When

by china~doll

My brown skin brotha
When will you realize
That you have resorted back to those bloodshed days of our ancestors
Yet now it’s not that pale skin brotha
But yet you the brown skin brotha doing each other into that 6 ft under
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
That’s what we hear other than that oh Negro spiritual
What has happened to the days where we stand together???
Back in the days where we build each other up not tear each other down
History repeats its self but this history need not because the struggle is still here
Why don’t you open your eyes and see that this life you lead is nothing more than the past that has now turned into the future of futures
Stand still and see
Breathe and see
Live and see
Open your eyes, ears, and souls
My brown skin brotha
