We Took our Eyes off the Prize

We took our eyes off the prize
As we started to flirt
With blue eyes and ivory thighs
Adorned in micro mini skirts

We took our eyes off the prize
As we embraced the comfort of drugs
Sacrificing our wealth to patronize
And enrich white-collar thugs

We took our eyes off the prize
To follow the illusion of gain
Failing to realize
We followed a path insane

We took our eyes off the prize
And in doing so lost our way
While some tried to hide from our eyes
They wanted to return to the Jim Crow day

We took our eyes off the prize
And to our chagrin and sorrow
We sadly realize
We’ve compromised our children's tomorrow

We took our eyes off the prize
Now I wonder how dat happen
Could it have been
Dem lips what started flappen:?:

The one's that sink ships
The one's what dug a pit
With Hell fires blazin
our eyes went ta gazin

Seems to me...
Marvelin in the whiteness
Minds blinded by it's brightness
A parade of E.VI.L.
That European Viral Infection......LIES

Presenting itself as one from Glory
The True prize
As the one that is (W)Holy Lie'er
than Thou…… went and said

*** ole black thang***
It is "I" alone
in his nasally, wimpish, ****** *** tone

for which your gaze must be shown
upon
Stop looking at you
And look, and admire, desire
ME
For I'm the Prize
Can't you See

And like dear what Caught a
Panic Attack
Frozen in the iceeee
Cold bloodedness
A State of Despair
Who is it that will Dare
Spark a Revolution

Recognizing WE are the solution
Earning back our Prize
Eyes turning BACK
To US
Black, Afreekan True Divine Selves
The Prize our Eyes
Seek
Turning away from the Big White Lie

A Story Ending with my piece of the
Pie in da sky LIE


Time to take a breather
From the shock and Surprise
Well Guess What

Broken mental chains
Breaking up the game
The ghost disappeared
I was Back to BLACK
Finally set Free
Back to the Power in the
Unity of WE

Away from the Brightness
Remembering and Telling
What happened in the Whiteness
To assure our Youth have sufficient information
For we will have laid them a Solid Foundation

Lost in the BLACK BEAUTY….THE BEAUTY OF BLACK

M.E.
