fav lyric from a song







I know no prejudice, I bare no sentiments
For wealth or settlement, I move forward  
I am time
You cant recover me, conceal or smuggle me, 
Retreat or run from me, crawl up or under me,
You cant do much for me besides serve
Mos Def – Hurricaine

In both worlds, when the bronze is snatched, we tend not to understand let alone resolve. Relive the fruits of history.
