We say there is a beast,

   a beast out there

Yet when we look up,

   we see who that beast is

The beast is our black man,

   our brothahs of the present, here, and now

He is a beast because he is

   searching and striving for more

He is a beast because he wants his

   family to learn and grow

Image

He is a beast because he loves himself

   and gives his people support and honor

He is a beast because he is strong

   and succeeds in his goals set for his life

He is a beast because he must continue to beat down

   and one day knock down the walls of freedom

Black men are not beasts!

Black men are survivors!

Black men are carriers!

Black men are a black woman’s love!

I Love You Black Man!!!…PEACE!
