    Sometimes we are just compelled to write. Yes, I think we as a people tend to lash out at each other more, in general. All you can do is what you think is correct, despite the nay sayers which there will always be. Although, we won't agree on everything, and of course we shouldn't, hopefully positive feedback outweighs the negative. Not sure if this was based on something that happened, or if you are just speaking in general terms.

    ty dear brother for posting this flow
    your poems will help us to grow
    to remind us that each breath taken
    is the air we fought for
    and not to sell ourselves short
    Peace
    BlueWater:heart:

    Who said I was to black??...wasn't me :lol: for I am an "ORIGINAL" black...and therefore I am only knowledgeable in...breathing, eating, thinking,learning growing and :luvv: ing black...
    Who said I was to black??...wasn't me :lol: for I came directly from a KING and QUEEN of darkness, where there (by the way) was darkness FIRST and I came out crying from a dark place...
    Who said I was to black??... wasn't me :lol: for I know it was my black forefathers who built empires and the pyrimids that can't and haven't been dulipcated by europeans throughtout the universe, who paved the roads that we now stand upon.
    No, ...wasn't me :lol: for I am an "ORIGINAL" true black queen of queens.
    this is a wonderful poem...thanks for sharing

    Brother,
    your work is always so insightful
    thought provoking piece...
    I know what you're saying
    when one takes a stand
    and chooses not to jump
    on the bandwagon...
    suddenly your a threat
    or looked upon negatively...

    never to black...never that
    feeling your work
