Image for the poem Zion


A man is reborn three times in his life as his presence in the universal hovers
Birthed in his masculinity sliding out the lineage of his mother
The union unto his wife, his lifelong companion, his faithful lover
Until the soil where his last rite eulogized the trinity of spiritual rejuvenation he comes to rediscover
His life written on the art of his heart, his sacred walls
Can a man in life know his path, yet, still Heavenly fall
Learning to define his expectations as he remains erected, tall
Is it the good looks that narcissism gives him the reflective atonement to be, cursed, blessed
Empty hands, a trivial mind, the benediction of his tongue, demoting the presence of his prosperity once felt
The foolish dwelling in a synagogue of wrong henceforth, or in the ordained sanctuary of right, his mind tolls, his feet on a wayward journey, accepting, the consequences once dealt
The key of life, such a revered amulet of breath as the wearer to life
Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic of old, to the wearer disavowal of mythical strife
A beautiful emblem to a Deity of the Egyptian pantheon
From the wondrous Amazon Rain Forest to the rulers of Babylon
The djed, of manís spine, his Nation of Islam stirring, circulating in his bone marrow
To glimpse in the past, the strength of his intellect seeking the truth while keeping his eyes on the Sparrow, the road to redemption of self, is always narrow
Man of prestige, in his earthly swag, the footsteps always know his destination  
The superiority of his robe outlasts generational time, in his staff, overstretching the wonders of fertile land, to repel the wind comenth upon it, bringing strife and bitter salvation
The twelve houses of Abraham, I hear your whispers in recourse
Louder in battle then the thundering hooves of your chariots and horses
I placed the Atef Crown upon his head, the enlightenment motif around his neck to endure, worn with pride
When swords clashed, in the claim of his victory you stood against the sky as death and life did collide
The Ankh, in the inviolability of garnishing a mental christening  
To arid minds, praising in its benediction  
His salvation by ancient rites of passage worn by Pharaoh wherever he may go
Egyptian mummification ceremonies, laid upon, as the last rites were written as told
Breath of life through its electromagnetic properties waved under the nose
The body of preservation
A religious practice without any reservations
The three apparatuses of such an enthralling amulet to wear
Faith of spiritually, self-love, and the wisdom of his care
The vertical stem of the Ankh represents the man
In this universe, his creed he delivers as he solely stands
The horizontal aspect is the nucleus of the womanís earthly energy
The support realm to uphold manís universe and the state when as one, his mental synergy
The loop, a temple to house the creation of life within
The primordial of the galaxy, as the knowledge of higher self to reign
Man, woman, and child, a blessed divinity
Sun, Moon and Star of its trinity
Infinity of the Ankh, therefore, wear always in good faith, good health
Life, death, and the soul rebirth of its symbolic wealth

I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything....
I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything. And I felt like I needed to create things that were timeless too.
