    My soul is connected so deep in this earth.
    That when it is damaged my soul hurts.

    The pain runs so deep.

    My soul is straddled across the seven seas,
    my ancestors died in the waters you see.

    It hurts the pain it hurts.

    You walk across the head of me,
    when you walk across this land.
    My ancestors are buried every where.

    It hurts how deep it hurts.

    I know that is my confusion.
    I know what is my pain.
    But I can’t run nor can I hide.
    The pain comes down like rain.

    My soul.
    I must.
    Set it free.

    I will try until I die.
    If I give up what
    was my soul worth.
    It is the world to me.

    Thank You Wisdom. Our people are connected to this earth. So were the Native Americans. But the Native Americans saw and recognized vision in the future of man, they were not held close enough to the flame of evil doers like we were, only suffered their wrath. We suffered, stood near and experienced the depths so we can pull the world out of its turmoil.

    One brush stroke, second brush stroke.. its done. We see the reality of unity and we bring love because Africa gave the world love and those who are in power must crush love for love fixes, creates and makes things that were not there before appear and happen.

    If we ever combine it we can get things done. No one else has the soul and flesh touch because they haven't tended the earth like we did.
