    Purplemoon with a silvery glow
    Essence of a woman and the thangs she knows
    Purple Power with a shimmering soul.
    Fighting to belong
    Struggling to be strong
    Where have all our good black men gone?
    From day 1 we were holdin' it down
    We have evolved.
    From the heart of Africa
    To the coldness of a boat
    Trapped and enslaved
    Rape and depraved
    Constantly pushing
    Determined to survive
    Never to become exstinct
    What did they think?
    That we wouldn't survive?
    That we wouldn't stay alive?
    That we would just die?
    From battling for the rights of all women
    To gaining more knowledge and winning
    Winning to be recognized for our strenght
    From nurturing our children
    To the back bone of our men
    Holding **** down
    We, Us,
    For all my purplemoons with the silvery glow
    Holding it down .............Fo' Sho'!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I may have said, 'where have all the good black men gone?', but it wasn't literally directed towards my good brothas; just for the messed up ones.

    Thanx, for your reply!! Always open for some positive advice!!!
