    i was a little worried about posting this please tell me what u think.


    black men and women,
    rich soil,deep pride,
    for to long we have let this slide,
    ONE love......
    ONE thought........
    ONE heart......

    we were......are.....and always will be.....
    smooth skin of deep black, brown and caramel ebony
    sharp mindz tellin me to, what?
    fight.....
    fight.....
    fight.....
    for rights treasured,
    and dignity measured,
    shown in verbs and nouns,

    from sambo clowns and....
    from slave ships and minimum wage jobs and tips
    to the tru successes that we are

    so.....
    rise up brutahs and sistahs,rise up
    to and past the stars......

    This is the one that yuo shared with me over AOL, I told you I liked it and I thought it was a go, but you are right in seeing what others think. If no one replies, don't let that stop you, sometimes you have to take that leap of faith, girl....
