Battle For Peace

Deshawn Yeldell 1977 (Huntsville)

My battle for peace my battle for peace carries on as time release,
 whom is a friend and who’s the foe?
O o o my soul be bleeding,
enemy enemies, whisper over my shoulder day by day the world becomes colder
the book of Riffs that’s my folder,
containing words heavy as boulders,
Dropping lower and lower a melting heart holder;
my God; my God I have become much wiser an older;
wiping the misery off my shoulder.
 -MillYentei
