The Tao of Jah [Jul. 7th, 2007|01:12 pm]
T2KE-Kamiiiee
Jah, you are the garden,
   you are the ghetto
Jah, I am the Medicine Man
    you are the medicine
Jah, you are the crown, the lion, and the flame
    you are that of nine hundred ninety-nine thousand names

Jah, because of you the hood smells of pineapple and ginger, pineapple and ginger -
    roses too
    papaya too
in spite of the blood still warm on the concrete - another mother's son laid out on the streets
Oh, but roses too
    but roses too

Jah, you are the garden
    you are the ghetto
Oh Jah, you are the crown, the lion, and the flame

Heal the hood
Heal the hood
Heal the hood

---

Jah, you are the refuge and I the refugee
Jah, you are the lightning, thunder, and the wind that calls my name ( I hear you calling...)
Jah says 'Stand Up and Be At Peace For You Are The New Trinity'
- Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens
