    (Intro)
    Tonight I scream in silence
    With only my computer to capture the sound
    Every where I turn,
    Every where I look
    My peoples seek
    Peace & reach
    For the freedom
    Of a Divine Nature

    Scattered are the nations
    To the four corners of the world
    Driven from the mainland
    Into the wilderness
    Of Babylon
    Where domestication
    And hunting are the mandate of the system and the law o the land
    In response to the madness
    some Womben tune out
    some of the Men turn violent
    And another day goes by


    (Body)

    Can’t you hear me scream?
    My soul howling as it tears
    Won’t you hear my scream?
    From living this nightmare

    Original man parading
    Barbie on his arm
    Original man charading
    No one seem alarmed

    Original man in hiding
    Spurning his very own
    Original man is lovin
    Enchanted by a clone

    Original man is hating
    That from which he came
    Sowing his deliverance
    To the cursed and the lame

    Original man lay sleeping
    As a giant in the night
    Death come’ a creepin’
    Disguised in the light

    Traded in his courage
    For status & a name
    Money method madness
    Is the culture now he claims

    Standing Ill dignified
    On the stage of life
    Original man finds
    no land he can protect
    So instead he chooses
    To neglect
    a duty that was his
    but now, is big
    time politics
    and remains King
    only in his mind
    hoping in faith
    that in time

    the mentally malnutritioned
    will improve their
    soul’s condition
    and fufill a prophetic
    vision where they
    act on their own volition.

    The anti-christs
    Will not stop
    To interfere with what we do,
    Caretakers of the earth
    Going forth 2 x 2

    Its in your nature
    To want to reproduce
    But he will challenge
    Divine will so Gods
    Power to reduce

    But lynch and the mob
    Hunt the origins of God
    Distract him from protecting his seed,
    Got his queen down
    On her knees

    And another day goes by…


    Where promises,
    sweet promises, distract
    Him from his place
    To turn about his mind
    And steal his sacred space

    Where bravado and ego
    Take the reward
    And love and devotion
    Fall to the sword

    Can’t you hear me scream?

    Is this an illusion
    Everything I see
    Black man lovin’ Jenny’s
    Mutations of me

    Always ready at her side
    Black man step n fetch it
    While clowning for his pride

    If we were the chosen people
    Just how can this exist
    The real competing
    With a fantasy
    I cry into my fists

    Why can’t people see
    What they are all about
    The story hasn’t changed
    There should be no doubt

    More than an abomination
    To have to stand by
    While Massa had his way
    And we were praying to the sky

    More than injustice
    To watch anguished to the core
    The iron hot and heavy
    Sizzling the brand we wore

    Tearing out our hair
    When our babies cried
    Torn from a mothers breast
    To feed the angry sty’s

    More than enough
    To cause you to recall
    The days when they locked
    You up, put you in the stalls

    I'm screaming at you now
    To cause you to remember
    What brought about our fall
    And the snows in late December

    Is there a place
    Deep down inside your heart
    Could you hear my voice
    If we were torn apart?

    I know where you’ve been
    Cause I’ve been there too
    To hell and Armageddon
    Rising with the truth

    Someone wake me from this nightmare
    Cause I can’t stand no more
    The hopeless admiration
    For the devil as he scores

    You can say I’m full of hate
    But who in hell are you?
    There’s only one love
    In the universe
    That I know is true

    It is the Him and Her
    love produced progeny
    The Original Divine night
    Called BLACK FAMILY

    thank you

    Sister Watz, brother Rich and brother Khasm.
    I actually found this one the other day, and thought I'd give it some room, since it had not been aired. It's my feeling towards those Tired Black men who would rather tell me that they can have a harmonious relationships with someone other than a Sister.

    We are of course, all entitled to live our lives as we see fit, and love knows no boundaries, but again, there is one love that withstood the ultimate tribulation and that as far as I can see is the love of the Black man and his family.

    Thank you for taking the time to read it, I know sometimes my flow is hella long!
