    In a nightmarish
    dream of discovery
    confronted by my tortured self
    shackled to phantom chains of slavery

    I am...
    just a shell of what
    Mother Africa birthed

    Processed
    reconstituted
    sanctioned Black

    Back and forth
    from do rag slick
    to watered down bloodline

    Native tongue unsung
    meandering
    aimlessly
    ever so
    easily

    Bankrupt
    $$RICH$$
    self-deprecating
    knowledge of self

    Used
    and abused
    in a hostile land

    Contrary to what one
    vivid dreamer foretold
    from that mountaintop
    envisioning a dignified people
