I said I was going to be great, Lead my people to strength in a bottle, Teach them how to live life at full throttle, I told them I was going to make history, no not just "His" story.. but "her"story too, because stories of strong women, thru a mans eyes are called tall tales, and legends, do I make my point to you? I said i would turn the cold concrete of the streets, and plant grass beneath your feet. Teach the children how to plant, potatoes and beets. I told them, I would never let them down.. No matter what Condi did to black children across the country. A sell out, could not be me. I shall not rest until.. I have done what was promised of me. I told them Id lead them, I meant every word to be true. Everyone was supporting me, had my back thru and thru. I said I was a republican, like we were back then, who supported economic reform. They didnt know what to do! For education! less taxation! on the poor of this great nation, They looked at my face then: Face first, then skin. And realized we were kin. Then they stopped listen'n. Cause' black people cant win! Tired of gettin let down, again, and again. We dont trust our own brothers & sisters, yet we believe them white men! Hating your creed, should be a mortal sin! "This poem was written, in blood sweat and tears. No matter how hard "good ppl" try we can never win over our peers. All cause of too many let downs, over the last hundred years."
