WHAT’S IN YOUR DNA IS IN YOUR DNA
YOU CAN’T CUT OUT OF WHAT’S IN YOUR BLOODLINE
YOU CAN’T ADOPT THE WAYS OF THE ENEMY AND THINK IT WILL WORK ON YOUR BLOODLINE
WE CAN RUN BUT WE CAN’T HIDE FROM WHO WE ARE AND THE TRUAMA THAT’S DEEPLY INBETTED
WE UNDERSTOOD WHAT WE DESERVED, WHO WE WERE AND THE SCHEMES THEY PLAYED ON US BUT WE TOOK AND RAISED YOU TO BE TOTALLY OPPOSITE
BUT THERE IS ONE THING, WE LIVE IN THE SAME AMERICA
WE TRAINED YOU IN THE WAY THE BIBLE SAID
NOW WE ARE BURYING YOU LIKE THE ENEMY SAID
WE PROVIDED HAPPINESS WITH A SENCE OF TRUTH BEHIND THE HOW
WE DIDN’T ABUSE YOU, WE SAVED YOU
WE MADE YOU UNDERSTAND CONSEQUENCES LIKE WE WANTED TO PRESERVE OUR CULTURE AND WE DID
WE COULDN’T GIVE YOU PEACE BECAUSE FROM EVERY SECOND WE DIDN’T KNOW IF YOU WOULD COME BACK TO US BECAUSE AFTER ALL……
BUT THERE IS ONE THING, WE LIVE IN THE SAME AMERICA
TO THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER
TO THINK YOU CAN RAISE DIFFERENTLY
TO THINK YOU CAN HAVE MORE
TO THINK WE WERE YOUR NEMISS
TO DEVALUE, DILUTE, DIMINISH, DISRESPECT AND DISREGARD ALL WE DID TO GET YOU TO THIS POINT WITHOUT BEING CLEAR ON THE WHY AND HOW IS AS IGNORANT AND ASENINE AS IT GETS AND THE CAUSE OF MENTAL CHAOS AND ILLNESS.
WE ARE BEHIND ACHIVEMENTS
WE ARE BEHIND PROGRESS
WE ARE BEHIND LIFE SAVING INVENTIONS
WE ARE BEHIND GREAT CONTRIBUTIONS
WE ARE BEHIND ADVACEMENTS
WE ARE BEHIND GREAT HIGHLIGHTS
WE ARE BEHIND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
WE ARE BEHIND EXCEPTIONALITY
WE ARE BEHIND SUPERIORITY
HOW? 
WE KNEW OUR LANE
WE KNEW OUR ROLE
WE KNEW OUR PLACE
WE UNDERSTOOD THAT CHILDREN WERE TO BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD
WE DON’T NORMALIZE INSANITY
WE KNOW WE MUST BE MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY STRONG
WE KNOW WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER
WE KOW WE HAVE A NO EXCUSE POLICY
WE UNDERSTOOD WHAT OUR ANCESTORS HAD WITHIN THEM IS WITHIN US
WE DID’T LISTEN TO THE ENEMY AND TAKE ON HIS WAYS, THOUGHTS, BELIEFS AND VALUES
WE TOOK PRIDE AND HIGHLY RESPECTED OUR OWN VALUES, CULTURE, AND STANDARDS AND EXPECATIONS OF OUR ELDERS
