In my native scribble I write with complete disregard for those who place themselves above me, because in the end they’re beneath it all.
In my native scribble I speak of the unjust rules that are in place, because they are not there to make me strong, they are there to make me a slave.
In my native scribble I depict my mind wandering free, because in my harsh reality I’m not allowed to speak my peace.
In my native scribble I can describe the pain I feel, and to the opposition, I will never, ever yield.
Through my native scribble my spirit remains alive, and though I may not always be here, my spirit, it will never die.
Through my native scribble I can break down all barriers, and through the words that I write, I’ve become the “Lone Warrior”.
In my native scribble I’ve written a song I love to sing, and because of that song, my freedom, one will certainly ring.
In my native scribble its clear my situation sucks, but if you can’t define any of the words I’ve used, too bad, go and look them up!
Infinite possibilities and definite instability.
The beginning of loves trilogy, of love, war, and love again.
A constant struggle to try and make this happen.
But that old ex-factor seems to be a war I just can’t win.
It must be me, its just gotta be.
Something about me pushes you away, while the rest of me force’s you to stay.
Who knew the emotions of the heart could cause so much dismay?
I try to pray, but don’t know what to ask for.
I try to stay, but don’t know if I can take anymore.
Torn in two by the idea of me alone, and the idea of me and you.
So confused, can’t fathom me alone, aloof and askew.
So just tell me what to do, because if you ask me…
I want it to be Me & You!
Ferragamo’s on my feet, a Hugo trench on my back,
But please believe it’s not about what I wear.
There’s so much more to me than that.
I’m forthright and direct, genuine and true.
I believe in my abilities, even when belief is not in you.
I’m a man of greatness, my true greatness, not yet achieved.
So why should I care, what anyone else thinks of me?
I’m full of life and love experience and I’m wise too.
I seek a change in a system, so corrupted and askew.
A worldly system, so plagued with discrimination,
is a system that will fall, and fail in recuperation.
Through determination, I’ll do my best to make you aware.
I’m an educated Black Man, America’s worst nightmare!
I can love you from mountains men can’t climb,
I can love you from places where there’s no space or time.
I can love you in light and darkness just the same,
For my love is so powerful in cannot be tamed or contained.
I can love you underwater, 10,000 feet deep,
I can love you without oxygen, because you’re the air that I breathe.
I can love you up close and a millions miles away,
I love you in the past, future and especially present day.
I can love you so deeply and strong, and with perfect aim,
I love you so much, I can love you passed your pain.
