Song of Myself


Round of applause 
Picture me everyday on your tv screen
Hard to believe but it's possible
Am I living in the land of opportunity?
Not really
I am the hope of the pain stricken slave. 
The dream has been realized. 
And the revolution will be televised. 

Sugar coated and meek.
No. No. Not I.
I'll always rise to the occasion.
So sleep with one eye open, because the moment that you rest is when I'm coming in for the kill

In the words of Muhammad Ali, "I am the greatest." 
Humbled by the past and energized by the future. 

A wise man once told me, "Fear is  false evidence appearing real." With my third eye on the chicanery of this wicked system.
I am aware that the only thing and 
the only one I fear  is God. 

Mama. Daddy. Sister. Brother. Family and friends. 
Everyone must take their own journey and will have to stand before him alone on judgement day.
When I wake up in the morning, I take responsibility for myself. No one else can do that for me.

The time is quickly is quickly approaching. Trailblazer. Trendsetter. 

Stand up. 
Put your hands together and show your love. 
Round of applause.
