    Tyme and tyme we fight to win
    we fall down in the act of sin
    then we get right back up again
    in this battle call struggling trendz

    Against da odds and our fears
    beyond da past and ancestors tears
    we rise from out one man's dreams
    pushing for a change wit power & steam
    here we are a people a team

    They can't hold us down
    yet you see the horror & frownz
    for our scars of a worrior
    has been my lasher of thou brothers
    as we change faces from undercover

    We set to ride'em out
    in ever way mentally thought
    from every angal tought
    this be da war our people fought
    to a change we sure sought

    We pose action wit great pride
    making waves stride by stride
    we no longer running to hide
    we on defense won't let it ride
    yes subside da myth cause they lied

    We fall down now we rize
    to da top of lookout mountain
    from every hamlet to set da stage
    our minds and soul is never cage
    in this society crazy life rage

    Black man stand in ya honor
    ware ya nuts and pop ya collar
    let da world know we won't holla
    just fight forward in our unity power

    Do what gotta be done
    for our women daughters and sons
    not a one will be called an uncle tom
    white su-preeeema-cy here we come
    Black men we're number one

    Let us go forth and lead
    bring new life from our seed
    wisdom & knowledge continue to feed
    we are a strong creed
    and won't fall down again to da greed

    WE HAD 2 FALL IN ORDER 2 STAND AS MAN!

    Now i got this great instill
    to do the work of his will
    and strike back wit words of fire
    it's becoming my loyality & desire

    We fall down been held down to long
    to stand back up again deep & strong
    we on a rise with wisdom to set da tone
    for our future love one's and friendz
    we are da worriors the great blackmen.

    Just can't keep a good people down. The forces that be have trying for years, but we keep moving forward in spite of the tears. Always focused, though there's the weight of the crown. And from time to time during the climb, we may fall down.
    But guess what? ....WE GET UP!
    Great write!
    I love the love so Love on Poet, Love on!
