  1. da streetz know me

    step out from da dark
    n step into da light
    step up ur game in a positive light
    u gata follow Christ
    so u can have insight
    da streetz just a deep shadow
    if u aint gat dough
    Lord show me da way
    dont let me go astray
    i cant find a way
    unless u show me
    God bless al da brotherz
    that i know from da streetz
    dream dreamz Lord knows

  2. dont touch that dail

    roll a dice
    Christ paid da price
    so we kian rise

  3. Imagine!!!
    100 thousand poets; from different continents, different countries, different cities, speaking
    different dialects but with the same GOAL, empowered by a VISION, now on a MISSION to
    cause a positive CHANGE!!! using words, aiming at the fundamental; the mind set! to change the way we think so as to influence our behavior, our thoughts, how we communicate, relate and
    coexist with people of different religion, school off thoughts, tribes etc. to imbibe good MORALS and VALUES! leaving behind all the pain life turned to us, A total reorientation of the mind set!! Our target being the entire
    human race!!! No body but our selves can bring about this CHANGE we all so desire……….
    Who’s gonna be the first to blast? Micheal? Ken? Ellis? no we dont need names, we need like minds! This can only happen if it starts with you, you,you and you, Look at me! it’s you am talking to…………..

  4. TRUST and BETRAYAL
    Self realization and it’s effect on our conscience
    only helps to exonerate TRUST for it’ age-long
    alliance with BETRAYAL!
    While TRUST goes to sleep, ever trusting that
    everything is alright; BETRAYAL schemes its
    secret plans in the dark, taking TRUST unaware!
    That Judas Iscariot, a trusted disciple of Jesus
    Christ, after betraying his master sentenced himself
    to DEATH! is enough testimony!!
    Let TRUST continue in it’s Humble way’s;
    BETRAYAL definitely will destroy it’s self………….
    Christ Soulja

  5. OUT OF THE DEPTHS MY CRY
    GIVE EAR AND HEARKEN…….
    THIS IS OUR SWAN SONG
    THIS IS OUR SENSES’ STILLNESS
    THIS IS THE SIGH OF OUR SPIRITS;
    ‘THAT WE SHOULD’
    CARRY IN OUR WORLDS THAT FLOURISH
    OUR WORLDS THAT HAVE FAILED!
    ‘OUR WORLDS THAT HAVE FLOURISHED
    SHOULD BE THE BURDEN BEARERS OF
    OUR WORLDS THAT HAVE FAILED’!!!!!!!!

    Inspired by the insesitiveness of Government and Cooperate bodies/ individuals to the plight
    of the oppressed tribes and people of Niger Delta Nigeria.
