William Ury: from "no" to "yes"


William Ury:  
"The secret of peace is us, each of us."
"Let´s stop fighting and start talking."
"Walking side by side in the same direction" 
"Engage a different one in a conversation"

Akua Naru: Love, how does it feel now?


Love, love mmm...I told y'allWe would be the band to play it.
My ghetto butterfly flew away from me.I wait patiently, by windows and doorsteps.Play, make believe, as my tears, poor chest
,won't succeed to breathe, if not to hear of you.
Surely there has never been a shade so blue.A stank attitude, so not mad at you.Not a magnitude to encompass the latitudeof my love for you.No space and time compatible.
What do I have to do? What do I have to do?Uh..my friends say I got it bad for you.I do. But there's nothing in this world I'd rather do,but you.

I want to make love to your existence,drenched in the colors of your energy,then masturbate to the memories.I wanna lose myself inside yourselfUntil you find me. Confine me,to the freedom of your prison.Exist in the same space, same time.Combine until your thoughts slow grind with mineCombine until your thoughts slow grind with mineCombine until your thoughts slow grind with mine
My, I wanna drink the sweat of your intellect,reflect, and watch your light passion walk my neck.Caress the sights of your presence with no question,undress to the nakedness of love, pure love.I want to make love to my soulmate... my soulmate...make love to my soulmate...my soulmate...make love to my soulmate, uh shit...I wonder, how does it feel to make love to your soulmate.Kind of like writing poetry till climax,till the point and place where space and time match.Can we cross the line, perhaps tell me would you like that.Now would you like that, tell me would you like that,would you like that, tell me would you like that,would you like that, tell me?
I'm gonna ask you again now, tell me..Would you like that, tell me would you like that,now would you like that, tell me would you like that,would you like that, tell me..
I wanna love you more than madly.Wrap these legs around your words,until your speech is straddled deep, gladly.Swim the currents of your vibrations,be separate in onewith the same meditation..Uh the same meditation..
Uh you know what..This, right here is poetry..
Enjoy.. Ualy, play that saxophone right now!
[Sax solo]
If love..If love had a soundthis would be that sound.And we,well we,We would be the band to play it.
