    Enslaved by chains of prejudice
    Bound by names of shame & ignorance
    Looked down upon by many
    However, I do not let go of the pride still within me
    Never forgetting the struggle, its forever remembered
    To many deaths of my forefathers & ancestors
    The trials & tribulations of this nation's past still lasts
    We hav come so far, yet we have not made it to the top
    We haven't yet givin this last fight to end the struggle all we've got
    We're too overcome with today's one-sided ways
    Engulfed by material things that yet to mean anything
    We have gone back to being bind by sterotypes & lies
    Now we sit back in our own demise as "White America" begins to criticzie
    WHY?
    I say why?
    WHy must we let ourselves forget of where we 1st came?
    Why do we act ashamed of how our forefathers whom paved a way for us to claim
    FREEDOM
    Many of us have lost our faith
    ANd demolished our pride
    Instead we hide trying to find security from humility amungst the shadows
    We forget about battles. the scars left for many years, the unwiped tears...
    But I, I have not forgotten where I once came
    I will forever claim the name of BLACK PRIDE
    If your ready for a revolution then stop, no longer hide
    Come to the promise land on calvary's peek
    Do not be afraid to speak
    SHOUT from the moutain tops
    without worries or cares that we as people shall no longer despair
    Let us walk with heads held high & fist in air!

    Sorry, Lyricalpassion, this is a wonderful strong piece that speaks of the pride in not forgetting the past and continuing on, and I am truly feeling it. I was too tired last night to respond to everything I wanted to, so I'm back on this morning, trying to give props.
    The spokesman is correct, sometimes you've got to tell the truth. But, there is more. This forum can be very supportive and loving. There are times of high activity, and loads of responses, and other times when it is really quiet, a lull. This is definitely one of those lull periods. Sometimes people have things going on in their own lives that effect their participation here. But do hang around, and write, and you will see the love that is here. Right everyone????

    Sometimes there are lulls on Fridays and Saturdays, Lyrical. Don't sweat it or take it personally. A lotta times, you post somethin and it takes a few days to start getting replies. People go in and out of busy times.

    I can't believe you're 14. This piece reflects a lot of awareness, and I really dig your passion. Keep on flowin - I wanna see more.
