    In my mind's eye I conjure up your image
    Cause I have faith that you yet thrive
    Although your existence is debated
    like you are just an urban legend
    But in you I will believe till I die

    When history is being depicted
    Seldom is your image recorded
    Always relegated to the margins
    Like an irrelevant afterthought
    But in you I will believe till I die

    Though you in dwell in the shadows
    Invisible and forgotten you are not
    For even as the world discredits you
    I marvel at your extraordinary being
    For in you I will believe till I die

    Many have lose their confidence in you
    For many imitators have claimed to be you
    Misrepresenting and tarnishing your image
    Yet I won't be misled by the optical illusion
    For in you I will believe till I die

    Today I must proclaim your existance
    For it hurts me deply to see folks deny you
    Due to their lack of recent personal testimony
    Forgetting that we've all seen you in your glory
    But in you I will believe till I die

    Today I demystify the rigamore surrounding you
    I declare there is such a thing as a GOOD BLACK MAN
    And not just one elusive entity but a community full
    He's out there in every neighborhood handling business
    Unseen because he lacks the time to "peacock" for you
    He's too busy...
    living,
    striving,
    surviving,
    thriving,
    excelling,
    protecting,
    building,
    and just doing that which he was called to do.
