eternal slaves

"black history; slavery blinding bravery. bold acts weakened and told of, as a mind of the uncertain; wavery. catering to the tongue of fear, second steps that require a guiding footprint. or spine. the mind to think in vines rather than an elongated span. gaps planted in a memory that only knows servitude as its original stride."

all communities have reference points that they utilize for the sole purpose of unifying its people. i know my people are warriors. if there ever was a slave in my bloodline they were never my founding.
if you begin your history with slavery, your freedom is manufactured. how close are you, then, to your natural state, Mr Kunta Smith?!

'my history is green'
