    Long ago, some people lived in caves
    Stayed so long their skin began to fade
    Along with it went, the melanin tint
    That would indicate the source
    from where they came
    Their hair went straight
    Missed the melanin kink
    And the pineal gland calcified
    how they did think

    In the pit of the cavern
    in the deep of the night
    the story began
    for those they call white

    White people, cave people
    put down your guns
    We understand why you hide
    from the sun
    For home you yearn, but
    exposed you burn
    and it's no secret you
    used to be one of US

    White people, white people
    stop all this war
    possession, consumption
    won't heal the core

    White people, cave people
    put down the guns
    then, only then can u
    return to the one

    White people, cave people,
    put down the weapons
    and stop the pretense that
    we're the burden
    The affliction is yours
    of degenerative health
    but you cover it up
    by using your wealth
    wealth that you steal
    wealth that you owe
    wealth that you eat
    and make others sow

    White people, white people
    stop being afraid
    start building on truth
    and pull down the facade
    of ethics in politics
    honest econo-trix
    plunder to commercialize
    bottle and label cultural pride

    So that you too can feel
    what it means to be real
    really proud and really you
    and really true
    to the meaning of love within
    peace for all and ....

    Yes, white people can yoga
    chant, meditate and pray
    in earnest and prostrate
    before GOD
    but you still came from
    and are derived from
    the same spark of
    the life's sun
    AS US

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and the Truth!



    phynxofkmt,

    This is phenomenal and mesmerizing. It is a simple truth that will solve a very complex problem. It is a simple foundation that solves an enigma. It is cutting edge to say the least. These words tell the story so succinctly; until they cry out, publish me please.

    Our GroupThink Project-Group home grown manuscript is an appropriate home for this profound soliloquy called Mystery of History, if you will my sister friend. Millions upon millions of people will be reading this quick story, and come to understand its significance. As a matter of fact, its proper place is at the front of the Book…. Bus:).

    Consider if you will, adding a change, but only for the rhyme:

    Yes, white people can yoga
    chant, meditate and pray
    in earnest and prostrate
    before GOD
    but you still came from
    and are derived from
    the same spark of
    SOD


    If you do give consideration to my rhyme, I will be forever grateful, and if you do not, I will be forever grateful, we owe you phynxofkmt for this Masterpiece, for real.

    yes

    i'd say it's a little more than that

    your piece is brilliant

    it shows some real points that bro. Clyde pointed out and i'm in a agreement

    you know alot of people feel white people are an aberration but

    in a universe based on duality and polarity

    i would say black AND white are just properties of that

    LOL

    You are right, it's a lot more than that, but that's all that rolled off my pen as a quickie explanation.... :em0100:... thanks for the luv

    Brother Clyde, I may make a change at the end, but I don't think it's SOD, that doesn't quite fit in I don't think..... :?:

    Listen sister phynxofkmt, if Da Street So'ja likes it, and he does, then lets do this because it is a Materpiece, for real. What about installing this piece inside of our GT publication? Are you willing?

    And please don't worry yourself about my suggestion, its no big deal, for real, if as its author you are satisfied, then like I attempted to show ya, I sho ain't mad @ ya, for real, but lets do this, k...in a big, big way.

    YES!

    Again thank you for the appreciation on the piece, that was the first time I had ever read it to anyone, and I'm glad it has found a home here. I would be pleased to have it apart of the publication!

    Brother Nasheed and DSS, thanks for the respect -
