    And I received
    notes as well
    detailing how we
    would escape this hell
    It seems we had
    a friend among our foes
    a brother who had been
    passing, or so the tale goes.
    He also was on kitchen detail.
    And had access to a drug for AIDS.
    An experimental drug, with
    more promise than any in decades.
    But they weren't sure of the dosage
    or side effects, and that's where us blacks
    came in. Virtual lab rats we were
    for a medical team of quacks.
    As soon as our fair skinned brother
    succeeded in giving double doses to
    our captors, we were given the signal
    to attack. Knowing what we had to do,
    we used every ounce of strength left
    to defeat the enemy. I was taught to abhor
    this type of violence. But they were
    determined to kill us, so that meant war.
    The taste of blood was sweet, although
    I had never killed anyone before.
    There were thousands of other captives,
    being held, no rest for the weary was in store.
    We rounded up all weapons and ammunition
    and began our plan to save some more
    of our Nubian people. We had to save our
    brothers and sisters. Let the battle cry roar!!!!


    Enough! Enough!
    I tossed and turned.
    I know what this all means
    Believe me, I've learned.
    That together we are a force
    and apart we are meek.
    Black unity is the united state
    all brothers and sisters should seek.
    I will try to make a difference in my life.
    Please, I haven't slept sound in over a week.
    And a voice from somewhere beyond whispered....
    All right my child, you may rest. I honestly do
    believe you've been taught a valuable lesson. So, who's
    next to enter The Slave Narratives? Could it be you?


    The End?

    you know i'm jumpin' and bowin' at the same time. i'm jumpin cause of the writing skillz but i'm bowin' too cause this scenario is absolutely possible.

    after reading all 3 of these, they are not far fetched dreams at all...

    if this is the end of this one...then you gotta start another...that's it case closed...
