    like the full span of an eagles wings
    while bassing in the wonders of the miraculous sun
    I embrace my blackness
    like the lone wolf
    paying attributes to the moon
    I embrace my blackness
    Like the almighty stallion
    galloping through the meadows
    with the wind at it's sides
    I embrace my blackness
    No one has to tell me to love me
    no one has a right to steal my heritage
    across the dessert sands my feet have burned
    my mouth parched from dryness
    and still I embrace my blackness
    the beat of my beginings echoes in my soul
    while singing in my ear my blackness shall
    forever be
    So I hold my head high
    with my shoulders positioned back
    as my ancestors dance around me
    as I embrace my blackness
    my heart is fed
    my spirit have kissed my guardians
    and their protection have engulfed
    my being
    AS I EMBRACE MY BLACKNESS
    HAVE YOU EMBRACED YOURS?

    " like the lone wolf "

    Not running on anyone elses time.. one out for the moon.

    Embracing the real.. and the truth

    I feel you. You know the wolf is a strong symbol and has deep meanings. I saw the wolf in a lady friends eyes.. I wanted her to finish me like a happy meal. But she only bite me and left me howling for her.

    Only a lady of the C- Nation.. can do this.
