    In the beginning doesn’t apply to me.
    I always was
    And always will be.

    My name is legion
    I'm called by many names.
    Universe, Nature, or Aum
    It really doesn't matter,
    they all mean
    the same.

    In the beginning I created the Black race
    I made it in my image
    I’ve gifted it with melanin
    AND IT'S BEAUTY WILL NEVER DIMINISH.

    To know who I am, you will have to know my deeds.
    And to my child
    I will always
    Freely give.

    I once gave
    my only begotten Sun
    In order for you to
    live.

    I intentionally used the black woman because IMO you are the bench mark for beauty. And oh how you are envied by all.

    Peace!

    wow what a powerful piece/peace the words itself evoke such a primal demand for vigor and respect and then the images are just an added bonus. Thank you for this brother poet
