    Sometimes I get angry, mind filled with rage
    Cursing this cruel world
    For what it has done to people like me
    Oppressed because the color of my skin
    Oppressed for being kiss by the sun
    Oppressed for being the "Original" one......

    You lock me in chains like Im an animal
    Calling me a "Black Beast" or Savage
    But who's the real savage?
    Who's the one that brought destruction,
    where ever they went?
    Who's the one that murdered, raped and stole from indignous peoples?
    Who's the one that re-wrote history to fit their own pathetic one?
    It sure wasn't my people.....

    You look down on me like Im non-human
    Then you want to get mad for not being patriotic
    What the hell have you ever done for me?
    This country was build on coruption, greed, blood and evil
    We face police brutality, crack, gunz, institutionalize racism and a whole lot.
    While our people in Afrika are being slaughtered over diamonds

    But you best to believe
    All that's going to change soon
    Because we will rise up as a people
    And when we do....
    You're going to feel a great wraft
    A wraft so powerful and mighty
    that you will perish from the face of this Earth
    Oh yes, and we the Original People of this planet
    Will reclaim our rightful position and live in great peace
    and harmony amongst each other...
    We will have no worries about your wicked nature
    ever disturbing the rightious people of Mother Earth....

    Black Power!

    u smile at me and laff
    with me
    until u don't need me

    have dranks with me
    checkn tendencies
    go back and tell the staff

    u think u foolin me
    but i can see
    cause wisdom's in my soul

    can't speak my mind
    aint worth the time
    so i write it in words

    u hire me then fire me
    try to expire me
    but it just can't be

    bout to get out the game
    words a powerful thing
    my outlet is my poetry

    I'm feeling a touch of writer's block yall....:(
    So it may not be as good as I'd like it to be.

    It's hard to be a black teen stuck in this gruesome society
    Learning how to find my pride quickly and quietly
    Yet learning to deal with the blows that reside in my mind
    From untouchable stereotyping disturbing my divine
    Beauty and serenity which I try so hard to find
    Not wanting to realize that we all have our faults
    You constantly try to surface my imperfection
    You continue to laugh, point, and make jokes
    Yet your daughter continues to tan herself and make coats
    Of fake melanin which is natural in my complexion
    Beckoning me to continue to be lost in space
    As if my presence here is just a waste
    With the evil seeds you try to constantly plant
    You must don't know my 7x great-granddaddy completed your transplant
    You try to make me blind
    Try to make me think you sit at home watching baseball,eating apple pie
    Saluting to your poster of Uncle Sam every night
    But I see your imperfection in all of your spite
    You don't wanna believe you're just as Amerikkkan as I
    Every day I look at my niece's beautiful eyes
    And wonder how Amerikkka can call her a minority
    When she seems like the world and more to me...

    LOVE fought HATE and HATE was stong but HATE forgot.... who came first and who blew up the spot....where the flow started and who made HATE thirst....it was LOVE ya'll, LOVE came first.

    LOVE created the NILE and the cradle of life....LOVE took a RIB had the first bar-be- que and made the first WIFE.

    IT WAS LOVE.

    LOVE makes the world go round, all HATE does is make people frown, so next time HATE dares bring you down.....makes you feel depressed, defeated, and uptight....remember....

    IT WAS LOVE....LOVE....LOVE.... that said....



    LET THERE BE LIGHT....


    Seek me in ALL things and there I will be found.(I know it was weak, but I just had to jump in) lol

    Be blessed!!
