Slavery still exist in america. We as black people are slaves to society, victims of a white man’s ego and grip. Old slaves were killed for reading and the new slaves wouldn’t read if it killed them. This is an example of how mentally malnourished we’ve become. I look out upon my fellow slaves I seen chains. The chains I speak of are not easily seen, but nonetheless they are physically and mentally defeating.
I went to see a man in prison and gave him these words
Invisible man who do you think you are? I mean your invisible as you lie behind bars, a cage placed on you by society. Trapped you crumble under the man’s foot. I stand watch as you try to satisfy that undying hunger to break free, reaching out for equality and peace, but at last you just get beat. Torn and ripped from your family; mother, daughter, & wife, now they have to fight. Fighting for a cause that will never sadly end. You see Mr. Invisible the world we live in is an unholy place, and that is why the caged bird sings. We live in a world where people get strung up and shot down, because of pigmentation. You say you pray, but as James said faith without works is dead, so stand up and fight for your freedom and loved ones. The mind is a battlefield, the enemies have crossed all lines, now is the time to stand up and fight back. Get right with yourself, being that you have been given all the time of the world, this is the first step to justice in our forsaken world. You see they want us to be blind, fin for yourself without thinking of others, our others we must show them the way. They see you behind bars with open wounds and scars, so they seek revenge upon the hands that put you in. Others also go out and further corrupt wars destroying their homes and city streets, thinking that its equivalent with true defeat. We must stop this, out down our guns and take off our chains before we continue to end up in this God forsaken cage. Be open minded to what I say, because these words are unspoken among society today. If change does not come, your inevitable future and your childs will be behind these bars. Until the wrath of God heals our broke society we must fight in this world to be freed.
Being a slave is a lifestyle, some choose to live this way others fight to overcome. The issue of renewed slavery, is that welfare is rising, because it’s the government’s responsibility to keep chains on the oppressed people of our nation. It is our responsibility to know how to take a stand and fight for a free life. Being able to discern how to help and not hinder the lifestyle of the enslaved is a role both sides must seek to make a change.
#We are not free until we are all freed
