Listener Submission for Black History Month: History Pages

History Pages
by, Christina Singletary


Brotha Man
Brotha Man
You've lost your soul

Sista girl
Sista girl
Your beauty was stole

With whips and chains
And tortures untold
Separated from family
Just to be sold

Told what to do
And how to behave
This is your life
And you are a slave

Workers in the fields
Swarming like bees
Hoping Masta wont use
The whip with such ease

The pungent smell of death
Blowing in the breeze
Wounds open up and
The blood starts to pour

Prayin and prayin
That you can endure
Even when freed
Your spirit is still trapped
Trying to push forward and never look back

Your blackness keeps growing
By leaps and bounds
But they still find a way
To keep you down

Fast forward thru years
Ages and stages
Flip through history
And examine the pages

No longer a slave
Just poorly paid labor
Feeling troubled and lonely
Kept in your place by signs

Whites Only

No longer uneducated
And ready to fight
Lashing out against
Everything that's white

Crying out loud for the
Whole world to hear
Praying to God
They won't return a blank stare

The water is freezing
Your dog bites are bleeding
But your soul says
Just keep believing

The struggle continues

Your blackness keeps growing
By leaps and bounds
But they still find a way
To keep you down

Fast forward thru years
Ages and stages
Flip thru history
And examine the pages

It's 2013
And what do we know
The black tax
Continues to grow

Everyone's equal or
So they say
But for me it's all
Work no time for play

I have to work harder
Continue to pave the way
So future generations
Can gladly say

The struggle was hard
But well worth
The fight

Our blackness keeps growing
By leaps and bound
Now no one
Can hold us down
