    The Best Me

    Some can be leaders
    in their community,
    some can teach
    to spread our history.
    But me, I have to simply
    become the best me.
    The best me won't wallow
    in self pity and doubt
    giving more things
    for others to gossip about.
    The best me won't forget
    that I originated from the hood
    forgetting that along with the bad
    in people, there is also good.
    The best in me won't
    unintentionally drag us all down
    bringing disappointment and
    confusion when I'm around.
    The best me will inspire
    the young to be their best.
    The best me will show all
    that you can survive any test.
    The best me will reach
    out my hand to others,
    all the weary sisters
    and struggling brothers.
    The best in me
    the best in you
    the best in we
    together
    we can strive to be.

    a teacher that is who I am
    that lead with a gentle hands
    the little ones. The little child
    Encourgement is what I provide
    A finger I point to the sky
    so they can see and realize
    that there is no limit to what
    can be done..as they play
    in the morning sun..but right
    dear children just have fun

    Created program for the young mothers
    to enrich there education
    Speaking softly so they can hear
    That some one love them
    that we do care
    about how they survive
    when they have a little child
    lesson taught lesson leaned
    to believe that there is no limit
    some thing do take some time
    but keep reaching for the sky

    I Volunteer that is what I do
    I am not certify to teach a class
    I have no Degree in Social structure
    All I am is just me
    giving my time willy
    to help our young ones
    don't you see
    all I am is being me :)

    Why Black History

    How did Black History Month come into being and why?
    Some folks take things for granted, but no not i
    i've got to question things
    To find where Truth rings
    And you are like me
    i can see
    So, how did we get here from whence we came
    What's the origin of the thing and it's name?
    The disease of Racism had a lot of people ailing
    The Human Scientists and Doctors were even failing
    To bring about a Civilization based in Reality and Truth
    A quick look in most History Books showed the proof
    His / Story the mockers called it and rightly so
    For it excluded so much that humans need to know
    Other things were changed to support false White Superiority
    And to keep People of Color in a position of inferiority
    Dr. Carter G. Woodsen began to speak
    And fathered Negro History Week
    In the sixties most left Negro and got Black
    The name Negro History began to sound wack
    Black History it became
    Even though it was still about the same
    Then it was expanded to include the month of February
    Causing enemies to really shake and worry
    That things were leading to a Black History Year
    These ignorant ones are still full of fear
    Never really knowing that there is really one True Story
    With all it's facets---pain and glory
    Until that is prominently displalyed
    Complete with all that has been lost, stolen and has strayed
    All people will suffer from the ommission and never be free
    To know True History, Black History, Human His-to-ry

    History of da people
    is the people who care
    this a goal hearts truely
    bare by grace and the
    past but family how long
    will it last
    History is born from
    the deep depth of our
    struggle as many many
    ancestors cross the line
    freeing under ground
    speech of freedom ring
    the march of Dr.King
    the word of truth as
    the last breath of brutha
    Malcolm X many handz
    written words to our
    history from BPP to the
    Deacon of defense
    but yet we continue
    making history as we break
    and cross lines and i open
    arms to the homeless
    the needed and the ill
    i feel my place a table
    to feed every year
    seeing the love of tender
    care
    history is made in unique
    ways
    we all need to give a little
    back to the hope of tomorrow
    past history too the future
    as history is still being written
    new names same list
    as our ancestor's paved our
    way
    let our learning & teaching
    be not in vain nor shame
    us but release us to our
    wisdom mindz our knowledge
    of love , free will and dreams
    HISTORY is unbroken
    as the truth clash for a rebirth

    we da people of no hate
    we the people of self make
    we the people unspoken of
    we the people of love
    we the people of great discovery
    we the people of many struggles
    we the people who yet taste
    da victory but freedom rings
    time we start
    time we see
    and unite in unity
    to our true History
    let it ring !
    as i give unto da people
    of old , jobless, homeless
    hunger and the pain
    i give hope , cloth & food
    to stay in strive of what
    it's all about in Historyyyy!!!!
