ALL HOLY THANKS AND PRAISE TO ALLAH!!!
I DIDN’T HAVE TO SPEND THE NIGHT OUTSIDE!!!
I went to the Union and they took my bed ticket AGAIN! That’s four times in less than two weeks!
So. Our teacher and leader and guide, The Honourable Elijah Muhammad (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah Forever Be Upon Him) Taught us that if someone doesn’t want you there, find somewhere else to go.
So, since they keep taking my bed ticket, I figured they really don’t want me there.
So, I tried to get in another shelter. But, they didn’t want me there either. So, I found a place outside, but I really didn’t want to sleep outside. So, I went back to the U, and got in.
I slept in a different place.
I’ve been in the chapel so far.
I like it because it’s a chapel and it made me feel close to ALLAH.
But Allah is everywhere I am. So, I was cool in the new place.
They threw me out this morning.
ALLAH HAS BLESSED
Me With a BEAUTIFUL SINGING VOICE.
Whenever I’m out in the cold
It makes me feel better.
It reminds me of our poor ancestors who used to sing to make themselves feel better.
“FOLLOW THE DRINKING GOURD”
was a code worded song slaves used to use to alert other slaves on how to successfully attain their FREEDOM.
“The Drinking Gourd” was the Big Dipper.
“The River” was the Mississippi.
I think “Dead Trees” means dead bodies. 😥 😥 😥
They used to sing them like Negro Spirituals.
Most people don’t listen to lyrics in songs.
So, we could deliver secret messages and the slavemasters and overseers would not be privy to what was going on right under their racist noses.
I remember my daughter used to make up songs and sing them when she couldn’t tell me how she felt.
Music is a wonderful form of expression
