    Fact is ...
    *If I were WHITE, I wouldn't want to live a BLACK LIFE!!

    Reality is ... I don't want to be white!
    I may be
    broke, black, misaligned, and lonely
    But GOD loves me...

    Others ostracize
    deceive and deny equality
    on all four sides of my
    squared circle
    inside a cyclical cycle
    of life

    In STEREO you hear and see
    me as TYPICAL
    even when I no longer fit
    the negative mode

    So- sigh - a - tee wants quick
    relief would rather
    disassociate me and
    cateogorize
    classify
    gentrify
    then plan geno/homo/cide
    to remove me

    I suffer human indignation
    and have felt the hard slap
    of slurs against my mocha
    brown skin
    those insults leave cuts and
    scrapes on my cheeks
    along with resentment tears
    that stream down and sting inside
    of pale hollow pores
    my eyes are blurred from being
    bloodshot red with outrage
    from seeing their
    obsessive attempts to
    maintain a refined
    white race

    disenfranchized
    Disenfranchised
    DISenfranch(I)sed
    I am dis*en*fran*chized

    and I am tired of being
    unequal
    unemployed
    underemployed
    undressed
    unforseen
    and for never being uplifted
    for the skills talents
    and abilities that I possess
    with my uninhibited spirit
    I am tired
    I am broke
    I am black
    I am misaligned
    I am lonely

    But there's one thing that
    I'm sure of
    ... My God Loves all of the black that is within Me

    Five Blak Raised Fist Award Of Poetic "X" cellence goes to.....

    N2UrSoul!!!!!

    ****, ****, ****, ****....I am shaking my head and picking up my dropped jaw. What you been reading? Assata Shakur? Angela Davis? The 10 Points? What? Isis Papers? Frantz Fanon? What? This man right here needs to go back to the drawing board because the one I've been using evidently is lying to me somewhere.

    **bowing my head to your greatness**
