    I the women
    many have tried to take away my right
    in my back still engraved is the knife
    but my fondation is strong
    My feet I plant in my fathers arms
    I the women
    my hands considered soft to ones touch
    when they torn down my house
    I built it back up
    my tears my blood ran deep in the nile
    my children some dead , some still around
    my struggles are not in vain
    rise up my children call out GODS name
    he will guide you to your rightful place
    I the women
    pass my essence on to you
    the spine in my back tilts and rattles from bruises
    I come in the spirit of my mother's mother before me
    my journey has been long my eyes and feet bleeds
    but my love for you will never leave
    I the women
    still many want me dead
    But I reign with my father in my heart and Jesus in my head
    I the women
    Ashanta!
    Beautiful inspiring piece! I feel your strength embracing me.

    Echos of the night, I women, I light, I womb, I the pure at heart, The softness of the beckoning calls of justice to self. The twisted pain of evolution, the cries of unity, embracing the senses of dignity, the cardboard box, 8/11 without air, exhaling life, I the soul of women, the scars of the universe.
    The back that my brother shall lean.

    I man knowest thou only by thy words sublime
    am most proud to call thee sister!!!
