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
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!!!

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
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...

Akshan...that was indeed a beautiful poem.
Peace and one love
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..
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
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
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..
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
WAt the hell a gwan now!!
Yo Akshan !! mi see you ova ya a kiss up di gal dem... mi can't hate yo fi dat... Gwan youth.. di words wicked still , mi a tief da last one deh fi mi gal.. ya done know!!
big up Idren!
