The Soul of a Man

by Amina Asha 3x


The soul of a man is not in his penis
traveling beyond  Serena and Venus
Itís the quickening charge of his wisdom
turning someoneís low energy into speed
in the formality that he brings, putting you at ease.
The soul of a man is strengthened each new day
as he grips on challenges, compelled by  voices of hope.
The soul of a man is in his thinking,
pulling his brother up who slugs from dope
The soul of a man is not on hips and 3 dimensional body frames
The soul of a man is not in a basketball game
Although Michael Jordan shows no shame
to the rims that he has become so acquainted with.
The soul of a man is not in fame.
The soul of a man is he who speaks not out of the desire of lust
But from the desire of awakening empty souls
that havenít yet been touched.. with truth
The soul of a man is not in Babe Ruth
The soul of a man is in his continuing impulse of not giving up
And reshaping the world that has been badly corrupt 
The soul of a man is not what he preaches,
but what he teaches in those he reaches
The soul of a man is not caught up in applauds 
But rather raising men into Gods,
The soul of a man is one who crosses over deserts,
and keeps on moving regardless of the quicksand, 
And thatís my definition of the soul of my black manÖ
