    There's no place like da journey of timez

    in da streets of fracture dreamz and blind mindz

    pitted under da slumber of death sleepers
    to da cry of hollow scary weepers

    Soulz taken in mass destruction

    many live in america's corruption
    like da falsely hood of jubelee
    divided from us and da power of we

    Heartz broken like frozen glass

    brothers and sisters displayed in mask
    as bodies count rise rapidly fast
    we da people now on blast

    Save me , save me from my sorrow

    take me away from such deadly horror
    allow me to walk in my great morrow
    and give me as i live my daily flower

    I stand big, yet not as an tower

    and still i fight in unities battle
    my life un-glue yet need no power
    for i have hope faith by da hour

    Stuck in tis colour maze

    suited in armor of silver glaze
    rage of destructional blaze
    still my mind is never cage

    I journey through life's single page

    in america's cities stage
    fighting da witts of poverty waves
    under da struggle dat's been laid

    Odds that i may not live

    so i call out unto u peace be still
    unite as people under his will
    and let us not bring unity kill

    I am of clay, da dirt of his mold

    only one man who stand apath bold
    breaking bread as history unfold
    so i may pen da america's new stroll

    Lable me not as an hero

    but a black man a brother u know
    one that's in america's sad show
    fighting round for round blow by blow

    soon it will be done

    for my eyez like raising in da sun
    my body of ash dust 2 dust
    remember it wasn't about me but the us

    AMERICA

    Each segment of this was masterful. But if I had to highlight one stanza, it would be this:

    We are often made to feel we are tolerated here, but not really a part of. In turn, we treat each other that way. Flow on brother.
