Real

Being real requires you not to conform to society's lies and learn about what makes you vibe and embracing it Standing firm for the things you love and taking the negative things and erasing it Refuse to let it rear it's ugly head Negativity comes from how you process the nonsense you've been fed I recognize it's easy to be misled SO I encourage you to find the truth in what's been said and gain knowledge of self because I just can't help but to moan about the many who allow themselves to become slaves of misunderstanding ignorance begets ignorance and it's time for overstanding. Simply repeating affirmations of well being is a start in achieving what needs to be addressed...Simply repeating affirmations of well being is a start in achieving what needs to be addressed. Meditate on that Wrap tie your hair ladies show some respect And in the meantime haters got gray contacts attached to their pride denying who they are accepting that black is a disease and that it's ok to be called a nigg(a)er I was once considered 2/3 of a person How does this make sense I just can't fig(a)ure. Treated like my ancestors before me didn't slave for this country and that the blood sweat and tears from their tired foot steps running Was just a thing! BUT SCREW THAT I want reparations AND a formal apology No matter how mediocre it may seem! and 40 acres and a mule just not enough for those uprooted and forced by guns and was seized Transported like sardines and thrown overboard for the sharks to eat The rest brought here to perform dirty deeds Sold, bought, separated and hung by the noose of the thought of running away Illegal for me toeven learn so I fight for the children of today By encouraging them not to become modern day slaves and teaching them to take advantage of a system where some still deny that black is ok Reminding them that change takes time But there's power in numbers So it's time to UNITE

OoOo very strong poem here person! I have to admit i don't think it is as troublesome as you see it, but there is definetly still no equality, still hatetred, still rascism, still a whole lot of everything, but i also guess it depends where you live and how you live. Enjoyed your poem very good, not many touch on this subject like this :) ( at least haven't seen them)
