March Forward, Ever On

by Bro. Larry X.

peep into your future
try to see what lies ahead
do you picture pleasantries?
or days that are filled with dread?
look into your past
see how things came to be
see your peoples travels
before and after slavery
then go do the math
but stay rooted in reality
comprehend your true position
in this present society
are you really what they call
a traditional american?
or are you just displaced
from roots that are African?
on your peoples backs
is how this wealth amassed
for this "country tis of thee"
based on race and class
now look inside yourself
and escape the fantasy
bond with your own kind
to grasp the reins of destiny
recognize the darkness
but anxiously await the dawn
determine in your heart
to march forward, ever on.
the past has determined the present.
what you/we do in the present
will determine your/our future.
