    We all blessed through some deed
    from thy ancestor's and humble creed
    with a talent so strong and free
    with wisdom & knowledge we plant thy seed
    becoming a gift in mold we truely be
    all the things i see inside you and me

    Yet painful my heart continue to bleed
    from the self-destruction upon life & family
    i've been through the stage of time
    upon broken hope from our human kind
    taste the sour notes of slaving mindz

    Stood at the sandy shores of mold
    between thy history which man has told
    knowing every rainbow pose no gold
    watching thy brothers & sisters fold
    not aware of how we was sold

    Through the poverty and technology spoils
    from da planted struggle our anger boils
    pitted against thy seed to destroy self creed
    we become the cage of coils
    bound by self mind and handz
    surely this wasn't da forefathers plan

    we now search for a freedom
    a freedom of unknown
    inside a land of ameri in stone
    and bitter hearts now grow cold
    from the message our minds been sold

    Living between yesteryears and today
    in deep sorrow and dismay
    from what we as people has display
    killing raping and beatin at will
    brothers under the black & blue steel
    as sistas doing sinful drill
    for a buck and simply thrillz

    yet we are blessed beyond da deed
    and born into a maze forth thy creed
    but we have forgotten how to plant the seed
    to rise and upbring what we breed
    because we still traped by what they feed

    people wake up make a change from within to out .

    Never can be said too often, we need to be reminded of our ancestors gifts that live within us all. Keep waking us up, poet.

    Wow I love the title..... Wonder where you got that from? Hmmmm.....

    But its all good..... Here is the original piece to the title...

    Wake up

    How real is real
    When real isn't even real
    Cause if you think about it
    Even a lie
    Has some sort
    Truth to it

    So don't come at me
    With this and that
    And that bull **** that
    Has your minds contemplating
    Over ignorant thoughts

    I am just a metaphor
    Of whom they want me to be
    I walk up right
    More like G_d like

    Not thinking of ecstasy
    But more of normality
    Giving you a sense of formality

    The government
    Fills with us with visions
    Of subliminal division
    That we have us living
    A from of self-destruction

    With our ghettoized
    State of mind
    That keeps us wrong
    Creating bull**** philosophies

    It’s our hypocritical thought
    That keeps our mind
    Translucent in this
    Thought of slavery

    See to white people
    Willie Lynch wrote
    A master piece

    And we are just
    Stupid enough
    To fallow suit
    In his hierocracy

    Think about it
    Dark against light
    Light against dark

    Boy against man
    And man against boy

    Woman against man
    And man against woman
    A process of racial division

    Now think before you act
    Cause our decisions
    Create multiple contusions

    To our already
    Thoughts of idiotic
    Conclusions

    Now wake up!!!!

    America is a playground
    Where confusion is fallowed
    By subliminal erections

    Of political correctness
    When did Bush
    Ever fix anything

    No child left behind
    A mockery of our education system
    Proving that children lack more now
    Then ever before

    The so called war on terrorists
    War in Iraq
    Sending soldiers to do his bidding

    While his pockets are getting fatter
    Cause the price of gas is sky high
    Making the rich richer
    And the poor poorer

    So who is he kidding
    When he lies to America
    For is own personal wealth
    And all I can say is

    WAKE THE **** UP!!!!!!
    AND LET THE TRUTH BE TOLD

    yes it's a great title indeed and i came up with this title
    from the lyrics that was in my mind to wake my people up
    so it fit well ...i saw your piece a day after this was posted i believe

    infact i have another one call (wake up) from a few years back but in
    a different style of bliss, so speaking of Original all three is.

    Good shot, Bruh.
    I'm at the point that I believe many of us "wake up" only to find that we are still asleep.
    Strange: I am not currently aware of any "wake-up" agent administered subsequent to anesthesia, but I'm familiar with plenty of sleeping pills.

    So it seems like we have a bunch of half/quasi-conscious people perpetually trying to awaken, and still far more complacent with their slumber.
    This poem should, at bare minimum, be the cue in the dream that alerts us that "this is not real."

    At least we're lucid from this point.
    Excellent piece.
