    East hating west

    Eyes could care less

    The dream all but gone

    Our heroes unsung

    Nightmarish class

    Mankind's own past

    Time running fast

    Snoozing won't last

    The "b" word's no hitch

    The "n" word we split

    Driveby's ~

    You bet!

    You mutha's,

    All dead...

    Recover,

    R-e-p-e-n-t

    Awaken less spent

    Where races don't mix

    Love's flipin' the script

    Born again renewed

    Are gentile and Jew

    Each earn r-e-s-p-e-c-t

    Returned from their rest

    Faded by time lapse

    A people relaxed

    With no income taxed

    A good God,

    Don't nap-

    Yeah!

    awakend from that dream...

    we found that the dream deferred had come and gone so swiftly and our final conflict if not present was iffy!
    not knowing where you going in the
    final goodnight.
    Not knowing if you fought your final
    good fight.
    Hold on those who fear and reverance
    God...these are the roads that our
    forefathers trod...let us not be weary
    or weak...spare the blow that is swift to your cheek!
    How do you destroy your enemy!
    YOU MAKE HIM YOUR FRIEND....
    It is truly the only way that anomosity
    war, and oppression will end...
    Believe have faith and be of stout
    courage....don't give in and lay down
    when the battle is just starting...
    You don't know what you can
    do with "ALL POWER" at your hand
    You forget God has the masterplan....
    I doubt not and keep forging ahead sure of one thing, that dead or standing I shall stand with the
    "RIGHTEOUS"! Where ever I am...
    ...AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE!
    BLESSINSG ON YA HOUSE!:peace:

    1Poet indeed you speak the truth in this simple and stark portrait of American society. Sometimes its hard to look in the mirror, and even harder to change the reflection of who we truly are. Keep elevating through the pen. Peace!
