Have We Really Overcome?

By Kendrick Smith (Khepera)


You know, as think back to the days of Martin, that’s sometimes where my mind delves

And I realize how we got integrated into the mainstream, but remained divided amongst ourselves

I see a misguided people who imitate the Romans, just for the fact that they’re living in Rome

So quick to take on everyone’s cause, but the one that concerns us, instead of cleaning up the mess in our own homes

I see very few, truly working… Continue

When Men Are Afraid of the Light

By Kendrick Smith (Khepera)


Everyone has their convictions, and with time, I‘ve come to the conclusion that there have been misdirections and misconceptions placed in our daily walk

However it’s these things that I now disavow without regret, being reminded of the story of the man traveling with his family, his wife looking back and was instantly turned into of a pillar of salt

And as always, with each piece that I write, my aim is provide complete… Continue

Success and Victory

By Kendrick Smith (Khepera)


It’s often seen that it’s hard to move forward when minds are stuck in cages

And part of progress is understanding the process of crawling before we walk, and learning how the lessons life offers, often comes in stages

Given that, I now stand with Cedars of Lebanon, I had to quit running around with fools

As I began to search for answers amongst stars in skies darker than that of the original Jews

No time to sit still, for… Continue

Sons and Daughters of Light

By Kendrick Smith


One day I got fed up with frustration from following the monotonous and mundane ways of the norm

And decided to quit chasing my tale like a perplexed pound puppy, cause it was obvious that they had a brother truly misinformed

So I began to close my ears to the serpent’s whisper of lying imams, rabbis, and pastors

Chose to walk across the dessert’s burning sands into the temple to learn how to smooth the roughened ashlars

Decided to… Continue

On the Same Page

We’ve got a lot of work to do, to get where we need to be

But when I look around, sometimes I wonder, are you on the same page as me

For material gain, the idiot box has our youth doing whatever it takes

Which is committing acts of genocide, at exponential rates

Empty entertainment has young brothers killing for colors and increasing the murder rate

And the reason they kill what looks like them, is because they’re consumed with a self-hate

Why is the ratio of… Continue

The Veil's about to Get Raised

By Kendrick Smith


Will we ever see change in this here great melting pot

Where overzealous cops salute Black men with fifty shots

Is that what is symbolized by fifty stripes and fifty stars

Where we’re still trying to heal from over fifty years of scars

When we elect this next Black president, is it a move from dusk to dawn

Where in a land they used to pic a nigger, oops, I mean picanic on the white house lawn

When Sam Cooke said a change… Continue

What Do You Practice?

Today our aim, is to retrieve spirituality, from off of the shelves

Which is a step towards conquering our lower, yet becoming one with our Higher selves

We’ll revisit some old concepts, trust me, they aren’t new

For what God placed in the universe, He put in us too

We’ll take it a step at a time, that’s what this journey will entail

For we are a microcosm of the macrocosm, just on a smaller scale

This piece is to bring clarity, but as for confusion, that of… Continue
