    THANKZ - GIVING .......are we thankful :nono:

    We are thankful
    for the food before us
    for life given unto us
    and living warm

    but are we
    truely thankful
    really thankful

    In a continue struggle
    where many ancestor's
    cross lines so we may
    stand in to vote ............
    make a choice
    have a voice

    are we thankful !

    for at will kill rob & steal
    take , rape & hate
    our own
    knockin self from home
    De-thron & pro_claim
    name of shame from
    slavery where whips
    lash our forefather back
    like a creed of deed done
    da cry of mother's
    unborn unto poverity
    mixed , stolen massa

    are we thankful .......... :nono:

    for the dope to feed our vains
    and lost hope to mental brains
    are we the people of thankz
    for the betrayal of self for the
    green dead president left
    sour fracture dreams
    lonely nights of screams
    without giving
    feelin rapid fire in the hood
    blood run where man stood
    mother's , father's cry
    from da hand of a black man
    in the struggling street
    seem as we defeat self

    are we truely thankful :nono:

    inside the home
    where love :love: should roam
    instead :argue: broken hope
    single parent was not promised
    and like the yesteryears stolen
    from home da mother land sold
    for tea kittles , candle sticks
    silver & gold worthy bodies
    to da nothern A~meri~kan land
    to be rule by klans men

    i wanna know are we really thankful :nono:

    In today liberty do it ring
    we shall over come do we sing
    killing hope all we bring
    children cry no college dreams
    for lack of funds
    communities we bomb
    destructional blast of self skin
    black on black blazin themes
    continue jailing
    bruthas & sistah's
    are we thankful for all we precieved
    somebody tell me please please please !!!
    da common ground laid
    years of tears made
    sweatin , hand & feet raw
    from sun up to sun down
    do we smile or do we frown !
    is the mind still sleep
    from the truth that keep us weak

    Are we thankful :nono:

    When we see the young empowered
    body cross knowledge against da old
    and say u people .....
    do they not know it was
    we people our Ancestor's
    who died , slaved , drop bloody tears
    so they can stand in the honor place
    they hold without a beaten , stoned
    and rip from home .....paved the way
    to bridge the gaps between da color
    now twist promise of furture
    to a total nightmare

    are we thank~ful
    for the white house
    and not the black house
    still living in poverity & struggle
    creating stress but we born
    to fight the test of time
    as we rise , rise and shine
    wit wisdom of power

    but are we thankful for this
    harvest birth da Pilgrims worth
    oct .....1621 the first
    that spill ova like a cruse

    sorry i'm just not a TURKEY
    but a Black MAN
    when i speak , i speak of hope
    not this gobble gobble joke .... :nono:

    tell me what are we truely thankful for ???
    THANKZGIVING .....da untold reality.

    yes written cross da dinner table
    for the minds to be free before we
    smile do drop a tear for the hunger
    and the helpless the needed
    and bless thou self for the food of
    knowledge which givin da wisdom
    this table is not bare of food but full
    with reality and unspoken truth

    and it won't be televised !!!

    I planned on fasting this ThanKKKsgiven, and after reading this peace piece, my soul's hunger has been fed.

    Do your thing, brother, do your thing.
