    Black man flowin'
    Saying what he think he knowin'
    What he feels
    What he sees
    Lettin' you in
    On his fantasies

    Saying what is unspoken
    Heart and mind always open
    Sometime fiction
    Sometime fact
    Black man flowin'
    Puttin' it down like that

    Inspired from above
    Flowin' hate
    Flowin' love
    Every aspect of life
    Part of his daily mix
    Shootin' up ink
    For his poetic fix

    Lovin' life
    In spite of stress and strife
    Black man flowin'
    By night and by day
    Never can it be any other way
    Always willin' to take
    Always willin' to give
    Black man flowin'
    His reason to live

    BE
