    As the sun rises in the east…
    so shall i rise in the west…
    i’ve had to decide…
    will i continue to reside on the ground…
    Both physically and mentally bound?
    Lying dormant…
    In the midst of anguish and torment…
    Instead of seeking what’s best?
    Uh-uh…no way…my mind’s made up today!
    No longer can anyone hold me…
    with the help of Allah…i’m upward bound…

    Watch as my Ebony Soul unfolds…
    liberates…evolves into a spirit that’s bold…
    For too long there’s been a hold on my soul…
    my mind…my mold…
    By demons…oppressors…
    dream snatchers…self-professed masters…
    That took hold…
    making me face hell everyday…
    trying to hold me down…
    Lead me astray…

    A better way there’s got to be…i’m thinking as I break free…
    Free of this chain…free of that chain…
    i wanna be free!
    Why can’t i fly?…
    Why won’t you let me fly?…
    Fly so high…
    soaring in God’s beautiful sky…
    Every single odd…anyone’s created about me…
    i’ll defy!

    It’s time…
    i close my eyes…
    i breathe in…
    i breathe out…
    i sigh…
    releasing all fear …
    all doubt…
    i spread my wings…far and wide…
    i take flight…
    Now…
    watch me fly… :)

    peace
