    My people come from the south
    Although I am from the west

    My people perservered through Jim Crow
    And dispered up north and along the east coast crest

    My people became teachers, and lawyers
    Speakers and writers

    Leaders and Deep thinkers
    My people almost merged with the Black Panther Party

    Maybe that's why I am somewhat militant in speech
    Because passionately my heart speaks

    My people

    brought their souls from

    The Coasts of Africa

    My People

    Young and Old

    You cannot help but speak passionately, given the blood that courses throught your veins. Let it be known, poet.
