Preparation is necessary before you start; the journey is tough and rough
The powerful do not want to secede they hold on by devious means, do not be afraid to call their bluff
Allow divide and conquer to work no more in their favor, that mantra is not good stuff.
Your ancestors paid the prize for your freedom, you cannot let them down, you have got to turn things around, stop acting dumb
The scars on their back, humiliation through sexual attack such wicked acts makes your body numb
They paved the way for you to keep on fighting for your rightful place in the human race your equal rights to live and be free
You cannot stop now, now you are under attack, hold fast unto your God, equality and justice you have got to see.
Authorities heavily armed will give no second thoughts of eliminating, decimating, or handcuffing you preventing your search for justice in the name of the law
Change they do not need, success through greed profiteering through the law’s flaw they want to see you crawl
You have got to understand, you have got to take a stand before you stall, and your back is forced against a brick wall
Stand tall, walk; crawl tall if necessary in your fight against racism, injustice, inequality, for your rightful place among the human race, acknowledgement by the global environment of your black face without a shawl.
