    MESSAGE TO
    REVOLUTIONARY WOMEN


    Black Women, Black Women,
    Hold your head up, and look ahead.
    We too are needed in the revolution.

    We too are strong
    We too are a threat to
    the oppressive enemy.
    We are revolutionaries.

    We are the other half
    of our revolutionary men.
    We are their equal halves
    may it be with
    gun in hand,
    or battling in streets
    to make this country a socialist lead.

    Sisters, let's educate our people.
    Combat liberalism, and combat male chauvinism.
    Awaken our men to the fact that
    we are no more nor no less than they.
    We are as revolutionary as they.

    For too long, we have been alone.
    For far too long
    we have been women without men,
    for far too long
    we have been double oppressed,
    not only by the capitalist society,
    but also by our men.

    Now we are no longer alone,
    our men are by our sides.
    We revolutionary men and women
    are the halves of each other.
    We must continue to educate our men,
    and bring their minds from a male
    chauvinistic level to a higher level.
    Our men need, want and will
    love the beautiful children,
    that come from our fruitful wombs.

    They need our trust and encouragement
    as well as we need theirs.
    They need us to educate,
    them, the people and our children
    as well as we need them to educate us.
    Sisters, we are being called by life itself.
    We are being called by the revolution.
    We are mothers of revolutionaries,
    with us is the future of our people.
    We my sisters, are mothers of revolution
    and within our wombs is the army of the people.

    Sisters! Revolution Is Here!
    Bring Forth The Army!
    Bring Forth the Guns!
    We my sisters are revolutionary
    women of revolutionary men!
    We are mothers of revolution!

    Messages like nubian goddess' always make you feel good. Unfortunately too many of us look at things like this, smile, shake our heads in agreement and then turn them into cliche's and never make them come alive. There's power in these words but they won't become powerful until we lift them off the page and wear them every day instead of designer clothes. Do we believe this is true or not? Interestingly, people are not as fickle as some would like us to think we are. People become what they believe is real and true. If we don't see this attitude being practiced, then what does that tell you?

    Right On!

    I totally agree with everything your poem touches on. A lot of times people look at me like I'm crazy when I start kickin around concepts like yours because I'm only 21. Regardless of my age, I know my heritage. I know my boundaries and limitations, as well as my unlimited potential. Too often today, you see so many young black being complacent and being numb to the disrespect and the dishonoring that we receive not only from white people, but from our own men. It becomes a vicious cycle. I think it's time for sistahs to wake up for real. We need to recognize our beauty, celebrate our accomplishments, and put to use our God-given strength. We are here as our brothas help meet, their supporters. It's time to stop accepting what is given to us, and fight for what is rightfully ours. Sistahs, look at how we are represented in videos, in the media, even in politics. It's time to put on our armor. It's time for us to be the warriors that we have been called by our men and our God to be. Props to Nubian Goddess for this eye opener.
