    I'm not understanding you
    When did you change
    Once a river of love flowed from you
    I and drank from you rivers as the sun smile
    on my aura
    giving the glow of true family existance
    and I was content
    but now
    the river has dried
    the love is forgotten
    and the sun shines no more
    the words you spoke
    were a foundation
    crumbled by the tide of hard times
    the peaceful sun gathering leaves of your emotion
    blown away by the winds of finance and future ambitions
    the song you sang for me
    now the same song
    sung for anothers ears
    the respect that was mine is now his
    But even though you build your fortress to keep me forgotten
    Though you have cast my memory to ever walk as shadows on the wall in your domaine
    I live
    in the faces of our seeds
    I live
    In the understanding that they know who I am
    I live
    In the fact that cannot be denied
    Father is my name
    And I will return to my rightful status
    Without my queen I will still be respected
    Yet for the life of me
    I do not understand why I must war with my own
    let my unseen tears fall in the palm of my God
    and My battle cry be heard
    in all corners of the earth
    "FOR TRUTH AND LIFE"
    all I want is whats mine
    I come for the love of my children!
    nothing more!
