    I live in the mother land....watching...listening...praying
    A genocide has just turned the corner and it's smoke is still up
    the air.
    I watch my people-dead I smell my people as they return to the
    earth.
    I wish I could have a satellite television to watch the events as they unfold.....America in shambles...never!
    I believe the invincible has just been bust....but I don't care...my stomach is empty my mind is....is half filled with the education western civilazation keeps on promising us as soon as we finish this job of making this and that or the other raw material for the next trans-national about to take the world by storm..

    I live in the motherland....watching...rationalising...and somewhat engaged.
    engaged in thought of what they mean by these new words they use for the first time against the other and not themselves.

    I am engaged in thought of the plight of my people in the scheme of things....I am engaged in serious thought...
    watching....listening and praying that they would stop saying it' s the worst thing that's ever happened in the history of man...my stomach is empty...my mind is half filled with thoughts they've never even thought possibly in a hungry man's mind.

    Still hunger pains
    Response in chains of thoughts captured of pictures
    Trapped in a mind
    Warring spirits terrorize the soul
    Leaving the depth bottomless
    Unable to feel
    Subtle taste of defeat
    Still anger stains the wage of death
    DNA turns the life around the grave
    To signature it's cries
    Still the blood tells of the atrocities of city life
    Innocent blood shed
    Still if I must die
    for my country in her arms I lay to rest
    Rocking me till heaven call my spirits to the skies
    Still I can hear it
    I sing peace to you Africa
    I sing freedom to you mother
    I sing honor and dignity
    Please rejoice through your pain
    Can not kill ya spirits
    They could not kill cries
    I hear it
    Sweet Africa
    cradling you back to life
    As you wept for mercy
    The tears replenished the souls of the spirit
    Old ones wise
    Gather round for a blessing rich ebony
    Call out till ya hearts cries thunder
    Stand up mourning the wrong
    Let the saddness abandon you
    Wearing your strength
    Releasing the history in stage
    REALEASE your song
    REALEASE your praise
    STAND UP JUMPING
    JUMPING
    JUMPING
    JUMPING
    STAND UP!
    STAND UP!
    STAND UP!
    Dance

    Dance
    Trapped in a stance spiritual warfare alibi
    Dance

    Dance
    Move the earth till it shakes under your feet
    Dance

    Dance
    Interceed
    TILL TROUBLES LEAVE YOU
    TILL ANGER RAGE
    TILL DESTINY AWAIT
    TILL FREEDOM SPEAKS
    LET MY SOUL BE FREE
    AND REJOICE
    LET MY SOUL NOT QUESTION
    THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC, AND JACOB
    LET MY SOUL NOT COMPROMISE MY MAKEUP
    LET MY SPIRIT WAKE UP
    HEAVEN EYES
    SPEAK TO THE GRAVE OF YA HEART AND DREAMS
    SPEAK TO THE LIFELESS SPIRIT
    SPEAK LIFE
    SPEAK LIFE
    SPEAK LIFE
    SPEAK LIFE

    SPEAK

    LIFE

    THAT THE SPIRTS MAY OBEY

    SILENCE THE CRITICS

    MAKE THEM BEHAVE

    Tell ya story
    Tell ya story
    Story see
    Sing
    Shout
    Clap
    Ya
    HANDS
    FOR YOU AFRICA I WEEP
    I PRESS MY HANDS OUTS TO YOURS AND CLENCH MY FISTS WITH YOURS
    WHEN I CAN BE STRONG
    I'LL ENDURE FOR YOUR HOLD ON!
    I SPEAK COMFORT AFRICA
    I SPEAK COMFORT AFRICA
    I SPEAK
    LET YA SONG SING LOUDER THROUGH DEMENSIONS AND SPHERES
    LET YA SOUL TAKE DOMINION
    CAPTURING YOUR ENEMIES EARS
    Let the soul relelase it's power
    Till freedom speaks
    One can not kill it's power
    It's one drumming BEAT
    Hear our cries for Mercy
    Spirit arise in triumphant victory
    Spirits resurrect from hopeless despair
    LOUDLY
    COMMAND!
    COMMAND!
    COMMAND!
    YOUR MIND
    LIVE ON CONQUERING THE FEAR
    LEAVING IT BEHIND....

    THANKS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL READ
    DESERT STORM
