This Oath is a Spiritual Oath that has been written in the blood of
This Oath has been written from the blood that dripped and
overflowed from slaveships,
the blood that dripped down the wound-opened backs of Blacks,
dripped down the necks strung by ropes swinging in the dull air from
dripped down the bullet holes of those who defied fear,
blood that dripped down the sacred mountains and flowed through the
dripped down every wound, gash, slash, and cut.
This Oath is the blood that dripped down
to moisten Mother Earth’s deserts, forests, and swamps.
This is an Oath in blood written by those mighty warriors
whose bodies were half-dead on the battlefields,
but whose souls had just begun to live.
This Oath we do take in their names,
We do take to continue their work of liberation,
as long as we walk and breathe upon the Earth.
We take this blood Oath so that one day the children and the unborn
will take the same Oath in our names.
We, the living, do take this Oath to give liberation and honor
to those who put themselves in harms way on the altar of freedom.
We take this Spiritual Oath to every single drop of Afrikan blood
that has flowed over the past centuries,
for every drop of Afrikan blood
that has flowed over the past several thousands of years.
In the names of our divine mothers and fathers
who chose to fight to be free or die trying,
we take this Oath to thee.
We take this Oath for every single drop of Afrikan blood
that moistened the grounds of slave dungeons,
blood that darken and soaked the wood of slaveships,
blood that dripped in the hot fields of oppression.
This Oath is smeared from the precious blood of that Afrikan man
that dripped while he was hanging on the gallows.
This Oath is smeared from the precious, precious blood of that
who was whipped and desecrated.
We take this consecrated Oath for those Afrikans who
gripped the knife,
grabbed the gun,
concealed the poison,
slashed the sword,
and were determined to be free or inflict divine justice on their
