    Fluid thoughts run rampant
    from unspoken beliefs in my mind

    urging me to ink them into hope
    ink them into movement
    My people need MY creativity

    in this world of dreary denials
    need ME to fuel promises
    made by my grandmother and her father and his father and their children
    so that the cries of the black mens spirits are not in vain
    so that the knowledge of the Aztec Gods are ACknowledged
    so that the work of Malcolm X is understood and honored
    so that the field and factory workers can dream instead of slave
    so that our children are able to find their roots and learn how to behave,..
    ........no growth comes from unplanted seed,......

    I need to embrace this gallant pen
    Black ink bleeds
    hoping to fall on colorless minds
    My ink slowly yearns to whisper
    with the intensity of a scream

    listing reason after reason
    of why my pen needs to flow,..
    Because schoolbooks play hide and seek with truths
    picking and choosing the lessons
    adjusting the light
    to shine brighter in dull corners
    blind blue eyes preach equality
    and untruths nourish our strength

    painting us in dominant hues of brown and black
    but unlike blots of ink
    forgotten about in the pages of time
    we will not fade away
    or diminish in fortitude
    we will not wash out
    by chemicals of change
    time will only color us
    undeniable
    indestructable
    permanent black people.....

    ...I was always told that I was the descendent of "STRONG" ancestors...
    because the weaker ones of our people...didn't make it, through the
    horrors that were subjected when we were taken...

    So..."Strength" is in our blood, but many of us...just don't know it...

    The TRUTH shall set us FREE...

    So you can speak this piece...even MORE LOUDLY...
    Allow me to reiterate a few of the profound stanzas you've placed before me...​


    ...wow


    Amen and Amen...

    Teach on Brother...Teach on... :teach:

    Always Love,
    Your Sage
