    Black farmers love
    powered through roots
    deep mississippi lingo
    tame in the justice twist
    da birth of poetry grew
    from the patch of fields
    wisdom learned from da
    voices of momma and
    hand raised by daddy's
    knowledge through struggle
    like black mallass of depth
    the foundation rise

    now it speakz clearly, loudly
    through the new life of da city
    milked from da breast
    sending indingo beats
    waves of motions through
    da souls feeling depth of
    awareness poeticly embracing
    da history of farmers hand

    I AM MY KEEPER AND MY FAMILY
    BOND THEREFORE I SHALL PROTECT

    children of mind
    pose a wealth
    be not afraid of tomorrow
    da whip & chains gone
    I suffer enough for us all
    through the stillness of night
    and the looming beating lash
    to my back , scars tell the story
    of thy history and the depression
    of the minds today
    broken down farmer handz
    blistered tired feet
    scared 4 life on these
    city streets

    MY NAME IS WHO I AM
    NOT WHAT ONE MAY CALL ME
    I AM HISTORY thy family treasure
    and dear GOD i'm here
    :crying:

    when you look back in time
    surely u can place ya self
    in the depth of the black farmer
    and the family history of tymes
    through da struggle and hardship
    the depression and pain the millions
    of cries and whip lash to thy backz
    it keep running from the dirty south
    to the pollution city streets .

    the struggle is part of are history
    and in order for us to move forward
    we must be able to understand, and in some way relive
    what are ancestors have gone through

    beautiful Rich
    keep the flow goin.

    Our history is a part of us that cannot be denied. Poetic verse lives in us, but it did not begin with us, and will not end with us. I like the concept here, flow on brotha.

    That is part of our history, terribly, horrifyingly beautiful.

    Like they say, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

    Thank U 4 this one.

    Peace.
