    As the years go by I keep it more than real,
    Dam what they say or think, later for what they feel.
    I mean, everywhere I look people are selling out,
    while I stop and wonder, what's that all about?
    Personally speaking, I love what I see...
    and got to hook up with a reflection like me.
    In fact, make it black, no, blacker than black,
    and for all who have a question, yeah I love it like that.
    You see, black is my origin in a melanated state,
    embrace me, reproduce me, push me through the 9th gate.

    The strongest thing in the universe is mine to behold,
    not bombs nor whitey but the infamous black hole!
    In the beginning was darkness so step on this ride,
    cause darkness was the place where God must reside.
    In time this darkness gave birth to the light,
    so where in the hell came the death dealing whites?
    Stealing my words, my breath and my history,
    corrupting all life as they seek out to dis me.

    But check this out, there's a thought much debated,
    cause the science of the past says their @ss was created.
    Some Black people say that from us they decayed,
    but Dogons, Kemet and others say they were made.
    Not humans but souless ones, destined to fight...
    while we were warned they'd disguise themselves
    as an angel of light.
    They even said the beast would wear sack cloth as men,
    Go ahead, read your Bible, it's in there my friend.

    This poem speaks facts so don't think that it's hate,
    cause me and Mr. Whitey have a historical date.
    A date that says that the planet is dying,
    the Indians are weeping and my babies are crying.
    The Motherland is screaming cause we're all off track,
    now there's black people who don't want to be black.
    Rome, Greece, Spain and all those other suckers,
    will forever in my heart be some white muther f***ers.

    The origins of man cannot be debated
    No matter how wronged or often we’ve been hated
    The truth is the truth. No one can change it
    A universal truth. Though many have tried to rearrange it

    Blacker than black. The only true form
    Not assisted by others. Not needy or forlorn
    Created to have dominion over all the earth
    Kings and Queens. With no equal in the universe

    That’s who we are.

    A VERY POIGNANT AND REVEALING PIECE, INDEED.

    Febuary It's black history month, a ******* tale
    black history month what is this,
    A tale of persecution, hatred, and anger.
    no it is not my history not my tale.
    I dont believe that it has anything to do with those of color
    supremacy, domnation, and control
    does this sound familiar it does to me
    just another story of how white people have destroyed this world
    They say that we are the enemy the criminals
    I say we play the small role and they call the shots
    Just like true haters exploiting our triumphs
    but talking down behind or backs
    Obamas the prez but what for, they wont let him him shine or do his thang
    his ideas will be used, but by the next republican prez so that they can take the cred
    all this on my mind because of a picture of one of my fav actors Morgan Freeman
    he stated that you can not relegate our history to one month and the only way to end racism is to stop talking about it and stop teaching it

    We can't forget or negate what we live daily in these states.
    Needing a logical reconciliation
    When you admit to have taken advantage and you take a outh to change your ways
    So rememberance will be in the picture
    Tracing the oh so ovious distranctions that come you systemized life for you and me
    Admit the system began and we have not owned up
    To finally making light to what goes on 24 7 and why and how we get get way
    With it our eyes closed!

    I know now that I don't be writing these poems. I think that something else be coming through me and uses me as a vehicle to get this stuff out.
