    so you don't like what i have to say
    not that you've been listening away
    beening singing and tapdancing for too long
    always to my own beat, for you this is wrong
    can't feel my rhthym cuz you've got no soul
    lost in your own reality, a heart stone cold
    i give you warmth and you end up sunburned
    through the graves of those before me upturned
    but i absorb you and generate more heat
    my continued strength you can't even compete
    won't let you beat me down, it's been tried many times before
    but I have the spirit of Robert Martin and his folklore
    he could not be broken and evil made him
    nevermind from what his ways may have stemmed
    am I black in your eyes, all that is wrong
    you only wish you could be this strong
    try to "raised" me, renovate and sell me as a condominum
    but only paying me the bare minimum
    underestimated, degradated, integrated
    my contributions always being negated
    but I will not be discounted to zero
    your loved ones are not my heroes
    or i'd would be still riding the back the bus
    and I'm called obnoxious because I cuss
    well kiss my big black ***
    i bare it all, and do it with class
    head up high, i'm "used to" being stripped bare
    it is my darkness, my beauty, this is what you beware
    hiding your corrupt soul and stiff smiling face
    and you say it ain't about "race"
    but I'll continue to move forward, ahead
    I don't find comfort in the souls of the dead.

    yeah

    do your thing let it out
    and when you know you and what you're dealing with
    you've won half the battle

    stay strong

    stillventing...

    the greasepaint comes off
    i'm ready to kick ***
    i'm taking names and numbers
    and it seems yours is up next!
    dressed in dreadlocks, baldhead, or afro
    always wearing black
    since that's the only way you see me
    not constrains, no holds bar,
    still you want to keep me in chains
    ropes of your own reality
    the the resistant keep me strong
    AND STILL I MOVE FORWARD

    you want me to forget
    what i will always remember
    i am it and it is me
    and that is where i come from
    so call me obnoxious
    and i resoundingly reply
    "thank you!"


    Thanks for the love and the listening ears. Peace and love!

    Truly,

    Thandiwe

    Pure Nitro!

    Thandiwe, this is rough and ready! Love how you strip this down to the bare essentials, while using word play in a beautiful way. Best vent I've read in a long time! Big ups, and much props!

    JAH Lives.
