It was all for nothing! (Prelude)

In Knowledge, Poetry, Truth, Wisdom by Cliff Green

Mr. King, did you really have a dream?

“Yeah, but it was all for nothing!”

Mr. X, did you really want freedom by any means?

“Yeah, but it was all for nothing!”

The premise of this poem will be to convey that we as a people in this day and age have let our ancestors down. With all the greats that have come before us, we still live and act as if they didn’t pave a better way for us.¬†We can not say that we know who these people are then not live accordingly. It is disrespectful! My purpose is to bring back their message and pay homage to the gods that came before us.

This poem is far from finished. I have a lot of studying to do before I can put the complete piece out, but I can use your help. In the comment section, please name some of our great and powerful ancestors and what they were known for. I will implement as many of them as I can to make this message hit home.

Actions speak louder than words. Let’s show our ancestors¬†that they did not live and die in vain.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the final piece!
