“Under Investigation” ??!?!!?

image

I rarely use the word *hate*….
Unless you hating
But as of late
Call me a hater
Cause there’s a term that causes me frustration
Been hearing it used loosely in every situation
So can you help me understand
What’s “under investigation”?
Who investigates the individuals doing the investigating?
Counter production if its internal station to station
How many guilty verdicts are the people still awaiting? Not even counting the low profile situations.
Not even counting the Trayvons and Emmit Till.s
I’m talking bout the ones getting gunned down eating a meal.
I’m talking bout traffic stops getting murdered at the wheel
I’m talking bout ya friend that was just walking down the hill
I’m talking bout ya hands is up and gettin murked still
So I’m really starting to hate the term
“Under investigation”
It seems as if instead of *under
They getting *over on the nation
It’s a massive disrespect slap in the face to all creation
But when it come to throwing niggas in jail, over trivial details,
seems as if they always come to quick deliberation
giving  20 year verdicts without any hesitation
Unbothered by broken homes and broken hearts and ruined lives behind these bars from the time these “niggers” facing
Where the proof at? Little dibble dabbles on discoveries
But on a video red handed these devils reap the luxuries
Of being
“Under investigation”
Under the umbrella of protection
What a disgusting reflection
of history repeating itself
Gang members doing time for drug & murder crimes
So all badges & guns should be on the shelf
How does a criminal investigate oneself?
How many verdicts are the people still awaiting?
How many conclusions came through regarding them boys in blue that got they wrist slapped and on paid vacations?
Distracted by entertainment and other non important situations
Hoping people forget by dragging it out and disrupting the demonstrations
Using militia force on people protesting for peace
Protesting for justice
2 things the law supposed to be
But unless I got it twisted look like opposition to me
Who is really
“Under investigation”?
Red rum in these streets from city to city
Red rum Red rum
We see who the killers are
Sticking out by they red thumbs
But I guess
We spose to believe and accept the okey doke
Like we dumb son.
Y’all ” under investigation”

B.L.A.C.K

image

B.L.A.C.K ( but we are Brown)
Blessed. Loving. Attributed. Creative. Kings and Queens
Beautiful. Longing. Artistic. Charismatic. Kemetic
Brown skinned gods and goddesses Ancestral Crafters
Labeled with the color of darkness
B.L.A.C.K (but we are brown)
constantly blamed for disasters
Hated and feared
Have a inherit career of mistreatment and being misled
But like iron in fire
Thorough bred molded
Publicly ridiculed murdered and scolded
Labeled with the color of darkness
B.L.A.C.K (but we are Brown)
yet filled with a blinding light
Not easily smoldered
Some of our brown siblings are ashamed of their own sight
Different arrays of brown
But take delight in your melanin
Different shades varied hues
Some have to pay for this complexion… Never be ashamed of your reflection brown family
Yet labeled B.L.A.C.K
the color of tar… Made out to seem negative by far
Everything From being
B.L.A.C.K. listed B.L.A.C.K. mailed
B.L.A.C.K balled. If its Black it must be unclean.
Yet without B.L.A.C.K skies the Stars would go unseen
B.L.A.C.K
dark and strong Like coffee beans and precious like onyx and oil
Rare Diamonds and rubies
B.L.A.C.K like little dresses and articles of clothing that can be worn with any and everything
Through wear and tear we’re everywhere
Intimidating is our skin?
B.L.A.C.K but we are Brown
The eyes are the Windows to the soul. Although some of our spirits are dim….Its hard to look straight into the souls whose inner Royalty exudes from within

Lay With Me

image

Baby it’s been a while
And Through these trials
It’s plain to see
We got each others backs
And God has guided us safely
Through the valleys …
out of darkness
I know you’ve been through some things
And nothing can express the joy that seeing your face brings. ..
Baby I miss your everything
There’s also been a change in me. ..
Peace in my mind
Peace in my soul
Come And lay with me.

Tried and true
So loyal to my king
We have some catching up to do
Some making up and things
I have so much love to give
You make my heart sing
I love to lay upon your chest
And listen to your heart beat
We gaze upon our wedding rings
This Love is soo so sweet.

Peace in your heart
Peace in your mind
Our love was put to the test
The search is over
We hit the jackpot
As we lay
We enter mutual rest
