    I see you there and it hits me...
    I'm free!
    Free of all things not just somethings
    never just simple dreams
    i breathe
    i breathe
    freely
    free, me?
    well yes it is my pursuit of happiness.

    I am guided by a nation of beings
    screaming
    "Let Us be Heard!"
    The poets the people the minds
    the souls
    screaming
    "TRUTH!"

    If you don't recognize the
    those of you who hide me
    raw is my expression
    loud i cry for ekwalety
    my mind soars and
    my eyes see
    free is the bird
    and the bird is she
    black and elegant
    strong and with pride
    Welcome back my feeling of being a sista
    a real sista
    a weave sista?
    No!
    I let my afro
    gro
    and gro
    and go
    cuz I'm in pursuit to find
    what will bring their minds
    back to the true stuggle :horse:

    Very Nice flow.

    Many never see the struggle.
    They walk around like they were in a bubble.

    Those we complain to don't
    want to hear the struggle of another.
    Because it involves change.


    This "will bring their minds"
    " back to the true stuggle "
    :massage: all our troubles

    Never speaking unless home comes trouble.
    Things around them become rubble.
    I must speak up to the throne issues caused
    by another when they are wrong.

    You take mine, it shows solidarity,
    more than one bringing clarity.
    They can ignore one who claims the crime,
    but they can't ignore two or more singing the same lines.

    It's not a individual thing,
    It is anothers plight I must sing.
    Then the echo will ring.
    Across this land.

    Fear of a leader in our clan taking the
    truth slapping it in the face of the man.
    Its all America understands. So deliver.
    Its been shown to us how to take a stand.
    By Martin and Malcolm

    Every child, woman and man.
    Must speak. Tell me your story,
    I can relate it so you can receive
    your glory, tell my story it shows understanding.

    I'll stand by your side.
    While we take this ride.
    To the end of time.
    Even to our end.

    The pursuit of self, the pursuit of freedom, seems like the search was fruitful for you. I hear you poet.
