    What A Black Man Means To Me

    A Blackman is the definition of a King;
    many may say what is a King?
    Let me break it down and keep it real.
    A man who walks tall, with dignity, a leader
    within self, validation which is not needed
    only by God; a man who stands up to his
    responsibility without being told, educating
    the mind, and teaching the young; to feel
    the compasion of his woman, and not be
    intimadated by his own ego to keep the
    flow of love. To recognize that pride
    breaks all the rules of love, ego that sits
    in and destroy the meaning and
    divide what could have been.
    To be a man is to love, an always remeber
    be careful the voices in your head.
    .


    A man who is not impress by materialist
    images; the mind that stimulates his
    thoughts the bond between his soul
    mate; and the growth which they share
    together as one. The protector of his
    woman and family, the soldier of his
    foundation. The lion that protects his home.
    A man who can take a woman around
    the world without leaving earth, his
    wisdom to conform the beauty that
    sings within her spirit, the
    proposition of being a man
    a virtue which is given at birth,
    the genes of a sister warrior,
    Shall only breed strong men.
    God is one.


    A man who takes charge, never letting
    woman stripe him of his identity, to
    speak and not to speak, not
    intimidated by provocations.
    The spiritual mind of a man; is the
    beholder of his hope chest.
    The wisdom to know Gods children;
    and to detect the images of the devil in mask.
    Knowledge to know who is woman,
    the knowledge to apply who is holy.

    I salute the mother, who has transformed a king,
    The womb may create creation, if the blood is tainted
    Results will only mean genocide within her genes.

    A man who is not easily
    intimated by the world;
    and knows his destiny.
    A man who takes cares of responsibility;
    and don’t mind getting his hands dirty.
    A man who has wisdom and spiritual
    knowledge of self, the leader and not
    the follower of this land. A man who
    can fit in any crowd, and make sure
    is business is taken cared at home.

    A man who is strong and the warrior
    of his turf, and break the black code.
    Nevertheless he is not impress by
    ignorance are whores who temps
    him with her lustful demands,
    a man who recognize the beauty
    of a queen, a man who has his own
    And take care of his family,
    and feed the minds of his brothers ;
    and sisters with positive thoughts,
    to be a man is not hard to over come,
    humble and tolerance is the rewards
    that breed strong men.

    The symbolic moralities of man,
    shall be the nations of his sons
    The seed that create strong nations
    and the image that will follow
    after him the creation of tribes. ​

    The definition of a blackman is in the image of God, sister's must be able to identify what and who is man, brothers as well must identify who is woman.
    there are many who wear the mask, but my brothers who wear the armor of his name, should not be damaged by those who come in his image man. It is not the picture but the frame which he wares, blessings my king you are worthy of the honor and more, two many brothers are being scorn by the image of a cloan, that has no loyaltiy to his own frame. You are welcome respect my king. Behind every action there is a reaction, and sisters must be responsible as well as brother's who they chose to be there mates. Every man or women should not take the blame for one's mistake in chosing a mate. :luvv:

    I would also like to thank my sisters as well. :luvv:
