    Black farmers love
    powered through roots
    deep mississippi
    da birth of poetry
    grew in da patch of
    wisdom momma teach
    and raised by daddy's
    knowledge from
    grandma Salley

    now it speaks loud & clear
    new life of da city
    milked from da breast
    sending waves of motions
    throught da soul as u feel
    the poetic depth of embracing
    da history once said
    I am my keeper
    and my family bond
    therefore i shell protect

    Children of mines
    have a wealth mind
    be not afriad of tomorrow
    da whip & chains gone
    i suffered enough for us all
    broken down
    tired feet
    scared 4 life
    my Name is who i am not what
    one's may call me .....I am History
    and dear GOD i'm here...:eek:
