    Every minute of every hour the status quo and
    bougies be trying to take away my power.
    With hypocritical praise upon my head they shower.
    It's getting thicker by the hour.
    Put my boots on cause I am going in deep water.
    If you haven't taken back your power then ya oughta...

    Him with the purse strings and strings attached to
    every so called benevolent act....what they really
    need to do is clear the track...Cause I am taking
    my power back.
    Open doors, see glass ceilings and moving floors.
    Standing on shaky ground, listening to words
    but hearing not a sound.

    I am taking back my power by the second, by the
    minute , by the hour...This is one independent soul
    that the status quo won't devour.
    See my eyes are wide open, and my back has steely
    reserve and determination. This is one of those
    delicate situation, I do love my nation.
    But, this bullshyt, I don't get....

    Now, our sister's and brother's are joining the throng
    with a Kenny Roger, Glenn Campbell, Garth Brookes
    sing along. Shuffle on House nikka, I got nothing
    but time, you can give away yours but I am keeping
    mine.
    Taking back my power, getting stronger by the hour.
    No, I shall not abuse my power, on my fellowman
    blessings I will shower. You can say what you want
    and do as please. Power comes from stayin on ya
    knees!

    Re: "Power comes from stayin on ya"

    [QUOTE The power I speak of is the spiritual power one gains through prayer. Now any other connotations that are derived
    are the machinations of the interpreter!
    I say what I mean and mean what I say!
