    assata-
    faught for da cause
    @ a young age
    proved 2 b the reason
    4 their attempt to cage
    her
    behind her strength
    her presence is still rememered
    by those who choose to care
    seeing
    the beauty
    in our matyrs
    who came b4
    like assata

    assata-
    went through hell
    in her path
    2 fight
    for her seat in heaven
    accused
    abused
    convicted
    and used
    by the system
    thrown in a cell
    like
    animal to cage

    assata-
    she overcame
    overcame the white man's rage
    to escape
    being enslaved
    any longer
    by amerikkka's feiry
    livin in cuba
    wit questions
    still surroundin our battle

    assata-
    her struggle to survive
    -a massive one
    battling wit
    love,
    sex,
    money,
    & lust,
    pregnancy,
    death,
    & corruption
    yet she prevailed

    assata-
    i kno in her mind
    her heart must weep
    of never giving opportunities
    ablities to be present in her daughters memories
    but yet
    she faught for her freedom

    exiled in cuba
    and US swear they want her back
    lies,
    corruption,
    decit....
    what should she believe
    when they saying all they want is her life
    when all they really did
    was fight 4 her death

    assata-
    i am ispired
    by ur courage
    2 continu existence
    to demand ish
    and continue resiting
    4 ur fight
    ur struggle
    to combat deception
    all i want, is to be of any assitance

    hopefuly
    by knowing her story
    her struggle to survive
    i will
    yall will
    use some knowledge and ambition
    to rise
    and do wat needs to be
    to open eyes

    "we are pregnant with freedom"- assata
