Locks

Lock up your thoughts, lock up your reachable dreams, and take you far away from your family and queen…

Prison is always beckoning…Prison of the Mind, of the flesh of the spirit…

Black Man...Prison, confinement, Amerika WANTS YOU BLACK MAN…

Prison were designed to do more than just contain you; they were built to re-enslave you…

Run from the shackles Black Man… Run from the shackles…

Prison is Big Business and if those prison walls could speak about the Trials of Men inside these penal colonies you would weep.

You would become angry, show signs of disbelief because men are not supposed to be treated like beast…

Run from the shackles Black Man…Run from the shackles…

There are organizations and groups whose sole purpose is to make sure your manhood doesn’t stay surface.

Inform our young men what awaits behind those prison gates…

Tell them about Mr. Shank, Mr. Rape and Mr. Racism and his crew, lying in wait to dehumanize them.

Tell them how the prison population is filled with angry men and boys, who took a chance, had a chance, to do something positive with their life, and things didn’t turn out right…

Tell them about the guilty and the innocent, the young and the old, the strong and the weak all caged together, Fighting off around the clock agony…

Run as fast as you can from the hands that seek to shackle your dreams, shackle your flesh, shackle your mind, and lock up your soul.

Free your mind…Break the mental chains and beware of the Keepers of the Slavery Seeds…

Run from the shackles ! Run from the Shackles!
