    UNTITLED
    …words of birds
    waking me 4 prayer early in the morning,
    watching the Sun rise & set,
    cloud formations, stars in constellations…

    growth of greenery & blooms,
    witnessing my people come forth
    from mental & spiritual tombs…

    marches of over a million families & men
    coming 2gether to mend, atone & start again,
    rallies refusing blood 4 oil or demanding reparations…

    consuming stories & accounts of courage & strength
    of ancestors who abide w/n my soul,
    move me to offer libation in 4 directions to those
    who lived & died that i may reside in this very moment…inspiration…

    i stumbled upon a page,
    read an article that amazed
    yes, indeed, it fazed me…
    i’ve gotta speak!
    this place is unique…
    i speak
    a post from his richness
    initiated a welcome which embodied
    encouragement, warmth & peace
    all @ once
    one after another
    a sistah, a brotha… more inspiration…
    my cup runneth over
    spirit tells me to sing…

    (singing) lift every voice & sing…
    …whatever you got
    music, word, motion – emotion
    political, mental, spiritual – all that
    to the table you bring…
    a variety of dishes
    of food 4 thought brought to the table
    it’s a blessing to partake
    in such a righteous feast
    with people like me
    fighting to overcome the beast
    while dwelling in its belly…

    (singing) lift every voice & sing
    till earth & heaven ring,
    ring w/the harmonies of liberty…
    …as we flow & grow we create today’s hieroglyphs
    of this renaissance unfolding embolden us in truth
    LET IT RING! it’s setting us free
    where you can be you, I can be me… where we are really free
    let it flow… watch us grow!
    it’s so promising
    that’s all I think, all I see
    here @ destee’s there is liberty…

    (singing) let our rejoicing rise, high as the listening sky
    let it resound loud as a rolling sea…
    …i rejoice, i rejoice!
    thanking Almighty God for this voice
    my voice, your voice… our voice
    let it resound… oooohhh…. let it resound
    can you feel it?… I do… let it flow… watch us grow…

    (singing) sing a song, full of the faith that the dark past has taught us sing a song, full of the hope that the present has brought us!
    …so many people, experiences
    & things bring inspiration,
    everything in the world around me
    that I feel, smell, hear & see…
    even things I can’t grasp w/senses
    for if I never see y’all face 2 face
    know that in my heart y’all have a place…
    you’ve helped me tap into new dimensions
    igniting ascension to elevated places…
    @ destee’s I know we as a people w/n & w/o
    no doubt we will have victory in this struggle
    for I truly believe thru you, thru me
    God is igniting inspiration for all of us…

    (singing) facing the rising Sun of our new day begun…
    let us march on till victory is won!

    peace

    thankx for the scenario :)

    and when your new day's dawn has come
    when peace fills the air...like the rising sun
    when laughter booms from every room
    and every month is like this month of june
    and all i can see...everywhere
    sistahz and bruthaz waiting to share
    all that's in their hearts to give
    here, on Destee's playground
    where baller lives.

    BEAUTIFUL, NADIA*BINTA
