Uncle Tom Pt. II

by Kojo Din Sekou

look through my eyes so you can see my pain,
no one ever knew why I do what I do (you never asked).
The answer is; I do it all for you to do better than I
Now, make me proud and hold your head hi.

Uncle tom is what you called me, but you never knew.
Inside every uncle tom is a man just like you.
Have you ever loved something so much that you can do anything?
I swallowed my pride, sacrificed my feelings for you.

Did/do you appreciate it? -- I'm not sure
But my blood is not in your veins,
You call me names.
When you look back on your life remember,
The opportunities provided for you, was caused by me.
The uncle tom, the sellout!
Who let you out!
