    From the rejection they gave
    and how it made da people
    like assassinated justice of
    peace and da authority we
    can pose , I rise " I rise !
    in meek defeat from the
    chambers of my slumber
    the mask killing of fear
    and the deep scars in dear
    from the hate crime beating
    our minds from da hundreds
    of years ago still feeling it
    surrounded by the shade
    of bright mocking my existence
    i stand up
    i stand up
    from da endless expanse of tyme
    calling my people
    searching from da womb
    as my father forefather message
    carry into da depth of my soul
    from my ancestors toss and turn
    hope dat we learn and yearn to
    a deep burn to stand up !
    be not of ashame nor feel frustration
    free da mind from captivation
    it a new revaluation
    as people of the people for da people!
    stand up !
    stand up !
    as i feed my brain
    wisdom & knowledge
    fight back wit arms of GOD
    point the sword of faith
    and shoot hope to da mind
    i fight wit compassion
    and swing da blows of depth
    i'm not a N.......i'm not a N......
    u say i'm not black
    u say i'm not of color
    u say i am a born slave
    but let me tell u a word of wise
    ur not my massa
    ur not so white
    ur not a lilly or true light
    ur not a man
    u understand
    u are a coward / a death trap
    of destruction an image of me
    u pose no power ya mind sour
    u weak as powder or white flour
    u can control so u try to roll
    seeking ways to bring us down
    but we work too to rock u dude
    dis a war u can't win so pack up
    move on da people wise now friend
    we pose great wisdom
    we hold knowledge
    we forever remember from way back
    and now there is no slack from ya
    smack dat's whack
    I rise , I rise standing up
    as a people of da people
    with da people for my people
    we now the sonic boom
    of mad destructional power of da mind
    i have deadly weapons too
    for ever hit i destroy every nibble i bite
    every stolen soul a rebirth born
    every hate tossed it's reversed
    i'm strong ,
    i'm ready
    i've defry ya plan
    i've defeat da mentality
    i've paid da cost
    i've seen the massive move
    sure you made big moves
    and jump tymes five until
    u cross da line to meet da
    knight and commanded KANG
    to a checkmate str8 cross
    not a slave , call me BOSS.
    we not having it no mo ! :nono:
    we blowin up :bomb:

    Does a master really need props on his craft? Brotha this piece is.... most breath taking! One of the things I love most about you and others at destee.com is that thruth is the main driven goal behind the well oiled machine, not respect or honor. Poetry is in it's purest form when it is real, and we can see you. Where you come from, what you felt, etc. I see you Rich! keep the truth coming....
