    I am the revolution
    The fights within me
    This battles never ending
    I won’t be what they want me to be
    I won’t downplay it and sugar coat my words
    Won’t make it acceptable and “pleasing” to be heard
    I won’t be soft and sweet with the house n)gga mentality
    Won’t take their lies and stay blind to white supremacy
    “Their” welfare system
    “Their” education system
    “Their” legal system
    Doesn’t benefit me
    In turn tries to hold me down indefinitely
    I am the revolution the revolution is in me
    I knew my Son had to become the revolution
    As he grew inside me
    Knowing what he’d face as he becomes a man
    Educating his mind in the truth
    The power he holds being a Black man
    I’m the revolution
    You’re the revolution
    He’s the revolution
    She’s the revolution
    Until this you understand
    We will remain on the bottom as sits the Black Man

    Yes I feel you on this drop
    the self within knows the lie's
    that are on the outside
    and to keep the focus
    is the goal
    staying focus
    and aware
    keep the flow coming
    much love
    Peace
