Nigger To Be Or Not To Be?

by Wanda R. Seals

Nigga is a most versatile  word
My nigga, yo nigga, what's up nigga
that nigga, my nigga............ word up nigga

What's a nigga?

Is it your partner your main friend?
the one who understands the one who comprehends
Or is it the scum of the earth
the ones with no morals no values no worth

Nigga, what's up Nigga? my nigga, get that nigga
I told you he was a nigga, Thats a nigga 
she is a nigger
Nigger is just a word the power it has is absurd
The word is just an expression
it can have many meanings it can teach many lessons
We control the method and the madness 
we cannot allow this word to
consume us or become us

Nigger is just a word
It can not make or break us
We must never forget the struggle from which the word came
But it is just a word, not our ancestral name

we must allow this word to grow
to start  new roots  
a new beginning a new life
Its just a word or haven't you heard
Nigger to be or not to be?
