    Freedom Enterprise

    I’ve started a new business
    Called the freedom enterprise
    Our motto is…
    We rise, We rise
    We came from the bottom
    To reach for the skies
    We spread the truth amidst all the lies

    I’ve started this business
    For the young and the old
    To warm up those
    Who are spiritually cold
    We spread our message
    Through a God blessed prose
    To shine the light
    Through the darkness below.


    The complexity of this fight
    Cannot be measured
    cause we’ve lost the treasure
    of being together
    So we’ve taken it to ourselves
    To destroy the vendetta
    Of tearing our race...
    Then we can get better

    It’s a universal legacy
    That will unwind
    It will be heard by the deaf
    And seen by the blind
    We’ll think less with our money
    And more with our minds
    We’ll take back our lost strength
    We thought to not find

    It will include the story that has hardly been told
    When freedom is really free
    And no longer sold
    What I mean is…
    No longer politically controlled
    No more takin our dignity
    And leavin us “gold”

    I've started this business
    The freedom enterprise
    To bring back our freedom
    To take back our prize
    So we can all shine
    Bright souls through our eyes
    Let us be the truth
    And dismiss the lies.

    thank yall for the support
    it's comforting my work is getting somewhere
    besides im an open book
    and since i have signed to this website
    and read other works
    i have come to think much more differently and elaborately
    what i mean is thinking of concrete ways to actually satisfy the need for true hunger
    peace out
