    Im tired of being oppressed

    Im tired of brothas killing themselves

    Im tired of sistas degrading themselves

    Im tired of Whites stealing from black wealth

    Im tired of blacks disrespecting their healths

    Im tired of watching us suffer from mental slavery

    Im tired of lost sistas breeding crack babies

    My gosh I am tired of the insanity

    Im tired of society looking down on me as if Im not apart of humanity

    Im tired of our own selling us out

    Im tired of these fake black puppet leaders misrepresenting us

    Im tired of the government lying on the dollar bill "In God We Trust"

    Im tired of brothas treating sistas like hoes

    Im tired of sistas calling brothas "no good negros"

    Im tired of blacks treating each other like foes

    Im tired of the government keeping us trapped in ghettos

    Im tired of rappers running around with "***** egos"

    Im tired of our youth looking up to these bafoons as heros

    When are we going to get it together as a people

    Im tired, like P.E said "there's a poison going on"

    and Im tired of us contributing to it as the experimental 'pawn'!

    Most of all...Im tired of being TIRED!

    feeling you on this
    bruther for real
    lot of weight
    on our shoulder
    rest and start fresh
    the road is long
    in the struggle
    the wheel are
    turning
    slowly
    but surly
    hearing your
    message clearly
    much love and respect
    Peace

    Pharaoh...I'm tired too,

    you brought summation to the whole...
    or should I say "hole", the holes in black community
    the very thought of a fraction of these problems,
    is mentally exhausting...

    Much truth in that piece. I'm tired of preaching the same message to audiences that don't want to hear it!

    Thanx for your input islander. It's sad, it's like our people love to wallow in their own ignorance and self-destruction.
