    The Truth Of Nothingness


    Struggle I
    through day
    through night
    Nubian King
    I am sanctioned to fight
    I fight race degradation
    fight my sistas humiliation
    while still increasing knowledge for my Nubian nation.
    I here(hear) for
    the wide-eyed child
    fully innocent
    sucking tiny fingers
    oh its so pleasant

    I here(hear) for
    child caressed
    within mothers arms
    child so content
    child fears no harm.
    As he gaze around
    and see how life abounds
    don’t dare take
    the imaginings away
    allow the child like
    innocence to stay
    at least for this little while.
    I mean not naiveté
    I mean the innocence of truth
    I mean not stupidity
    I mean the innocence of truth
    I mean not ignorance
    I mean the innocence of youth
    For this I fight
    warrior I am
    yet not one who’s inhumane
    not one who’s out the game
    not one who’s gone lame
    not one to be tamed
    not one of the same
    brothers you’ve
    ever met before
    for I am one who seeks
    to inner-stand
    that which is
    at the universal most
    and what lies there
    only those in syncopated harmony
    with life
    with nature
    with the universe
    with God (Jah)
    can understand the truth
    of nothingness
    the truth of nothingness
    the truth of nothingness
    the truth of nothingness
    you see flows through
    the epitome of silence
    which flips and slips
    into the eternal blackness of time and space.
