    Revolt

    Today when we walk black and look back there is no path to followed.

    The line we’ve drawn in time has been replaced by a lifetime foe with a familiar face.

    We were maimed, reshaped, renamed they took our life and it became his_story and left us chained.

    Color has been changed to protect a white lie that has caused many of us to die.

    What a disgrace how he blew my face from the sphinx and rewrote our teachings in there own ink.

    My thought process has limited access to a five minute window that helps me flow and enables you to know which direction to go.

    Today there will be no nice way to put it now your *** has my foot in it.

    Now that I have your attention and you’ve lent me your ears, I’m the man sent to stop this plan.

    The one that you devised takes my eye off the prize, keeps me focus and tuned into lies.

    Now we stand divided and be fooled all together we are last in line and my history has left me so I don’t what to be.

    Here I stand a dangerous man with knowledge in one hand and in the other nothing to loose but everything to gain .

    Time after time few of us have stood tall and yelled ‘I be black man’ and was slayed by our own hand.

    History repeats itself again and again we tried to claim the thrown again and again
    We killed each other again and again.

    Now its my turn will you be my enemy or my friend , Together lets rise and bring this madness to an end.
