Where are you my Brothas?

In this essence in time
it seems that we're
extinct and blind.
Our women, our children,
our mothers and  fathers
cannot find us.

Have we disappeared?
Have we allowed
America  to smear
our image with
misconceptions and lies
created out of hatred and fear?

Look at us brethren
Our situation is beyond critical
Instead of unified
Kings and noble men
We've become spirit-less,
material lusting individuals.

We are no longer
the images of our fathers,
grandfathers and great-grandfathers
We're even condemned by them
Living in a world of
constant battles and sin.

We're sending our
own selves to our ends
No longer friends, just bodies
braving the wild of the world
Losing our souls as time unfurl.

It's sad that I no longer
feel kin to my brethren.
I feel alien amongst crowds
of loud-talkin', fast walkin',
women cursin' studs
Who have drug the
image of us in the mud.

We no longer have respect
for our Nubian Queens
It is an understatement to say
that we treat them cruel and mean.
Our behavior amongst them
is extreme
We no longer exist with
our Queens as a team.

We Brothas call our
precious women everything
but who and what they truly are,
which has left our Queen's spirits
colored with bruises and scars.
We treat them so foul
that one outside of our race
would doubt that they're ours
to serenade with
beautiful names and respect
Instead we'd rather
treat them with neglect.

My Brothers where art you?!
As our little men and
women experience this world
without proper guidance
and protection
We've left it to the media,
sports stars and degrading
rap and R

We should first show solidarity with each other. We are Africans. We are black. Our first priority is ourselves.
