Full Circle

You say you want to know all of me. Well then, just read my poetry.

I am a walking dialogue, swimming through the fog in my mind,

causing my third eye to go blind.

My testimony’s not phony.

These wounds are not superficial, I’ve been scarred down to the gristle.

My story’s a little gory but it contains things that will stain your brain.

Pain can be the best teacher and cause a fool to become a truth seeker.

How can I help you understand you if I don’t first understand me?

How can I help you see, if I’m still fumbling around in the dark?

I must become that spark, that flash of light that will ignite,

the ether in your existence.

Unless, of course, you are flame resistant

or retardant.

So, you see, I had to start at

me.

Because, it is He that resides in Thee,

that allows me to write this poetry…

– Jah Soul

All or Nothing

Jah was challenged by his wife to write about things that go beyond reflections of “self”.  The first subject he was challenged to write about was about “nothing”.  In true Jah fashion, he managed to turn nothing into something…here is Jah Soul’s interpretation of “nothing”

If everything perished would “nothing” exist?

Or, are they two symbiotic entities,

one needing the other for it’s own survival?

If everything always was, when was nothing manifested?

Is it possible that nothing came in to fruition

when we, the observer, perceived it?

Thus, causing it to usurp everything’s place in reality?

Nothing.

The eternal parent of our existence and the space where

ideas and dreams are conceived.

No thing materially, but

every thing potentially.

It is in “nothing” that we can truly discover

everything…

– Jah Soul
