    Deep diasporic discussions
    develop diagnosis for foul festered
    feelings of falsehoods

    on who we are...
    are we...

    negative nonsensical ****** negating
    commonsense

    do we really rally around realities
    that resist respect?
    to many of us do...
    ...nonsensical ******

    are we...

    coons conning craniums constantly
    creating causes for chaos?
    the colored channels on motion filled
    crayola boxes cry change but
    the shytcom remains the same...

    falsehoods...
    are we really...

    savages sheltered by colonial christians
    sins slave shaped and raped of our culture
    so we assimilate...
    ...is it too late

    to reclaim reshape resurrect and connect
    memories to monumental moments of mastery
    of this world's history...

    or will we wake unending days uniformly understanding

    feelings of falsehoods?

    I felt you on every line...I pray for a resurrection of blackness that will not bend nor be weakened by the influences of surrounding cultures...cuz we can't (note the native indian) bear it much longer without change. Your poetic questions are awakening and thought provoking. Pray with me for change...all things are possible...even this.

    "..is it too late

    to reclaim reshape resurrect and connect
    memories to monumental moments of mastery
    of this world's history...

    or will we wake unending days uniformly understanding


    Your sista in poetry,

    Joyce

    We remain seperated by our tongues...

    As long ago when in slave ships
    deep below
    Africans from foreign lands
    Escaped the commoness of
    every black man
    Speaking not the same words
    They spoke in tongues but no
    oneheard
    A time when chaos is crucial
    to the colonial machination
    when we thrive on individual
    alieanation
    God's creation, european
    abbreveation...
    Falsifying our origination
    Forgetting to tell us that
    Africa was the beginning
    of civilization and creation...
    FALSEHOODS!
