    Dry your eyes boys and girls
    Ever man and woman of the world
    I am here and I have heard
    Every prayer on the first and third
    When the welfare checks neva lasted and flew like birds
    The violence and killings when the blacks were brought here in herds
    Under shackles and chainz from their native soil
    Into a world of hate and water that boils
    I have seen and I have heard

    I have heard the prayers of many
    I have shielded and granted plenty
    When the income was few of hardly any
    My children, then why do you STILL betray me?

    I remember a prayer that was sent a few years ago
    It was of a black child turned into a ho'
    Her self esteem was really low
    And the money from sellin' her body still left her po'
    She was losing all hope of eva making it out the ghetto
    Then I told her to neel and pray even mo'
    I let her know
    That even with the weakiest, prayer has made them grow
    I shielded her eye for eye and toe for toe
    I neva left her side until she won the lotto

    I remember a white woman who by her husband was beat
    He thought cause he sheltered her and gave plenty to eat
    That he could control where she went and what she sees
    In the beginning she was the rock of the family
    But quickly afterwards, he had her forgettin' she was even a lady
    Bloody
    and scratchy
    She knealed before me
    Asked for forgiveness and shielding of me
    I granted this of her and her family
    Although later it would be missing a daddy
    I gave her the knowledge to know that this man could neva make her happy
    She was freed forever mentally
    I made her REMEMBER she was a lady

    I was there during Civil War
    When blacks couldn't fight in the field far
    Only protected with sticks and a bar
    Blood spurring yet they still fought for
    the right of freedom for every black star
    I was there
    I was neva far

    I was there when Martin was standing
    Stern face and legs bending
    When the blacks were separated from the whites spontaneously
    Spit on and kicked consecutively
    When Malcolm was spyed by FBI secretely
    And when he dies hatefully
    I unlike you also remember the unity of the black family
    As they marched hand in hand none violently
    When the watchdogs bit into their body's potently
    And potentially
    Damaging them for lifey
    I was there though my words are spoken through " Foxylady"

    When the Black Panthers
    Were screamin' black power
    Black leather coats and kongo hats towing lots of gun powder
    Balled up fist representing unity for the blacks farther
    Held high so Afro. Americans couldn't fall lower
    Rich and poorer
    Takin' over
    Whole streets together
    All for the black power
    I was there to guide this situation over
    I was there to make the situation better

    I was there six months ago
    When that nineteen year old boy was searching for a hero
    While he was in jail and called a negro
    Because he did it to a white girl on the low
    Daddy found out and reported it......next thing you know
    Is the girl on the Oprah Winfrey show
    I was there......and I know that you know I know

    I was there with that R. Kelly drama
    When they reported Jesse Jackson had a baby mama
    When Kobe did it to that white woman
    Even though he knew they had nothing in common
    I was there when Emmett Till was killed for lookin' at a white woman
    And I was there when ghetto and non- ghetto blacks had a lot in common
    I was there!

    I help everybody
    Sinner or user of blasphemy
    For gentlemen and lady
    Child and adult family
    I am here to help you forever........you are saved by me
    Know that if I helped Moses cross the Red Sea
    that I made the blind see
    The paralyzed walk instantly
    Then also know, that I am here for all eternity
    This is my testimony
    Sincerely
    and truly
    The holyfather of all glory

    The Lord is always with us even when times are hard. Times would be even harder without his watchful eyes. We can never thank him enough, this was wonderfully posed, Foxi.
