I am a prisoner of light I have not choice but to stand and fight For I am a prisoner of light! Dear God I am the child of a generation who gave free love Planted in the springtime of yesterday Birthed on blood soaked battlefields Glistening with fallen tears and forgotten souls I scream through the fog of smoke Left from long hot summers of cities burning across the nation I scream for a name! I am the nameless child of a generation that clapped thunder Flashed lightening with eyes of rebellion I am the wildflower of free love Give me a name! But through streams of heroine and crack cocaine in your veins You do not recognize me I am the mirror reflection of your soul You were my mother, you were my father Before you abandoned your cause Leaving me in the aftershock of your sonic boom To become consumed in darkness Blueprints of destruction genetically encoded Through the transfusion of your spirit into mine Without you Mother Queen and Father King To translate your messages of revolution My soul revolved in confusion When I gave birth it was to a twisted delusion I lost your fire and gained Eve’s bane The mark set upon me like the descendants of Cain My third eye blind with carnality Rebirthed into this Earth reality To stand upon fallen foundations Is this the legacy you left for my generation? May I never forgive you for leaving me May I never forgive you for this wretched legacy May I never forgive you! I am a prisoner of light I have no choice but to stand a fight For I am a prisoner of light Dear God I am afflicted with visions in the night I fear this Inner Light The gospel of your truth burns in my spirit But ears are too deaf to hear it How could I be the voice of a generation? Who is nameless and faceless within its own nation Upon our birth self worth terminates Condemnation abominates and concentrates On murdering our souls Before fetuses can become whole Society stamped and X on Black mother’s wombs As they lamented for our impending doom Entering the world we are already mourned Cradles and caskets adorned For we are marked lost Preconceived Holocaust I will not stand for the further demise of my youth Nor hold back the tidal wave of truth For the falsehood of hypocrites Or tight lipped Devil’s advocates I am not the misbegotten My name is one that shall not be forgotten Cause as I stand this very day and recant your vicious plethora of lies I draw on the strength of my ancestors to rise I reject your deposits of deceptions Replacing them with these weapons Truth, Knowledge, and Freedom As for your proclamations of false representations I don’t need them For I am crafted in the image of the true God Prepped and shod For anything your evil mind can contrive But this will never break my stride to strive For a complete change of paradigm Detonating a 360 degree rotation of the mind Called Revolution Thus executing Evolution Producing the ultimate Soul-ution Detoxification of cerebral hemispheres Counteracting years and years of Negative ramifications Due to social frustration Castration Denigration We denounce the fallacies of this nation I shall fulfill my soul obligation…. For I am a prisoner of light I have no choice but to stand and fight To illuminate the night With every word I speak and write To edify the mind of man To encourage my people to stand In the face of adversity To inspire the oppressed to be free This gift is my life I am a prisoner of light!
