Am I Not a Man and a Brother...


To Know Thyself is to KNOW THYSELF!!
© 2016  Sy’needa Penland

For total and complete liberation
of the Black Man's Soul;

Will require him to erase
all the lies he's been told;

Will require him to believe that
he has the heart of a lion;

Will require him to believe
that his soul isn't dying;

Will require him to believe in
all things created by God;

Will require him to break free of
the shackles and the rod;

Will require him to know that
deep within his heart and soul
is a breast plate made of Gold;

Will require him to imagine himself
along the Ivory Coast of the Nile;

Will require him to know that
His seeds are the most fertile;

Will require him to accept
his true faith and inheritance;

Will require him to know that
the Universal God (not Jesus)
is his deliverance;

Will require him to set his spirit
and his soul free;

Will require him to know that
the flesh is what holds on to
the soul’s inflicted misery.
