Selected Tupac Poems

RIP my bro, there's a heaven for a g.
In the event of my demis
In The Event Of My Demise
In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I Hope I Die For A Principle
or A Belief that I had Lived 4
I will die Before My Time
Because I feel the shadow's Depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
before I reached my Death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from My eyes
I Loved All who were Positive
In the event of my Demise
- 2pac

In the depths of solitude
In The Depths Of Solitude
I exist in the depths of solitude
pondering my true goal
Trying 2 find peace of mind
and still preseerve my soul
CONSTANTLY yearning to be accepted
and from all receive respect
Never compromising but sometimes risky
and that is my only regret
A young heart with an old soul
how can I be in the depths of solitude
when there R 2 inside of me
This Duo within me causes
the perfect opportunity2 learn
and live twice as fast
as those who accept simplicity

A thin line btn love and confusion!? - Or is it abt the persona!?

A love that I want, will never be mine,
A love that I seek will never come with time.
A love that haunts me, and calls out my name,
A love that is confused, and its love that I blame.
A love split by two, a love split by lust,
A love like this I would never be able to trust.

But love nonetheless, is what draws me.

Why do we want something that can hurt so bad.
In the end we must end up happy or sad.
With a risk like that its hard to choose,
With decisions like this its easy to get confused.
If I win or loose, its up to the heavens,
“In life you have three great ones” I’m already on seven!

My Niles

My Niles
The River Nile: Ever eaten a Nile Crocodile or a Nile perch!? You hate of the beauty on the Nile. Its a new rumour am inventing -the Biblical Eden must have been watered by the Nile. Please spread this rumour. The Nile is that vein that pumps blood to the heart. I remember my Sciences well - Its the Plum... something vein! I travelled the stretch from Kampala through the great Murchison Falls and kaalas! I saw the beauty. A sultan must be envying what they can't get off the Nile. Sultan only my hoof - even Europeans, Americans, Asian, Australians and Africans you are not spared! I see them all trying to steal a piece of the Nile. If you are a tourist and haven't been a Nile republic, please consider your self a non tourist and please when you come remember to tell this blog.

My world: Pope; Camilla charles; Obote and M7!

Dr. John Paul II
The pope died and was buried. I mourn him, not really as a pope but more so as a humane person. RIP. Dr. Pope John Paul II life taught me a phenomenon. If the whole pope visited a mosque, wasn't that an example enough for lay Christains to feel free and also have a go to Mecca!? The Dr. also visited Mahatma Ghandi's and only one thing comes out clearly: -Regardless of religious affliation, some men are worthy being in heaven men like the Mahatma's, like Dr. (POPE) John Paul II, etc had crross cutting values. I have attended Catholic services, been in a Pentacoastal and Protestant Churches. One thing which differentiats them all are not their values but man made practices and concieved rituals. In my view these man mades are nothing but derailants! AND I REFUSE TO BE BOGGED BY THEM! I long for a day when we shall not have to identify our selves as Christians (Even saying that one is a christian isn't enough. You have to either say you are a Catholic or Protestant or Pentacoatal or even Baptist for that matter!), nor as Muslims, nor Buddhist, etc. All these have common values which seem to be what our creator and God wants.

Charles weds Camilla
You divorce your wife and the beauty dies and you remarry a woman who divorced her military husband. Well they are now pronounced husband and wife! England! I can't rule out needing a Bristish visa oneday! Congs Charles!

Obote to return to Uganda. M7: He must answer some charges
Obote (then President of Uganda in the 1980s but now disposed and living in exile) fought the insurgency of M7 (Gen. Museveni then a rebel commando and commander of the NRA but now the Pres. of Uganda). The big stage was a the Luwero Triangle! Thousands of the population there lost their lives. Now Obote wants to return. And M7 has made his views known: You must answer some charges.

See it this way: Please only imagine! PSE! Ok, M7 (Pres.) fights Joseph Kony (LRA - These ones are Dreaded REBELS!). The battle field is Northern Uganda. Thousands have now died and counting! GOD FORBID! Kony overthrows the government of a Col. (So they wish!) and Kony now President demands of M7 to answer charges at the battle field of Northern Uganda!

Did you notice some thing. I would again put it thus: When two elephants fight, its the grass that suffers. In Uganda's politicing today, the victor is president and the loser must answer charges!
