    My brotha from...
    native land

    grandson of Griot

    Royal Lineage

    Cissiko

    turned cold
    got bold upon landing on
    American soil

    He's...

    in a mental
    turmoil

    married...not for love but
    for citizenship
    yet
    maintainin' extramarital
    sexual relationship

    woman...not of Afrikan dissent
    but of caucasion persuasion

    I...his afrikan sistah spoke
    with a question

    THEN...
    when sexual companion with
    white face puts him in his place
    he...curses me and spits in MY face???

    witnesses watch in
    dis-belief and are
    dis-placed when again he's...
    up in my face
    causing domestic actions with
    calloused afrikan hands
    made out with no physical but
    mental

    ~scars~

    with his fuked up
    dis-placed
    dis-position
    screamin' *** this!! *** you!!!
    profanity ringing in virgin ears
    of small children

    Afrikan Man I am your sister
    Remember me?? yet...
    you treat me like a crack-faced monster

    America has you fooled-
    mind
    TaInTeD with a picture
    PaInTeD...
    ~color blind~
    now vivid in your mind...

    White is RIGHT and
    blak is WACK
    unless a sistah's layin on
    her back
    BUT...
    here's a fact that's been proven
    time and time again

    We as Afrikan women
    love
    support and
    understand
    OUR
    Afrikan MEN

    NOT
    "have them deported due to their method
    of disicpline"

    comin ot America
    caught up in their system of
    manipulation of mental psyche
    has you con-fused

    What happened to your
    Afrikan values and beliefs?

    My brotha from...native land

    grandson of Griot

    Royal Lineage

    Cissiko...

    Go...back home to Senegal
    back to the 'bush'
    connect with your ancestors
    cleanse yourself
    ...juju's...binbin's
    purify and pray

    and return (if nesessary) as the
    honorable
    respectful
    Afrikan Man I once knew you to be.

    this is a sad sight

    to witness....

    when we trade in "ourselves" to fit someone elses picture of who we should be....

    losing sense of self.....our worth, our value, our everything...

    and sadly it happens because of colour, social standing, location, vocation....too many reasons, but with the same result...

    Afri.....

    I like the delivery of this
    often some get caught up
    and lose their way
    but honesty that you portray
    hopefully will light his way..
    nice flow poetess

    to kiss *** til we 65
    and receive halfass benefits
    for the rest of our livez

    all will come that's due

    this person is obviously confused

    this psyche is deep

    because they wouldn't
    dare do the bs to them
    but then don't even see
    you as the true

    QUEEN

    yes, i agree, afri...confused, he is. if he could read this piece heyah! and there are so many that are out there that are in the same boat. this piece, dear poetess, speaks very loud and clear. perhaps, he will wake up and think someday and will realize that he does owe you an apology...if he hasn't thought about it already. keep scribin', dear poetess, yo work is always enjoyable to read.
