Black Heroes of Yesternow (“if not us, who?”)

Ain’t even much a matter what happens tomorrow, ’cause we men, ain’t we?
–Trip (from the movie Glory)

There
Is
No time
To fake, front
Or ride the fence, when
It comes to doing the right thing.
Born in the margins of the melting pot, I’m made real

By
The
Ideal
That we are
Begotten of God–
To rise up…& be free! with faith
To move the mountains
It shall be…
But, not
‘Til
Then.
