    I'll not tell you it will be a easy task
    For this you will have to take off the mask
    Jump in with both feet without fear of crash
    For I seek to elevate you above the trash

    They say if you teach a man to fish
    He'll never hunger for another dish
    But I say to you move beyond that role
    And own the fishing pond as a whole

    For it is the man that owns the pie
    Who deems whether you eat or die
    For he grants the access to you
    And determines what is your due

    So before you say you are ready for freedom
    Tell me are you ready to build an entire kingdom
    Or are you content fishing in someone else’s lake
    Pretending that you like your little slice of cake

    I am ready to build thy kingdom
    in hope for my long due freedom
    the lake or pond i will own
    to bring all my people home
    that piece of cake not enough
    for i want it whole as if it was gold
    reaching out !

    Truly it is not enough to teach a man to fish nowadays--but it is a start-the hardest part is finding someone willing to teach, someone not afraid of sharing what they know with their people for fear someone might pass them by--unity it such a simple concept--but so difficult to acheive especially in a "me based" culture--Amun-Ra
