    Strong black man like tony the tiger
    Fight for truths and common survival
    I see past the hatred tell grown asz men
    Put down the vengence and stop the violence
    Im one man against three hundred others
    They can shoot me beat me down
    Yet this young man wont studder
    I deserve more than your weak game play
    More than the words you splurge
    No need for a pot to piss in?
    The ghetto chronics the way I live
    I propped my windows up with sticks and coke cans
    Ran out of them toothpicks-Yet
    How can one brother keep hope alive?
    Tell the streets about the heat?
    Or should a brother just soul survive?
    So why Lie?-Tell me that its evil over there
    I thank God for all the heroes over there
    Im glad someone believed in me-Died in Vietnam for me
    Stood up for me like Martin did
    He still is the king to me
    The day the dream will never end
    Like broken bones I can only mend
    The tides that bind-Cause I was seperated at birth
    Grew up multiculural to some on here thats worse
    Yet who can cut the belly?
    When yall cant even tame the best
    I just wipe my shoes-Lay back down
    Cause im so weak in the knees
    I scrubbed floors to help my mother Deloris
    If wasnt for the Lord inside
    I probably would be cold inside
    Im so bold inside-I just might fold and I
    Am more than just a man-Im a tony the tiger
    Thats what type of man that I man
    I conquer anything that I set my mind too
    Im more than a poet
    Im full of metaphores and beautiful music
    No other race can possibly do this
    From the heavens to the earth
    Kind of felt like a curse at birth
    Yet tell you the truth
    I drowned so many times
    From tears steadily tumbling down
    I went from crawling to walking
    From man to a King
    Its not the ice that seperates us
    Its the envy that we see so
    The reality that has set in
    Shows others how I have grown
    Into a strong black man
    A strong black man
    A strong black man
    That has seen his past
    To cherish his future
    A strong black man
    Like Tony The Tiger
    I have tamed the beast within
    To see the peace within

    Sincerly,
    Tantrum "Last Of My Kind"

    THIS IS A STORY ANY REAL MAN CAN RELATE TO

    I have tamed the beast within
    To see the peace within

    THAT LAST PART IS THE HARDEST THING TO DO

    GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO
    PEACE

    FELT THE STRENGTH IN YOUR WORK

    anger from injustice(s)

    is a contributing factor in creating the black man's beast within.

    I feel you soul-deep on the last 2 lines


    "I have tamed the beast within
    To see the peace within"
