Why is it, that most of the time I feel
disconnected from something I’ve never known
or perhaps witnessed once, first hand
in a far off time, somewhere
in a far off land,
like peace, that had no bitter taste behind it,
or joy, that didn’t evaporate before my eyes,
or love, that saturated deep into my core
no pain, no lies,
just clear, blue African skies,
and the soothing sound of singing
instead of another mother’s cries
over dead sons and mixed-up daughters,
many nights, flickering stars stealing my concentration on sleep,
I long for a bridge over troubled waters,
it’s been said,
we, as a people, ‘grow the fruits, but eat the rind’
our past defined in a sorrowful dance—
one step forward, two behind,
until I find myself cursing circumstance…
silently screaming within
wondering when is my chance,
to shine…black and brightly,
daily radiating for my peers,
nightly, glowing as a beacon
to show that we can overcome,
reaching my highest point,
success and then some…
well, I say the time is now…
no more lying dormant in the streets,
no more looking at victory as fantasy
and reality, another defeat…
no more desecration of our women
(my inner strength/mahogany suns)
no more downplaying my worth,
revolution has begun,
and it begins with me…
and him…and the next brotha…
and the next…
until we’ve reached all of our goals,
and recognized that our regrets
were really blessings in disguise,
that made us stronger, made us wise…
no longer will we walk in blindness,
today we open our eyes…
this is what we need,
to realize
that who we are
is what makes us strong…
a brotherhood,
each one connected,
no battles fought alone…
and we have the most beautiful,
all our Queens as our backbones….
we will stand
We will stand
and understand
that yesterday….today…tomorrow…
our reward of inner peace will vindicate our struggles,
our joy, eradicating our sorrow

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
