    Land of the free...
    Home of the brave...
    Dirty money is
    "The American Way"

    Nothing good comes from dirty money
    Money is the root of all evil
    Money has corrupted America
    And money has corrupted my people

    Home of the brave is home of the slave..
    so how can I be free
    When I feel that even the NAACP and Al Sharp
    don't give 2 cents about me..

    You want me to care bout global warming...
    well I gotta feed my son
    I didn't mess up this Coutry..
    don't know how to undo what's been done

    Spend my doe for Christmas..
    nah, I'm heating up my home
    Cause I had a man and he left me here
    and I gotta do this on my own..

    So what do I care about ....
    I care about us first...
    Black people.. my people
    becasue we have always had it the worst!

    So I will rise up..
    meet with soldiers figure out how to help the Jenna Six..

    So I will rise up..
    talk to my sistah's and bothah's say our families need to be fixed

    So I will rise up.. and say real bold..
    America is not for me..
    And the day I realized I'm fighting for us not them
    is the day I was set free....

    America.. America...
    will always leave you scared...
    So I don't put my faith in American or it's men...

    I only put my faith in God......

    And who is God... yea, he is the light.. he also is "I AM"
    and "I AM" hiphop... HipHop rules.....

    I know there's a few "soldiers" out there who understand!

    Hi Miss Lady
    Very tight flow.
    What I enjoyed most about your poem is that you have a plan.
    And that you're not letting the disappointment of what’s going on.
    Stop you from do what you know and feel is best for you and yours

    Peace~N~Love

    What I mean...... is that when I was young I looked to hiphop and found a type of peace..... "brown skin woman your a queen and not a ***".. "self destruction"... "be a father to your child"... "sister..sister".....

    I felt impowered... we had a voice.... it became strong!.....

    now what does our voice say... "i'm in love with a stripper"..."clap your hands if you got a bank roll".. "to the window to the wall .. till the sweat ..now skeet".......

    but guess what... sisters' in the hood statistically are the most diagnosed with HIV... brothers still killing each other... glorifying a life that can never ever love you back.... our families are broken... and all I hear is bling bling, b****, sex .. kill etc.

    we still oppressed, and we have our part in that......

    SO I'M ANGRY.... VERY ANGRY... BECAUSE I GO TO WORK AND THE PEOPLE I WORK WITH BIGGEST PROBLEM IS WE CAN'T WEAR JEANS TO WORK...

    MY PROBLEM... ONE MISTAKE AND I CAN'T TAKE CARE OF MY FAMILY... I'M BACK TO THE BLOCK WERE THERE'S HEROIN NEEDLES AND THE STENCH OF POVERTY ALL OVER...

    I HAVE A SON... THEY WANT TO LOCK HIM UP.. THEY WANNA SEND HIM TO FIGHT IN WAR .. (EVENTUALLY).. THEY WANT HIM TO BE A WOMAN BEATER... A DRUG DEALER...

    HE AIN'T SUPPOSE TO MAKE IT...

    HE WILL... IF IT KILLS ME....

    "A MAN HAS NO REASON TO LIVE... UNLESS HE HAS SOMETHING THAT HE WOULD DIE FOR"....

    AND FOR YA'LL MY PEOPLE ... I WOULD DIE..... BUT AMERICA CAN GO TO HELL ON THE HELL EXPRESS BECAUSE IT'S SYSTEMATICALLY SET UP TO MAKE MY LIFE AND YOURS A LIVING ONE"...........

    PEOPLE STAY AWAY FROM ME CAUSE I'M THIS ANGRY BUT EVERYBODY THAT IS OPPRESSED SHOULD BE ANGRY.. AND USE THAT ANGER TO MOTIVATE THEMSELVES TO BE EVERYTHING THAT THEY SAY YOU CAN'T BE!

    Well, if it's that bad and you are that disappointed, perhaps you should consider leaving. Go live in another country that you beleive will give you the happiness that you deserve and desire. You do have that option since it appears you are bitter and unhappy. Just sayin'......

    Who are you to make such a suggestion, and upon what basis?

    This is poetry and carries tremendous literary freedoms related to prose, Xeon.

    Yes indeed my sister, channel that anger into a source of energy that will fuel your engine and take you to where ever it is that they say you can not go!!!!! Power to the those who will seize it....
