“African”

“The power of truth is what poisoned the root.
Hidden behind lies, cloaked in uncertainty,
A beautiful tree of righteous validity.

Still battling a centuries old war,
Closer to victory? I’m still unsure.

But I think frozen eyes are beginning to see,
The reality of our proud civility.
A greater emphasis on history needs to be planned,
So misrepresentation won’t entomb the black man.”©

Unless the future holds something greater who knows anyways,

Enjoy the rest of your weekends everyone.

So why is there still close minded people. Or how?

Social tensions are high in America right now, from race to ideologies and the always classic religion. Eventually something has to give and, instead of a long winded speech on current situations, I decided to approach things differently. Try and be more universal, putting things in layman terms.
