I am nothing with out my soul

« on: January 12, 2004, 08:01:31 AM »


As I walk this earth
I look around and see no growth
Coldness I feel
My blood boils as persons
Choose to accept negativity
Is it so hard to truth and reality?

Why can’t everyone see the truth?
Or is it they choose not to see it
But yet they know it is there
What sense does that accomplish
False pretences, False insecurities
Everything seems to be non-reality

How is it I see truth
Yet they don’t see
The Brainwashing, The Ignorance
A man drowning himself in his tears of lies
Praying one day to overcome his ways
Yet answering to a Massa of another kind everyday

How is it I see truth
Yet they still don’t see
A young mother on bended knee
Trying to supply food for her young and needed
So she sells her body daily
A father unwilling to accept responsibility
Yet in true ways he is the baby daddy
To both momma and daughta
O lord have mercy

Why so hard to accept truth
Is it so fair to say truth hurts?
Blacks dying daily
If not physically, yet mentally
And we say “we are free”
Yet we are still slaves
To this day of humility
We are not bond by physical chains
But by ones people hardly see
Or accept to be reality
Chains of insecurities, denying responsibilities
Brainwashing, ignorance and racial differences
The famous strong hold of them all

Truth why are persons afraid of you
Yet they sing them “Aint Neva Scared”
Yet we can face each other
Put bullets holes in another, just like us
For the most foolish securities
Talking about securing territories
Disgusting ourselves in tranquility

Truth why can’t they accept you
Why can’t they accept that blacks can be?
Something of dignity
Great pride and authority
They aint no “niggers” in the world today
A name which has a foul taste and stench
On any black man or woman of any class or authority
Whether rich, in-between or poor
That name still lingers on like a thief in the night
On the prowl
It lingers on in our very minds today
Why can’t they just see great blacks paving a way?
It was said to have a dream
And so many dreams have been accomplish in all ways

Truth one day I hope everyone else
Finds you like I did
And when they do, it won’t be too late
Because right now they don’t realize what they do
Or even their fate

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality.
