I Know…


I want what I need.

Shila Iris

… so close to understanding, so close to understanding, so close to understanding…
the center, the Source.

Reject the extremes. Balance.

You don’t have to ask when you know. Be real silent.

He knows.

Osiris, future husband, in chronological order, superseding … in time, Anno Domini


I may never see you again,
at least until I die, Christ-like,

but in every Life.

In every life,
come say hello, for our understanding will always grow
and, if you’re silent enough, you’ll recognize me.

We’ll sip Sauvignon Blanc, skate,
listen to music and reproduce,
but we’ll stay sober,
cuz sober reveals the truth.

In time.

Shila Iris

Green Papaya




I transform into many things to feed him
and he gives so abundantly.
I flourish under his pressure.

He’s so possessive because he actually does have everything I need,
so I had to give it up.
Transcend, ascend, with him.

Reverb, sustained… harmonizing …


The cosmic perspective opens our minds to extraordinary ideas
but does not leave them so open that our brains spill out,
making us susceptible to believing anything we’re told.

The cosmic perspective enables us to see beyond our circumstances,
allowing us to transcend the primal search for food, shelter, and sex.

The cosmic perspective reminds us that in space, where there is no air,
a flag will not wave – an indication that perhaps flag waving and space exploration do not mix.

The cosmic perspective is humble.

The cosmic perspective is spiritual, even redemptive, but not religious.

The cosmic perspective not only embraces our genetic kinship with all Life on Earth,
but also values our chemical kinship with any yet-to-be discovered Life in the Universe.

We are stardust …

The Dance


The seduction imposed on us by vibrant reminiscence
can drag us into the despair of continuous repetition of sad memories,

just as easily as it can lead us…

into the highest triumph of freely creating a new counter-gesture: the dance.

From then on, our movements become lighter than air,
ethereal gestures into space, away from all heaviness.

Rhythm, cadence, syncopation reach ear and eye,
and man is unobtrusively dragged back into the very beginning of his existence,
together with others he undergoes a common regression.

Close your eyes and see.

I’m dancing, dance with me. Dance with my children.

we know the truth,

Do Knot Ever Dye


Don’t you
ever die.


Untie the knots
change color, change form.

it’s a thing, I do.


Blacker than night,

The Color of Conception


Falling into the burning radiations of the Sun
I rejoice in a re-beginning
My ancestors bequeath me the gift of remembering … hear me …


My desire to change is the purifying power that led you into my arms
Let my simple words, my touch, my smile
cure you

Embrace the electromagnetic currents
that come from the tips of my fingers
and from every orifice
that has been cleansed and charged by the oils in the water in which I bathe

Drown yourself in this water
Die so that you can live
Let go so that you can hear me speak
It is you, who said that you will not survive without me,

so allow me to be the charge that ignites you
Allow me to be the darkness from which you emerge

I am in the water,
at the very bottom of the blue abyss
and if only you’d look into this mirror,
and release the misperceptions of your miseducation,

you’d feel me

I am a healer, mother
a Creator
from the same Source
as You

When your eyes met mine, that first time,
you remembered me
You knew who I was from another life
and in denying me, you deny yourself

I will always be in the tunnels of your mind
a bothersome thought,
an intuitive feeling in the pit of your stomach…

until you say the truth, live it
become it

Your inner voice has already spoken
Your inner eye has already seen
Give birth to me

Peace Luv

The Mis-Education of Shila Iris


…and before I knew it, I was spending many of my Friday nights studying, Hip Hoppin,’ and gyrating-vibrating aka dancing. Give it up, give it all!!! I surrender, dear Shila, to You!

I’m so in Love with Her. I am at peace with Her. Gotta keep freeing her mind, each and every second of every day. The intent is real. Lonely’s the only other company, meaning, She is the Love no other Love can Be [insert Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite].

It is so stimulating to exercise the cranium, thus changing yourself, and then the world, the air you breathe, and the energy around You.

Your oppressor cannot educate You. Trust. I Know. Study and listen, and then we can move coherently. How you gonna change the world for My People when you know nothing about them?

Come closer,

Shi la I ris

Let these truths be your spiritual foundation.

I see behind your eyes


… then I’m transforming.

Finality is quite fine with me if you know we can go there.  You ready?  Because if you are, I’m going so deep inside of you, you will always tell me the truth.

I’m going so deep inside of you, you will always tell me the truth.
I’m going so deep inside of you, you will always tell me the truth.
I’m going so deep inside of you, you will always tell me the truth.

The voices inside of me.

Coming here was part of the cure
           walking into this place of silence
                   into the aloneness of the unknown
                                 into the darkness of creation

I unfold
       Unravel, unwind
             I search the valleys of my mind,

of myself
wandering, I wonder

Where am I?

Somewhere behind the mask
I could feel

I had eyes beneath the surface
eyes planted so deep inside of me
          unlike belief, intuitively bequeathed

The memories teased my release
until the streams of me became oceans

The heat of my questions melted glaciers
until the landmass of walking matter which was once me,

the iciness

became something different

             something shifted
something changed
something closed
something opened

Asking, I asked, I’m asking

I passed, I drifted into suspension
until the material world became the bottom

the abysmal abyss of dismemberment

Looking up
           I could see

Complex equations made simple

Turning as if on a wheel
          dying as if it were living

The utterance of oneness

Let these numbers lead the way
Let these choices extend the day
Let this pressure be calming…

as I maintain peace

2020 Vision: Read… study … know … enter … Before Christ…


Flashy car, fancy house and clothes… a pocket full of cash… a crowd around you to validate your worth… but what really is your worth when you know nothing of the history of your people and you don’t recognize the voices of your ancestors? You only know the voices of the ones paying you and training you to stay subservient and numb.

Who are you?

6000 years Before Christ (B.C.), where were your people and what were they doing? It’s been written. It’s been told by Us Afrikans in many wonderful texts. Your ancestors loved you so much, they wrote the history on the pyramid walls and tablets so that you wouldn’t forget. Kmt. Kemet. Nubia. Ta Seti. Sudan, then Ethiopia. You’d better read. 2020 Vision. Go back and fetch your history because the past is the future is the now. Everything is everything.

Peace and love,

Shila Iris

Healing Flow


Could she be speaking of someone she loves or is she speaking to herself?  You decide.

Remember, you can only experience the healing flow when you truly desire to tell the truth about yourself.  Who are you?  Focus on the reflection you see when you look into the mirror.  Your eyes tell everything.  Breathe. Set yourself free.

Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learned,

Shila Iris ♥
