    Mother Harriet Tubman Speak From De’ Soul



    Oh brow and deep black satin robe;
    Through the dark and storm cried not a word;
    The deviled consumption to be a warrior psalm;
    Through laughter and pain one stood it all;
    So why shall I cry for this numbness feared?
    For those who have beaten the devils whip
    I wake upon morning with my bag of weapons foe;
    I stand before the world defending
    the cause of my Chilean souls;

    De’ dark swampy river de’ one thee cross;
    The leashes that eat from the satin robe;
    Oh the warrior reveal the strong oh mighty cloth;
    The savior who walk side be side;
    The fire that melt the soft bronze skin;
    The bugs that laid upon my breast;
    The tears I cry for my mama rest.

    But yet I stand tall upon the land;
    I take my people to the mighty land;
    So who is fear da’ dark swampy sea?
    Fear not thy word, death at all cost
    For so the story shall be told;
    O' the Christ that walked me through
    The promise land, so who is I to cry?
    When they laid de’ Christ upon the wooded cross/
    I have seen the son of son;
    The honor to take his pain upon;
    My trust, for in life the sure thing is death
    But unto the coward lives the marksmen whip;
    For I shall cry not in the mist of my journey foe;

    Stand tall my people foe. Stand tall my people foe
    The death upon earth bring you joy
    When de’ palace bring you moa, life is death,
    Death de’ life, sing not the glory of your strife
    For every women in de’ warrior house
    Suffer unto thee said the lord.

    De’ black broths is your keepers house
    For there are weak and some are strong
    Forget not your warrior quote
    I black women the Mother Nature
    Of de’ land, look not upon your broths
    So, for without him they shall be no more,
    For the Christ pick his chosen so
    Raise the brother to the sky,

    Let not ego killed de’ nest
    Forsake not the wounded heart
    Nourish him to give him strength
    Warriors bounty come from de’ lord
    Forsake not the darken soul
    Teach the script de’ Christ lives through the womb
    For de’ mother shall feel the pain
    As she felt upon the cross;
    Warriors walk alone, seek not the earthly so.
    The warrior of de’ Tubman house shall
    Bring de’ brothers across DE’ underground.​

    makes me think on Swing Low Sweet Chariot and beyond all negro spirituals

    For me this was a master scribe and the depth and height were equally vast

    thanks for taking me there and there and there again

    Keep flowing

    Peace

    Patrice
