    It’s rough on a
    Blak Man
    Needing MRIs
    And CAT scans
    And don’t even know he can

    Doctors
    In on the conspiracy
    Trying to exterminate me
    Through my
    Ignorance

    I see you

    Talk’n ‘bout
    You can’t stand the Blak Man

    ‘til you can comprehend
    you best recognize
    where TRUE power lies

    HOLD UP
    hold up
    .
    .
    .
    In the wake of
    TRUTH
    Reality dictates
    Another way
    another avenue to be
    TRUE
    True
    We be KINGS and QUEENS
    From way back
    …have traveled
    across many lands
    thru
    nigg*r
    Negro
    AFRo-amerICAN
    To being a Blak Man

    Creator
    Inventor
    Doctor
    Lawyer
    And poet, too

    FEEL me.

    Let the truth be told just as it is. I feel your frustration, but yours is a power the world has yet to comprehend, and never could fully conceive. Keep these thoughts flowing strong, positive, and free.

    THANKS, Blak.

    it's time for us to stop accepting what's TOLD to us...and know what's REQUIRED of us...to be the people we were meant to be.
