Four Little Girls

Four little Black girls
angels, there were four
left bible class early,
angels forever more.
Went to the church
basement, probably to chat
no clue as to why their
lives would end just like that.
Just like that, there was
an explosion, that erased
four precious lives
that can never be replaced.
The outcry was loud,
the disbelief was clear.
How could anyone kill babies?
Was all you could hear.
Was this meant to be
their destiny?
Were these angels
supposed to leave a legacy
behind reminding all
of the horror of hate?
Impelling those to speak
out of the wrong
that was ingrained in too
many minds for too long?
How can these four angels
truly rest in peace?
The struggle continues...
Will it ever cease?

Praising The Lord
So special our ancestors
and the things they have done

A lot of there accomplishment
was kept under in the dark

but as time moves on
all of this has been expose

i am proud of who i am
and the blood that flood my veins
we are a great peolpe true indeed
and we have unleash our own history

no longer are we kept in the dark
as it is written in black and white

of the greatness of our race
move forward
in our own RACE

Peace

Dr. King's Dreams

He tried to love all the hate away
Tried to conquer violence with peace
Was successful in the way that he lived
Before violence made his earthly life ceace

At the news of his death Many took to the streets
To destroy to loot and to burn
There was no reflection by some
To consider at all what if anything Dr. King did earn

They merely felt all the hate not loved away
And left peace, their violence to vent
As if the whole world had ended that day
With rage into the streets they went

Unprepared to wage a real battle
With plans to bring a needed goal into sight
Just a spontaneous emotional eruption
An uncoordinated hopeless fight

Now the smoke has all settled And the tempers have cooled
And Dr. King has been made an international hero
Yet the questions stilll linger in society's mind
Where was Dr. King going to go

Had he lived to be forty and on to this day
What direction would he have taken
What of his many dreams for humanity
Have they all been hopelessly forsaken

And taken up by even his enemies
Who now do lip praises now that he is physically absent
And try to use his name to work against his ambitions
And to slow down the coming judgement

Try as they will they can't stop King/dom come
Dr. King was surely one sent to usher in
The justice that the Creator designed for mankind
And this will continue on to the win
