    Sleeping Giants

    People of the African Diaspora
    Please heed these few verses
    Get up off your death-bed
    This whole world’s been misled
    See, Ham was not subject to curses

    Melanated people of the world
    A trick’s been played on your minds
    A scheme so divisive
    So incredibibly derisive
    As to make your own soul undermine

    Dark skinned people of the planet
    A devilish game has been played
    You’re not the minority
    In fact the majority
    Straight victims of a cruel charade

    Good people of the African Disapora
    Understand each word’s been said
    You’re not the worst people
    You are the first people
    Wake up, you’ve been misled

    Wake up you sleeping Giants
    Black, tan, red, yellow and brown
    You can rise from your slumber
    Put evil asunder
    And turn this whole world around

    as I read this...
    I kept hearing in my head
    "Awake Oh Zion"
    and
    "Arise and Walk"...
    This piece was so emotive
    and true...

    Yes...we are Giants but we
    must come to believe that
    we are inside...otherwise
    we will never achieve the
    greatness we were created for.

    Love your work...7th Poet (Wonderful name :wink: )
