    My beautiful Black King, why do you run so swiftly?
    Why do you leave me to taste your dust?
    I too, long to be free.

    You say my tongue is sharp like razors.
    My strength is that of a man.
    And being a black female, life is much more grand.

    I tell you my king, life ain’t all that it seems.
    I too, still long to be free.

    When you hear my continuous rant
    about all the things you can’t
    it’s just that I’m afraid
    that your beautiful soul will be laid
    laid out to rest
    when I need to be safe
    In your tender embrace
    next to your warm and strong chest
    I too, long to be free

    I can’t run as fast
    with these babies on my breast
    Someone has to help them grow
    to learn, to understand, and know
    that they too, must fight to be free

    So I’ve concocted a plan
    if you’ll slowdown and hold my hand
    I’ll speed up my pace
    and guide you to where it’s safe
    then together we can fight to be free

    Come back home Black Man
    Come back home Black Man
    Come back home to where you Belong!
    Together we both shall be freeeeeeeeee!

    Coming home beautiful Queen
    to the reality from this running dream
    to hold your hand make a stand
    be the tru King ya lovin black man
    contour and caress the babies upon ya chest
    to give relief from the worth of ya breast
    I wanna be free but with my Queen beside me
    coming home to protect and together we
    face the task of any effect in direct
    i'm coming so we can strive and be free
    keep you safe and fears away from thee
    slowing down please don't frown
    thy spirit afloat and a glow here to let you know
    i'm coming home black Queen of dreamz
    so we can fight to be free as a we you see
    coming coming Homeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, Purplemoons how I heard this earnest plea, asking the Black man to come home so we can both truly be free. Awesome flow poet, I wish that it would have been posted in the Get Your Flow On forum so that more would read these heartfelt words. ^5

    yanno Sis, I was watching the world news on PBS. It showed hundreds of African Men charging Spains borders, despartly trying to climb a barbwire fence. They were shooting and killing these Men. You could see the blood stained fence and clothes everywhere. Some African Men was describing the whole ordeal.

    I couldn't help but to think, where are the Sisters, Mothers, and Children of these mens. I guess they were left behind, now faced with the sole responsibility of supporting the family the best way they kwow how. I know some of these brothers were just looking for a way to be free and to support their familes on the other side, but so many of these brothers was murdered, and many won't ever be physically able to work again.

    Then I thought about our Brothers here in the states. Struggling and dying to be free. Trying any means to build finacial stability for their families. Leaving their family members behind also. What are we doing wrong Sister? We're losing so much more than what we gain. I'm thinking the answer is, we must fight together. No one should be left behind. Each one attributing their natural ability and intuitions. This must be the key.

    Thank you for the love Sister Watz! I know I said a bit to much here, but I just needed to express this.

    luv ya Sis!:hearts1:

    Well no Purplemoons, you didn't say too much. Just letting me and the other readers know what this flow stemmed from. How horrible those images must have been to see, and yes, we should all be in this together, in one way or another. To be left not knowing, that's no way to live. I appreciate you going into detail about this sis.

    I know sometimes I can be very chatty, It's a relief to know that this isn't one of those moments.(smile)
    And yes, we should always strive to unite our own!
