    We da people in da class
    wit great knowledge that will last
    casting our mindz in da depth
    of schooling our souls are kept
    Blackness is our awareness
    we strive and live to achieve
    when the preasure lay down a squeeze
    our mental state get to work
    no time for fooling or thinking of a skirt
    schooling is a great deed
    for our culture and humble creed
    stay aware uplift every seed
    so we all get that higher degree

    Phenomenon
    Knowledge is faithful
    But ignorance is a cheater
    Some are abandoned in oceans
    When they accept confusion as their teacher
    The past can hurt us
    But experience guides us
    down a direction where learning is key
    I've always lived non-fiction
    But never opened a book that was right in front of me
    Denying education is hard to do
    When success is predestined in you
    When your words are naturally literature
    Or your movement is immune to failure
    It's hard to resist wisdom when we are the
    Martyrs of Solomon
    Creations of heavenly genius
    Students of Jesus and
    The offspring of elders
    My skin is the color of history
    And the future is depending on me

    $$RICH$$
    Mental awareness the power it brings
    staying in school accomplishing dreams
    education is our victory and tool
    to reclaim and gracefully gain society pool
    Teaching hope and reality of thy people
    to read and write to awaken all sleepers
    mathomatic of bio unfold
    learning awareness is now our goal
    Schooling is no joke
    when we trun away only to feel da smoke
    as it tame and hold us in a choke
    without education our morrow would be broke
    Striving is da essence of learning our worth
    beating the odds and killing the curse
    changing the lable and numbers of drop-outs
    with a stage performance of diploma we shout
    stay in school is what it's about.

    Phenomenon
    There's so much power in these palms
    That I wrote my own psalm
    "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of ghettos
    I will fear no discouragment
    For thou art with me
    Thy pen and thy paper, they comfort me
    Thou preparest a desk before me
    In the presence of my unbelievers
    Thou anointest my head with inspiration
    And my potential runneth over"
    I raise my hand to understand questions like
    Why are children being left behind?
    Why are teachers being paid less than others?
    Why is the cost of college so high?
    And why is intelligence divided by skin colors?
    Now if you have the answers, please raise your hand
    Politicans pretend to understand but
    Beware of stupidity
    And be aware of elementary,
    Junior high, high school, and college
    Then exercise the privelege...
    Of pushing yourself over the limits

    we both send this alert of awareness to stay in school
    a mental educated mind is a bad waste in today's society

    There are no limits to what we can learn and then apply. This call to awareness rang out loud and strong, there's no telling who you may reach with your words. Bravo, both of you!! :terrific:
