    Is it wise to expect less than your worth
    Or to let your soul shine forth
    The conception preceding Your birth?

    What mean this mystery
    Conceived by flawed perceptions
    Yet leans toward freedom at such a peaceful progression;
    That my people could ever be made to feel deserving
    Of less respect than God gave Adam after he sinned.

    Or less worthy of the pleasures of "Free Will"
    To determine for themselves where freedom lives
    Is that too much freedom for Us to have?
    And do you think I'd ask
    If I didn't intend on Deliverin' it?!
    God forbid a man not be man enough
    To man-up and do what he must.

    Grip the ground of my ancestors with certainty
    Sun shines the reflection of who We determine We be
    A fact that strikes terror to the heart of this Beast
    Who thinks himself clever enough
    To bargain with His King.

    Lusting for the womb of a Black mans Queen
    Rather corrupt me in my youth
    Than let my seed grow to choose for me.

    What mean this mystery?
    I've explained, both veiled and open, what it means I think;
    They stone the devil 'round Allah with ...
    Truth think enough to jar his brains loose from afar.

    We are made to feel as though we should expect less, but our ancestors would say, keep reaching for those stars, come what may. Power words poet, keep on speaking.

    Hi One9
    It is wise to see beyond the stars
    and reach toward that mystery.
    With an open heart and mind.
    Only a few was taught to do so.
    Yet now that we know
    we will teach it to our seed
    So they will grow to know
    Much love, very awesome flow

    Peace~N~Love
