    I just want to come back
    Black
    Come back to simple
    Things like
    Kool Aid with too much
    Sugah
    And Mayonnaise sandwiches
    I want to come back black
    To walking around and, and, and, and, seeing old men
    Pull the top of there hats
    To say hello
    To when family
    Meant family
    My frustration goes beyond
    My head call it goes beyond
    My walk of my hip talk
    I want to come back black
    like old skool
    jams and coalt 45 bottles
    when your momma would yell your full name
    EXODUS LEE WILLIAMS GET YOU *** IN HER FO" I'SE COUNT TO

    three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine...

    what mama...


    I want to come back black
    to when the sunset was a sure thing
    to when know we was kings and queens I just wanna come
    back
    black
    like a fly on the wall of your thought process
    I wanna come back black.....

    You wanna come back to those times? I say go back my brotha...the clock only ticks to the tock we talk....great read...can't really I can relate much to the African American way of life, but I can sure remember a lot of things about my community that we did way back when we played in the streets till' your mamma, threatened to kill you if you didn't come back this instant...every older woman was "ma" and older man was "baba"...and I can go on and on and on...but hey, I feel u on the days gone by..

    lo'
