Black Peace And Freedom


What imani means to me is the pride of justice
To which imani needs to be,
In which I seek freedom, the freedom to be, to walk, and speak,
Compelled to believe that it seems a reality,

In truth imani and the free in this earth kingdom
Is all make-believe,
Hoping to relax the rapture in the redemption of the lost,
A retrospect of our black tribes that once stood strong
And proud for us all,

We are in need, I am in need,
Self-determination and self-proclamation to rise where we so fall,
With freedom and imani we as people will overcome all.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
