    My family and friends think Im losing my mind within

    Im just trying to figure out where it all fits in

    The greed, the murder, the deception, the lying

    History distorted, lost, not be found again

    Im putting it together, but its still so puzzling

    Hit the jackpot, but the dice keep rolling

    Stacked up dough, yet I still stay hustling

    Read the book once, yet I need to read it again

    Just to make sure that I didnt miscomprehend

    Wanna share it with the world, but they all lookin

    at me like im crazy, thinking I had to be smoking

    But its really truth that Ive been inhaling

    They tell me let it go and just to trust in Him

    How long must I do that, with still no progression

    Something inside made me go to start looking

    or I never would have learned of the Divine Femine

    Why you aint heard either? cuz they like to be sexing men

    If they all based on Greece, then what you think this is?

    In this midst of it all, we've seem to forsaken

    Who we truely are, when we gon start remembering

    Or has the pain of all the middle passages

    severed us from the land they've wreaked havoc in?

    Birthed from us, then they come back again

    Learned under us, then they come back again

    Stole culture from us, then they come back again

    invaded us, then they come back again

    enslaved us, then they come back again

    Take all the resources, yet they still come back again

    Now they decide to organize an African Union

    To help insert and control their puppet governments

    Then they fund both sides of instigated conflicts

    To boost, amplify, and raise their profits

    In order to do it, they must keep us ingnorant

    Find out your history, immerse yourself in it

    Think outside your religion, dont arm yourself with it

    Its just another thing that they use to puppet you with

    Become familiar with and know your true Spirit

    and then this reign of terror, we'll soon be ending it

    Hi Verbatim
    this is indeed a very thought provoking flow.
    We now know the game plan. So we can become
    the power players.
    We can write our own books.
    And seriously learn our own history.
    The true History and Herstory of US. Much Love
    Keep bringing it.
    And lol..Give your flow a title. Our poems are like a child
    it’s an honor to name them, even if we change it. :grouphug:
    Much love
    Digging your drop.
    Let it Flow!


    Peace~N~Love

    To be aware of our history, of the wealth of our ancestors, and thus ourselves, is such a gift. You have quite a way with words poet, loved how you weave your lines together in expression.
