You are the eventuality
Of a minority
Syndromes of inferiority complexes
A built in slave mentality
Behind walls of illiteracy
Wisdom is obliterated
By greed and angst
Love is replaced
By temporary flashes of pleasure
The jewel of your womb is never treasured
Unknown pathways through
Mazes of your mind
Wades the creatures of darkness
Devouring melanin bound
Discoveries of memories
Old as Methuselah, Medusa,
Denkenesh of Ithiopia

You are the eventuality
Of a minority
If you didn’t remember
That the jewel of your womb
Is to be treasured
One to keep forever
For life is pure
And sweet as
Nectars of my dreams
Where we rise, where we fly

Where we are no longer
Eventual minorities
Without ancient memories
Of when we ruled dynasties
Possessed great cities
Sat upon thrones of
High Divine Royal lineage

Knowledge permits
The eventuality
Of a minority
A built in slave mentality
To be absolutely deleted.

Ashanti Tafari

"Education intensifies natural gifts and ability, but mere education, unless founded on a historical and cultural framework, will bear no fruits."
