    Out deep
    when the ship sails
    the sea of hell & slavery
    i lay flat on the floor
    for when the whip lashed
    to my back and the shackles
    cling to thy feet
    da blood clot skin turn
    black blue
    stolen mind, sold to
    massa taken from da
    motherland of africa
    to ameri-can
    back in the insane world
    the blood runs
    sailing on no reasons
    yet through seasons
    the ashes that sleeps
    on buoyant ship
    make me weep
    some call it da plague
    of black death
    others call it watermark
    of slavery unjustice
    my last breath i take
    into da wisdom & knowledge
    from the freedom camp
    where our forfathers &
    ancestors rivaled, died in
    17 & 1800's for our live today
    a battle of struggle aboard
    the poison ship of death
    it still sails the seas
    like a disease of fate
    no cure until we open our
    minds and fly free
    allow da soul to feel thy
    spirit and the chains release
    thy feet the lash heals
    broken promises mends
    da water relax the storm ends
    darkness become light
    off da ship of destruction
    been 400 plus years and i
    still feel the pain claiming my
    soul but my mind is free and
    never be in captivity never.

    A free mind is a blessing to have. Riveting descriptions, difficult to think of, yet we must to appreciate all that have suffered and died before us.

    Everything that I read or see about those who came before me, makes me feel deeply and brings tears to form. This was strong Brother Rich and powerful as well.
