    They call it the Gold Coast
    but I call it the Soul Coast
    millions of them lost
    and angry at the way
    that time wrote
    their story.

    It was divide and conquer
    then shackles and chains
    if the babies were born
    they'd be killed in days.
    In a million ways
    battles were fought
    so the men could back
    to the boats with thoughts
    of never comin back.


    As the storm raged on
    the cloulds got darker
    some jumped in the water
    so they could go under
    and live their next life
    without wonder of
    what would be next
    rape,murder or plunder.


    The moan of the sick,
    the stench of the dying
    you thought hell was bad
    than you must be lying
    to yourself about life
    and lives before yours
    that left open doors
    for you to walk through
    as well as walk back.


    It was rich in minerals
    which is why they came
    tamper with spirits
    and capturing brains
    tell them about their version of a Messiah
    and making them forget the lane
    that their ancestors traveled.

    Although time refuses
    to show many facts
    many fought like hell
    stay and leave it at that.
    Nana Kwamenah Ansa just to name one
    refused to participate
    and fell to a gun
    shot by a foreigner
    who killed him with no hassle
    later to set up a dungeon called
    Elmina Castle.


    You thought they were done
    which means you are naive
    to think that a killer
    would pull up his sleeves
    and wash his hands
    of the blood he leaves.
    Many look like him
    but are not suspects
    since they do not even know
    who the ones with power
    fuss at.

    This ain't poetry or anything of the likes
    some have to be caught differently
    to recognize the light and darkness
    which rule your mind
    up until the day you die
    or return the place your soul was born.

    The souls on the coast are still walking
    shouting out names,screamin,and talking.
    Those who listen will get the message
    some musicians do and shows in their art
    and if you think you cannot hear
    than you should start
    to open up.

    Very nice Soul flow.

    I was reading the post by River asking about the Moors. It is posted there that in 711 AD Moors conquered Europe and kept it until 1492. I have to look up the date Europe conquered Africa. The wash here in schools and books is to tell us. That criminal Columbus sailed the Ocean blue in 1492. I know he transported slaves. That part was left out.

    Africa was carved up like a dinner turkey and the influence and control still lingers strong. Could the treatment of Africa be related to the Moors conquering Europe? The United States being just an extension of that same punishment. For they are Immigrants here from Europe who wish to punish us ( Black African Americans and Africa ) until the end of time?

    Your flow made me think. The enemy plans to never let up, get up or get out.

    Time for another confrontation, across the nation on a front they created but don't understand. See God's law only rules at the end of the day. Man's law isn't clear and applied. Understand. Take no prisoners in demanding that the laws must stand. Not attached and used on me and mine. To confuse and make me obscure.

    If you make them. You must honor them too. It's said that the law is blind. But all I see it's used against me. The blind fold is so I won't be seen. To harm and imprison those of my color tree.

    If I created something similar I wouldn't just hold it to my needs. You beat me back. I feel your attack. I know I'm on one knee. What you don't know is a man not down. Can come up any time. And rock your world. A new day unfurl. Where true law really rules the land.

    I see it then. Right now these laws they help you hold. On to power and carry out your greed. On my essence and my nature. To be a strong and leading foe. When we come up. Listen up. The application comes under our rule. Then the laws and their appliance is how to bring about the cure. Demand change. It's called rights. And trash the Congress for they hold the whole design.
