    it took a while
    to look in the mirror to really
    understand what eye saw
    initially third eye undeveloped
    just a sperm
    looking for an egg to hide in
    swimming among questions
    unanswered unheard
    before my mind grew insight
    and upon knowledge found
    a blakverb was born
    maybe i was just a "re"verb
    an echo of my ancestors sound

    while observing self with my
    "in"vision i saw the pass ages
    from the pages of an ancient
    "our"story written on my bones
    and the screams and tears
    of those that didn't make it across the
    atlantic and the sweat and blood of
    those that unfortunately did
    flow through my veins
    see

    i've learned that the freedom that death
    provides is far better than ignorance
    that shackles the soul

    and i grew

    to a blakverb with no "C"

    cause ain't no "colored" in me

    never has been

    never will be.

    gone come"
