    The Lady of liberty

    The Lady of liberty
    was never for you or me?
    We never came into New York harbors
    with a dream to be free.

    We never saw the Lady of liberty
    The lady of no partiality.
    We came by way of Jamaica, New Orleans, Alabama and the West Indies.
    We never came in through Ellis islands
    With a dream to be free.

    At that time the only thing that was happening
    for Arikans were sundays hangings
    At the old cotton tree.
    Blood clots red necks laughing’ and calling it Sunday fun.
    Hanging a ****** was protested by no one.

    We never have a free hand.
    Although our blood has spilled for this land.
    Why can’t you understand?
    We were never written into this land.
    Because freedom we still have to demand.
    In a place where the Lady of liberty
    Is supposed to be?
    A symbol of opportunity in a land of the free.

    The torchbearer, she never held a light to represent the Afrikan race.
    Because there, is only darkness from our birth to our grave.
    In America . . . Afrikans are never free.
    If you don’t believe me.
    Go and check your history.
    Or better yet ask, “The Lady of Liberty.”

    very tight
    your release has fire in it
    feeling you on this
    yeah...for real
    check that history
    it is said that the model
    was black
    but they keep trying to erase that fact
    nice one
    Peace
