    Like minds choose to differ

    Blind minds are prejudicial

    My mind knows the truth

    Make up your own

    In our time

    Was revolution ~

    Panthers were executed

    Strange fruit was constituted

    It's high time you know

    Black pride was controversial

    We were your dress rehearsal

    Protesting made things worse

    Beat black and blue

    Our lives were segregated

    Our ways were all negated

    Your future hesitated

    Now whose mind

    Is on hold?

    wake up time
    one can not go on
    blind..stuff right before the eyes
    got to realize open the mind
    remove the blinds
    as time move forward
    lets not fall behind
    open that mind
    loving this Poet
    so many has made the way for US
    can't waste it
    Peace
