    Black Man
    Just through circumstance
    We come to be in this foreign land
    And there’s one thing we’ve known from then til now
    We grow as we fully comprehend
    That the pain will never end
    Sitting on a porch barefoot
    Taking in the cold of the wind
    Looking up into an empty sky
    Just missing friends
    Missing a time
    Though I can’t remember a time
    When everyone lived righteously
    Free to live, free to love
    Now that’s what I call liberty
    I sit and wait on a project wall
    Patiently
    For Babylon to fall
    Lords of lords, kings of kings
    Imagine living in a state of royalty
    And no one knowing what that really means
    Because through the physical eyes it just can’t be seen
    But then the spiritual takes over
    And I see things in you
    Things about yourself
    That I bet you never knew
    And my spirit throws rose petals at your feet
    Every time we meet
    I’m well aware that they don’t acknowledge
    His lordship, His Imperial Majesty (H.I.M)
    And it’s because of that
    Simply because of that
    You were forced to trim
    They told you that if you looked like them
    Then it would be easier to prosper
    Maybe get a really good job
    Translation: if you don’t then you’ll starve
    And though loving you sometimes feels like a chore
    Only a king could have made me breed
    The beautiful children that I bore
    And when that time comes
    Whenever that time is
    When you’ll want to give up because your heart is sore
    Then you’ll see baby, that’s when I’ll love you more
    Holding you up
    Pushing you forward
    To the things that lie wait in the distance
    All the dreams that we look toward
    Just through circumstance
    We come to be in this here land
    But I will never lose sight of a king
    Whose reflection smiles
    A beautiful black man

    Lataisha Nicole,

    Very tight, very meaningful, and very right:

    I sit and wait on a project wall
    Patiently
    For Babylon to fall
    Lords of lords, kings of kings
    Imagine living in a state of royalty
    And no one knowing what that really means

    I also particularly felt the lines that Brother Clyde highlighted. The piece as a whole encompasses that shadow of regality that should be at our forefront. I'm really at a loss for words, your expression was outstanding poetess. :bowdown:
