malcolm x is my hero
he’s the messiah to me.
he resurrected my consciousness
and gave me eyes to see.
how america systematic oppression
prevented my people’s progression
and many other things i never learned in my history lessons.
malcolm was ahead of his time
and changed so many lives besides mines.
he loves his people so much he put his life on the line.
fighting for the black liberation
of future generations.
gives me the obligation
to pick up his torch until we see the manifestation.
tho i disagree with his religion,
i respect his decision.
to choose a god that he felt would help him
fulfill his life’s mission.
religion deceives us all
and malcolm x was no exception.
but to me he was still the greatest
black leader we’ve had, without question.
A salute to one our greatest ancestors, in honor of Malcolm X Day!
