A Word To An Affrican....American....Kid


the battery of the
song

'Racism....what is up man....racism


slavery...man.... segregation..'


wont hold...
it is dying....out....
and we do not sell
and make
these type of old stuff batteries....
anymore.


your only two exits....are:
first,

to travel to Africa from any direction.....
and don't ask me how...when....and where to have the money for the adventure ....just take a back bag and go....


your second exit....
i mean your real... future....
not African future....

not african american furture....

is to know how respond to any condition without filtering or stereotype...

cause we are all slaves....to our conditions, denials, and our setbacks....

so,

please kid,
plan to go once in your life...to north pole, south pole...Alaska....
go to China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Asia, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, New guinea....New America, new places, new planet....just stop the old stuff...stop the denial and setbacks

and try only to explore....

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
