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!
