Black man where you at

Lost in a maze
Swallowed by the haze
Amnesia setting in
You once was a king
But now you just a fool
Killing your brethren
With drugs
Drive by shootings

Black man where you at

Disrespecting queens
Spilling your seed
On ground not fertile
germinate and producing
Weeds
That grows wild
No black man to tame them
Or to train them
Doomed
To enter the cycle
Of generational curses
Speaking satanic verses

Black man where you at

Read the writing on the wall
Reverse course
Walk towards the light
That dispels the blackness of the soul
transfigured
transformed
restored to the place
That’s destined for you
Among the stars
In the heavens


Black man where you at
 
I Feel You

I feel your concern. It's heavy upon my heart also. This verse says it all in painting the picture of the average young, black male.

Disrespecting queens
Spilling your seed
On ground not fertile
germinate and producing
Weeds
That grows wild
No black man to tame them
Or to train them

Many daddies are doing their own thang, with no set morals.
The average young male sees this and (age 8 or 9) many times he is being programmed by what he sees or hears. For example, the medium dad uses for "entertainment" in the form of pornographic material such as movie videos and certain forms of rap music.

Your poem does what every poem should do, if it's written to be taken seriously...provoke someone to change for the better or at least...think about it.

Thanks to all of you!!!

I feel that we need to take our proper role, and emerge from the streotype that society has placed us in, and we have accepted.

Black Men must learn how to be true Black men for the true black men were rulers!! They were servants of the most high!!! they stood for something!! We fail to see the guiding light even though it's right in front of us....
