    Don’t you know what it means to be Black?
    Come over here and let me pull your ear.
    I have been where you find yourself
    Feeling like nothing much is going right.
    When that happens I learn a thing
    These are the time’s to bring
    Out the best of you
    You don’t have a thing to prove
    Black have skills you know we rule
    Innovators unlike the world has known
    Don’t worry that you feel alone.
    I like the solitude it gives me time
    To gather the essentials to clear my mind
    Then after I take and measure
    Black mind comes alive and unfold like treasure
    I come; you come up… up if in vicinity of me
    Black is love and sharing
    We two make it three
    Quiet your mind; listen to the wind as it blows
    How loud silence can be in the midst of noise.
    Take a moment take in this day, just being here alive
    I understand it is easy to react
    But that is something we must work on as Blacks.
    The trick is to hesitate, they say count to ten.
    But that is too long but the concept is real
    We come from the mind and words that we speak
    Are powerful revelations to shiver the weak?
    The weak is any enemy no matter the foe
    First they are thrown off balance by the silence you show
    Now Black deliver the message they have not learn in life
    They know nothing about how to live when come strife
    That is why they mess things up, scramble things so it seems extra hard
    Back to that moment when I asked this line
    Can you hear the silence when the noise is loud?
