    This piece is characteristically unsual and some the lines are used in metaphor. check it out!






    My legacy is a reflection of a thousand moons.
    Its embodies the truth and diffuse light. And
    carries an elusive tune beyond comprehension
    or the capacity for such insight. Its expressed
    out loud,black & proud,became self instructional
    and created its own style. Not even beautiful
    fabrics or patterns can match its design,cause
    my legacy is prettier than new colors on walls,
    and its formed in alignment of words and can be
    found riding the surface of poetry lines. As the
    world turned,it slipped off the tongues of central
    africa,richly draped in a dashiki,speaking swahili,
    representing righteousness,phenomenalism and
    substantialness. I have a legacy thats religiously
    save,strong like airwaves,with force that swirled
    and twirled the ends of the black girl's braids like
    the milky way. And it remains two hundred and
    sixty five million strong,connected to the revolu-
    tionary struggle with similarity of the earthtone.


    The expression of my legacy is soul free,innovational,
    unconventional,and sultry. It has brought forth an
    inspiring contribution for the liberty and recognition
    of black women. For many years sistas have been
    looked upon as weak incompetent creatures and
    because of my sincere dedication for black women's
    freedom,feminism is now recognized and my revolution
    will be televized. So keep your television on and stay
    tuned in,my negro existence will funk ya t.v set and
    consume ya wind. My legacy is wisdom, knowledge,
    a fresh pair of sneakers, the vibration in your speakers,
    an african queen and 16 bottles of afro sheen. I'am a
    black awareness,you can find me on every page in the
    essence magazine. I'm disassociated with cultural
    boundaries. I've held the hands of every nationality,
    my nature knows no color-line. I'am a product of years
    of oppression,now renewed and still at it, illmatic like
    nas. Preparing a better place and time for my children's
    children and each and every generation to come. My
    legacy is virtue, the talk of the town, and the latest
    news. Its here to provide strength for the lost and give
    hope to the inner city blues. My place in this world will
    last for eternity,resting on bookshelves,expressed through
    spoken words and remembered as a piece of ameican history.
