    THE ESSENCE OF MAN

    What is it in you I see
    Could it be the essence of man becoming a reality

    In your voice what is it I hear
    Resembling the potency of the african spear
    That simultaneously intrigues me
    But causes the ghost of man to fear

    Those eyes they hold the pain you once knew
    When they sailed you across the ocean blue
    They took you from your native land
    And put you in the rich mans hand

    Your soul cries out unto the lord
    Seeking to find your just reward
    Your fight for the right to be young and free
    Has placed a threat on this mans society

    It's the heart of you he can’t understand
    Why you long to live as equals
    And stand tall as black men
