“The Ancestors Speak!

We’ve lived through;
persecution, multilation, social devastation, excruciating pain;
bondage, shackles, thrashings, bashings;
the ravaging of the motherland.

We’ve survived starvation,
dehydration, inflammation, that horrible trip;
tossing, tipping, constant dripping, sea sickness;
the belly of the ship…

We’ve endured indignation,
humiliation, sequestration,
the stripping of our souls;
Desecration, degeneration, castration,
the market place,
being sold…

We’ve drudged through war,
brother against brother, blood, mason dixon,
the blue and the grey;
Destruction, emancipation, reconstruction,
forty acres, broken promises;
What mule?
No pay…

We’ve overcome racism,
discrimination, segregation, deprivation,
generations of being second class…
Alienation, degradation, mortification,
all sorts of derogatories;
thank God free at last…

Now we live with a simulation of freedom,
equality, prosperity, liberty,
and justice for all…

The black, the green, the red, the white, the blue;
African, American;
Standing strong;
Standing tall…

So never, never, never, never;
Never Forget!!!

“The Ancestors Speak!!!”
