    Since coming to America
    After traveling so far
    We've lost our true identity
    And now don't know who we are;

    We've been thoroughly mis-educated
    Taught a false reality
    In an attempt to change our thought process
    To a slave mentality;

    This is part of our punishment
    For not listening to God
    Because of our disobedience
    Our lives are extremely hard;

    We're the only group in America
    Stripped from whence we came
    They deprived us of our history
    They even took away our name;

    Those from China are still called Chinese
    Those from Mexico, still Mexican
    While we've been called Negro, Colored, Black
    And Afro-American;

    Well, regardless of what they call us
    I'm here to spread the news
    Black people wrote the first Bible
    We're the original Hebrews;

    Our punishment won't last forever
    Someday God will take us back
    Imagine the joy of reaching Heaven
    And discovering God is Black.

    :hi: SLENDAH
    Welcome, welcome..
    good to see great minds in progress
    You spoke of MAAT ..from the first word ...to the last. Oh my, they still water us down with their reality..not ours and yes!! we shall again re-turn. For as it's said:
    As it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the END.
    keep pumping us poet, we hear you.
