    Why are we here?
    No one here knocked down the towers
    as we bomb and shoot for hours

    Now it's us against the world.
    Why are we here?
    The land of the free and home of the bravery
    Who soon forgot the sin of slavery
    Bought and sold like so much cattle
    Soon forgot the chains that rattle

    They hate us so much
    Why are we here?
    We, who forced heroine on Asian for tea
    Trail of tears for Cherokee

    They hate us so much
    Why are we here?
    Too many lies, living in denial
    Too many lies and bogus trials
    We know why they hate us so
    Redskin, spic or ***** yo!

    Why are we here?
    GOD surely loves our blessed nation
    Who exported coupes and assasinations
    How much gold and oil and land
    did we steal with strengthened hand?

    You know why we're here!
    We must keep the lies going
    and the oil flowing
    Is that why babies are killing babies now?
    Why white folks cant have kids now?
    Why sisters have no men now?
    Why brothers die in the pen now?
    GOD takes his own revenge now!

    Why are we here?
    We know!

    You would think that from all we've had to endure, that we would have been erased all long time ago. But instead, we survive and we rise, despite it all. I felt such strength in your words brotha.

    All happenings has a purpose. Certain situations arise 2 seperate the evil from the guided & this is just part of the trial. We must stand firm in the storm.

    Nice write, wonderful read.

    HI Brother Kemetstry
    Your drop reflects the thought sof so many
    So ask the same question from your poem
    Why are we here. Because so much crazy stuff
    is going on . But hopefully we are here to put
    a stop to it. Much love. This is a mind awakening drop

    Peace~N~Love
