    Black tears cried
    Through slavery
    Through slaves
    Because of massah's whip
    Or was it massah's grip?
    On reality
    Or fabrication?

    Black tears cried
    Through mixed children
    Conceived in hate
    Former queens
    Bearing children of Satan
    Yet with the heartbeat of God
    Smelling of Devil seed
    Which desecrated royal eggs
    With hatred
    Of life
    Of self
    Of what would come....

    Black tears cried
    For rights
    Civil
    And earned
    Through marches
    Rallies
    Tears mixed with blood
    Creating purple
    (Once again royalty)
    Fighting
    The '3/5' brand

    Black tears cried
    In bombed churches
    With lilly white saviors
    Covering the wall
    Seeking Godly connections
    Through idolotrous means :nono:
    True identity unseen

    Black tears cried
    For motivation
    From degradation
    Seeking reparation
    From an unrepentant nation
    An indication
    Or an expectation
    For generations
    Of slavish
    Babies
    Still crying
    These black tears in vain!


    (Let's stop the tears from flowing yall)
