THE REAL BLACK VOICE

Raheem Muhammad 1964 (Alabama)



In the beginning there was utter darkness
Then He said “Let There Be light”
There was nothing, there was emptiness
But He never said “Let There be white”
Supremacy belongs to the only One God
The best of you are the guiltless souls
Murdered by the descendants of Nimrod
The rest seems to be just rotten like mold
Out of all of it rises, an idea WILLIE LYNCH
We can get ahead and kill all the rest
Start with those Niggers, it’ll be a cinch
To hell with paradise, right here is best
That’s the sound leaving their voice
Hate, envy, murder, mayhem, tricknology
Your thoughts, actions, it’s your choice
Who’s reading this, You? Real funny
Hiding behind your eyes isn’t unseen
It shows just who you are, just as guilty(s)
We want to be able to build our dreams
To be heard, seen, experience our abilities
We don’t want none of your world anymore
Manipulating your evil into all the noise
The Mother of Harlots, better yet of Whores
For I Am A Witness, # The Real Black Voice

About this poem

Nay, We hurl the truth at falsehood so that it knocks out its brains (and defeats it); and behold, it (- the falsehood) vanishes. And you deserve to be punished (with Gehenna) for what you ascribe (to God).

Raheem Muhammad

Active Revolutionist from Chicago, by way of New Jersey, Atlanta, Birmingham, and now NOLA; dedicating his life to establish a truly independent economic system for the poor and oppressed peoples of America first. Fighting for those faces you see and don't see on the websites: THE ARK PROJECT LLC THE BEEP INC. BEEP BLACK WALL STREET BOOKS I'm Muslim, I'm Black and I'm American so I guess I have three strikes against me LOL. I'm here reaching out to those concerned about the great divides that no-one wants to address and I'm here to address them head-on (Social Injustice, Islamophobia, Systematic Oppression, etc...). I am the author of this book: "Oh, Say Can You See!?" (Secrets) & Truth Is In The Art which shows how passionate I am about what was done and what continues to be done and ignored. Poetry is as a result of my life experiences as well as my opinions. They are my studies of the scriptures while paralleling them with history along with the present day's crimes against humanity, by those that claim to govern us. Keep in mind that my love for this country is beyond measure and incomparable. However, there are principles that a person ascertains to and therefore must stand upon. more…
