where do we go from here?

the roots have been removed.
prohibiting growth.
we cannot rise without foundation,
the sacred tree which held our ancestry
has been forsaken.

we have no identity.
can't we see
they have taken everything?
our customs,
our culture.
and molded us to fit
the criteria of american civilization.
where they only accept us if we
service or entertain them .

the african american was created
by the oppressor.
taught to worship money
trained to be submissive ,
the first thing we learn is that
we are inferior.
& so begins the genesis of
a lost people.
too hopeless to uplift our own,
too distracted by
yet another iphone app,
to ever come to
recognize the flaws
in the establishment.

where do we go from now?
