"Birth Out Mother Earth"
by Trina Brigham A.K.A Realness

I was formed from dust and chillzed out the wound of my mother.
I'm mother's earth first born...
When her water bag broke ...
She baptized me in many bodies of waters...
She washed me in her oceans...
She showered me in crimsoned tides...
We are compatible genetically incline...
My soil is fertile i reproduce as well as multiply...
Not only did i receive my mother's blessings...
I also inherited her earthy treasures...
I birth out diamonds minerals and exotic stones out my wound...
I bleed symphonies of oils and fossil fuel...
Not only do I have evidence I'm living proof...
I help sutain life beyound measure...
I reproduce jewels as well as treasures...
I craddle civilzation man's roots are as acient as me...
The garden of Eden she lives here with me...
The first tree grown rose up out the dirt from me...
Which is why I question why are my people living in poverty?
I reproduce the highest quality of natural resources from within me...
There are more than enough to feed every part of me...
God gave me the ability to reproduce and do so abundantly...
So why must my peole parish from stavation and poverty?
My people are a choosen generation....
Their generational seeds are implanted through me....
With provision came decision ....
I have always been whole...
A whole continent ...
A whole nation...
A whole country....
A whole people...
I'm birth out of Mother Earth
I'm Africa and Africa is me!!!

The contest is an event in which at least two teams or individuals compete. There may be an award to a winner or awards for multiple top performers, but a contest may be imposed for training. A contest may occur naturally, or be planned by the participants, rather than organized by another party. Thanks.
