    Good morning! I thought this morning I'd share a competition piece with y'all.

    DISCLAIMER: This poem contains the N-word. But I know it bothers some people, so if you are one, you might want to skip this poem. (i see the there is an automatic editor... that's a good thing!)

    If not, read on!


    I AM
    the atomic bomb of all insults
    my name symbolizes intense hate and immense pride
    i can cast an entire generation of men into hell
    their memory keeps me alive
    and no, you don't have to speak to me
    or even say my name, cause baby--
    i can read your mind
    no one has seen more people take their last breath
    or caused more living men to withhold it
    my stare signifies a history of
    stolen lies
    stolen wives
    stolen cries
    made proud men hang their heads in shame
    made some wallow in it
    some rise from my ashes
    and revel in it
    others religiously invoke my name
    most of them too stupid to use anything else
    i am studied like a college major
    or left to collect dust on some forgotten shelf
    from the biggest and strongest men
    to the richest and most powerful
    i can't be touched, while
    i'll allow 12-year old ghetto boys
    to call on me all day long
    those who created me now fear me
    like an eternal wrong
    some try to avoid me
    others embrace what i stand for
    some wish they could strangle me
    captured like the enemy's flag
    or cure me like an infected sore
    a prisoner of war
    a volatile situation
    an explosive core
    a powerful weapon
    a beautiful song
    a death sentence
    a nuclear bomb
    i am an identity
    i am a religion
    i am a history
    i am a mission
    i am a people
    i am a sword
    i am immaculate
    i am a whore
    from the most educated of men
    to the drunk in the gutter
    i am a nation left in the water
    i am the devil
    some call me "god"
    cast out from Eden into Nod
    an indication of guilt
    a reason to kill
    a convenient scapegoat
    an excuse for "free will"
    can't translate me, cause i have no equal
    i am as ambiguous as the words "bad" and "sick"
    the embodiment of evil
    i am timeless, formless, and profoundly patriotic
    i am a window into a people
    i can be your mother or your father
    one drop
    keep me, i am yours
    allow the absence of color to get near me
    and even your president will know his racial place
    the greatest leaders on earth
    wouldn't dare touch my face
    deny them my use
    you will forever own the fire i wield
    cause you hold the fuse
    while they created me
    you liberated me
    found like the lost treasure
    the measure of acceptance some men
    will never obtain
    it's internationally known
    NOT to call my name
    i am a sign
    that the greatest nation on earth
    created the most disgusting
    reviled
    filthiest
    nastiest
    and most unacceptable word ever heard
    nothing can describe me
    or the damage i've caused
    i be the original Holocaust
    can't erase my past
    or clean me up
    or whitewash my sons
    if the mouth was a gun
    then i be the trigger
    i am the first American institution
    the father of all mankind
    the original civilization
    but then they named me
    ******

    “******”

    and they say...

    "but words can never hurt me." but degrading me persuades me to action...or a reaction to your satisfaction at eliciting a reaction from me...even though you cannot see what's within me...cannot know the pain you've ignited in my core...that opens the door to that dark place that i dare not tread, YOUR WORDS GOT INTO MY HEAD.

    loved the way you spelled it out.

    Say brother RICH, think we could get this brother involved in Friday Night Throw Down again, it would be super to hear him pump out this volume, for real.

    Yes sir brother HSF Moe,

    Mic's aren't all that expensive either, got mine at you know where (Wal-Mart:)), for real.

    The Friday Night Throw Down I talked about is what normally happens on Friday Nights. Poets/Poetess' spit their pieces out loud over the mic.

    Brother $$RICH$$ will be the co-ordinator to get that going again; hopefully, I'll see you there and the many others poets....Peace In my brother friend.
