    RE-MEMBER



    Once​
    Eye was told​
    by the Great Ones of Old​
    We are the creators of all that is seen​
    The knowers of dark​
    The knowers of light​
    As genius pulsed through our genes​
    Our Culture​
    is what carried us through​
    whole, holistic, balanced and true​
    A people so prized​
    And whom others despised​
    began to believe in their lies​
    And then we fell​
    from Grace​
    For centuries now​
    we have been used and abused​
    The sacrificial blood of this realm​
    slaughtered, betrayed, oppressed and enslaved​
    And continues as if theres no end​
    Once​
    Eye was told​
    Our forgetfullnes has grown​
    to proportions that leave us near dead​
    Laden heavy with pain and invisible chains​
    Walking wounded with minds full of dread​
    Once we did quite naturally​
    Remember our dead as ceremony​
    Now every other nation has stolen from you​
    Your ancestral memory which proved to be true​
    Take a moment to​
    Re-member​
    All those who have died under tyranny or oppression​
    Remember the innocent across the globe​
    Remember that child who lived down the road​
    Re-member them all​
    and then you will see​
    It is
    Enough!
    Re-member​
    as you weep, and seek to find that place of peace​
    Remember your loved ones​
    The great and the brave​
    The old and the young​
    And the bodies unlaid​
    Our remembrance was always a sacred seal​
    Our re-membering is how we begin to heal​
    Once​
    Eye was told​
    by the Great Ones of Old​
    That we will​
    Rise​
    Transformed​
    Afrikans!​
    Htp :heart:

    Beutifully scribed Work of Know Ledge!

    The members of the heavy gene club
    Have got to unite in the tears
    Of the universal backwards ness
    Felt by us because
    Our Mommas eyes are always on the prize!
    It's ours for the taken we just have to understand whom
    Is whom!

    This timeless and coherent peace serves as a succinct reminder of our greatness.

    Thanks for the memories.
