    Lead on Black man
    take us through the journeys you've been thru
    literally and figuratively let all see every leg
    of the trek creating the man that is you
    Lead on Black man
    where understanding is not the fashion
    more hip to look out for self
    than to feel what's real in compassion
    Lead on Black man
    Give us a glimpse of each battle scar
    Reveal where they are
    and why they still may remain raw
    from each slice of injustice you saw
    Lead on Black Man
    Speak on about unity
    and why it's more important
    than individuality
    Not to say we don't each have a voice
    But we usually have that choice
    to agree to disagree,
    don't we?
    If we had more than
    an inkling or two
    about what created the man
    that is...you
    Mouths would be agape
    Totally astounded
    at all the gut wrenching pain
    yet, you remain grounded
    firm in the belief that
    no matter come what may
    we'll be in unison
    and you'll guide the way
    Lead on Black Man
    As much as I have loved you yesterday
    I'll love you even more today
    And continue into the morrow
    throughout life's joy
    and yes, all the sorrow
    Lead on Black Man

    Lead on black man
    as he make a stand
    not through selflessly plan
    but from which he can
    lead on black man
    to open unity to unite
    speak on truth and rights
    carry thy brothers into da light
    lead on black man
    beyond all reverse and it's curse
    to bond join one universe
    talk about battles and worse
    lead on black man

    Oldsoul? Hey there brotha. Yes, brothers who can lead by word and by deed, what a wonderful breed. Thank you ever so much.
