    stolen legacies
    teenage pregnancies
    corrupt families
    disease flowing through bloodstream
    abnormal realities
    not certain what it means
    hadn't really come that far since king said he had a dream
    sisters going to extremes
    to become money and **** fiends
    brothers dying over paper
    they say they gotta' get that cream
    it's hard to let freedom ring
    in the midst of police brutality
    and attempts to make me believe
    that i am from a cursed seed
    but that's a fallacy
    my melanated domination has got you acting cowardly
    you fabricate the truth
    try and feed that **** to me?
    my soul won't digest it
    nourished by spirituality
    and i'll lay blows to your ego
    that'll be earth shattering
    you're weak
    or so it seems
    the strength of my pumped fist
    will make you see fatality
    i'll take my afro pick
    comb out my sister's weave
    while deficating on earth
    to fertilize the unborn seed
    i'll tell you who i be
    i'm nubian
    i'm african
    i'm 360 degrees
    i'm co-creator with god
    so you don't wanna' **** with me
    matter of factly
    beware when i unleash this divinity
    because your superficial ways of life then become foriegn to me
    you see, i attack with an estrogen filled authority
    and i serve as queen
    for those kings
    who know to honor me
    so how dare you come to me
    all wide open and buck wild
    bro' i don't give a ****
    about your plush lifestyle
    i got brothers on death row
    walking that green mile
    i'm yelling free mumia
    hacking fbi files
    in his commisary
    i'm lacing pies with nail files
    while devil gullioni yelling
    "the towers, they're coming down!"
    igniting an inquenchable fire with crooked smiles
    and i swear they got horns and tails yo'
    they living foul
    but in the meanwhile
    let's get up on this revolution
    let's combine our ideas
    let's come up with some resolutions
    let's try keeping it real
    in the spirit of seale and huey newton
    and if it is time to kill
    it's our community they're polluting
    no drive by shootings
    unless we're blazing capital hill
    paint the white house black
    take that **** back that banneker built
    and we must forever keep our steal
    always ****ed back and ready
    to eliminate the devil yall
    by any means that are necessary

    and the fire of truth rages on!

    we used to say
    how we would change our days
    be stronger when we prayed
    but there was a sign that said "help wanted"
    and we became entranced in the matrix anyway...

    this is tight,

    One,
    Derrick Jay

    Hey Giiiirlllll!! You are on fire!!! I am so glad you finally made it here. I have been telling the Griots about you and now they can see for themselves. But dayum, you step into this site with straight heat. I appreciate it too because there are so many topics that needs versing and you touched on a lot of them with that looooong rendition. When you simmer down and defuse some of that fire, please go into some details and let the knowledge flow.

    "and attempts to make me believe
    that i am from a cursed seed
    but that's a fallacy
    my melanated domination has got you acting cowardly
    you fabricate the truth
    try and feed that **** to me?
    my soul won't digest it
    nourished by spirituality
    and i'll lay blows to your ego
    that'll be earth shattering "

    if only that was elaborated for those may not get past the curse words to know why the ego would receive blows that could be an earth shattering experience...hmm. I will just wait for your return to lay in more layman terms....Thanks for the love, the appearance, and the energy. Represent B'ham in this piece, no doubt.

    Everytime I take a moment to bounce through this spot, I always land right where I need to be. Interesting...

    All power to your mission, Sister Warrior Patrice.
