    HISTORY
    For the way blacks live
    consider the shape of the design
    how blacks love and how one shine
    arm height and shape
    cushion high off the floor on legs
    pushing forward slavery not dead
    strong in stance powerful skirted
    but yet still not completed
    it's o'kay not to like da fabric
    nor what you seek
    but we are in billions of shades/makes and model
    for da world to see
    apart of a root planted deep beneath da tree
    see black life is a continue piece of history
    we like a chair for we carry mush weight
    refuse to be broken or fall at bay
    no matter the lashies binding of chain
    blackawareness black mentals are stain
    claim not fame or personal goods
    because with out the total us as whole
    one just a fine piece of wood
    mighty blacks built from depth of slaves
    da will one's ancestors died and gave
    The molding is how we stand through poverty
    become age long beyond da struggle
    each stitch made blacks dimensional unique
    we is part of a historic quilt of many styles of patterns
    to our black lives of living upon this land.
    Know thy history end of lesson
