    Keeping It Real”


    To understand who is man and who is God,
    and who is the black women; and who is the black man.
    It has become a struggle for us as a people,
    to continue to give a white man with know more
    Power than one self; God is God alone to give a man so much control
    Over what we think, how we think, God said I am God Alone,
    to continue to glorify him as a king that renders all powers
    Property of the slave mind. Sister warriors
    of the world who had to fight all
    Obstacles that stood before them,
    I fear not the thought of the whip,
    but the obligation, the strength is
    the moral adjustments to man, and
    nations of strength the creations
    of thought and minds, the labor
    of kings and queens, the wisdom
    of women, and the legacy that
    she must pass own. To our family
    tree, there is no burning crosses,
    there is no block against education,
    responsibility to family roots.

    It takes a village to raise one child.
    There Is no hanging ropes to stop
    black women from being the leaders
    of their family tree. There is know moral adjustments
    only women who refuse to lead.


    Fear not the scorns of those who set
    upon their own self made thrown.
    If man would fear God, and not linger to
    the devil and his wants, than roots
    Shall be the paradise that man live upon this earth.
    When will black women take the responsibility of self.
    Nevertheless if it is the black man are white.
    No color of man can make you do anything you don’t want.
    So when will we as people began to face accountability.
    During slavery there was know blame game.
    All stood as one, so who are we to continue to cry
    To a man who has no powers unless we give it away.

    There is know excuse for those who live by the man man laws.
    There is know agenda that excuses the behavior of some women
    Who live between there legs. So who is man? and who is women?
    It is not the son’s and daughters of the white man;
    Who calls his mother a whore, it is not the white man
    who break the strength of unity among their sisters and brothers.

    It is not the white man that will call his women a b****.
    It is not the white man who will sleep with the slave masters
    Daughter; and turn to the world and say his women is a whore.
    Its not the white man who refuse to come one as a people.

    It is not the white man, who makes black women,
    turn on one another.
    So who shall we blame when we face God?
    It is not the black man it is the black women.
    We as women are obligated, to our family tree, our man is the king,
    It is not the laws that black women make, in her obligation to her family
    Tree, it is not the women who decides her duty to her family roots,
    God wrote it own the stone, if man can betray God, why do we
    As women think anything that we due, will not fail when we
    Live by what we think, and not what was written by God.
    If the father is not in the home, whom do the children follow?
    If we would have waited for marriage
    would we be left with child without honor?

    Is it the black man? Is it black women?
    Being a black women our obligation is not to the white man,
    what we think, what we feel, what they say, what they want.
    If we black women live by the principals of
    God we would not be in this situation.
    So you reap so you sow, I as black women
    I speak the words of love, which my sisters
    would understand the extent of our
    culture is dying, and the term black women
    Shall be bond and sealed without honor.

    It is a woman of wisdom who knows
    she knows, but it is a fool
    that think she knows, and knows not. When our son’s
    call us whores and b******;
    is it the white man
    who formulate the words of there lyric’s?
    It is not what you say, and not what
    you due, is what they see in you.
    Shall we blame the black man for our
    like of communication?
    Should we blame the Blackman for
    destroying our obligations as mother,
    women, nurturer of our family tree call roots?

    Should we blame the black man who would lye down without marriage?
    Should we blame the black man if we act like a dogs in heat?
    Shall we blame the black man and call it rape?
    Shall we blame the black man when we wear our dresses
    Up our rear, when they tell us this is not the key to their hearts?
    Shall we blame the black man when he tells us his reasoning?
    Shall we blame the Blackman when he gives us all the reasoning?
    Black women you are the closes to God, the womb the incubation
    Of his hopes and dreams.


    Shall we blame the black man when we could have said no?
    Shall we blame the black man if we gave up our virginity?
    Shall we blame the black man if we didn’t?
    use protection to protect our self?
    Should we blame the black man if we have?
    4 and 5 children without father?
    Shall we blame the black man for our lack of morals?
    Shall we blame God because he wrote the laws that man should obey?
    Should we blame the black man for the dis obedience to God’s word?

    My obligations is not to treason, my obligation
    is to truth, every black women
    Will feel the scars of her sister, nevertheless
    she represents her self as a queen.
    I have no loyalty to whores and devils who
    tarnish the name of black women.
    My loyalty is to the sisters who bring strength
    to our family tree, there is know
    Back door to truth, nevertheless
    it’s a bitter taste, if black women
    turn theirs backs on truth. She
    shall kill her family roots, God bless
    women with wisdom, I shall go down
    By my self If I must, I shall not let
    my sisters down who shed blood
    to continue to rise the name of black women, the
    mother of Jesus, the chosen of God gift to man.

    Blessings my sisters and brothers, my sisters we are one, from the harriet tubman, soldiertruth, the elders will pass on, but you must carry the torch, many will frown on truth, but warriors walk alone, it is obligation to black women, to reclaim her thrown, it is not a easy battle, but remeber we wear the same scars, your girl children will follow in the path, Black women save the children.
