Helping others is a Passion of mines for I'm one who understand fully that things happen in life.Women are the back bones of society, without women there would no world population, we birth the children, and children grow up, often time were left along to take care of the children, as mothers we are the teachers, the referee, the cook, the protector, there's so much influence on Disrespecting women on the internet, the media, and we sometimes fall victim to the ills of the world, through drugs, prostitution, abandonment, we feel helpless in our corners of the earth! we've depleted programs, and we have no one to turn to! lets do something about this. A sisters embrace is something I long to do helping women in need restoring dignity and respect claiming our place back in this world raising well rounded children and daughters so these cycles wont repeat helping out women, my sisters who cry in the night providing services as, self esteem restoration, rehabilitation, G.E.D, housing assistance emergency assistance, job training, teen pregnancy prevention,, childcare food pantry, soup kitchen job placement and more making this a reality would mean so much to a sister in need. And despite all this women are beautiful And we need them what would you do without her.
Black Love,...the creators Creator!...I'm glad to possess it,it runs through my veins... it Was what my ancestors possessed too! Blue black pulsating love and History and giving birth to greatness And a man who said he "loved me" He said I inspire him more than I'll ever know with my encouraging words and warmth a healing capacity for this man a re-awakening his black rage his black intellect buried deep in his blackness deep like the Afrikan center, the Congo...the Congo river ill be to this man, powerful, rich strong, flowing non stop. Black love you cant compare!, its the sun on a warm sunny day with its cumulus clouds and kissing me on my neck, sun tanning my already melanated body, Black love is hugging, touching, talking, loving, sexing oooo and ahhhh... fighting, cussing, falling out...and getting back together with feelings intense,holding hands and whispering in each others ear making plans to go away from this place depleting us from our Black love. Its fighting the systems, me, this man, our people trying to recapture time before the capture the deep Black passion and tradition,Black love is the colorful society in which we born out of our deep black warm womb, Black love is the foundation, Black love is the Omega.
When freedom rings for my people in the Diaspora and home in our Great Blak Mother...We gone cry. We gone cry because of past times and pastence and centuries and ions and what seemed to be an eternity of theft, exploitation, murder claim to our name, that pale face in the wrong place!. We gone cry because you arrived upon our land usurper, and from that time until our restoration we cry!. We cry for the great kingdoms that stood tall and crashed when you came upon us,We cry because you ripped the precious resources off our mother!,We cry for leaders The kings and Queens who to fight off leeching capturers. We cry because you began to kidnap my ancestors and used and abuse them and subjected them to deplorable conditions and to bring them upon this land, and that they will never see home again.
We cry some more we arrive upon a land cold and callous so far from our Great Blak Mother abundant in resources and loved ones left behind,... just going for a simple task, and got captured by Capitalism. We gone cry because you put us up on that auction block as if we were non Hue-man, animalistic,you poked, prodded, humiliated my people, ripped my ancestors apart from family as if we didn't have feelings. Mother away from child Husband away from wife you sold us, split us up throughout this western world. We gone cry because we showed you non cultural thieves everything you know!,we built this muthafucka from the soil all the way up top to the highest buildings and CEO positions at big corporations and banks and universities, We poured our blood in this concrete you walk upon. We gone cry because generations had gone by, so-called freed from slavery,Willie Lynch, Jim crow,segregation,civil rights,marching and not moving from our seats when asked hadn't changed you Bloodsucking leeches. We gone cry because we came this far, in this deep and had not seen change and the deep inflicted colonization. We gone cry because well respected Black Organizations still hadn't knocked you down. We gone cry because of the drugs and guns in our neighborhoods that YOU dump there,the murdering of young black men. We gone cry for the murder victims Oscar Grant,AmadouDiallo, Sean Bell. We gone cry because the UN-just system got our Freedom Fighting Political prisoners tangled in this web you weaved...Mumia, Assata, just to name a few. We gone cry because you try to extinct us put us in the front line of your war!. Despite it all WE ARE STILL HERE! we are unbreakable through the mis-treatment, the racism, the infectious colonization. We will return however long it may take with those tears in our eyes,We will lay down your murderous damned burden...We have arrived, Back to Original, Back to Harmony,...Mother Afrika
