Poem

Animation By LaDarius Dennison

Work, I love you

I put you first for dedication,
I put you in for elevation,
I put you on for inspiration,

Work, I love you

I never treated you hardly,
I never pushed you to the side when things got ugly,
I never cheated on you to be lonely,

Work, I love you

I will always go hard for you,
I will always embrace you,
I will always be one with you,

Work, I love you

Poem

Reconnect With History To Build The Future

Animation By LaDarius Dennison

If all you know is I got it out of the mud

Then you will be content with being on dry land,

You will have no aspirations to develop the land,

You will have no vision to build institutions on the land,

You will forever be a weed in a land full of trees,

Holding yourself and others back from opportunities,

So I challenge you to go back to the mud,

Dive deep, hands and feet, mix and mold the mud,

Then I want you to put the mud in a fiery oven,

And what you have crafted here is bricks by the dozen,

So when they ask how did you build your legacy out of tears, sweat, and blood,

You say I got it out of the mud
