Realistically its a fantasy because honestly...
They're not ready for me.
Not ready for a caramel colored Boss,
Qualified, they terrified because I'm legit.
Work gets harder and harder and I refuse,
To stop moving.
You thought I would say "Quit",
See what I mean?
I didnt step out that box, I ran.
Thats how it all got started,
Me running things, because I ran out of the box they set for me.
Im too big, too strong.
My G-D is too big and make no mistakes I am His,
And He is mine.
I was born this way, it didnt happen over time.
Their perception of me is Simple.
Yeah, Im offended.
Nothing is simple about me.
Call me Labryth because you wont get to my center without a fight.
Descendant of the Phoenix,
Out of the ashes you thought you made of me,
I arose with the flame of intensity.
Call me a Nigga. Please.
Because then I can show you what us NIGGAS do.
We make dreams out of nightmares,
Silk outta "nappy" hair.
And only a NIGGA can take a "whippin" and keep on tickin.
Call me girl when clearly you can see, Im a Grown Ass Woman.
Say I'm ignorant and watch me speak circles around you,
Eliquently assault you with my genius.
Look at me like a thief and watch me steal your supremacy.
Dismiss my presence the first time.
Next time you see me and I'll be checking your timesheet,
Cause I WILL be your boss.
I wrote this poem because today I was pissed off.
Im Black and I love it.
Educated and I love it.
Be afraid, Be Very Afraid...
Cause a NIGGA surpassed your perception.
Im starting to wonder if the N word is the new everything ....it seems to liberate those that enjoy using it whether through self expression, entertainment or educational reasons people are sincerely embracing it all over again apologies not accepted. My perception is that it has evolved and yet it is still the same. Like a company thats been established since when ...its been sold to everyone for years and has survive the times and is still in use today. Will we decide not to buy it and pass it on to the next generation? Or decide it's worth keeping around?
