    (Inspired by a trip to the slave dungeons in Ghana,West Africa)

    My darling baby girl
    My precious little boy
    Please forgive me for what i'm about to do
    i can't express how much i truly love u
    The greatest joys in my life have been because of u
    That's why i cant let u suffer
    the things that i've gone through
    i felt tranquility as i held u in my womb
    all the while knowing that when u are born
    u would suffer too soon
    Cause they can't see the splendor and beauty that is u
    To them u are profit and they'll treat u like a tool
    I can't bear to see our family separated
    I can't bear to see them looking at u
    with hatred burning in their eyes
    and anger in their hearts
    when u brighten my world
    Before u living was cold, lonely and dark
    But the instant i picture the smiles
    of my lovely girl and boy
    My world is overflowing with insumountable joy
    So please forgive me for what i'm about to do
    And understand how much i truly love u
    Cause before u'll be enslaved
    u'll be barried in u'r grave
    And go home to u'r Creator and be FREE
    So Please forgive me
