My Roots

My roots symbolizes
hardship, pain and
tears sorrow.

My roots, I wear
proudly everyday
and every night with PRIDE & HONOR!

My roots of my ancestors,
that fought and fought for the FREEDOM OF TODAY,
which we still walk around with our eyes closed,
due to the lack of knowledge and understanding.

My roots, I wear proudly still to this day,
because I know and give thanks to all,
that fought for our freedom as people of color.

Being lashed like animals,
when one didn't follow a command
or move quick enough!

Being belittled constantly everyday,
just because of our color!

My roots, my roots,
I wear my roots Proudly,
because my roots symbolizes more than the eye can see,
my roots are me being a black brotha, who is viewed in many eyes as closed.
