    Nubian King (I Salute You)

    Nubian king I salute you although society wants to erase replace disgrace and shoot you down like a fighter plane flying over unauthorized territory* They label you enable you and strip you of all your beauty and glory* You are not destined for solitary you are not destined for the mortuary you are strong like steroids multiplied 1000 times* You are capable of being a leader when you elevate your mind* You are effervescent like the rays of the Arizona sun you have the power of a cheetahs in the jungle when they run* Like precious rubies and gems your appraisal is high* Like an eagle spreading your wings higher and higher when you let your mind fly* Please take the words that I have spoken rewind them reverse them absorb then and rehearse them until you realize who you really are by far* Look in the mirror and tell yourself you shine bright like the beam of the northern star on a pitch black night* You are the descendants of Pharaohs the descendants of king tut so hold your head high when you strut* Don't let society dilute you refute you and make you believe you are obsolete discard you like trash in the street it is you they want to deceive* No my brotha you are royalty and you reign supreme you are the blueprint of a divine human being* So society when you tell my brothas they are worthless I beg to differ I dispute you* Nubian king stand tall because I salute you all.

    You are very welcome Nubian Queen Conscious Plat, Hotep! As you suggest, I've cut copied and pasted these words and have begun to commit them to memory, and I feel better:)

    Looking back over this time period, there seemed to have been very little participation or input from either brother or sister, wow... :wow:


    Nevetheless, these words are real and biblical I might add, which is to say, the mentioning of Kings and Queens...:huh2:


    Peace In
