    By pointing the finger continually
    We underscore the inefficiency of we
    I heard a poem one day about We
    And the poem said about We
    “AND STILL I RISE”
    We must RISE above our knees
    We are not unleavened
    We have in our DNA
    The yeast of Kings and Queens
    We rose before
    We must rise again
    We have been placed in the heat
    We can now burn each other with bullets of self-hate
    Or rise with dignity and avoid the tragedy
    It is time we rise above the poverty, drugs and self hate
    In The mirror we must not continue to see
    The
    Enemy
    We must envision nobility
    We must see the We in
    Nobility
    We must respect the Creators creations
    Beginning with Me
    For if I respect me
    I will love the me in We
    Because we are nobility
    And the dignity in nobility
    Is the yeast in We

    you know

    we see the problem
    but we are conditioned man

    somebody has to step up
    and change the way people think

    feeling your piece all the way
    we see the problem
    and know the solution

    but it's hard to get the movement started
