    Default LORD WHY DID YOU MAKE ME BLACK (a poem)

    NO I DID NOT WRITE THIS I AM JUST SHARING IT! i'M SURE SOME OF YOUR RECEIVED THIS IN YOUR EMAIL A WHILE BACK.

    LORD WHY DID YOU MAKE ME BLACK
    Lord, Lord,
    Why did You make me Black?
    Why did You make me someone
    The world wants to hold back?
    Black is the color of dirty clothes;
    The color of grimy hands and feet.
    Black is the color of darkness;
    The color of tire-beaten streets.
    Why did you give me thick lips,
    A broad nose and kinky hair?
    Why did You make me someone
    Who receives the hatred stare?
    Black is the color of a bruised eye
    When somebody gets hurt.
    Black is the color of darkness.
    Black is the color of dirt.
    How come my eyes are brown and not
    the color of the daylight sky?
    Why do people think I'm useless?
    How come I feel so used?
    Why do some people see my skin
    and think I should be abused?
    Lord, I just don't understand;
    What is it about my skin?
    Why do some people want to hate me
    And not know the person within?
    Black is what people are "listed,"
    When others want to keep them away.
    Black is the color of shadows cast.
    Black is the end of the day.
    Lord, You know, my own people mistreat me;
    And I know this isn't right.
    They don't like my hair or the way I look
    They say I'm too dark or too darn light.
    Lord, Don't You think it's time
    For You to make a change?
    Why don't You redo creation
    And make everyone the same?

    (God answered saying
    Why did I make you black,
    You have the audacity to ask?
    I did not do it as a joke,
    Or as some cruel task.
    Get off your knees and look around.
    Tell Me, what do you see?
    I didn't make you in the image of darkness.
    I made you in the Likeness of Me!
    I made you the color of coal
    From which beautiful diamonds are formed.
    I made you the color of oil,
    The Black gold that keeps people warm.
    I made you from the rich, dark earth
    That grows the food you need.
    Your color's the same as the panther's
    Known for (HER) beauty and speed.
    Your color's the same as the Black stallion,
    A majestic animal is he.
    No! I didn't make you in the Image of darkness
    I made you in the Likeness of Me!
    All the colors of a Heavenly Rainbow
    Can be found throughout every nation;
    And when all those colors were blended well,
    YOU BECAME MY GREATEST CREATION!
    Your hair is the texture of lamb's wool;
    Such a humble, little creature is he.
    I am the Shepherd who watches them.
    I am the One who will watch over thee.
    You are the color of midnight skies,
    I put the stars' glitter in your eyes.
    There's a smile hidden behind your pain,
    That's the reason your cheeks are high.
    You are the color of dark clouds
    Formed during my strongest winters in December.
    I made your lips full so
    When you kiss the one you love...they'll remember.

    Your stare is strong; your bone structure,
    Thick....to withstand the burdens of time.
    The reflection you see in the mirror...
    The Image looking back at you is MINE!
    So in answer to all of your questions,
    And to forgive you for all of your flack;
    These are the reasons, I THE LORD
    Made you SO BEAUTIFUL AND BLACK!!!

    Default mi wi post first for di ebonite

    Wake up fair beauty…for the spell has been broken
    You heart is now free and your mind can be open
    Your body can now feast on the sweet words that are spoken
    Disband the depravity of the days gone by
    Unconsciously inviting in so many words I specify
    You are a dream that I see when I open my eyes
    Sweet queen
    Please open your eyes and gaze upon a man with intentions that are pure
    Your elegance alone does not define who you are
    Although you may define me as L with three letters more
    I ask you to not mistake my intentions for simple fascinations of a man
    For all through the world you will not find a man who is a bigger fan
    If fascination is your thought of me then you truly do not understand/
    Mystify me with a sweet kiss of your lips/
    Place me in a trance with the movement of your hips
    Every minute you are away it’s your aura that I miss
    Sweet ebonite you are the elite
    No other woman in the world could be as sweet
    Magnificence and intelligence, your mind alone is a treat
    Sweet ebonite queen
    Your body is a marvel your mind is a dream
    You are articulate as you’re defined
    A true woman of distinction refined
    Untouched by the grayness of life
    Capsuled in the spirit of all that is right
    Spirituality and creativity, beauty and grace
    Gorgeous is your body and beautiful is your face

    dat one a fi yo mi ebonite queen...

