ROLE MODEL

 


He grew up not knowing who he is
No father to look to, not there to turn to
A major part of his life missing
Only flash backs in his head to cling to
An ache in his heart he doesnít know how to fill
Needs a positive male figure to guide him right
His mother is doing the best she can
But only a man can teach him to be a man
Who but a strong black man
Can help him with the tribulations
Of being a black boy in this society
Educate his young mind to be strong
And not be lead astray
To stop him falling in to the traps that lay ahead
Help him stay on the right line
To educate his young mind
Because education is the key
A step up to be what he wants to be
Not just a stereotype in societies mind
Falling in to traps of jail or gun crime
The strong black men of our community
Needs to teach black youths
The most POWERFUL thing they can be
Is to be mentally free
