THE MISPRONUNCIATION OF WHO I AM

Dedicated to my social activist friend, brother and word spoken artist mentor – William Washington.

another year begins
to say what I got to say
whether perceived as valuable
or not by others
I stepped up to the plate
and stood before the crowd
TO SAY ~
THE NIGGER CHRONICLES
THE MISPRONUNCIATION
OF WHO I AM
if I strike out
I will try again
and again
failure ain’t the problem
compliance
to what’s unacceptable
now that’s not acceptable
not an option
in my reality
I walk on
without fear
hesitation
or regret. …
I’m a contributor
to the outcome of life

peace out
