I’ve wanted to shun tenet and lay to rest my self-superiority with it.
I’ve always wanted to be loved by a couple of God’s and live in a smooth song like Sarah and Joanna.
I’ve always wanted to attend a cocktail party wearing a little Black Dress and a shotgun, because the Revolution will start on a DJ’s Turntable.
I’ve always wanted to write a poem down a King’s back while his Concubine watched from behind a curtain.
I’ve always wanted to give thanks in a room filled with Iroquois’s, Ashanti’s and Wodaabe’s.
I’m only 238,854 Miles, 384,399 kilometers = 4.06318742 × 10-8 light years away from Earth where you buried your faith.
