    Boy) I can do anything as long as I focus my mind

    Girl) and I can be what I want as long as I put in the time

    I can be an inventor like Garrett Morgan, the black man who invented the Traffic Light.

    Well I can be strong like Harriet Tubman, who devoted her life to free the slaves at night

    I can study My-Story like the late great Alex Haley, then teach it to my people

    I can be like Rosa Parks who fought for her rights to show that everybody is equal

    I can study the Universe and break down star constellations

    See, we can do anything as long as we have the patience.

    I don’t only have to focus on sports, like Imhotep I can be a Heart Surgeon.

    See all we have to do is choose today to start learning.

    We are the future
    And the leaders of tomorrow
    We can obtain what we will
    As long as the righteous road is followed


    I don’t have to dress like girls in videos I can keep my clothes on.

    I want to help to free my people so tell them to hold on.

    I want my mind to shine bright so I’ll learn something new everyday.

    I won’t need drugs or alcohol to get me through so I’ll stay clean in every way.

    A friend is not someone who pushes me to do what I don’t want too.

    Knowledge is the only way to deal with problems as they confront you.

    I can study how the Sun gives light to the Moon and Stars

    While you do that I could learn about Mercury, Venus, Neptune and Mars.

    I promise to study Math, focus on Science mixed with Chemistry.

    I promise to do my best and let nobody limit me.

    Yes we can do it because God doesn’t give anything we can’t handle.

    So we’ll study the ways of truth and Jesus was his example.

    I can take my time and read the Bible and don’t stop ti’ll I’m done.

    And I can read the Qu’ran and we will still be family cause ain’t no stoppin’ us……One!

    We are the future
    And the leaders of tomorrow
    We can obtain what we will
    As long as the righteous road is followed


    Our ancestors built the pyramids that sit under the Sun in Egypt.
    They even left their face on Mars so everyone can see it.

    In Afrika near the Nile valley is the birthplace of civilization.
    It’s only the truth that the blacks were the first humans in creation.

    Columbus showed up in 1492 and he saw the natural wealth of our ancestors whom he called God’s and decided to steal it.
    So I guess we’ll have to do some research on our own because our school books don’t reveal it.

    Every Nation came to learn from our people in Egypt, gain knowledge
    And study our books
    But they got greedy and wanted it all so Alexander the Great
    Was sent back with crooks

    We want to learn about the struggles of our people who came before us.
    We want to learn of the Egyptian God’s Osiris, Isis and Horus.

    We vow to focus on knowledge everyday and not on fast cars and ice.
    We want to learn about the prophecies of the prophets and what they told of Christ.

    We once heard a preacher say “seek the truth and you shall find it”

    So I guess we have to read more books
    Because we also heard that’s where they hide it.

    But we need our parents to help us and guide us the right way.
    Teach us the truth so we can grow and respect our elders and ancestors so the future brings us brighter days

    We are the future
    And the leaders of tomorrow
    We can obtain what we will
    As long as the righteous road is followed

    Let the choir say Amen...

    This reminds me a little of a piece I did titled "Imagine Nation".

    This is a vow that we all must take, cuz if we don't overstand that we are more than hustlers we'll be overtaken again, & that can't happen.

    Nice one, as always.

    Do your thing.

    Peace.

    peace to u all,

    we have to teach our seeds, for we don't want them to make the same mistakes we did & how else can we justify our existance if we continue to limit their minds..................

    peace
