    Strange how we think
    different they would be
    I went home to Johannsburg
    faces a lot like mine

    Stong facial features with
    pure and warm smiles
    They Welcomed Me
    as I walked through the
    city
    all I could see was walls and walls
    of ME

    Tall, short, thin and stout
    beautiful colors for my eyes
    to see for miles
    My People who do not forsaken
    open arms of love

    Went to this club where I spoke
    of our American Heritage
    anguish, pain, poverty and despair
    but I was quick to re-inforce that
    Jesus was always there within reach
    through prayer

    As they smiled and snapped approval
    I felt Love and Acceptance from my
    Brothers and Sistuahs
    Johannsburg, I will come again to walk
    the soil with my people
    Hand In Hand

    Poetrymama, Back home, how I would love
    To go back home, but I'm chained and jailed
    Within my ancestors toment land

    Seize the Day!
    Great Poem YOU have made!

    Help me! My thread is in labor, giving birth!
    To the most replies a thread has seen on earth!
    Please help me get two- hun replies in Destee!
    Let loyal loving members of the pack hear my plea!

    Ask for an encore, this I request of you to do!
    I’ll put your name in lights, in this threads debut
    Most replies, two- hun humans took their time
    To sociate their names with the most cessful rhyme!

    Ask for an encore in my thread entitled:
    " Dear Alpha Male, please help me, signed the slave from torment land"
