    I think some of ya'lls got me misunderstood
    talking 'bout depression, oppression, and suppression
    of things from the hood
    recounts of history trying to uncover mysteries
    and kicking our CONtry in the butt
    maybe I'm not patriotic enough
    maybe I am the proverbial
    "angry Blak man" (naw, too stressul)
    yet understand I know the game
    I understand when where how and why to
    say what you want to say in whatever tone
    you may please
    I understand paying bills and taking care of kids
    and roofs over the heads and clothes on the
    back I understand the status quo
    and being tactful but
    I am into speaking my mind to whomever
    needs to hear it
    as long as it is the truth it will be heard
    no boss no banker no system will stunt that
    I understand the dangers in that but if you
    can't speak your mind are you free?
    I understand getting paid and enjoying
    the fruits of your labor but is it worth being paid
    for the sake of going to sleep looking for a tail that
    has retreated between my legs?
    It won't happen..."The man" be he
    blak or white or any other hue
    will not be spared the silver tipped
    tongue if correction is in order
    what is the price of freedom?

    FELT THIS POET!

    THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE FREE BECAUSE
    THEY HAVE MOST OF EVERYTHING THEY WANT. THEY FORGET ABOUT WHAT IS NEEDED. THE TRUTH.
    I'M GLAD BRUTHA'S LIKE YOU ARE OUT HERE NOT HOLDING BACK THE TRUTH.
    KEEP THE FAITH!
