    I wrote this a while back, after reading The Isis Papers (isn't it obvious?)...this is one of my infantile poems so don't be too critical with feedback :)

    It's why brother Malcolm died

    An inevitable condition,
    It's why so many of us tried
    It grows here in America more so than anywhere else
    Especially amoung us
    The search for knowledge of self

    But how could you blame us?

    We were brought to this nation
    For fear of genetic annihilation
    And feelings of isolation
    In the Aryan nation
    Subconciously, they nail me to a cross
    Because my superiority makes them
    Flip the script
    They grip
    Big brown cigars between their lips
    And suck away at my maleness
    An ailment
    Too complex to be seen with the naked eye
    But I spy you checkin' out the man on my arm
    By his Blackness you are charmed
    Fantasies of conceiving brown babies
    Lurk in the abyss of your mind
    I find it hard to believe
    This reality you won't receive
    But I pulled your card
    Time to play a new hand
    Taken to a new land
    Where I am the majority
    Anywhere else in this land
    Your absence of color makes you look odd
    Rearranage your thoughts
    Before you get caught
    In a web too tangle to unravel
    Travel beyond Whitetown, USA
    It's a new day
    I see right through your scheme
    Can't defeat my knowledge with your who regime
    Fraudulent claims to be divine
    Look at my roots and you will find
    A Black Queen
    Too beautiful not to be seen
    That's why I don't have to scream to be heard
    Command attention with my presence
    My reverence
    Demands no less

    Mama knows best is what they used to say
    But I say my mother is Africa
    And so is yours
    That's why I know who I am
    The struggle has come to an end

    Until the next child is born into this Earth
    So I plant the seed of knowledge
    For what it's worth
    So that Generation Next
    Won't be branded with an X

    Quote-A Black Queen
    Too beautiful not to be seen
    That's why I don't have to scream to be heard
    Command attention with my presence
    My reverence
