    Fabrications of one’s imaginations start with talks of the emancipation
    In which the gate was opened granting all access
    Or so it seemed but even to acquire the desire for basics seemed like a dream
    The wings clipped off the angels unable to fly or touch the sky
    Held down by the devil in humans
    And in return thou were oppressed
    Questions of one’s foundation and intellect have led to neglect
    Of the beauty in our souls somewhere these angels still are among the pits
    But dashing faster than roadrunner are their dreams which don't seem to last
    No dream catcher to save an abomination of people
    Or so we thought
    Until leaders among men brought forth the utopia vision
    Of a African American born again
    Yes MLK and Barack came when all hope was shot
    Along with Malcolm X among others
    But even with a picture of the utopia in our heads
    Scars remain from the past when we as people were brain-dead
    But out the darkness shines the light as the revelation has spoken to survivors
    Who start the process of rebuilding in the hearts n minds of future soldiers
    Who shall fight the war until it’s over
    The podium stands for the man brave enough to take the challenge on
    But futal minds tend fall back into Stone Age thinking
    Content in mediocrity the untouchables of society
    For fear is in their heart to leap can't fathom not touching the other side
    But you'll never make it if you never Dare to envision It
