    Got a lot on my mind
    But my humble design
    Has kept me from talking.
    Now I defy your weak power
    And am walking
    With the Ancestors.
    You see my Afrikan Clothes and know what's up
    White men down, Black Kings Up!

    Sisters be knowing you whack
    They chill wit u but still know Brothers r all dat
    U think we less than u, calling us spicks and nig*ers
    Thinkin we all thugs running with our fingers on da trigga
    I'm a honest man, eternal son and humble servant to my Queen.
    The only way you could be that to her is in your dream.
    You gotta lot of juice homie, but you can't fill my cup.
    White men down, Black Kings Up!

    U listen to our rap music and our R&B
    Dressing, talking, fronting and acting like me.
    White mans confused not sure what he wann' be.
    Browning his skin? Fattening his lip with a lil nip tuck?!
    Nah man....
    White men down, Black Kings up!

    I used to be nice to you, real humble and cool.
    But now you got me mad calling my Brother a fool.
    You thought cause I'm light or dress like you I'ma shut up?
    Whitey having his party, until I'm fed up.
    White men down, Black Kings up!

    Much Love to the original (Black Afrikan) Mother.

    ps.: Big up Lovesdestiny and Miss Lady for the inspiration. I can not match your skill, but a Brotha sure can try).

    Peace.

    Peace Destee Fam.

    It's good to know it was felt.

    Although this poem was built on two previous writes, it was from the heart.

    It's a shame what we do to ourselves for the cash and fake security. Sister and Brothers need to realize it's a real live war.

    Much Love to my people.

    Feel this, know this, be this.

    One.
