    What has man become
    what have we done
    what have done to desensitize our selves to what goes on
    around us.
    we are no longer the perfect beautiful creatures we were meant to be
    victims of hatred, prejudice and guile.

    What have we become
    when our best friend is a dog
    A grown man becomes a 'son'
    and your woman ,a *****, or some thing of the sort

    When will we rise from the quagmire that
    decimates our people
    starves our young right from the fetus.
    when will rise to be the kings and queens we were destined to be
    and not the dredges of our manmade society

    When will we have some pride,
    restrain ourselves and take life in stride.
    F**k the oppressor, and by any means necessary
    make to the top
    let them see that we dont need their hand outs, their pittance to be free.

    Hell , if we survive slavery , and they havent wipe us out.
    then we can get off that opiate they use to keep us down.
    grow up and stand on your own
    and maybe one day you will own the world
