    i wish to be a BLACK MAN
    but im only 14
    i must stray from these childish ways so the fist i raise
    will be seen

    i want to be a BLACK MAN
    yes,........more than a wish.....to me a want
    to feel the pride that resides in a man that provides for a family
    in this bath of love i dunk

    i need to be a BLACK MAN
    yes, its more than a want.......... a need
    from above my destiny
    not a gangsta or thug just a man whose hands expand to hug and show his family love

    i will be a BLACK MAN
    still a soul child but more than a poetic prophet
    because i am more than a conquerer
    not will eva stop it



    for now im only 14

    if, indeed
    it is a BLACK MAN
    you want...you dream...you need to be
    then, be what you will
    for time will fill the cavity
    the boy heart demands
    ...expand it
    to the truth of its being

    but, for now
    be the young man you are
    maintain your course
    stay the negativity from within you
    that you might be an example
    for those around you

    share your light
    with your peers
    who fear
    the daylight of tomorrow
    that they might know
    being a BLACK MAN
    is a noble thing
    not obscene
    to be cast aside for the glitter of the streets
    ...the bling bling they be flossing
    trying to get meat.

    shine your light on TRUTH.

    let it work for you.

    your manhood is upon you
    for now,
    be who you are.:)

    LET THE RIVER FLOW

    I really like this. It speaks to me.
    Our young people are like gardens with rich soil.
    It is up to us to tend the soil... that the harvest is bountiful.

    Diggin' it like a grave, poet

    firtsly welcome to detees.
    Secondly your piece is very well written.
    It's so good that you have pride in yourself and pride in who you want to be. Sounds to me like you're heading in the right direction.
