    OK Family this is my first attempt at this poetry thing

    May this day shine
    May it bring u happiness
    May it also make u wise

    May it show favor in your eyes
    May it bless u though out time
    May the wisdom of the ancestors show
    May they teach u so u will know

    May u not want, but all be given
    May u stand tall and may u be proud
    May it not be the pride of vanity but
    May it be the pride of being a man

    May our black-ness shine throughout the world
    To..
    Hold, nurture and cuddle our little boy and girl

    May we bring forth courage to take back, our rightful due,
    That's...
    Been snatched from us, without a clue

    You dropped a hot piece, that's very good to see,
    Soooo...
    Here's a standing ovation just for you Lilpea
    Great work poet!​
