    Darken steamed window

    broken stain glass
    looking back upon ancestors past
    tears run down my cheek
    how thy people stumble and weak
    from what was pure and so meek
    remembering way back mentally deep
    I glaze out into da night
    for answers and some hopeful light
    while my loyality continue to fight
    to change our wrong into right
    as i walked upon da ledge
    to see us as people on da edge
    then i heard voices in my head
    that we as people really not dead
    i softly looked down against da grain
    as i frown it started to rain
    drops of tears from my eyez
    from a flower that stared to rise
    befound me a rainbow shown
    inside colors moving on strong
    gave me courage inspired me
    let me know of greatness and bravery
    fortitude , pass danger wit my ability
    I rise high any could see
    off da mold of the rooted black tree
    i cry da tears of past & future history
    knowledge to know we yet not free
    but wisdomize to see our great deed
    place'd on us , you and me da seed
    a rose of tears i cry u may not see
    until we bond and form unity

    What I saw thru your words were the emotions of each generation interwoven, while an endless linking of hands join in understanding. Great write poet.

    All i ever want of us is to come together as a people collectively and stop da
    black on black / brother 2 brother and sister 2 sister / brother vs sister war

    we have a greater mission and struggle at hand against us all unity is the key
    then we can bring forth a mental wisdomize knowledge to fight our oppressors

    This still lay heavy on my mind ......how where and when do we change!
