Lend me your ear young man. I am going to make you aware of their plan. Your body is trapped on the land. But your soul has a chance to advance…
The picture painted before you is all an illusion one shrouded in bliss, centuries of queendom now cast way, as if your true history never exists…
Where do you stand? You will see it’s your fall… But, in these lines I will give you jewels to get over the wall…
Misapprehension has falsely claimed self consciousness, ill fallacies, caught in a mental state of a coma…
Pulse racing, truth diluted, family destructed… It’s time for falsities to be uprooted. King your skin is a royal garment although your throne has been departed. Knowledge will awaken you from your slumber… Lioness roots can’t be silenced just like rain can’t overcome thunder…

Like rain they will attempt to wash away your dignity, but they cannot take what you do not freely give. Melaninated beauty, take up your crown and remove the chains from off your brow. Walk tall and know that you are the truth, not halve truths, but the truth through which humanity and civilization came…
From the pitch black darkness of history life began. Hue by diction defines beauty. So why are the blue blacks treated with such cruelty? The darker my covering the stronger my ether… Young man are you starting now to see this new picture?
Your beautiful idiosyncrasies incomprehensible, savage is what they claimed you to be. Maimed & raped, they thought all glory was stolen from you…they fail to comprehend that royalty runs through your veins. Yet, Queen continue to walk as if you have diamonds that fall from your legs and rise as though a phoenix ascending from the oppressive flames of this world…
Let’s place truth to this misrepresentation. Traveling back to the fertile crescent, reading the lines of 42 confessions. Acts of sodomy and impurity were not to be upheld. Young black man review your roots before casting your soul into hell. Nature can be your key. There is one divine way to create the human seed…

Queen as you stand poised in the calmness of the world’s calamity, as divinity will have it he will approach with gentleness yet know the power of his manhood. He will stand as the foundation, the axis of the earth, steady & noble in his ways. As one you will travel in this world on one accord, hearts in unison towards a victory falsely trumped…
King she waits for your guiding hand. Though the past has tried to make your mind become engulfed in the dream of this land. The nation is where your freedom fight should be pursued. The greatest gift that can be granted is the love from her blackness the mix of you two is something enchanting…
 
Physical & mental chains removed but hearts forever bound. Despite histories turmoil, love withstood the storm, leading towards transcendence. Let love be the guiding light that leads you in a world of chaos. Unite as one and continue to let your love elevate you towards higher consciousness…
Dark is how life begins, dark is how life ends, there is something great grafted in the blackest of skin. Re-unite to the half that society has tried to pry away. She was with you in the chains and you both have suffered through the same pain. Be the historian who writes his own his-tory, make sure your using your black pen…
