    Why can't i just be me
    Fightin' for the love of
    MY country

    AFRIKA is
    MY HOME

    knowledge of culture and roots
    filling my dome

    S
    P
    I
    L
    L
    I
    N
    G

    into my system of living
    ~V i s u a l~

    pain inflicting
    ~E m o t i o n a l~

    struggling to forgive
    ~S p i r i t u a l~

    love
    life

    souls lost it's...
    high time you pay the cost

    Call me MILITANT??? No but check it...
    I ain't IGNORANT

    time wasted
    spent in quiet
    NOW...

    it's time to vent

    $$, government and poli~tricks
    your main concern
    Human compassion and spirituality's what
    you need to learn

    Know you
    CAN discern
    right from wrong
    yet...
    con...tinue to
    do wrong

    30 and 3/4 years in the midst of
    this so called
    American Feast of FREE?
    yet...

    headed for D o O M

    finally runnin' my *** out the

    belly of this beast!
