    **I'm not sure where this came from. I just went with what came. Hope you all enjoy.

    The Fabric of Life.
    The Flavor of Reality...
    In the background....bells chime.
    Hear the rhythm and casauly
    ask for the time.

    What is the time?

    What is the time?

    Time for the people of
    color to rise up and become
    the edifices of strength and
    responsibility that we should be.

    How is it that the
    descendants of Egyptian and Nubian
    Princes, Princess', Kings and Queens
    have lost our identities and the
    reason to be?

    How is it that
    our black men,
    once celebrated warriors, intellectuals,
    poets and artists are now
    violent, egotistical, worthless
    shells of former glory.
    Like a war torned country;
    desolate and uncomplete.
    Lacking and doused in defeat.

    Our black women,
    once the shining black pearls of an entire
    hemisphere,
    now reduced to sluttish, empty-headed,
    pimped diva's.
    No respect for themselves and they
    recieve no respect.
    Treated like pure sh....I'll shut my mouth!

    Its time to arise,
    Its time to embrace the
    history that our ancestors strove
    to write and story.
    A new sun has risen, and a new day
    peeps over the horizon;
    come bathe yourselves in the golden
    essence of rebirth and re-discovery.
    Come wear strength and pride like a double skin,
    while moving with the inbred grace and class we
    inherited from our ancient kin.

    We search for Africa.
    Many want to return to Africa,
    but how many of us realize that WE are
    Africa and if we want to save
    the dying history of our former nation,
    then we must first start by
    reclaiming the former us.

    So true...So True.


    It is up to the men to bring about the change. Because when were not abusing. Things can't remain the same. It's time for the women to demand. That we keep our promise of love to our mother land. When this happens. The women will receive the respect they deserve. The men will be crowned once again and lead like we know we can. Stop the drinking and drugging to excess. Stop being afraid of violence from those in our neighborhoods that grip everyone with fear of retaliation. They are killing us slowly, and the silence is welcomed by the hand that feeds the madness. Then it all comes together.

    The law knows those breaking it. They have the names and know the suspects. It's time to press the law to perform. The preamble to the constitution states all the rights we deserve and should demand.

    PREAMBLE

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.



    Thank you for this flow. :bomb:

    Knowing, understanding
    and taking pride in
    your heritage will
    bring one to a threshold
    of freedom...one has
    yet to know...

    Inspiring peace!


    Pay the love forward...

    Find Africa within...that is the truth
    Seeing the map of Africa won't connect you to the land.Feeling..and yearning for the life that was will..
    A life corrupted by those who didn't know Africa always has a way of finding a way to its people
    Its breath it's what African Americans call wind
    I'm from Africa,i'm in Africa...sorry for the hurricanes and tornados in the US but thats just our way of calling our sistas and brothas back home.

    thanx for the piece
