    Take...these broken wings
    So that I may fly again and disappear

    So that I may fly....
    Over the years of oppression and the splinters of the cross that I carry
    Not just for me but for this generation and for our babies

    Everytime I rise I seem to fall because my wings are broken from all the weight and all in all
    I believe that my wings were broken since day one
    When I was born as your daughter and as your son

    I'm the new generation of strange fruit from the south
    I wonder and think about am I truly what this world is after
    And endangered species with bars and a cage

    And like a starved wild animal I'm enraged
    I can't feed...

    I can't feed my mental stimulation because mental stimulation should not be a part of my vocabulary

    I can't feed...
    Spiritually
    Because that spirituality that used to engulf me like a flame is gone and all I have now is empty space

    I'm endangered because...my wings are broken, there no longer a part of me
    If Heaven was a mile away I wouldn't believe it because of the cynicism that runs through my veins

    So someone.....take these broken wings
    Make them strong again so I can disappear
    So I can fly....and leave this eagle among chickens mentality
    Because that's not me unless I'm eating those chickens extra crispy or honey BBQ from KFC...

    These broken wings...are not just mine
    There symbolic of the pride that left our side....
