In this tree of creation The Roots are my brothers Grounding me Stabilizing my consciousness Their ears are close to the earth Listening to the voices of our ancestors and founders of this culture Deciphering codes of truth in fresh waters Then passing it along to the branches To sustain artists thirsty for substance To feed us inspiration I am a branch Reaching up because they push me to expansion To lift my mind past limits of fear To explore the musical heavens To not be restricted My sister is a Scott like me First name Jill She is a branch that is as long as her journey She’s sturdy The kind of branch that can support the weight Of curious children that manage to climb up to her level of wisdom Leaves of eucalyptus adorn us Dripping with melodic and lyrical medicine That is strong enough to soothe souls, Point hearts towards hope, And be the salve used to heal burns Inflicted by the dragon of oppression’s fire This tree stands strong and is eternal Though its Thoughts are Black, Light is emitted This tree is proud This tree is prolific This tree is the life of creation

the mission step in with all votes deleted walk away undefeated as if somehow i cheated my moms… who skills wasn't vincent van gogh stopped drawing attention, menstrual flow slowed for three tri-mesters, life would truly test her she swore that she would pass and i would be her last wrong… the oldest, first one to be molded made mistakes with this sculpture, she couldn't control it sometimes… it's complicated tryin to make that perfect vase knowing that if you damage, it can never be replaced constant feel of her embrace as she vowed to construct a living statue of her blood that would have better luck an artist... painted "niggers" as the smartest to make life worth it she painted picture perfects kinda knew we was poor but she always assured use the tools that you have, you will always endure she painted that wealth, never wanted for needs if a friend asked for help, they never had to plead painted my self esteem "try and you'll succeed" "jealously makes 'em mean" "better make 'em bleed" painted a different breed eucalyptus...among the evergreens fresh like baby dragonflys learning to flap their wings thats somewhat extreme now i'm fuckin witcha but you get the picture
both were good, the roots is one of my favorite groups/artists too, and i like muddy's mom a lot(jokes). but i couldnt feel/catch daie's rhythm, plus muddy played with words more, and i love that shit.
