BLACK MEN: FROM ME TO YOU


I want to release the memories that
hold you hostage¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬
I want to do an exorcism on your demons
‚Ä" fear, guilt and sadness
I want my thoughts about your grandeur to
replace your thoughts of inadequacy
I want to free you from the prison that
surrounds your heart


I want to unlock the passion that you
keep hidden under lock and key
I want to release the rivers you‚Ä(tm)ve
created boundaries around
I want to take off the blindfold that hides
you from yourself


I want the warrior you are to kick the
asses of all your inhibitions
I want your confidence to knock
down mountains
I want your tears to replenish mother earth,
return her to a state of plenty
I want your smile to warm the hearts of
those who‚Ä(tm)ve become inhuman


I want to take you north like Harriet, on the
Underground Railroad
I want you to know that you are the
revolution you pray for
I want you to understand that we will not be
free until you are
I want you to realize that until your
liberation we will live in bondage
I want you to experience the joy that will
erase our suffering


I want you to take me to a place where
gentle waters flow
I want you to rescue me
¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ Will you?
