    I am that she
    Making moves, undergoing spontaneous transition
    As I sway with calculated steps proudly in the soil of La Venta, Mexico
    I’m conversing with my partner in struggle, navigating before Columbus
    I am that she the Aztecs Indians envisioned each time they give offerings and praise to their creator
    I am that she that stand tall in the Gulf of Mexico
    Yes I am that she
    Take a picture and look closely at the prominent features passed on to my seeds abroad
    I am that she influencing each trade of the Mayans
    I am that she each time you look at the constellation
    I am that she building pyramids using the different rays of solar system
    I am that she in sync with time as it ticks…
    The saga continues…
    But
    I am that she rebuking barriers in my connections with the ancestors
    I am that she constantly ready for the revolution
    Revolution like “enuf of da ****** stuff”
    Overworking da mind during my rem sleep
    Conversing and tryna flex with that sista named Tubman cause
    Word on the street said she had a gun
    Yes sista Tubman had a gun so either you get down or lie down
    I am that she with Yoruba tribal marks
    I am that she with a sling of Benin vibes
    I am that she with Ashanti aura
    I am that she locked up in the Goree castle as my
    Ancestral links slowly diminished
    I am that she still transforming as I anoint lives in within my confluences
    Like Bawoni, Hotep, bless, peace unto you
    I am that she who ponders
    Cause each time I look around me
    I see Goree castles all over the states enclosing
    Us, melanin people
    As each one cries for help awaiting help from Babylon
    I am that she still reflecting on Sankofa!!!

    Bless!!!

    Yes RICH,
    I am that she flying forward with my head turned backward looking at the ancestors.
    Sankofa: It is not a taboo to go back and fetch what you have forgotten . I am that she. Bless. Thanks for the love.
