon't stink and everybody else's does. Been there. Done that. Got out. Won't lie, however and say that those days have not affected my thought process, even as we speak.

Though enlightenment is our end all ambition,

Enlightenment sounds like a good ambition - and I guess everyone seeks it in their own way.
