    With so much going wrong
    A Black family
    can make it right

    A father who speaks
    with so much pride for us
    Reminding that our great
    history, should never be a mystery
    and thus

    With so much going wrong
    A Black family
    can make it right

    A mother whose intentions and
    actions speak quite loudly
    For she welcomes so many into
    her heart, the ancestors within beam proudly

    A daughter who echoes what her father says
    and what her mother does so well
    Her voice rings of the strength and the promise
    that only the hope for our future can tell

    With so much going wrong
    A Black family
    can make it right

    A husband, so full of life's passion
    A wife with the demeanor of a queen
    A child with an aura of all that is genuine
    Together, no negative force can wedge in between
    their love

    And the warmth each of them exudes...
    So intense, it can make a glacier melt
    A deep sense of family lights a flame in their very core
    With each and everything they touch, that warmth is felt
    all the more

    With so much going wrong
    A Black family
    can make it right
    And I am so blessed, you see,
    that such a family, touched me
    So, this is my way of saying,
    Thank You!

    Sis. Watz, this was so moving. A black family CAN make it right!!!! You just reminded me of how much I love the spirit that embodies our people. We are strong and mighty and as soon as we realize our power, greater things will happen!!!! Keep it flowing!

    You thank me? ...Yet I thank you more
    cause I smiled like a catus when I walked in that door

    My heart start jumping, like fish in the sea,
    that you traveled the distant, just to see me
    and the bond that connected is eterenity.

    Believe it or not...but I'm speechless at this point,
    I'm still in a daze that you appeared in that joint.

    I felt like we're known each other, for many many years,
    It took everything inside me...to hold back the tears.

    I have but only one regret, that troubled my mind,
    Is that before very long, we ran out of time.

    But I am ever so graceful, that our lives did cross,
    and we made it happen, regardless of cost.

    Thank you Queen wazt, for feeling safe in our zone
    My hearts always open...and so is my home!!

    True Sister HopelisRomantic, the spirit that embodies our people is so strong, thank you.
    Queent...and you respond back with such a heartfelt flow. A connection like this doesn't happen always, and when it does, well, you have to nourish it. I have to thank you a million times more, sis. :)
    Rich, words can fail us when we are so overwhelmed by the bond of family. Thank you.

    Sister Watz, I want to thank you for the beautiful and heart touching poem. When I first saw you sitting there Sunday I also saw more than the external you that most people see. When I hugged you I felt the energy of a spirit filled with love and genuine warmth. When I looked into your eyes i saw your soul and understood even more what I have always known...family is more than your physical brother or sister and you are family indeed!! You are a light with the energy and potential to just be a beacon to all in your circumference...more on that later. You are so much more than what others see or hear of you on this forum and Sister, you need to just let it SHINE !!! I'm very glad that you came to see us and to hear my speaking engagement. It will only get greater and I look forward to seeing you again !!! Much love and respect !!!

    Your Brother

    Keita Kenyatta

    Yes, we certainly are family Desert Storm, thank you.
    Oh so beautiful indeed, So'ja, peace brotha, and thank you.
    You're quite welcome Brother Keita, I am overwhelmed by your response, and I overstand what you are saying...I do. And yes, we are family. I wish all had the experience of seeing you speak, to read your words and hear your voice is potent, but to see you as well...a phenomenal force to be reckoned with. I look forward to seeing all of you again also, such a wonderful family. Much love and respect to you as well. Peace...
