Behind My Anger

Excerpt from our book “Unleashed”

Behind My Anger

Behind my anger
is the overwhelming desire
to release the hurt,
the bitterness,
the resentment,
the shame
and the pain that I feel deep inside
I’ve been mad for a long time!
Years of anger all built up inside….
the lingering effects of slavery.

Behind my anger
is a strong determination
to release
what I am
feeling in a positive way
so that I can bring forth…
a positive change.
If I can change my perspective
I can change my life!

Behind my anger is an eagerness,
a willingness
to educate my children
my family
my friends
even my enemies….
about the lingering effects of slavery

Behind my anger
is a list of generational curses
that must be broken
but how can they be broken,
if they aren’t being exposed?
My people are perishing
for lack of knowledge!

Behind my anger,
I see the big ships
that enslaved my ancestors!
Naked, hungry,
I see them in the spirit….
strong, they were very strong.

Behind my anger
I see the plantation
where our African American Men,
were programmed to drop
seed into his African American Queen,
than leave without bonding with his bride or his children!

Behind my anger,
I see that big strong buck being sent to another plantation,
to drop more seeds,
to leave yet another
African American Queen.

Behind my anger,
I see children growing up in a single household
because Massa Tom dun turned daddy into a rolling stone
Rolling, rolling don’t know where he is going…
daddy was rolling.

Behind my anger,
I see the lie, (deception perfected)

and I’m exposing the works of the enemy.
satan I am going to tear your
kingdom down in Jesus name!
satan I am going to pray
your kingdom down in Jesus name!

Behind my anger,
I see hope!

Behind my anger,
I see the African American Queens
rising up in the spirit.
They are praying for their African American Kings
just like our ancestors did
when they transferred them
to another plantation!

Rise up my African American sisters…
rise up….
our African American Kings
need us to be strong!
Don’t give up!
Don’t give in!
Don’t shut up
Don’t back up!
Move forward and beyond!

Behind my anger,
I see the Lord answering our prayers!

Behind my anger,
I see restoration!
Behind my anger,
I see African American Kings
returning home!
I see broken homes
becoming whole…
all because his African American Queen
rose up in the spirit and prayed.

Will you join me?