    Default big up Symmetry and Legs4U

    Dis ya one is another fi Symmetry, mi neva see yo but mi a hail yo...

    To kiss your sweet lips I would cross all borders
    Gave into your eyes with truthful intent
    To hold you for a minute I would disobey all orders
    Gather all my tears of joy for it’s only without you that I lament
    May I entrap you in a room with four corners?
    Not letting go of your sweet presence as if I were cement
    I am lost with out your love and grace
    Lost to myself unseen as if I had no face
    Visioning a woman of your caliber in nothing more than a pair of panties fitted in lace
    Oh the way you amaze with a slide of your hip I am entranced
    Enhanced by the things you say and do
    The Symmetry of your personality desplays a radiating essence
    Monotony I welcome in your presence
    The minutes turn to hours the days to months
    I want to be the one you need and the only one you want
    If a hopeless mission I concede to be held in your arms
    Shamefully giving in to my lust for life’s pleasures
    For the time that pass we build, elation light as a feather
    Come to me my dear, I will be your standard you definition your ledger

    Big up Symmetry.. yo no need fi a war wid no man... Bacil no know him fi uplift yo not tryin to diss yo up.. nuff luv ya sistren..

    Arrow Okay.. Here's a lil' summin', Akshan..

    Beautiful brotha, can I take a moment to honor you?
    Because in honoring you, I honor myself
    And in honoring me, you honor yourself
    For we are one..
    A union, born in the immuculateness of divinity
    Yes.. We are one, and not at all separate entities
    From clean conception did our souls come
    Born to compliment each other, congruent spirits, equaling one
    It is not our nature but rather the twisted nurturing of chains
    And names
    Branded to our skills, our souls
    Making us think otherwise
    But you alone I want and need, King, never mind these other guys
    And forced me to look at you swing from southern trees
    And the spiritual breeze
    Makes me recollect.. They held you down and forced you to look
    At them sliding those foreign phalices in between my knees
    And in my collective mind, I squeeze
    And scream when one of my own partakes in this
    I need you to hold me in your strong arms for ancestral
    Sake a bit
    And I bathe you in my light, holding you as you shake a bit
    See?
    Do you get it?Do you any of you get it?
    We have to heal each other
    While everyone takes care of their own
    We' too busy denyin' that we sistaz and brothaz
    Forget what you heard, the truth is we need each other
    And those who dream of world peace
    Why do you get so threatened and hostile
    When I talk about unity
    This one is really for all my brothaz
    And if you don't like it, well okay.. it ain't got to havenothin' to do with you
    By the way, keep doin' ya thing, Akshan. Nuttin' but lub 4 U..

    Cool Mr. Gal Warria

    big up Sym still.. but Akshan no done yet.... mi still a run the gambit..... ya done know.

    Early in the morning I decide to drop you a free verse
    Emotionally stable but a little bit perverse
    Esteem you high never secondary I hold you first
    Conveying to you the way I feel, its for you I have a thirst
    Life is truly too short to be living it in fear
    So I lay out my cards candidly to share
    Every moment you are away I long to have you near
    Wanting to define you and make all things clear
    Understanding who you are for its your heart I want to share
    Envisioning us intertwined in a bond of lust
    Looking into your eyes as I kiss you with each silent thrust
    I know, I know …these words bring you disgust
    But reality is what I speak with total respect and trust
    Fear not when I speak openly and free
    Sexual is my mindset, so let what will be, be
    A moan and a oohh are all the words you let out
    For I know in this hour only a compliment of pleasure will come from your mouth.
    I long for a time when you may envision and capture the way I see you
    Thighs like the heavens I long to be within you
    Cloaked in your blanketed covers smoothly shaven
    A masculine moan with your feminine breathing
    We must not rush for in the morning I know you will be leaving
    Time tested and realizations confessed
    I lay here in the midst of your caress
    Kissing your honey lips flavorful and fresh
    Entice me with the gift of you, so I too may feel as Blessed
    --NNP--
