    Feeling the rage
    Of our race
    Which seems to have
    A desire to self destruct
    As we deconstruct
    Everything
    That our ancestors
    Fought
    Bled
    Died
    For
    We fall prey to society
    Secret
    Hat trick
    By planting
    The notion
    That we are our worst enemy
    Therefore
    Black
    On
    Black
    Genocide
    Takes root
    And germinates
    but
    let the declaration
    ring forth
    that is must stop here…
    Therefore
    I call on
    A blast from the past
    And call forth
    The scribes
    Of
    Baller
    Rich
    &
    Da Street So’ja
    That we may
    In prolific
    Vibes
    Dip
    Our pens
    In the indelible
    Ink of the blood
    Of our patriarchs
    And begin
    A new chapter
    For our people
    This is our testament
    That is written in crimson red
    That debunks
    And uncovers
    Antiquated thinking
    That puts self righteousness
    Over self sacrifice
    For one’s neighbor
    We declare that our children
    Shall live and not die
    By bullet
    Knife
    Pedophile
    Or any other thing
    We take authority
    Over this realm
    and claim it as our own
    as we march into a new era
    where what we write
    shall become our destiny

    YAY! A poetic callout :read:
    My cousin & I went to the laundromat the other night & family friend (brotha) came to keep us company since it was so late & make sure we were okay :)
    He started up this coversation with another brotha in the place talking politics and such
    From time to time I would join in on the conversation but for the most part I just listened laughed smiled and folded with my cousin
    As we started to leave brotha was like... "I apologize if I was bullying that conversation sister, yanno a brotha just get worked up"
    I smiled at him & assured him that my spirit enjoys hearing our black men strongly voice themselves because it just squelches the lies that exist saying otherwise...

    having said that my brotha King :) *breaking out the snacks & finding a seat*
    MUCH :heart: props :heart: and please... do continue :)
    *lQQkin @ Rich & So'ja* (dont take forever now lol)

    so that others will see...and know

    we are the leaders...
    the protectors
    of this human race
    will fight to protect our space
    all up in your face
    for the YOUNG ONES sake

    our ancestors LIVED
    they DIED
    they CRIED "rivers and stream" tears
    that you and i might live (on)
    to be strong
    to pass on
    knowledge and strength
    that makes the world think
    that gives them cause to think
    that open their eyes to the stink
    of the system we live in
    injustice heaped upon
    my ebony-hued skin
    won't bend
    don't want to let us win

    BUT WE CAN'T LOSE

    as this village steps up and choose
    the path our children walk
    that "BLACK-on-BLACK" hatred
    will cease in their talk

    THEY LIVED
    THEY CRIED
    THEY DIED
    that this might be
    you and i
    eternally.

    B...this be off da top...but I'm on it.
