STATE OF THE BLACK FAMILY


Mortified and incensed by our exterior,
Ignorance, self-denial, self-perfidy; dwindles our desire.
Terrified of who we truly are; depositing venom into our wine jar.

Enchained by false knowledge, thoughts, and actions,
Threatened and divided by positions and possessions
Placing our royalties before loyalties; never concerned about the subsequent corollaries.

Refusing to recognize how valuable we are;
Disregarding all that we have worked so hard to achieve
Always looking to others for self identification,
Failing to acknowledge and defend all that we were taught and believe.

Not knowing who we were, who we are, and who we’ll grow to be,
Satisfied about our mental captivity,
Mutilated by the representation bestowed upon us by others; manipulates the state of the black family.
