Are You Ready

by B.T. Bonner and Trina Williams-Emigh

Are you Ready
to receive
the enlightenment of my flow?
Do you desire
for your mind
to broaden
and grow?

Abandon the notion
of an adverse affect
I offer only the privilege
to circumspect
to continue
the expansion
of ancestral pride
With determination
I fight
so the legacy
won't be pushed aside

Are you Ready
to step along
with the significance
of my stride?
For the pace I've set
will only have you
walking with pride

Can you conceive
a brave new world
draping African Flags
from white house poles?
Black Kings and Queens

Are you Ready
to find out the true story
that will
satisfy your curiosity
Black History
and fill
the gaps in His-story?

Are you Ready
to feel
Black Pride
down on your face
on the dawn
of the day
of the Revolution?

Are you Ready?
