Black Men

Black men are becoming endangered species
Since slavery, we’ve been targeted and slaughtered We left Africa as Kings
endured the sting of lashes from the N word
survived absurd inhumane treatments
bodies hung on trees, planted as seeds
Our blood fertilized the soil,
Toiled to cultivate this land
yet denied access to its fruits
We’ve always been the bad weed
that gets pruned and killed
in this US plantation of freedom The real notion Should be #blackLivesNeverMattered
My passion and pride for my people
is but a faint picture of the flame
That burns in Jesus’ heart
for humanity to believe in him
and become his bride.
Lord knows as a black man
I’m trying to love my neighbor like myself,
But it’s hard when they’re doing unto me
What they don’t want me to do to them!
We’re backwards and country
We got a country fighting over
#hashtag distractions instead of real solutions internally flirting with a civil war
where cops, civilians, and citizens are mourning over loved ones wrongfully toe tagged every morning
Good morning America!!!
Let’s go back to ABCs of G-O-D
Put on the fabric of Acts 4
To model the gospel for
a hostile society suffocating for hope
No law will ever legislate, alleviate,
The people’s pain and persecution
Trump the nonsense and preside over
The fact that there’s no government solution
To being gunned down because your skin is brown!
I got a bible that summons me to submit primarily
To my Savior before local authorities
Like David my hands are trained for war
Fingers ready for battle
Since scripture predates the second amendment
My mandate to bear arms grandfathered the constitution I’m down to love my enemies,
do good to those who hate me
bless those who curse me,
and pray for those who use me
Don’t get it twisted, if I have to snatch
a double edged sword, bow and arrow,
sling shot and a rock, a staff, a jaw bone, or a gun
I’m at peace to war for any cause The Lord approves.
I’m sure the world wonders
how in the world the black man
is still alive after the constant murder of millions unlawful incarcerations, and endless assaults
to exterminate its kind since the 1400s
Ginlè nèg sa yo se yon bann zonbi!
On the contrary, we’re simply
soldiers on the front line
of an army that can use 300 men
To defeat a nation
Problem is we don’t know our identification in Him
The hood don’t know we’re part of a royal priesthood!
Our battles are already won
When we are weak, we’re strong
As long as we remain mentally enchained
and illiterate from this knowledge
we’ll continue to die in body and in spirit
God's plan has always been
For the people with melanin skin
To be part of the multitude of nations
in the 7th chapter of revelation
These trigger happy words
are like fingers poking
into your chests to rest in
the wicked parts of mankind's hearts
So we can be transformed into the kind of men
with Christ like power, obedience, and justice
Thus lies the heart and the start of a resolute
