    Never

    We must not ever forget (Never)
    Not one moment
    Of what those before us went through
    When they were used
    And compelled at the point of death
    To create this modern purgatory
    That we were forcibly born into
    And murdered in our innocence
    Served up like gypsies in auschwitz
    To these american notsees.
    We must not ever forgive (Never)
    A single rape
    Every Black Woman's Honor
    Must be redeemed
    For the century
    After century
    After century
    Of psycho-sexual terrorism
    That we are just beginning
    To bring a healing to.
    We must not ever forget (Never)
    The babies
    All the precious, precious babies of us
    They so coldly stole the life from
    A thousand thousand times
    A thousand thousand times
    Then had the audacity
    The unmitigated gall
    To claim they did nothing at all.
    We must not ever forgive (Never)
    This permanent torture
    This forever oppression
    Our whole lives are subjected to
    That teaches our children
    suicide rather than Piety
    And makes our parents
    Drug Addicts of this
    Gunpoint society.
    We must not ever forget (Never)
    We must not ever forgive (Never)
    Not ever, not ever, not ever.

    There's no way, never..ever can I/we forget, cause to do so would mean that history will forever "repeat itself". Hell no, I/we will never, ever forget.
    I know too well of the "lynchings" that took place...never will I forget,
    I know too well of the "rape" of our mothers, sisters, daughters...never will I forget
    I know too well how they "raped" our minds...but couldn't tamper with our spirits.
    To forget where we been, means...we are unaware, where we're going...
    which is, to the grave...
    never, ever will I forget.​
