    My country tears of we
    Da sour land of sad liberty
    I see and sing
    where my forefather's died
    as Africans stood in pride
    against supremacy
    dat no-longer hidez

    My Country of struggling soul
    on da streets of hollow cold
    in tis poverty da system has mold
    taken, beaten and sold
    like chep labor as awareness grow
    living in tis country of a-me-ri-ka
    feeling da harash racism blow

    Fighting da waves of mental slavery
    in my country of doubts and maybe's
    i see and sing
    to someday let our people ring
    ring in freedom from tis cage
    to stop self bitterness and silly rage
    against black on black crime

    I've watch how we now dying
    forgetting to rise and become da great shine
    for my people surely it's tyme
    to teach our inner troops
    these be our very own youth
    we no longer da spook of poof
    raising da bars through da roof

    In my country of hardship & pain
    that hurts and leave a bloody stain
    making us as people not use our brain
    yet we not willing to make our change
    to move on and mark our claim
    as i see and sing is my aim
    not wit da gun of bang)) bang))
    but da mind of unity as united we sang

    My Un-justice league of false hero's
    is nothing more then what was told
    they don't teach our history
    as our future is now so bleep
    in these crazy unworthy streets
    youth on da rise inside state cells
    pitted in danger and harm forth they dewell
    like rotten fruitz in amerika 's funky smell
    when will we come from under there spell

    O' how i wanna stand upon da pride rock
    but da system supremacy set on lock
    so at war i tote my glot
    ready to fight and take back my spot
    as one of the true KINGZ from da motherland
    O' yes our dear but hurting Africa
    so in da battle i quiz my mind as i pop
    i see and sing, refuse to rot
    mentally i jock and jock my aim high
    in my country i tell u no lie
    let's RIDE !

    In truth some anthems would be sung much differently, and you brought the sorrowful reality to the page. Well written scribe.
