    He'll be as strong as the epitome of a black man's soul

    someday…some may say

    Displaying the essence of the reasons I be

    me…today, tomorrow, and forever

    Wandering aimlessly with full purpose along the paths
    of my mental desires

    Feeding my need to entice who I be; he who reasons for
    a rhyme to share my gain for aspirations of

    me…here and now

    Rights of ritual passages dance within the confines of my
    bloodline - thick with the richness of the black pride in

    me…

    Confirming while defining the man I strive to be

    I am he, I am him, it is I

    me…

    Reborn unto my mind's mind and nourished within the flames
    of a subtle gentleman's nature

    The reasons for the make up of me transcends years of
    mental preparation

    I be a concrete stimulation intertwined with

    satisfaction

    and

    reactionary

    interactions…

    produced for all the world to see

    My black people I'm just being

    me…

    It is through a black man's poetry the I gain better understanding of his emotions and who he truely is. His words are like a syringe injecting his sincerity into my mental.

    I enjoyed the read. Thanks
