I surrender to the God of liberty who makes me lie down in eternal love, and the malice-infested swamps dive in my peace trying to impurify the esteem of my being. Here stands a society ready to annihilate me their guns point with rage trying to contradict my black skin into the depths of sin I am not a badge of shame. I always kept myself locked in became a fiend of my own mind suppressed in the name of slavery and injustice my roots were planted in a dry harvest. My heart is worn out, dogged up is my throat when my speech is unable to cultivate the capacity of my ethnicity. Where is the pride? Where is the peace? Stay woke, my people. We need to develop inherent worth and dignity resist conformity of the regime revive our immortal spirits and begin to breathe in the cosmic of superiority and solidarity. Black people, we are magic.
'The Beginning' is an introductory piece to a poetry project collective by Elijah which focuses on black consciousness and pride. Inspired by the Black Panther Party movement in 1966, this collective is set to bring awareness to society that black people are human too and we deserve respect. Titled BLACKACY: Black Legacy, Black Excellency , this collective will bring the sense of unity and love within the black community and we shall rise above anything because we are untouched.
