    when i learn more about my race
    i feel the hurt build in me
    the kidnapping from our home
    the betrayal of us
    the struggle that got us
    to this point

    when i learn more about my race
    i feel the beauty surround me
    the pride of the King
    the pride of the Queen
    the pride of being an African

    when i learn more of my race
    it is a mixture of emotion
    as i grow and explore more
    one day i will find a balance

    I feel this most intensely, Bluewater. I took those classes in college and they would always hurt me, but make me so proud of the African-American race at the same time. This is beautifully posed.

    To learn more, is to know more of what our ancestors experienced..Makes us know more that it could have definitely been us. So true.

    indeed as we look deep
    the struggle of defeat how
    we was stolen , sold for silver
    tea kittles betrayed beaten
    it leave me hurt and yet strong
    to turn dis struggle we face into
    the depth of grace and move to
    a far greater reason ...i feel u so deeply sistah bluewater..

    may we unite in unity
